If you’re a GoPro customer who purchased and received the Karma, you’ve probably already heard about the recall. You might, however, be hesitant to return yours if you’ve not yet had it fall out of the sky. Indeed, it may fly perfectly for you, and never show any issues. You might be happy just keeping your Karma and not bothering to get your money back.
I get the feeling that GoPro aren’t seeing as many returns as they’d hoped for. So, they are are sweetening the deal a little now. Everybody who ordered their Karma from the USA who returns their Karma to GoPro will also be getting a free GoPro Hero5 Black. Yes, that’s right, free, gratis, and for nothing.
All you have to do is return your Karma, along with all the accessories that came with it (yes, including the Hero5 Black if you ordered it with one). Then you will receive your full refund, along with a shiny new Hero5 Black.
GoPro have updated their Karma returns FAQ with more information.
Q: Will I receive a refund for Karma?
A: Yes. You will receive a refund for your purchase. All components included with the Karma drone bundle, including HERO5 Black and Karma Grip, must be returned for a full refund. Once your complete return has been processed and refund issued we will send you a HERO5 Black as a thank you. For Best Buy customers to receive their HERO5 Black, please contact GoPro Customer Support directly and have your original transaction number available to confirm your product has been returned and processed at Best Buy.
So, if you’ve been holding onto your Karma, it’s time to let go. Really. Send it back, get your refund, get a free Hero5 Black, and go buy a Mavic Pro instead.
Are they going to have to rip your Karma from your cold dead hands? Or do you finally have enough incentive to send it back? Have you already sent yours back? Did you return it before they added this little extra? Did you receive a free Hero5 Black anyway? Let us know in the comments.
