Samsung has launched yet another promotional offer hoping to help the adoption of its mobile payments service. This one is aimed at fresh owners of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge duo, handsets which only became available today (though pre-orders have been shipped three days ago).
It's simple, really. Set up Samsung Pay on your S7 or S7 edge, make an in-store payment using the service, and you'll receive a free $30 gift card. If you use Bank of America debit cards or private label cards to complete that first transaction though, you won't be eligible for the gift card.
As for the gift cards themselves, you can choose one from the following merchants: Best Buy, eBay, Whole Foods, Nike, or Regal Cinema. After you've made the aforementioned qualifying transaction using Samsung Pay, you'll see a pop-up informing you about the gift card offer, which is when you choose one of these merchants.
The pretty obvious caveat is that the promo is US-only. Also, it's only going to be valid until March 31.
I hope Samsung pay is more refined on the Galaxy S7 / S7 edge this time around cause on the Galaxy S6 variants and Note 5 the software wasn't working to well.
Please, for the love of god, can someone tell me when Samsung Pay is coming to Canada??? Am I going to die of old age before it arrives!! :S
