As should be clear from the sheer number of companies trying to get into the mobile payment game, the ability to sit between smartphone users and the payment-processing networks of retailers has the potential to be pretty darn profitable. That’s led the companies involved to do everything in their power to broaden their user bases – including dangling some pretty attractive incentives. Over the past few months, we’ve seen Samsung try numerous deal to get the owners of its devices to start using Samsung Pay: free chargers, $50 cash, or even $200 hardware discounts. Now the company’s got a new one running, offering to hook new Samsung Pay users up with a free pair of wireless headphones.
Remember the old Samsung Gear Circle Bluetooth headphones? Samsung’s been refining its design since introducing those, and last year introduced the Gear Circle’s spiritual successor, the Level U wireless headphones. Normally, a pair will set you back just about $70, but as part of this Samsung Pay promotion, the company’s giving them away for free.
All you need to do to get your Level U headphones is to register your first credit card with Samsung Pay – sorry, existing Samsung Pay users, but this offer is for first-timers only. Activate the app, and add that card before February 22, and you qualify for your free Level U headphones.
Unfortunately, there’s no choice of color available (only the black version is offered), but free is free, right? We also don’t know if there might be an even better first-time Samsung Pay promo coming another couple months down the road, but this one doesn’t look half bad, so if you’re considering giving mobile payments a spin, have one of last year’s Samsung flagships, and could stand to own a new pair of headphones, this deal might be just what you need.
