    Keep us posted! I've heard that the replacement N7 has also worked on the S7/S7E promotion as well. I'm considering trying that one to get another 256GB card, but if it works for the N7 promotion, I'll get a Gear Fit 2 to go with my S2 Classic.
    Just entered my N7 along with the receipt into the S7/S7Edge promo page. We'll see what it does! Another 256 GB SD card would certainly help quell all the angst around this exchange process.

    I did it with my new N7, using the receipt I have from BB that includes the recall return and new phone exchange, haven't gotten an email but checked their website and it said it was approved.

    So, some people got a free Note 7 with the BOGO promotion from T-Mobile, then got 2 sd cards or watches with the Samsung promotion, then 2 more sd cards or VR headsets for the free loaner edge 7 Samsung promotion and now 2 more sd cards or VR headsets with the new Samsung promotion again?
    Oh, and the $25 credit.

    And T-Mobile won't sell me a new Note 7, cash money at regular price, minus any promotional stuff. Yeah, that's my luck. My money must not be good enough.

    Is it a new purchase or did you have a Note 7 previously? If it's new, I am glad at least one carrier is taking care of exchanges before they will sell to anybody else.

    I'm trying to buy a Note 7 new. My upgrade with T-Mobile didn't happen until after the recall. But now that they have Note 7s in stock, they won't sell them, only do exchanges.

    General sales for the Note7 are not supposed to take place until the 28th of September. The priority for Samsung (and most retail outlets that are complying) is to take care of exchanges of the recalled units, to get them out of the wild and back to Samsung for proper disposal. I would think it's to stay ahead of the second hand market where unassuming second market buyers may eventually be stuck with a potentially volatile device.

    The promo with the Gear Fit 2/256GB card has expired. The promo that people are using now is the one for the S7/S7E (Gear VR/256GB card).
    Apparently, you can qualify for the S7/S7E promo using an N7. I'm waiting until my Gear VR ships from when I used the S7E promo, then I'm putting in for a 256GB card on the S7/S7E promo using my N7.
    I'm with you on this..... Hope my VR ships soon!!!! I want another VR for a friend

    How are you getting this to work. I tried and it tells me my imie does not qualify
    I registered one of my new Notes yesterday. Submission went through. Today, I got my other Note replaced and was unable to submit because incorrect I will. So perhaps Samsung doesn't want to have folks double dipping.

    UPDATE: The imei on the phone was not complete, when l entered the number on the box it took it.

    And my submission from yesterday has been approved and is being packed for shipment!

    I'm regretting choosing the card for my first Note. I already have a Gear S2 and Gear 2 Neo, so I figured why get the Gear Fit 2 over an SD card? If I knew then that I could get a card, VR, and watch...
    Gonna wait a couple more days to see if they do another N7 promo, otherwise I'll get another 256GB card and sell it. Or maybe trade someone here for the Gear Fit 2...
    Can't have too many watches, right?

    Submitted mine a few hours ago. Got the "Thanks! Your offer claim has been received." message at the end of the submission, then the "Thanks For Your Submission!" email. For a while when I entered my email in the "Check Status" info it said no submission found. Now it says, "Your submission is currently under review." I don't remember it saying that the first time, or for my son's S7E. We'll see.
    And now, "Submission approved. Preparing for shipment."

    Very surprised. Very pleased. (Got 2 Gear Fits - 1 for my original N7 & 1 for one of my sons' S7E.)

    It could be temporary that they are approving these...maybe to make people (who have been getting replacements and taking all the hassle behind it) happier....so do this asap if you get a replacement device

    Or there is a giant loophole they didn't foresee. With Verizon, they actually did a full return of my original N7 and then charged me that same amount for the new one. Two separate transactions, so the second purchase is for all intents and purposes a new purchase rather than an exchange. Either way, good for the consumer.

    I understand frustration exists among those who went through this whole ordeal, but exploiting the promotion is ridiculous.

    I tried it and my information was successfully entered.

    Then a minute later I got the pending approval email. Then I clicked on link to check status. I was happy to see it was already approved, and had a FedEx tracking number. I clicked on the tracking number and it showed it was already delivered.

    I then realized it was for my original gift, the gear fit I got using the same email.

    I hope I'll be able to see an updated status on the VR.

    ****edit ***

    Nevermind, I had to scroll to see latest submission. It's pending.

    No more ridiculous than exploiting tax loopholes..... it's legal and it is what it is
