Verizon kicks off multiple Father’s Day promos, including free 50-inch Smart TV for Galaxy buyers
Verizon is no stranger to one-upping Samsung’s sweet Galaxy S7 deals, offering a gratis Gear S2 smartwatch back in the day with the flagship Android phone while the OEM could “barely” bundle the handheld with a free Gear VR headset.
Now, the Gear VR freebie is rebooted across all Samsung-sanctioned US retailers selling the S7 and S7 Edge, as well as the S6, S6 Edge, Edge+, and Note 5, and once again, Big Red ups the savings ante. Only the nation’s leading wireless service provider keeps its latest bargain limited to the GS7, S7 Edge, and Note 5.
Buy any one of those from the carrier, and you can choose between the same Gear VR on offer at Samsung.com or a free 32-inch Smart TV, presumably identical to the 720p model Costco and Best Buy recently threw in with S7 orders.
Nothing particularly exciting about that Father’s Day arrangement from Verizon, but here’s where things get interesting. If you purchase two Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, or Note 5 copies on device payment plans and activate at least one new line, you’ll automatically qualify for a considerably pricier gift in the form of a 50-inch Samsung Smart TV.
We couldn’t locate the model number of this giant on VZW’s website, though it’s definitely a 1080p-capable product normally worth upwards of $500. Not too shabby, but you obviously can’t combine this with the Gear VR giveaway. You can however still get up to $650 in switch bonuses with eligible trade-ins, plus a separate $100 bill credit when you move to Verizon from the competition and buy any new phone on device payment.
