    You might have heard by now that Apple has sent invites for an event on September 9 where it's most likely going to unveil the next generation iPhone, the device that will prove to be tough competition for Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+. Samsung is making a preemptive strike of sorts by further sweetening the deal for its “Test Drive” customers, in case you're unaware Samsung recently launched the Test Drive promotion for iPhone users in the US allowing them to take the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge+ out for a spin at no charge. This promotion was well received and Samsung soon ran out of phones to ship.

    Those who take part in this promotion and decide to purchase the Samsung device after their 30 days are up they will now receive $100 in Google Play credit which can be put towards the purchase of apps, games, books and other media content from the Play Store. Samsung will also provide them with another $100 if they trade-in the iPhone with their carrier or a retailer. Customers who are in the program need to visit Samsung's promotions page when they've decided to purchase the device, they will need to enter the email they used to sign up for this program, answer a couple of survey questions and then fill in purchase details accompanied by a photo of the receipt as proof of purchase. Samsung will then email them a code for $100 Google Play credit, those who trade-in their iPhone will receive a $100 cheque from Samsung in the mail as well. That's a $200 value combined, what new iPhones?
