After offering $50 in bill credit to select Galaxy S4 buyers that would agree to have their pre-ordered handset shipped latter than April 27, Telus is now doubling down on that offer.
Like before, waiting means agreeing to have your Galaxy S4 shipped by May 10 instead of Saturday, April 27.
Telus has sent another email notification to some buyers telling them that now they can get a $100 credit in order to wait up to two weeks to receive their new Galaxy S4. The carrier is again mentioning its need to “manage [its] restricted [Galaxy S4] supply,” suggesting that it may not have enough units to go around during its in-store launch of the handset.
Those Telus subscribers that have already agreed to the initial $50 offer for a delayed Telus Galaxy S4 shipping will automatically receive $100 bill credit instead, and they won’t have to do anything else to receive the extra bonus.
The Telus Galaxy S4 sells for $199 with a new 3-year commitment, so that $100 credit could further sweeten the deal even if that means waiting an extra two weeks to use Samsung’s new flagship handset.
Telus may not be the only carrier struggling to meet Galaxy S4 demand. In the U.S., Sprint has apparently sold out its first Galaxy S4 pre-order batch, so buyers will have to turn to other carriers or retailers to get an early Galaxy S4 unit.
Obviously, the Galaxy S4 is a very popular handset with the Android crowd, so if you’re curios to find out more details about the handset, check out our Galaxy S4 review (video available above).
