Samsung outs a new set of free Note 9 gifts, for those who failed to pre-order
It's hard to argue with free gifts, and when it comes to Samsung, it always sweetens the pot for its flagship phone prices. In the case of the Note 9 the freebies serve not for sweetening, but to cushion the $999 blow, and Samsung just swapped one set of free gifts for another, for those who get it from today onwards.

Initially, pre-order customers were eligible to receive one set of AKG Noise Cancelling headphones or a Fortnite Game Bundle, worth $150. The Note 9 buyers could also choose to receive both items for an additional $99 which made the whole thing even sweeter.

From today onwards, however, Note 9 buyers that snatch the phone directly from Samsung, can pick the new Duo wireless charger for free, plus any Note 9 cover of their choice. For extra $99, they could get those two freebies, plus the 2018 IconX truly wireless earphones, which is basically half-off for the buds. The Duo charger is $120, the IconX set is $200, and the official Note 9 covers can reach $65 for the LED one, so you are saving a good deal on a needed accessory set.

Why not wait after 3 months for mark down up to 30% off. These free gifts are just junks.

You can't sell them for full retail price.

Obviously, but you can still sell them and get some money back. Better than nothing.

The people who opt for those "junks" won't think so.

Nothing beats Sony for a giveaway. It's a damn PS4! But for Samsung, only headsets? Lol!

Why iphone X costs a buck and don’t come with free stuff but still sells like hotcakes. Not to mention about buying extra accessories too. Was it because people who buy iPhones don’t care about pricing and specs like many tech savvy here. Where sammy and other android OEMs are trying hard to sell their flagships.

It's because humans are herd mentality for the most part. The best selling item is often not the best item.

In truth I find these offers to be more compelling than the pre-order offers.
