If you decided against preordering the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge and therefore missed your chance to snag a free Gear VR, the good news is you still have an opportunity to get Samsung’s virtual reality headset at a decent discount.
According to a Best Buy flyer MobileSyrup was able to obtain, Starting tomorrow anyone who buys and activates the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge at the big box retailer will get a $40 discount on the additional purchase of a Gear VR headset (normally priced $90). Consumers can also get an additional $50 off towards the purchase of either phone when they trade in their existing device, effectively making the Gear VR free.
As with any promotion, there are a couple of specific restrictions in to keep in mind.
The most significant one is that the new S7 you buy needs to be activated with either Bell, Telus or Rogers. Additionally, you’ll need to sign a two year plan. Last but not least, the promotion is only valid at certain stores across the country, and while supplies last.
