A new Samsung Galaxy could get you a year of free Netflix from T-Mobile

Samsung launched two new high-end devices today at an event in New York City – the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Note 5 – and T-Mobile is enticing customers to pick one up through a deal that will offer a free year of Netflix.

In what appears to be an exclusive deal, those who register to receive more information on one of the two new devices from the carrier before Friday, August 21 and follow through with a purchase by September 30 will get a full 12-month subscription to the streaming service free of charge. The phones will officially be available through T-Mobile next Friday, August 21.

The offer appears to be available to both new and existing T-Mobile customers, and requires that Samsung verifies the pre-registration. The fine print suggests that you must, of course, first pass credit approval, pay a deposit, and sign on to a “qualifying service.”

Further in the fine print, it appears the offer is limited to only the first 9,000 legal U.S. residents who apply, including those in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Once you’ve met all of the criteria, including pre-registering and physically buying the device, you need to submit an Offer Claim Form online, and include the qualifying purchase receipt.

The value of the prize about $108 for 12 months of Netflix service at $9 per month for new members for the “2 stream” plan. Once you get your Netflix code, it has to be registered by September 30 or it will expire. And it’s non-transferable, which means existing Netflix subscribers can’t “gift” the code to a friend or family member. (Drats.)

It seems like quite a bit of work, but certainly a worthwhile offer for those who are interested in grabbing one of the new devices.

Classified as a “phablet” (i.e. a cross between a phone and a tablet), the new Galaxy Note has a faster processor than its predecessor, while the S6 edge+ has the same curved design as the model before it, but a much larger screen at 5.7” versus 5.1”. Both are certainly large enough to enjoy some on-the-go binge-watching of your favourite series.
