Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 smartphone at its Unpacked 5 Episode 1 event held at the end of February in Barcelona, at the debut of the Mobile World Congress 2014. Now it has been confirmed by multiple US carriers that the 5.1-inch flagship will debut on April 11, but some pre-orders may be shipped a few days earlier (AT&T ships pre-orders on April 8, for example).
Verizon Wireless offers a free Samsung Galaxy S5 to those who purchase two handsets, each with a new 2 year contract. The off-contract price of a Galaxy S5 from the Big Red is also attractive, as most other carriers charge $650 USD or $660 USD in this case, while Verizon has the device listed for only $599 USD.
This is the price breakdown for the free Samsung Galaxy S5 deal: the first phone costs $249.99 USD and the second one only $50 USD, each tied to a new 2 year activation. In both cases, the customer receives a $50 USD mail-in rebate debit card, so the actual cost for two Samsung Galaxy S5 flagships is $199.99 USD.
Unfortunately, it seems activation fees up to $35 USD per line also apply and, in case of premature termination, customers can be charged early termination fees of up to $350 USD.
The offer went live last Friday and will be valid until April 17. For more details, please check Verizon Wireless' website or call 877.615.3777.
