Have you seen the new Samsung Galaxy S8 yet? Are you planning on picking one up? If you are, you're in for a little treat. Samsung is giving away free Gear VR's and its controller with the purchase of a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8.
Samsung claims they have sold more than 5 million VR's. Most of that is likely due to this similar promotion last year, which offers the Samsung VR to those who purchased a brand new Samsung Galaxy S7 last year.
The rules are simple. The Samsung S8 must be purchased by April 20th and the free Samsung Gear VR is to be redeemed by May 14th.
If you are interested in getting into VR, then this is your chance. However, you have to hurry as free VR's are limited to only the first 350,000 purchasers. The limit is usually set to a per country basis. Once that 350,000 person limit is reached, no more free VR's will be given.
Retailers like Walmart and Bestbuy will also be offering similar deals with the Gear VR, so you'll have some time to look around.
Are you into VR? Or do you think it's a gimmick? A large portion of the 5 million VR's sold by Samsung are most likely collecting dust, as the 5 million sold does not exactly translate to usage.
