Samsung lets you choose between a free Gear 360 and Gear VR now with the Galaxy Note 9
Cut off one Galaxy Note 9 deal, two more shall take its place. Technically, two new special offers seem to have replaced two discontinued promotions, but you get the idea. 

Of course, not all bundle deals are created equal, although it remains to be seen if Samsung will convince more people to pull the trigger for a free Gear 360 or Gear VR than a complimentary Gear Fit 2 Pro or a $99 Gear S3 Frontier/wireless charging stand combo.

If you’re not sure about the free TV offered by Best Buy alongside the Galaxy Note 9, S9, and S9+, the exact same phones can be purchased directly from Samsung with your choice of a Gear 360 or Gear VR thrown in at no extra cost through October 31.

You can opt for an unlocked or carrier-specific variant of any of those three handsets, but keep in mind they don’t come cheap. The Note 9 fetches a whopping $999.99, while the Galaxy S9 and S9+ start at $620 and $740 respectively.


Normally, a 2017-released Samsung Gear 360 camera costs $229.99, with a Gear VR headset available for $130 or so (controller included), though both gadgets have scored important discounts at various retailers on numerous occasions over the past few months.

You should also keep in mind the latest Samsung Gear VR generation is only compatible with the Galaxy Note 9 with a free adapter you need to separately claim. If you don’t have a problem with that, you know what to do. Or you could always wait until October 31 and hope Samsung will replace this with a better deal.
