    Was approved almost instantly for the Samsung $150 promotion, but when i received the email to check my status it says delivered in 6-8 weeks. That's pretty ridiculous if that's the case. Those who pre-ordered with Samsung got instant credit. Was hoping to order some goods, but apparently carrier pre-orders are getting screwed unless I'm missing something...6-8 weeks for the Samsung promotion?!-screenshot_20190822-014928_shop-20samsung.jpeg

    It always says 6-8 weeks. It'll most likely be sooner. I think every time I've pre-ordered since the N7, it's only really been a couple weeks at most. It definitely was never 6-8 weeks though.

    That's normal for every rebate program for years and years. This isn't just a Samsung thing.

    Glad I opted for the $200 in Samsung credit instead.

    I know it's normal for other freebies. I've received many over the years and had to wait for them. But I thought that since this is essentially an email with a code, not something physical like headphones, Gear VR, etc... It would be instant. Guess I never received a code before and didn't think we'd have to wait since essentially those who pre-ordered on Samsung got the chance to use it right away.

    You ordered through Samsung then. You got the extra $50. You got the choice to opt to use it later. Those who did not got an email stating our "voucher" would arrive in 6-8 weeks.

    To be clear, I'm not referring to the products I ordered with the $150. I'm talking about the voucher or code to actually order them. I think it's more than reasonable to wait for free stuff, but why must we wait with an email with a code to get the free stuff? That should be instant. That's what I was saying.

    That definitely sucks.
    6-8 weeks just for the voucher and another 6-8 weeks for Samsung to ship you stuff after you order.

    Under promise, over-perform. I am certain that it won't take 6-8 weeks.

    Doesn't matter where you pre ordered, all orders are eligible for the pre order gift just like every Samsung launch. Go to shop Samsung app and you should be able to claim the pre order gift from there.

    This protects them from giving it and then customers returning the phone within a week. So we will probably receive the rebate in about 2-3 weeks (outside the return period for most retailers).

    I don't really see how you're being "screwed" unless you're not getting a free gift at all.

    Free being the operative word. Could have been nothing. Like what people who didn't pre-order will be getting..

    The phone it's self is enough to be thankful for. This thing is a BEAST!!!

    Okay, maybe "getting screwed" was a poor choice of words. Made this post in the heat of the moment. But I do feel it's a bit misleading. I guess there was fine print that I missed. I've patiently waited for all free incentives on all physical objects from Samsung over the years. These incentives have also been a contributing factor on whether I upgraded or not in the past so it's a win win for Samsungs bottom line. Knowing that those who pre ordered directly with Samsung were able to instantly use that credit led me to believe that once we confirmed our pre order we would receive the coupon code by email right away. I know lots of people who have gotten free stuff from Samsung and returned their phones once the incentive was approved so I don't think it's that. Samsung has no way of tracking that down, nor do I think they care to bother. I was just frustrated because I was looking forward to ordering stuff that others have already ordered. But I guess if I want it right away, in the future I'll just buy it from the source.

    They have to make sure you don't return the phone is my guess.
