    I have played it a few times since I don't really have a ton of points to cash in for an item. You can play the random "spin the wheel and win" type game. I just played for the $1000 to Samsung.com and it said I won. I am wondering it this is a legit gift card/code or what?

    Yeah, I thought it was a scam, I played the "spend 10 pts and you could win 200", I never won 200 but I always either lost or won 10 pts. I looked at the one for the $1000 and thought to myself, "I wonder if anyone has ever won this one?" Figured I'd spin 5 times for grins and giggles and won on the first spin.

    I played "spin and win" for the first time the other day and I won my choice of The Samsung s9 or s9+! I received an email from Samsung within 15 minutes of my win! I've sent in the necessary paperwork and now it's just a waiting game! They said it could take 8-10 weeks after they've received my paperwork and notified me back..

    That only ends the program of earning points via Bixby.

    The points earned via Samsung Pay remains.

    UPDATE!!!!!

    So, as you all know I won an e-gift code to Samsung.com back in May of this year. Since then I have been looking at a fw things that I wanted to get with the code(either of the Notebook 9 Pro's or the 12 inch 2 in 1 tablet for Verizon).

    There are 6 Galaxy book 2 in 1 models online (two 10 inch models and four 12 inch models), only 1 can be purchased directly, all others have to go through another retailer.
    Galaxy Book 12”, 2-in-1 PC, Silver - SM-W727VZKBVZW

    There are 18 Notebook 9 models online (four 13 inch models and fourteen 15 inch models), only 8 (one 13 inch model and fourteen 15 inch models) can be purchased directly, all others have to go through another retailer.
    Notebook 9 Pro 13” (128GB SSD) - NP940X3M-K03US
    Notebook 9 Pro 13” (256GB SSD) - NP940X3M-K01US

    There are 3 Notebook 7 Spin models online (one 13 inch model and two 15 inch models), only 1 can be purchased directly, all others have to go through another retailer.
    Notebook 7 spin 15.6" (12GB RAM) - NP740U5M-X01US


    Anybody notice a pattern? It has been this way since May 2018. I called Samsung on 3-4 different numbers and was pretty much told by everyone, sorry to hear this, but you can only use the gift code at Samsung.com. I let them know I know tis, I don't want to try and spend it anywhere else, I WANT to spend it at Samsung.com but the items can't be bought directly from Samsung, they have a link redirecting you to another retailer to buy from. They then told me that maybe it is just out of stock at the warehouse and to check back frequently. I explain I have been, since May and nothing ever changes. This has been one fantastic nightmare...

    I have been a Samsung fan since the Note 3, have had several notes since then. My wife had the Galaxy Fireball A.K.A. Note 7, LOVED IT, and was crushed when she had to send it back. Even after that she got a Note 8. We have other Samsung products in our home as well as other family members. This ordeal has kinda soured me on Samsung and just not sure what to do about it.

    Sent Samsung an email via their website explaining the whole deal and just waiting to hear back from them. I ended the email with the following;

    I really appreciate the opportunity to win such a great prize. I just wonder how great it is if I am unable to spend it due to a severely limited number of items available at the only place I can use it. I would appreciate any help in getting this resolved. Thank you for your time.

    I'll let you know what they say.....

    I love how he says "If only I had the option to work on this, I would have surely assisted you; however, the support channel that you have contacted is dedicated to handle technical issues with Samsung devices." WTF?????? He then refers me to a number, the number that I started this whole process with!!!!!!!!

    I have no idea what to do with this useless information. Should I call the number I called yesterday based on him telling me to call? No, I think I'll try something else, what I have no idea.

    Yeah, I think they are intentionally making it hard so they don't have to pony up the items picked. I have until the end if the year to use it so I'll keep at it.

    Just thinking of all the Samsung phones I've purchased over the years. Samsung would run a promotion for half off a S-View case. They'd send you a confirmation discount code. You'd attempt to order it and it would be unavailable. Of course availability always happened a week after the confirmation discount code expired.

    Of course they have been okay for things like the free 256GB SD card <I have 3> and the Gear VR < I have 4> so it kinda evens out.
