Pre-sales of the TELUS Samsung Galaxy S4 seem to be going well. According to this email sent to TELUS customers who pre-ordered the GS4 the device is “so popular” that they’ve had to offer some a $50 credit to wait a couple week before receiving it. This is a similar position to last year when the Galaxy SIII was released.
TELUS also notes that “there’s a very limited quantity available across Canada and internationally” so on launch day – which is officially in-stores on May 3rd – there might be sparse stock. Here’s the email:
Thanks for pre-ordering the GALAXY S4 with TELUS. This device has been so popular that there’s a very limited quantity available across Canada and internationally. To help manage our restricted supply, we’re offering select pre-order customers a $50 bill credit if you’re willing to wait up to two weeks to receive your GALAXY S4.
What this means for you
If you decide to take this offer, we’ll add a $50 credit to your account after you receive your device. We will ship your GALAXY S4 by May 10th instead of Saturday, April 27th. If you choose not to take this offer, your GALAXY S4 will be shipped on Friday April 26.
Hurry now, limited time offer: You must accept this offer by 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday April 23, 2013.”
The TELUS GS4 is priced at $199 on a 3-year and $700 outright.
