Samsung is leaving no stone unturned to promote its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagship smartphones. In a bid to entice customers to preorder the flagship devices, Samsung has launched many exciting promotions on major network carriers in the United States.
The latest offer is for Sprint subscribers, who will be rewarded with an eCertificate worth $100, upon preordering either the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ from the Samsung online store.
Those purchasing the Sprint variant of the smartphones are also entitled to a free Samsung Gear VR Controller.
The offer is valid till April 17, 12:00 p.m. EDT and is applicable only for those preordering any of the two devices by the said date. Customers who preordered the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ will receive their handset within April 20, along with the free gifts.
Sprint's $100 eCertificate Offer
This limited period deal is available only on Sprint and the eCertificate, which the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8+ owners will receive, will not be in the form of a direct discount.
Customers will be able to redeem the eCertificate amount on the purchase of any other Samsung smartphone in the future. This purchase needs to be made on the company's online store.
Interestingly, the eCertificate promo is limited to Sprint and no other network carrier in the country is offering this deal.
To purchase the 64 GB Sprint variant of the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ and avail the limited period offer, one can head to Samsung's online store.
Consumers will also get the Samsung Gear VR headset worth $99.99 free when they preorder either of the smartphones. This means that one is effectively saving $200 on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
Samsung Infinitely Immersive Offer
Samsung also has the Infinitely Immersive promotional offer for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ preorders. This promo includes the Bundle Gift offer and the Box Gift offer.
Under the Bundle Gift offer, both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ customers will receive the Samsung Gear VR with the controller bundle and the Oculus content bonus, which is redeemable as a digital download from the Oculus Store. The price of the Sprint variant of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ with the bundle offer comes to $750 and $850, respectively.
Under the Box Gift offer, customers will receive the Gear VR headset with a controller, Oculus content, one pair of AKG Y50BT black headphones, and also a 256 GB microSD card. Consumers opting for the Box Gift offer will have to pay an additional $99 while preordering the smartphone.
The Box Gift offer raises the price of the Galaxy S8 to $849.99 and the Galaxy S8+ to $949.99 for the Sprint variant of both the handsets.
"Participants may choose either the Bundle Gift or the Box Gift (requires additional $99 payment), but may not choose both. One Gift per Qualifying Purchase, while supplies remain available," stated Samsung.
Both the Bundle Gift and Box Gift offers are also available on AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile.
