Last year, GoPro ran a 60-day promotion to upgrade and save: Send in your old GoPro and get a Hero5 for up to $100 off. It's now relaunching the program, seemingly indefinitely, but GoPro will take any digital camera in exchange.
With the new Trade-Up program, you can send in any GoPro or literally any other digital camera -- and in any condition -- and you'll get $50 off a Hero6 Black or $100 off the company's 360-degree Fusion camera. In January, GoPro dropped the price of the Hero6 Black, from $500 to $400, so with the trade it'll be $350. If you opt for the Fusion, the price comes down to $600.
To get the deal, you just have pick the model you want, go through the purchasing process, and you'll get a shipping label to send in your old shooter. Once GoPro gets it, it'll put through your discounted order and ship out your Hero6 or Fusion. GoPro says all the cameras it receives will be responsibly recycled.
