The amount of product Samsung planned to sell this last year and through this next fiscal quarter obviously dropped substantially after discontinuing the Galaxy Note 7. Now, Samsung seems to be doing all it can to keep interest in the Galaxy brand as high as possible before the presumed late March or early April announcement of the Galaxy S8.
From now until February 14, you’ll have the opportunity to get a free 256GB microSD card with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. If you’ve already bought one during the eligible time frame, you can redeem your gift (and even keep track of its status) over on Samsung’s February Memory redemption page.
Buyers who purchased their phone from a carrier or retail outlet can redeem the microSD card as well. You’ll just need to head over to the redemption page, register an account, and provide the necessary documents to get the process rolling. Those who purchased through a carrier or retailer have until February 21 to do this. It’s well worth going through all the hassle, too. This isn’t any cheap, standard microSD card. The card you’re getting is Samsung’s own EVO+ microSD card, which retails for almost $250.
Samsung expects to hand out around 75,000 microSD card, which is a nice investment when you consider it means around another 75,000 in device sales.
