Samsung offers a free Gear VR or DeX Station with any Galaxy S8 or Note 8 purchase

If you plan to buy a high-end Samsung smartphone, there are plenty of offers that you can take advantage of, not to mention that you'll most certainly be getting better deals on Black Friday if you wait until the end of the month.

Samsung is now running a promotion that would allow customers who purchase one of its 2017 flagships to get some free stuff in the process. The deal is only available in the United States via Samsung's online store.

While the South Korean company does mention that this is a limited time offer, it doesn't say when it will end. In any case, if you buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 (from $725) you will be able to choose between a free Gear VR or DeX Station. The same goes for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which starts from $950.

More importantly, you get the free accessories regardless of any other deals Samsung has in place for its flagships such as the option to trade-in your old smartphone and save up to $300. Also, you can choose the unlocked version of the Galaxy S8 or Note 8, as well as any US carrier version (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and U.S. Cellular).

"if you buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 (from $725) you will be able to choose between a free Gear VR or DeX Station" Gear VR (with controller) over DeX station any day.

Both are throw-away devices.

If you ever do purchase an S8/S8+ Note 8, please don't hesitate to throw the Gear VR with controller to my mailbox.

I have been playing with DEX and its actually not bad. Especially on a 4K TV as everything is up-scaled to 4K. More apps are added daily to support the feature. Works and looks like a typical Windows desktop, and its clean and not cluttered. Haven't found a practical use for it yet. The only downside is the HDMI appears to not support sound output, so I have to use BT an d that sucks because the audio is delayed vs what is happening. But overall its a cool feature. Whether its worth the $100+ if you buy it, is up to the buyer. Got mine new off eBay for $80. No regrets!

I just got my free wireless charger and SD card for buying the Note8 yesterday. I totally would have went with the VR if I had had the choice.

I wonder how much Samsung’s net revenue is on their high end devices since they always seem to throw in free s**t as a way to entice customers.
