    Although I'm loving my note 9 and glad that I got it before release. I can't help but feel duped with the new promotion Samsung has. Was being nosy on their site and see that they're now giving away the duo with a case for free(paid 100 for). Also for 100 bucks you could the icon x included as well. Already have the icons but for the price I paid for the duo it would be a no brainer to take advantage of these gifts. Really wish Samsung would've done these gifts for the folks pre-ordered instead of headphones or game credits New note 9 gifts-screenshot_20180824-040143_chrome.jpg

    They always come out with better promo deals after a bit of time vs dawn of preordering.

    That's a real downer. I'm not sure I understand their reasoning.
    I didn't get anything with my Note 9 (due today) but I get the wireless charger for free from Amazon with the Galaxy watch (due 7th September)

    That is annoying!
    I have emailed Samsung UK to ask why there are no pre-order gifts in the UK when there are in a lot of other places, just got the usual 'There are no promotional gifts in the UK sorry'
    Yeah I can see that!

    Yeah that's understandable but we're talking about a new and better promotion on release day. Never seen them do this.

    Plus you pretty much get any of their cases for free. I want the led wallet case so that's a really good value for me. I didn't pre-order based on the gifts, but would've held out knowing this one would be available on release day.New note 9 gifts-screenshot_20180824-041522_shop-20samsung.jpg

    Release day they may be trying to really drive those sales up, my guess.

    Yeah I kinda thought that too plus I'm sure it's only through Samsung. Probably trying to compensate for back orders. Don't like whining but would've really loved those gifts lol.

    Lol yea. And those deals will get better with black Friday, etc. Retailer deals competing, all that sort of thing. I'm curious how the sales are doing worldwide compared to the N8 at this point in preorder-release day

    Time will tell. Seems that most upgraders are either note 8 or s7 users, but then again my info is just limited to this forum lol.

    No thanks. I'll take the headphones that are quality and worth alot more than a charger and a case. Never feel duped when someone is giving you stuff for free.

    Have you received your headphones yet? I use my icons day to day as they're discreet and allow me to use one ear if need be. Seeing that I actually bought the duo charger it would've been more suitable for me to receive for free. Do agree though can't complain too much about something I didn't pay for.

    I got a message saying they will ship next week. I have last year's model but have seen reviews on these and they are supposed to be awesome.

    To clarify, this is only for orders through Samsung, correct? I don't see any new promotions for purchasing through the carriers.

    You can always return your note 9 and reorder to get the charging duo.

    I just cancelled my preorder and placed a new order for this offer. I wasn’t too keen on the AKG headphones as I use my Bose QC earbuds and the QC35II cans. I had purchased an S-View case with the AKG pre-order for $59, but after seeing the new offer which included the Duo charger and a free case of my choice, I can wait a little longer on the backorder if I have to! I can at least give my wallet a break on the savings

    You can also just return the Note 9 (you have 15 days) and order another one to get his offer. I was checking this out too but I noticed that they are only giving $150 for a Pixel 2XL and I got a credit of $450 for mine. I'll take the deal I got since I am trading in my Pixel.

    It sounds good, but for those that trade-in they would not get the same $$ offer, you now only get $300 for a s9/s9+ instead of $450 same with other devices the trade-in value would be much less. So you can buy the wireless duo charger and still have a better deal.

    I still thing the pre-order deals were better.

    I got $500 for a Note 5, the headphones are good headphones, and the V-bucks and Fortnite skin are something my kid was dying to have

    The headphones are pretty darn good. I have no complaints with this gift. Much better than the Gear 360 I chose last year. I would've ordered the phone even if they weren't offering any gifts.

    I too noticed that the big difference is in the trade in values. My old GS7 edge would only fetch $100 now instead of $300. That being said, I already have my Bose noise canceling headphones and I have last year's AKG headphones (non noise canceling) gift.

    Why not just sell the headphones if you don't need them? They would probably fetch more than the charger.

    I would like to know this as well! I preordered from Best Buy and the phones are ready for pickup today. If this applies to any purchase of Note 9, I may ask if my phone is in stock at the store (128G purple) and cancel my preorder if it is. Wireless charger is much more useful to me than headphones.

    I still think the AKG headphones are a better deal... But the 99 bucks for the Icon X's I would have done.
