How to save money at GoPro this Cyber Monday
For those shoppers who just can’t get enough savings, there’s Cyber Monday 2020. Occurring on the Monday following Thanksgiving, this shopping holiday is typically reserved for online buyers. Because there’s no need to head to a local store, you don’t have to worry about lines or even getting dressed.
If you’re hoping to score big discounts during GoPro’s Cyber Monday 2020 sale, you’ll want to team up with Savings.com. It’s the best place to find GoPro coupons and the latest deals about what the store has planned for its exciting shopping event.
As exciting as deals are, it’s important to remember that we’re in the middle of a pandemic. That means we need to think twice about every move we make and consider how the businesses we’re shopping are working to keep us safe.
GoPro doesn’t have any retail locations, so this is one store where you don’t have to worry about wearing a mask or social distancing. The store is also always open online, so you’re free to shop anytime—even if it’s the middle of the night.
However, there are many retailers who carry GoPro merchandise. If you’re going to shop at one of these stores, be sure to follow the advice and requests of those stores.
GoPro is maintaining its return policy through the COVID-19 outbreak. This means you can return unwanted merchandise for up to 30 days after purchase. If you want to make a return, you’ll need to obtain an RMA number online. From there, mail your parcel back and wait for your refund. Keep in mind that GoPro doesn’t usually offer free returns, so you may need to pay for shipping and hold on to your receipt in case something goes wrong.
Also remember that GoPro will not accept returns of products you purchased from third-party retailers. If you buy a new camera or accessory at Walmart, Target or Kohls, you’ll need to return that purchase to the store where you made your purchase. Likewise, retailers will not accept returns of products that were purchased directly from GoPro.
GoPro hasn’t divulged what its Cyber Monday 2020 plans are, but we can take a guess by reviewing previous sales.
In 2018, GoPro combined its Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales into one big celebration. The deals were released on Wednesday, November 21st and were valid until midnight PST on Monday, November 26th.
During that year’s Cyber Monday event, the company’s HERO7 was the latest release, so Cyber Monday savings revolved around it. You could score the Silver for $229.99 and the White for $179.99.
When you purchased the HERO7 Black for $399.99, you received a free 32GB memory card, rechargeable battery and Chesty chest mount.
In 2019, GoPro went with another Black Friday-Cyber Monday combo sale, but it was a lot shorter. It started on Friday and ended on Monday night.
The HERO8 was the brand’s latest release then, so shoppers had the opportunity to save $50 on the HERO8 Black. If you went with the Black Bundle, which included the camera, memory card, stick grip and battery, you saved $100.
Based on what’s happened in previous years, there’s a good chance that GoPro will combine its sales again this year. The store seems to like simplicity, and there’s nothing simpler than a long weekend of good deals.
As GoPro’s latest model in 2020 is the HERO9, you should expect to see lots of related deals. In addition to steep discounts, look out for bundles with all the accessories you need. You may also see deals on GoPro’s subscription service.
Even though the store hasn’t previously focused on accessories, it seems like that could be a good angle for shoppers who are excited about GoPro but may not be ready for a new camera seeing as they’re staying at home whenever possible.
Another exciting possibility for Cyber Monday 2020 is free shipping and free returns. The store did it in 2019, and we imagine that it was a big hit. With any purchase, you qualified for free two-day shipping and free returns for 30 days.
Assuming that GoPro continues tradition and marks down the HERO9, you should consider picking up some accessories.
You’ll get some goodies, like an extra battery and SD card, if you choose a bundle. However, GoPros are such versatile cameras that the possibilities are endless. Choose a bike mount so you can take your camera everywhere you ride. You never know what kinds of interesting things you may capture.
If you plan to take your new GoPro along for socially-distanced holiday get-togethers, a handgrip or tripod are a must. These accessories allow you to capture the action from different angles. They’re also great for when you want to be in the photos and videos you take.
No matter how you plan to use your new GoPro, it’s a good idea to at least purchase a carrying case. Made to protect your camera when it’s not in use, cases with handles also make it easier to grab your camera and go.
Another purchase you should strongly consider is a GoPro Subscription. Available for under $5 a month, a subscription offers you unlimited cloud storage so you can film and photograph to your heart’s content. You’ll also be protected against damage or loss with total camera replacement. The company will ask no questions about what happened and replace your camera up to twice per year. Last, you’ll qualify for 50% off GoPro gear like mounts and accessories.
