Samsung India offering Rs 4,000 in-store credit with every Galaxy S20 pre-order
Samsung, much like almost every other OEM out there, throws in some bonuses that incentivize users to pre-order. In some regions, the pre-orders can be quite attractive, like in Samsung's case, where it threw in a free pair of Galaxy Buds+ with every Galaxy S20. The Indian market, on the other hand, has always gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to pre-order bonuses. Samsung India is now attempting to rectify that situation.
Everyone who pre-ordered a Galaxy S20 series phone in India is now eligible for Rs 4,000($53) store credit. Only devices that were pre-purchased and activated between May 4th and May 20th are eligible for the offer, though. The store credit can be used to make purchases on the official Samsung Store.
Some of the other pre-order bonuses include an additional Rs 5,000 ($66) for the exchange price for an eligible smartphone, a four-month subscription to YouTube Premium, double data benefits on Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone plans, and one year of Samsung Cares+ for a reduced price of Rs 2,000($26). Additionally, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra owners can snag a pair of Galaxy Buds+ for Rs 1,999($26), while Galaxy S20 users will have to dish out Rs 2,999($40.)You can go to Samsung India's official website to find out more.
While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to Samsung's disappointing Galaxy S20 sales, their prohibitive prices also have a part to play. The laundry list of ongoing issues with Exynos-powered Galaxy S20 phones and the fact that there is only one variant(128GB storage, 8GB RAM) of each phone up for purchase doesn't help Samsung's case either.
