Get a free Samsung Galaxy S6 with the purchase of select 4K TVs (US only)
Whether you are looking for a new TV, a new smartphone or both, Samsung’s latest offer is not one to ignore. The Korean manufacturer is now offering a 32 GB Samsung Galaxy S6 for free with the purchase of select 4K SUHD television (18+ age, US only).
We have seen the Samsung Galaxy S6 being discounted as low as $500 on eBay, but Samsung’s new bundle offer is by far the best deal on the flagship phone so far. The only downside is you have to be willing to buy a TV to get the phone, and the list of applicable 4K TVs shows no affordable options. Regardless, those who were already looking to get a high-end television will see a great opportunity in this.
All you have to do is purchase one of the SUHD TVs listed in the offer’s page. These include the JS9500, JS9100, JS9000, JS8500, JS850D and JS8600. You can enter your submission after having purchased the TV. All you will need to have in hand will be a scanned copy of your receipt and the TV serial number. The offer must be redeemed by September 1, 2015 at 11:59:59 PM ET, so you have plenty of time.
There’s no doubt some of you would prefer getting the luxurious Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. There is also an option for you – you can pay $400 to get some them curved edges everyone loves so much. That is still a good discount over the original price, which costs almost $800. You will be able to make your choice of device and carrier during the submission process – for now let’s worry about these TVs.
What is SUHD?
We know many of you are wondering this – SUHD is not really a known term. The truth is this is not really an industry standard like UHD, otherwise referred to as 4K definition (4096x2160p). SUHD is Samsung’s marketing strategy for categorizing their own high-end televisions.
The new naming scheme relates to Samsung’s traditional practices. Inprevious flagship, “game-changing” products, names usually include the letter “S”. One obvious example would be the Galaxy S smartphone series.
SUHD TVs are a bit different than Samsung’s other panels, though. These specific units are characterized by their better color, brighter picture, unique designs and Tizen-based operating systems. Otherwise, they are pretty much just Samsung’s best TVs for 2015, and moving forward.
Which TVs can I buy to get a free phone?
Now that you know all the details, it’s time to make a decision. That is, if you are still willing to fork out the cash for a new Samsung high-end SUHD TV. Here are the options:
- JS9500 – $4,497.99 from Amazon
- JS9100 – $8,997.99 from Amazon
- JS9000 – $3,497.99 from Amazon
- JS8500 – $1,497.99 from Amazon
- JS8600 – $7,997.99 from Amazon
As you can see, none of these will be cheap. The most affordable one comes with a $1,497.99 price point. The TV is worth it, as are all the others, but we will continue to stress that you shouldn’t go out and buy a new TV set just to get a free Samsung Galaxy S6. This deal is only worth it for those who were already considering buying a high-end television.
