    I'd go with the rebate offer at Verizon since the charger seems to be out of stock pretty much since the first Samsung Pay promo at Samsung's site. Mine is still on backorder haha

    I haven't had time to look at the $50 rebate offer. It doesn't say which wireless chargers at Verizon corporate stores are eligible. I'm almost positive that they don't sell Samsung ones, so I'm no sure how the $50 rebate will work.

    get a free checking account from one of the participating banks? close the acct a month later or something, plus you may get a free toaster or free football phone out of it! I once received a free rifle for opening a new checking account with direct deposit... this was back when I lived in another state. (yes, an actual RIFLE that I used to hunt deers and rabbits)

    Oh, it seems the charger is back in stock at Samsung's page... hmmmm... Time to call Customer Service and see why mine is still showing up as backordered.

    Verizon Corporate stores are not eligible.

    Samsugn's site says: "Receive up to a $50 rebate, on your Wireless Charging Pad purchase only at select Verizon locations"

    Don't know what Verizon locations are..... should that be the Verizon corporate store? what other Verizon locations are there?

    I read corporate stores and online is not valid. Maybe its retailers, though I cant be sure. I just ordered charger instead of reimbursement just to avoid confusion. I would have liked reimbursement and buy fast charger...but oh well.

    Does anyone know how bad these free chargers are? I am assuming they are not fast wireless chargers, but how slow are they? How long does it take to fully charge? Any other issues with these chargers? Is there any issue with sometimes charging with this and sometimes with fast charger that came with the phone.

    It just occurred to me that the free charger will be the slow standard wireless charger,
    not the fast charging wireless charger. But who am I to complain about free stuff?

    If a hot girl lifts up her shirt and gives me a show, I'm not going to complain if she is only
    showing me one boob, right? (at least not until the show is over... then I'll
    complain that I didn't see the other one) Edit: this brought back sad memories for me
    back in my high school days... I was a total dork when I turned down a cute girl's offer
    to touch her boobs.
    We were in my car and I was giving her a ride home. She
    looked at me in disbelief and we barely talked after that incident... 30 years later,
    I'm still kicking myself whenever I remember the incident. We met at the 20-year
    reunion and she was still avoiding me. I need to borrow Doc Brown's time machine
    and go back to 1986 to fix this. I did a lot of dumb things when I was a teen, but
    that was almost a crime against myself.

    Are we eligible if we already activated a card on Verizon a week ago?

    is the Samsung fast charging wireless charger very, very fast? Just wondering if I should even bother.

    Ummm...not that slow. It should charge your phone similarly to a normal 1.5 to 2A charger (not the Fast Charging ones though, obviously).

    Free is free. I will take it to work and use it there. If it grows legs and walks off I won't care too much.

    If it grows legs and walks off, can I buy it from you? I'll pay cash. Thanks!

    The original wireless charger is very slow. I wouldn't say that if I didn't have first hand experience

    I tried one at the store and it charged 'normally'. I'll see what happens when I get mine. I'll only use it at the office though, so wouldn't mind if it charges slowly.

    Anyone get a "claim approval" yet?

    I keep a pouch on the back of my phone, so I don't think I can charge wirelessly, but what the hay?

    I would hope so. But the terms and conditions state the following:

    "To participate: (i) activate the Samsung Pay app (must have a Samsung Account to activate) between 10/28/15 and 11/8/15"

    I assume most of us activated Samsung Pay before today.

    God dammit, I literally just activated Samsung Pay yesterday and I didn't even use it.

    The terms I read on that site said the offer claim just had to be submitted between those dates. I have not gotten a response or approval yet.
