Anybody would be hard pressed to tell you how much a new Samsung Galaxy S7 costs – sure, it has a ‘list’ price, but depending what plan you sign-up with, the ‘tab’ you get or what promotion your carrier is currently running, you could walk away with one for practically nothing. Some carriers in the States are doing a Buy One, Get One (BOGO) free and Telus is offering extra data and a three-month subscription to Netflix, but so far no carrier is simply giving away a new Galaxy S7. Wait for it – now you actually can get a new Galaxy S7 for $0 at Rogers by meeting certain conditions.
There are actually two sets of conditions for getting your free Galaxy S7 – one if you are an existing customer and one set if you are a new customer. Both groups must meet the first two conditions and that is the Galaxy S7 must only be purchased in a Rogers branded retail store and they must agree to a two-year Share Everything+ Plan. Existing customers that are upgrading will receive a credit of $225 on their second or third billing after the purchase. New customers will receive a $125 credit on their second or third bill after their purchase and then receive an additional $100 in-store credit. Both new and existing customers can receive an additional $175 credit if they trade in an old phone – received as a bill credit for existing customers and in-store credit for a new customer. Rogers will still charge a connection fee of $20 per line to activate the service and, of course, early termination fees apply.
To recap how to get a free Galaxy S7 – existing customers will get a $225 bill credit and $175 bill credit by trading in an old phone and new customers get a $125 bill credit and an additional in-store credit of $100 and $175 in-store credit by trading in an old phone. Both must upgrade or purchase their new Galaxy S7 at a Rogers store and sign up for a two-year Share Everything+ Plan. Under either option, the subscriber must put out some money until the credits show up on their bills and if you do not trade-in an old device, then you will obviously not pay $0, but follow all conditions and you can walk out of a Rogers’ store with a ‘free’ Galaxy S7.
