Sprint and T-Mobile will reportedly give a free Gear Fit 2 with the Galaxy Note 7

One of the ways Samsung drove pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge earlier this year was by offering a free Gear VR headset to any and all customers who placed a pre-order. The result of that promotion speaks for itself. So far it hasn’t been said if this promotion will return for the Galaxy Note 7 but a new report suggests that at least two major US carriers are going to offer a great freebie on each purchase of the company’s upcoming flagship handset.

According to the report, Samsung is working with T-Mobile and Sprint to give away the Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker for free with every pre-order of the Galaxy Note 7 – that’s a $179.99 value. In Sprint’s case customers will have the option to choose between the Gear Fit 2 and a 256GB memory card. The report speculates that it’s likely for Verizon and AT&T to offer a similar promotion to customers who pre-order the Galaxy Note 7, it’s also expected to be offered by Best Buy as well. Samsung is going to officially unveil the Galaxy Note 7 tomorrow so we’ll find out the details about pricing and availability as well as any promotions in the very near future. An allegedly leaked internal memo from Verizon claims that pre-orders will open on August 3 and that the Galaxy Note 7 will be released in the US on August 19.
