Just an FYI - I was trying to claim one of my promotions at
www.samsungpromotions.com. However when I did it online, I kept gettign an error when you get to the point where you have to provide your IMEI# and WIFI MAC Address.

So I am suggesting a better and faster route.

If you download Samsung Shop from the Galaxy Apps store, you can sign in with your Samsung ID and claim your promo here.

This will be quicker. Just download a copy of your receipt from the carrier first as a PDF or JPG. If you have T-Mobile, there is one page in your EIP you can use which shows the phones cost and that you agreed to the EIP which also qualifies as a receipt.

Put the file on your phone, and you can just attach it to the promo and you wont have ot deal with the online registration error.

Samsung was over=whelmed with registrations for those who got early deliveries and we kept gettign kicked or the server wasn't excepting the registrations.

I opted for the premium $579 package for $99...you can't beat that deal!

Back on topic...very nice deal Sprint.

ATT is also offering BOGO on the S8 only if you sign up on ATT Next.

Samsung is really trying to get people to get the S8. They should have made a version that is flat, not curved.

Except these bogo promotions are by the Carrier not Samsung. So this is Sprint trying to pull customers

I'm pretty sure Samsung is in on it.

But they aren't, Sprint takes the hit of giving away the free device but in return both the existing and new customer must remain on the sprint plan for 2 years or be liable for paying off the FRP of the device. It gets them a new line of service which makes them and their share holders happy.

had it been a Samsung promotion, like the Free Gear VR, then the BOGO would be available regardless of your carrier

Yeah, but then you'd have to set up on Sprint.
