Samsung running a BOGO deal with T-Mobile - buy one Galaxy S8 or S8+, get one free

Samsung is running a new Galaxy S8 promo in America that's an alternate take on T-Mobile's BOGO campaign from earlier in May. The way it works is as follows. You buy two Galaxy S8 phones from the Magenta carrier through Samsung.com and activate at least one. Sammy sends you a rebate card worth $750, so the second Galaxy S8 is on the company.

On top of that, you will get Samsung's Entertainment Kit as a present. It includes a six month Netflix subscription, a 64GB microSD card, and a Clear View Standing cover to let you prop the smartphone in landscape mode and comfortably watch videos. Here's how the kit looks:

To qualify, you must register the activated device at Samsung's website by the time of purchase, or within 14 days of receiving the phone. T-Mobile's base model (64GB) prices for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are $750 ($31.25 per month for 24 months) and $850 ($35.42 per month for 24 months).

I thought those things were flying off the shelves in record numbers and Samsung could not keep up. At least, that's what Samsung wanted us to think a few weeks ago. Barely a month in they are running a buy one get one free promotion already. No wonder their ASP stands at $180.

The s7 was realeased with BOGO sales across all carriers. What does that have to do with sales?

That's exactly what I thought too... If they are selling like hot cakes why are they giving away phones for free along with "Entertainment kit" HA HA HAAAA.

I'm very sorry that Samsung's existence personally offends you.

Tmobile does that on every phone, even your "king iphone" was on BOGO first month when it launched. You suck at trolling

"At least, that's what Samsung wanted us to think " 1. Please provide a link to the quote/statement from Samsung Electronics or Samsung Everland, or Samsung Group on this. You seem pretty sure of yourself so I know you can do it easily. 2. Since when does a BOGO deal mean a device isn't selling. I assume you have some data on this. Or, maybe, corporations plan their marketing campaigns well ahead of time. Unless you think they thought of it yesterday and got T-Mobile to sign a contract and ran with it in a matter of hours. 3. If a deal is run in conjunction with a carrier, I'm quite sure the device is subsidized(aka funded by the carrier/sold). You know what a subsidy is, right? It's the way 85% of iPhones are sold....usually to people calling everyone else poor all while they are leasing a cell phone. 4. Maybe you are simply projecting your hopes of Samsung's failure based on a sale that that no analyst, carrier, leaker has suggested has any correlation with the sells? Maybe you're doing this because the S8 is likely better than whatever device you have slowly charging from a proprietory cable plugged into your wall right now. See, I can assume things with no empirical evidence too. But if you're right, I guess we'll see Samsung Group make that bankruptcy filing next week.

But that is a carrier deal. His claim of what i saud ia bullsh*t. He knows it and i know it. The only thing i ever saud was, the haters would call carrier deals Samsung deals. Samsung has never had BOGO deals. I never said tbey would never have them.

Hi. Got anything that is done via store.apple.com?

@MrElectrifyer - That's not Apple, that's AT&T running this deal to get folks to sign up for directv-now. Completely different than what Samsung is running here. Apple do not run those deals themselves, if the carriers wants to it's on them.

Except, last time I checked, carriers can't set their own pricing on iPhones. apple is well known for dictating what carriers can or can't do when selling iDevices. Heck, they were even fined for it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0c9sEmFc0o Not hard to imagine apple dictating this to the carriers in the backend and they make it appear like it's the carriers themselves...

22. willard12 unregistered

What difference does it make if Apple or the carrier is running the sale? According to you, a sale is done when devices aren't selling. So why does it matter if the carrier says their sells are horrible or if Apple say their sells are horrible?

23. willard12 unregistered

It's not "on them" . You are clueless. Apple dictates through illegal contracts what deals they run by dictating the amount of device's carriers have to buy.http://www.phonearena.com/news/French-agency-sues-Apple-for-55.3-million-over-illegal-carrier-contracts_id79953

You know what's different between you and Techie? The brand you worship and the length of your comments. I don't see a big difference in intelligence (or lack of) level. On the bright side, you keep your retarded trolling comments short and simple and without typos, so I'll take you over Techie.

Samsung is feeling the heat very early this year. Happy to see some healthy competition finally. LG G6, OP5,HTC U11, GS7/GS7Edge, OP3T, Pixel/Pixel XL, LG V30, P10, Mi 6..... And when the king iPhone 8 is nearing Samsung will have to do some insane advertising or lose the game....lol

What do BOGO deals have to do wirh sales? BoGo deals encourage salea whether they are good or bad. Bogo deals have bewn happening on many flagships. You are assuming BOGO deals are only due to bad sales? Hah! You hateres are a riot. The iPhone 7 was free since day one PreOrder and BOGo deals came right at Black Friday. I guess it was because of low sales based on your failed logic?

In fairness this promotion is a collaboration between Samsung and T-Mobile, however T-Mobile is being the one directly handling the reimbursement and approval of the deal. If we look back at the past 2 years of promotions from either the Carrier or the OEM, usually there is a BOGO or a chance for a free / heavily reduced cost during the time of launch,usually by adding a line with qualifying port or sometimes through a qualified device trade in. LG has done it, Samsung has done it, Apple has done it. Ends up being a win win for the consumer and t-mobile. The consumer gets a hot new device at a discount and the carriers win by growing their subscriber base and increasing churn rates in their competitors.

The iPhone 7 also sold like hot cakes, yet it still had BOGO deals.
