If you pre-order the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge from certain retailers you have been promised free stuff, most often – the Gear VR headset ($99 value) with a bunch of compatible games. Samsung Promotions official website is now live and allows you to claim your freebies.
You must choose the retailer where you pre-ordered your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge and then you can learn what’s your prize.
AT&T, Metro PCS, Sam’s Club, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Walmart, Verizon’s Retail, pre-orders will receive Gear VR bundled with some compatible games. First they need to claim their prize via the Samsung Promotions website, otherwise they will not get any free stuff.
By the way, T-Mobile is throwing a 12-months free Netflix subscription in addition to the Gear VR bundle.
Users who pre-ordered at BestBuy, Costco, Sprint, and Target will get their Gear VR bundle delivered directly to their home without any further verification.
Verizon Online is the only retailer to allow you to choose between the Gear VR with six games bundle of the dark gray model or the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch (sold for $300 separately).
All who pre-order the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge between February 23 and March 18 are eligible for some free hardware. The supplies are limited though, so if those matter to you, consider placing an order sooner rather than later. The same goes for claiming the free stuff.
