If you just bought a Galaxy S5, you’re probably playing with it to discover the new features added to the device this year. If you can pry your finger away from the heart rate monitor for a moment, remember to take a look at the various gifts Samsung has bestowed upon you with the purchase.

On the third home screen, you’ll find a widget called Galaxy Gifts. Tap on that and log in to your Samsung Account (or reluctantly create one if this is your first Samsung device — we know, it sucks, but it’s a necessary evil) and you’ll see all the freebies Samsung has worked to offer its Canadian customers.

Not all of them are great, but some are: three months of Evernote Premium; $15 in-game credits for Cut the Rope 2; 12 months of Bloomberg Businessweek+ access; six months of EasilyDo Pro access; 50GB of Box access for six months.

Let us know which ones you’re excited for!

    none ahah!

  • Luke

    None, those are garbage incentives. You’d be better off wiping the device and starting from scratch with CyanogenMod.

    i don’t get how you get the free services.l still see that you need to pay for them.

    • David Strausser

      They are free to use. You have to pay for them after the free period to continue use, but for example LinkedIn is free for 3 months. That’s worth about $75. Dropbox is free for 2 years.

    Eh.. ah… ugh.. none of the above. 50 gb of Box for three years would be more exciting. 6 months? A cruel tease.

    I have an S3 and refuse to create a sammy account.

  • David Strausser

    I have a question. How do you redeem the LinkedIn Premium with the Galaxy S5? We haven’t been able too.
