Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+

Deal: Samsung is offering a free wireless charger for every Galaxy Note 8, S8 or S8+ purchase

Samsung Mobile Kenya is running a cool offer where anyone who buys a Galaxy Note 8, S8 or S8+ will get a free wireless charger.

In April 2017, Samsung opened pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ here in Kenya. At the time, the company said that the first 2000 customers to pre-order the phone will get a free Samsung Level Box Slim. When the Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders opened, the story was the same, but this time buyers of this beast were awarded a free 5100mAh fast charging powerbank.

On the surface of it, these freebies are no more, but the steep recommended retail prices (RRP) of the trio are still in place. At launch, the Galaxy S8 was valued at Sh 85,000 while the S8+ at Sh 95,000. To grab the Galaxy Note 8, you needed a cool Sh 105,000 (now Sh 100,000 without the powerbank, according to a Samsung rep). While the prices of the trio remain unchanged when purchased via official Samsung shops across the country, the company wants to make the deal a little bit more interesting.

Apparently, for any Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ purchase, buyers will be offered a free wireless charger. For the uninitiated, all Samsung flagship phones, including the older Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, are compatible with wireless charging. However, you need a separate wireless charging pad in order to take advantage of this feature – and Samsung is giving it to you for free as long as you shell out the needed amount to pay for any of the three phones.

It’s strange that Samsung is still selling the Galaxy S8 and S8+ at the same price tags they came in with, especially since we only have a few weeks before the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are unveiled. Still, looking at the local timeline, we should start seeing the S9 pair somewhere in Q2 or Q3 for that matter. Perhaps it’s when the phones will start seeing discounts, but if you want a discounted S8, S8+ or even Note 8, you might want to look at the many third-party retailers in the country, but be careful with warranty and general support issues.
