@markd2563 I bought one of them from GoPro directly. I did the trade up program. I tried to do a refund but gopro told me that I would lose the $100 that they credited me for my trade in. And they were NOT able to just send my trade up camera back to me. So I would have been minus $100. SO NOT RIGHT. The other camera I bought at REI. I wish I would have just dealt with REI on that one camera. Too late now. GoPro has both of them. Still waiting on the SECOND set of replacement cameras. SO FRUSTRATING.

It's spelled out in the Trade Up program agreement:
"Trade-in transactions are final; after you trade in your Eligible Used Device, you cannot get it back. Upon GoPro’s physical receipt of the Eligible Used Device and processing of the full payment for the Eligible New Devices by GoPro, title and ownership in the Eligible Used Device transfers to GoPro and you disclaim any further right, title or interest in and to the Eligible Used Device or any items (including without limitation memory cards) or data contained therein."
You agreed to this when you sent your old camera in for Trade Up.
Additionally, while GoPro usually does send out brand new replacements, they make no promises to do so in the warranty agreement, which you agreed to by keeping the camera past the return period. They do test the cameras before sending them out, so even a new camera will have some usage. However, if stock is low, then I'm sure they have to go to return/refurb cameras to be able to get replacements out in a reasonable time. The only thing GoPro is responsible for is, "GoPro's sole obligation in the event of such defects during this period is to repair or replace the defective part or product with a comparable part or product at GoPro's sole discretion."

As far as sending out USED / REFURBISHED cameras as a replacement to a BRAND NEW camera... that's wrong when you specifically TELL your customer that BRAND NEW cameras are coming. Don't send me a camera full of scratches and a power button that's so far pushed in that it doesn't work. That's just WRONG!
