Buy a Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus and get a free Samsung Chromebook
Major smartphone makers and retailers frequently run promotional deals to bump smartphone sales and move stock. Huawei, for example, has been aggressively slashing the price of its Mate 10 Pro smartphone over the past few months to undercut the iPhone and Galaxy S9 series by several hundred Dollars. In response, Samsung is now offering a free Chromebook when users purchase a new unlocked Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus through the official Samsung online store.
The deal lasts until August 13 and it applies to all SKUs of the Galaxy S9 from the $720 64 GB Galaxy S9 up to the $960 256 GB Galaxy S9 Plus. The exact Chromebook in question is the entry-level 11.6-inch Chromebook 3 with 2 GB of RAM, 768p display, and a Celeron CPU. Users who may want a higher-end model will have the option to receive $200 off the retail price instead.
To sweeten the deal even further, Samsung is also throwing in a free 256 GB MicroSD card for purchases made before August 1.
The promotion is notable because it is not tied to any reseller or wireless providers. Most smartphone deals in the United States require activation, new lines, new contracts, rebates, or other undesirable commitments.
