GoPro is by far the largest direct-to-consumer vendor of cameras in the world.
All those crazy YouTube videos you see of guys jumping out of airplanes, snowboarding down treacherous mountains, or surfing gigantic waves were all likely filmed using a GoPro camera.
I’ve had a few people reach out to me asking whether or not GoPro offers a military discount to active duty members.
The simple answer to that question is — they do!

GoPro Military Discount #1 – GoPro.com
The easiest way to save on GoPro equipment if you’re a current or former military member, a first responder (i.e. firefighter, EMS, etc.), or law enforcement is by purchasing directly from GoPro.
When we first listed a GoPro military discount in 2019, they were only available through GovX. GovX is a non-profit organization that partners with brands that offer discounts on select items.
They work essentially as an intermediary between some of the top brands in the world, and members of the armed services.
They also donate proceeds to a variety of non-profit organizations that support veterans and first responders.

One of those brands was, you guessed it, GoPro.
Unfortunately, they no longer offer GoPro products on the site. However, they do offer some accessories, so it’s worth taking a look at the site.
The good news is that GoPro now offers a 15% discount directly to current and former military members and first responders.
OMK double-checked with GoPro and discovered that now you can receive a military discount on the site by verifying your service with ID.me.
How to Use the GoPro Military Discount
To use your discount, simply go to the GoPro “Heros” page here.
You’ll need to verify your military service with ID.me, but that’s easy to accomplish directly from the GoPro website.
ID.me is an online verification service used by many U.S. government agencies, including the Department of Veterans Affairs, the IRS, and the Social Security Administration.
In fact, if you’ve been searching for military discounts online, you may have already set up an ID.me account.
Restrictions on the GoPro Military Discount
There are a few restrictions on the 15% discount. It’s only available on full-price items, so you won’t be able to stack sales and discounts.
You may also need to have documentation handy in order to verify your military service through ID.me.

GoPro Discount #2 – Students
One prominent discount that GoPro features on its site is the student discount.
Sure, this doesn’t exactly help everyone who is serving in the military.
With that said, there are thousands of military members who are currently enrolled in college in conjunction with their military service.
Here’s a step-by-step process on how to save if you’re both in the military and a student:
Step 1: Click Here to visit the official GoPro student discount page.
Step 2: Click ‘Join Now’
Step 3: Fill out the form
Step 4: Verify your status as a student
For this, you simply need to click the “Verify” button on the right-hand side of the page and go through the verification process.
GoPro offers 2 ways to verify your status as a student, including:
1. Verify through their launch portal.
Once you select your school and click “Launch Portal,” it will open up a new window that acts as a web authentication service.
This is what you would see if you were attending NJIT, which is where I went to college:
Once you authenticate, you’ll be good to go. The other way to verify your college enrollment is to…
2. Verify through your school email address.
The other alternative is to verify via your school email. After selecting your school, simply click on the “Verify using email” button, enter in your personal school email address 2 times, and click “Send email.”
They will send you an email that will have a link to confirm your email address.
Once you’ve verified that you’re currently enrolled in one of the thousands of colleges in the US, you’ll get 15% off the HERO11 Black camera.
GoPro Discount Method #3 – Discount Codes
The other alternative to the student discount is through a good old-fashioned discount code.
Merchants like GoPro routinely offer discount codes to help boost business, and they can be as little as 5% off your order to as much as 50%!
Here is one that we recently found (subject to change at any time):
- $50 off Hero11 Black: No coupon code, simply visit their website at GoPro.com.
There are a ton of other discount and coupon codes available online. Luckily, you’ll find the latest coupon codes on sites like SlickDeals.
We think it’s awesome that GoPro has finally decided to offer a military discount for 2023.
