Giving away free TVs with each purchase is one way to keep Galaxy S7 sales up

Samsung shipped more than 81 million smartphones in the most recent quarter, according to market research firm Gartner. The company’s successful flagship smartphone launch was obviously a big driver for Samsung in the first quarter as it enjoyed its fastest profit growth in three years. Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are clearly the sleekest and most powerful smartphones the company has ever launched, but they also got a helping hand from some serious advertising and marketing campaigns. On top of that, sales were no doubt bolstered by the fact that carriers were offering buy-one-get-one campaigns before the new flagship phones even launched.

If you missed out on a BOGO deal, don’t feel too bad because another nice incentive just popped up.

HUGE LEAK: This is our first look at a real iPhone 7

Between now and the end of the day on June 4th, anyone who purchases a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge at Best Buy for use on Verizon Wireless, AT&T or Sprint will also get a 32-inch Samsung Smart LED TV for free at Best Buy. And if 32 inches is too small, buyers can also opt to upgrade to a 48-inch Smart TV for $250. The 32-inch Samsung TV in question is currently being sold for just over $200 on Amazon, and the 48-inch model costs $448.

The deal is available to anyone who purchases a new Galaxy S7 or S7 edge on a 2-year contract with Verizon, AT&T or Sprint, or opts for one of the carriers’ newer lease plans. It isn’t quite as good a bargain as the BOGO offers that had been available, but it certainly sweetens the pot. Plus, if you’re planning to purchase one anyway, now you know you should do it at Best Buy rather than at a carrier store.

Here’s the link to Best Buy’s deal page.
