  • Target sold a GoPro Hero+ LCD bundle as one of its doorbuster deals. For $299.99, shoppers could score the camera, plus a free 64GB Lexar microSD card ($42.99 value) and a $60 Target gift card.
  • BJ’s Wholesale Club offered members the GoPro Hero3+ Silver for $199.99 (regularly $299.99) and included a free dual battery charger and an extra battery with purchase.
