Samsung is usually not shy on offering deals to consumers should they decide to pick up their latest and greatest devices, and this year with the launch of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, they're offering a free Gear VR headset to anyone who pre-ordered the device before it launched today in retail locations or those who purchase either device within the first week of release. For anyone who picks up one of these devices, Samsung is offering up another cool little promotion where they issue a gift card for first-time payments made with Samsung Pay, with multiple options for the business or store where the gift card can be used.
There are a couple of caveats to this promotion, which requires users to make a payment with Samsung Pay between March 11th and March 31st. The payment has to be successful which obviously means it has to go through, and the payment has to be made with a compatible credit or debit card for the offer to be valid and the gift card to be issued to the user. The other limitation is that the gift cards are only available for Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners who buy their device and make the payment between now and the above-listed dates, which means no gift cards for older Samsung devices which support Samsung Pay.
The gift card will be valued at $30, and there doesn't seem to be any restrictions on how much the purchase with Samsung Pay has to be for, so users could potentially buy anything, even items or products which cost a couple of bucks, as one user on Reddit mentions they purchased a soda from a vending machine and ended up with a Gift Card from this promotion. It's worth mentioning that Bank of America debit cards and Synchrony private label credit cards are not eligible to receive the promotional offer. As for what Gift Cards are available to choose from, the list includes $30 gift cards from Best Buy, eBay, Regal Cinemas, Nike and Whole Foods, and once the gift card is selected users will receive it inside of their Samsung Pay wallet soon after.
