    Submitted for the promotion for my Note 7 this morning and then my sons a couple hours later. Both are now approved and awaiting shipment. The first one was approved within two hours, the second took almost 10 hours. I'm surprised they were approved since one piece of information that was said to be needed on the receipts isn't there.

    Is Black Friday a good day for Smartphone Deals ?
    Yes, very much so. Not sure about actual "promo" items during this time (like how folks are applying for 256 GB microSD cards or the Gear VR 2), unless there is a phone being released around then. You may be able to pick up a new phone then, N7 or otherwise, with some sort of discount. I'm thinking Samsung will likely have some promo going on, though, since they likely want to boost their sales after the recall.

    If you're comfortable purchasing things online, such as through Amazon, keep your eyes open after Halloween and through Black Friday, and even into December. I imagine folks on these forums will also be posting about deals as they pop up in the near future.

    Has anyone actually received anything over the last week or two? Mine has been showing en route for awhile but no tracking info or any signs of actual movement.

    Typical with these is it can take some time to see any action change. The companies Samsung use can be very slow and they do not work on the basis of first in first out. In previous promotions people that submitted claims early were almost last to receive gift.

    Just be patient. It will arrive some day.

    You guys have to give it some time. I submitted 2 promos at the same time for 2 different phones last time. The SD card was shipped within about a week. The Gear Fit2 however was stuck on 'pending until it was shipped about a month later. Remember, the terms is 12 weeks. So don't expect an overnight delivery.

    This is true and understood. However usually at least one or two people on this forum will at least have some type of movement. Where as, this time, none of us do.... Just seems a little odd

    Are most of you folks receiving any kind of confirmation email from Samsung? With the initial promo, a "Your submission has been approved" email came through not too long the website was saying "approved".

    Yeah lets just hope Samsung doesn't all of a sudden reject our N7 submissions for any random reason. Keeping my fingers crossed till i actually receive my SD card. The items are probably on mass backorder from the number of promo submissions is my guess.

    I didn't receive an Approved notification for my 2nd Note 7 for the 256GB card but I did for my loaner S7 on the VR.

    The promo department may send you an email when they're about to ship the item, followed by another email with a tracking number. That's what happened to my Gear Fit2. Took a month for them to send the email then 2 days after received another one with the tracking number. Like what I said 12 weeks. May take a week or they may send it on the last day of the 12-week period.

    I've done these promotions in the past so this is not my first rodeo... This is why I'm saying it's kinda odd that, not at least one person on tje forum has seen movement..

    Not odd when a company who is losing billions is holding off on sending free gifts......you will eventually get your gift even if you have to wait 3 months....thank samsung again for getting you a replacement in such a short amount of time

    So most of the people here! There could be a lot of factors involved why they haven't send out any emails yet. First, it's like less than a week? 2nd, they maybe pulling human resources to work on more important stuff that matters the most , and that is the recall and replacements of Note 7s, 3rd, they may not have the products on hand and awaiting shipments, 4th, they may just taking their time taking frequent coffee breaks so just to **** people off!

    Samsung uses a fulfillment company (Prize Logic, etc.) to handle these promotions so what your saying doesn't make sense. Even with the botched Gear S2 promo, one or two people on this forum received movement in a week or less while the rest of us waited months....
    Just odd that there's zero movement with every single person on this forum, who doubled and triple dipped with this promo

    I don't see anything wrong with it. Sometimes they take longer than usual.
