Samsung is now offering free wireless charging pads to folks who pick up their pay-nearly-anywhere-with-your-smartphone service Samsung Pay. This is part of an ongoing campaign to encourage users to try this payment system, and all you have to do to be eligible is add a credit or debit card to Samsung Pay on your Galaxy smartphone.

The charger Samsung is shipping out to new Pay users is a Qi Wireless Charging Pad. To get yours, just add your card, head over to the promo area of the app, copy the coupon code there, and then go to the Samsung store to purchase the pad. As soon as you enter that coupon code, the price of the wireless charging pad will drop to zero, and within a few days you’ll be the proud owner of the most hassle-free charging method on the market today.

Samsung isn’t announcing this with too much fanfare. A reader tipped us off to this with a screenshot (seen below) so you’ll have to actively seek out this offer after activating Samsung Pay if you want to make the most of it. You don’t have to actually make a payment; adding a credit or debit card is enough to qualify. This offer looks like it will only last to March 10, so if you’re the owner of an eligible device, you might as well jump on it. There’s a free wireless charger in your future.
