Before I tell you what a great deal this is, you should know that Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is just around the corner, and it’ll likely come with various perks when you preorder it in early April. Moreover, the Galaxy S7 will be even cheaper in stores once its successor arrives.
That said, it’s not every day that you can get a free 256GB microSD card when you purchase a hot smartphone, so many users will likely want to consider ordering the “old” handset right now.
To receive a free 256GB Samsung Evo+ microSD card, regularly priced at a hefty $249.99, you’ll have to buy either the Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy S7 edge at Samsung.com. You can order either an unlocked or carrier-bound Galaxy S7 version to take advantage of the deal. Samsung is obviously looking to dump as much Galaxy S7 stock as it can before the Galaxy S8 launches, even if that means throwing in a high-capacity microSD card that’s quite expensive.
The deal is valid through February 14th, so you have some time to consider the offer. Worst-case, you buy the phone just to score the free microSD card, and then you resell it sometime after the new model hits store shelves.
The Galaxy S8, meanwhile, should be unveiled at some point in late March and hit stores the following month. The new Galaxy S phone is expected to feature a fresh new design, a larger Super AMOLED display, a more powerful and efficient processor, and an even better camera than the class-leading rear camera on last year’s Galaxy S7.
