Deal alert: get a free Gear 360 or 128GB microSD card and wireless charging pad with your Note8
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is official, and it will be available for preorder starting August 24th. To sweeten the deal, Samsung is tacking on freebies for preorders within the first month. If you preorder / buy a Galaxy Note 8 any time between August 24th and September 24th, it’ll come with your choice of either a free Samsung Gear 360 camera or a charging bundle — specifically, the “Galaxy Foundation Kit” bundle, valued at $190, which contains a free 128GB EVO+ memory card and wireless charging pad. The promotional period includes the time when the preorders go out and when major retailers like Best Buy and Walmart and carriers including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon begin to carry the Galaxy Note 8 on September 15th.
The second-gen Gear 360 was announced back in May and retails for around $229. While it does have the higher alleged retail value of the two items on offer, I’d have to take the second bundle myself. A 128GB microSD card is an easy sale, and the convertible fast wireless charging pad is super handy to keep next to the bed or on your desk at home.
