Re: Trade up Experience

you are  getting  a discount  through the trade up and  not just  getting a camera alone so they  do  take the time to process thing longer. if it was a new camera you get it a lot faster that is how this company does their Business

Re: Trade up Experience

@fishycomics it was a hero 5 that I bought a year ago. Perfect condition. Not like a 13 year old Flip.

Re: Trade up Experience

You could have  Auctioned that off   then lose out of 300.00 plus I rather give like said that  fairly new Yi4K camera worth  nothing .

Re: Trade up Experience

@fishycomics Good point. I thought of that after the fact. But never had good luck getting what I want for it since it feels the sale market is saturated with old GoPro. I should've just kept it.

Re: Trade up Experience

GoPro offered us $100.00  they'll turn that gopro around and profit. if gopro offers a Trade up they could have at least upped the gopro only cameras  then make it  a even trade across the board I say.  Eitehr way I am sure you will be Happy i was.
