    I'm in the middle of the registration process (I think). I got a webpage during registration to "Buy" but the link I clicked never did anything. So now I'm unsure if the process actually completed and a payment email will come later - or did my registration not complete for this "buyable promo option".

    I would like to collect others experience here to note when (& how) to verify its successful since there are limited quantities and you can't wait forever to get confirmations. I got an initial confirmation on the Gear VR/Oculus freebee - but nothing that confirms the Bundle for $99 during this process (yet).

    They're going to send you a link by email to order the immersive gear experience.

    Good luck with that.

    Did anyone have any luck at all ordering the $99. bundle during registration?

    My rub on this - look at the Check Gift Status page.

    Why not checkoff the offer you qualified for and put in the status - Await your email to complete ordering and payment process.

    Rather than leaving it ambiguous - now you have to worry the form didn't process correctly and bug Customer Service about it. I think Samsung customer support is clearly behind the times in keeping status up-to-date and accurate - Overall

    The page is already live. That's why I posted the results so far on my attempt to register for the Immersive Gear VR bundle for $99.

    Still no email for me from my registration yesterday at 2:15pm. I see on Verizon pre-order thread someone else had same issue that I had - webpage with BUY button did nothing.

    Anxious to hear from other's experiences.

    As soon as my phone shows up today I'll give it a try and report back. This would suck not being able to get the $99. deal.

    That is just the Gear VR with Controller - what about the $99 Gear VR bundle with headphones and SD card?

    Is that what you wanted was just the "free Gear VR"?

    BTW - what "app" are using on the phone to get that info? I don't get that screen on Shop Samsung App.

    To compare with what other's have received so far - here's the email that came back to me when registering for the $99 offer. Notice there is no mention in this email about the $99 bundle or payment.

    Just ordered it (the SD card and headphones) It told me that it was going to be $21 for shipping, but once it went through, the $21 changed to $0

    When during the process did it ask you to pay? Did you receive a separate email (that you could post here as confirmation)?

    I registered using the Samsung shipping app and immediately got an email saying my registration is approved with a link to purchase the add on.

    Thanks even though it's through the Samsung Shopping App that confirms to me that the submission I made didn't process properly thru the Webpage process. Because my email does not have that wording or buy link.

    The original webpage that popped up with the BUY button was the one that was supposed to get the $99 VR Bundle purchased. At the time it wasn't working - some others have found this out as well.

    Looks like the on device Samsung Shop App is the way to go.

    I'm off to Samsung phone hell now to try and reverse what happened to me.

    Please keep us posted on your progress.
    I was going to register from my desktop computer but better use the Samsung Shop app instead.

    When you go to the website to register for the promotion, it will offer to let you use the app.

    Did you purchase your phone from a carrier or Samsung direct?
