GoPro Hero for Christmas?

Postby 3D87C4 » Thu Dec 18, 2014 10:55 am

I started a thread in another section...

Are there any US vendors here who can sell me 3 of the new, $129 hero & deliver by Christmas?

I ordered some from GoPro but they are back ordered.

Might be late for mail. If you are in the USA check on line at Walmart, Target, KMart BestBuy etc and see if they have any in store you can pick up. Have you checked Amazon?

Amazon said I'd exceeded my allocation---I'd already bought two for my boys---and refused to sell me more.

I know if you try and buy them on gopro.com they only let you purchase a certain amount so that might be what they are doing on amazon as well. To order multiple you have to call them but it seems like you already did that because you said they are on backorder. You should have some luck looking at actual stores like sidd finch said.

I realise that you've left your run a bit late, but can't you find a couple of friends to purchase from Amazon on your behalf?

Yeah....but I placed the orders last week...they could have made it clear then there was no hope.

The friends idea is good, though I suspect by now everyone is back ordered.

Two of the three recipients are OK, they'll get them when they get them, but the third lives in Australia and may not be at his folks house when/if the camera arrives. I've already given my brother a heads up and offered to cover the shipping cost if it has to be mailed.

I searched Target on line to see what stores had them in stock. Drove over and purchased one no issues. Happy hunting.

I sent GoPro support an email this morning 'splaining my Nephew situation and asking them to expedite that order & just got a ship notice on that one.

Bless 'em, they do try to please.

The other two have shipped as well. Not sure they'll arrive in time, but now I know they're on their way, whew!
