When the Galaxy S8 and S8+ launched, pre-order customers could score a free Samsung Gear VR to go with their new smartphone. That was a limited time offer, but it looks like a new one has taken its place.
Samsung is offering a free Gear VR with Controller to T-Mobile customers that buy a Galaxy S8 or S8+. This offer is available to customers that buy a GS8 or GS8+ between April 28 and May 14. However, T-Mobile’s FAQ for the offer says that GS8 and GS8+ units purchased between April 21 and April 27 also qualify.
This offer is available to customers that buy a GS8 or GS8+ on EIP, JUMP! On Demand, or at full price from T-Mobile, a T-Mo dealer, Costco, military store, T-Mobile.com, telesales, or Customer Care.
Once you’ve bought your GS8 or GS8+, you’ll need to head to this Samsung Promotions page between May 10 and May 28 to register for your free Gear VR.
The Samsung Gear VR normally sells for $129.99, so this is a nice little gift for customers that buy a Galaxy S8 or S8+, especially for those folks that didn’t preorder an S8 or S8+ and missed out on the original offer. Just remember that if you do take advantage of this new deal, you can’t register until May 10, so you might want to make a note on your calendar.
