Samsung’s new Father’s Day promo will give you a free Gear VR headset and “VR content experience” pack when you buy a Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, or Galaxy S7 edge. The offer is good on devices that you buy on an installment plan, lease, contract, or at full retail price, so you can choose the buying method that best fits you.
Whichever phone and payment method you choose, you’ll have to submit some info to Samsung before you get your Gear VR. That includes your name, address, and email address as well as your new phone’s IMEI and Wi-Fi MAC address. Once all that’s submitted and your request is approved, you’ll get your Gear VR in six to eight weeks.
Samsung’s promo runs from June 1 through June 19. If you do buy a qualifying phone, you’ll have until June 30 to submit your info.
While Gear VR isn’t quite the same as the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift since it doesn’t have a powerful gaming PC behind it, Samsung’s headset is still a nice VR viewer. Plus, it’s portable, which means that you can wear it around the house or even outside. So if you’ve been thinking about picking up a new Galaxy smartphone, you may want to do it soon so that you can score the $150 Gear VR bundle along with it.
