Trade up program

I've already purchased my trade up but can't find the camera I wanted to trade up. Does a galaxy s7 plus phone with its integrated camera count?
Thanks

Re: Trade up program

@aaronn065, only digital camera (any model) from any brand is eligible for trade-in as long as it was at least $99.99 USD new. You can find more information about the TradeUp Program here.

Re: Trade up program

Last I checked Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus has a built in camear/video camera and it's was obviously worth several times the minimum $99 initial purchase price.   So, if you're accepting broken "cameras" why would you not accept cell phones that most people are using as cameras now days?

 

From your own FAQs:  Why does GoPro want my camera?  
It’s not so much that we want your old camera. We just want to make it easy for you to get your hands on the latest and greatest GoPro. 

 

So, if you obviously don't care about the camera being received then why wouldn't you "make it easy for us to get our hands on the latest and greatest GoPro" as stated?

Re: Trade up program

I appreciate the input, @snowywave67654. As per the terms and conditions of this program, the purpose is to offer and provide a trade-in option for eligible digital cameras.

Re: Trade up program

You would think it is a camera and  meets the  list, on the terms does it say no smartphones?    or any broken camera's   Juat as long as it is a 100.00 camera?
