AT&T tries to move Samsung Galaxy phones with free Gear S2 deal

Samsung’s next big smartphones are nearly here, as we look forward to seeing the Galaxy S7 family make its debut in just a few more weeks. When those phones finally arrive, we’re sure to see all sorts of new efforts by retailers and carriers alike to move existing Galaxy-series stock, whether in the form of discounts or special bundle offers. Today we’re checking out an early instance of one of the latter, as AT&T encourages shoppers to pick up a new Galaxy smartphone with the promise of a free Gear S2 smartwatch.

For a limited time, customers buying a new Samsung Galaxy phone on AT&T Next will also score a free Gear S2.

Not quite sold on this whole “wearables” thing? You’re still covered, as AT&T is also giving shoppers the chance to redeem their freebie in the form of a Galaxy Tab 4.

Finally, there’s an offer for Apple fans, too, though we’re moving out of “free” territory here: take home a new iPhone, and AT&T will hook you up with an iPad mini 2 for just about $100.

News of these deals arrives alongside a two-for-one smartphone deal for AT&T business customers, but we doubt that’s of much interest to you; hit up the source if you’re curious.
