New Year deal: Samsung Galaxy S7 edge comes with a free Gear Fit 2

Samsung Mobile USA wants you to "get fit for the New Year", so it's currently offering free Gear Fit 2 wearables (normally $129.99 a piece) to buyers of its Galaxy S7 edge smartphone. In order to qualify for the offer, you must purchase a Galaxy S7 edge before January 15. Interestingly, you can get the handset either unlocked, or on any of the four major US carriers - Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

If you're purchasing the Galaxy S7 edge directly from Samsung's online store (see the first source link below), you can add a free Gear Fit 2 to your cart before checkout and that's it - you'll get the wearable without needing to register for it. If you're purchasing the S7 edge from somewhere else, you'll have to register for the free gift via the Samsung promo page found at the second source link below.

Best Buy also seems to be offering a free Gear Fit 2, but the info that it's currently providing is confusing. As you can see at the third source link below, Best Buy says that you can get any of the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, and Galaxy S7 Active "with a monthly installment plan for Verizon, AT&T or Sprint" and receive a Gear Fit 2 at no extra cost. Plus, Best Buy is taking $150 off the price of the S7. However, the retailer is sending customers to the same Samsung promo page mentioned above, which has it that only the Galaxy S7 edge is included in the deal. We've contacted Best Buy for further clarification, but have not heard back yet.

Dear Samsung, get your damn iOS support out ASAP. If you want your Gear line to become even more popular, get with it.

These kinds of deals are annoying to early adopters, personally I wish companies would go "show us your proof of purchase and you can get x off normal price of the product as reward for already having purchased the product and being an early adopter" You know rather then having to buy an entirely new one, goes for a ton of offers.
