Samsung sweetens Galaxy Note 10+ deal with free Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Fit

Samsung sweetens Galaxy Note 10+ deal with free Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Fit
There's no denying the Galaxy Note 10+ is among the best all-around smartphones in the world, quite possibly retaining the Android heavyweight title of some of its forerunners to challenge the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max for the overall crown, but just like Apple's latest and greatest, Samsung's newest jumbo-sized powerhouse might feel a little prohibitive for a lot of people.

To help take some of the sting out of spending at least $1,000, the mobile industry's top vendor is currently selling both the 4G LTE-only and 5G-enabled variants of the Note 10 Plus alongside a couple of neat freebies. We're talking about the true wireless Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Fit wearable device, which will automatically be added to your cart on Samsung's official US website while ordering the Note 10+ or Note 10+ 5G.

The only inconvenient thing about this process is that you don't seem to be able to choose your preferred color for either the affordable activity tracker or wireless headphones. Instead, you need to settle for a black paint job as far as both items are concerned, which is obviously not that big of an inconvenience. Not when dealing with a pair of accessories typically valued at a combined 230 bucks or so.

Even better, these very cool gifts can also be bundled with massive trade-in discounts, as well as YouTube Premium and Spotify Premium promotions granting you free access to the two streaming services for four and six months respectively. All in all therefore, you can end up saving far more than $230 by purchasing an ultra-high-end handset that's pretty much impossible to beat in terms of processing speed and display quality, while also shining as far as battery life and charging times are concerned, not to mention S Pen productivity and storage space.

Keep in mind that the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G is still available exclusively for Verizon use, whereas the "regular" Note 10 Plus is up for grabs in an unlocked variant compatible with all major US carriers, as well as designed specifically for every one of those mobile network operators.

Great deal, but the Active Watch 2, would be a truly killer deal. I know that’s not happening anytime soon, but hey. I bought one yesterday, and it’s been sweet so far.

So far, I don't have a favorite thing. I love the looks of it, the battery life is great so far, and the heart rate monitor seems to be greatly improved due to the added LED's. It looks super sweet, and is bigger than it seems.

Hows the battery life ? I almost bought it yesterdy but then got confused after seeing Galaxy watch. I'm not sure if I should jump the gun and get active or wait for Galaxy watch 2 as my Gear s3 is still working fine like day one.

So far, it's been great. I put my Apple Watch away for the next ten days, to thoroughly test the Active 2, so I'll really test it this week out in the wild, and with workouts.

Samsung sells so much, of so many products, they can do things like this. They're not as greedy, and restrictive as Apple. They also make better devices, and much better software.

Incentives are never out of the kindness and less greedy nature of a company. They are to help sell product. It is to add to perceived value. Samsung makes high feature software for sure. Not always the best polish, and their customer service is poor in my experience. Cancelled a pre order phone, got a bill for monthly payment. Took them 2 months to get it worked out, all the while I had to make payments on a phone I didn’t even receive, just so I didn’t get late charges and failure to pay on my credit score. Then they issued me a refund for the 2 months payment about 8 weeks later. So 4 months for a phone I never received. They are far from the butterflies and rainbows company your describing.

Besides not receiving the phone, the timeframe on the refund is about right. May have tried a chargeback, thats always an option. I've had similar with a hospital bill, little different, but similar problems resolving.
