I had to call support. Apparently the problem was using your phone had limitations, you need to enable Request Desktop Site. Make sure you fill out everything in your profile. Go back to My Offers and you should see the promotion to sign up and that's where you need to upload the receipt.
thanks. i see what i did wrong. I didnt fully updated my Profile

Well I wasted $20, sort of.

My fido/Rogers S8 & S8+ works vice versa. I had to borrow my boy's Bell sim card to unlock it.

20 bucks for the code? You bought it from the carrier and not directly from Samsung?

You got approved for the bluetooth speaker even though you purchased the phone back in Apr?

If you don't care for the Buid and Design then you don't need to spend this much for it.

Even if you care for Performance and Specs I highly doubt you can tell the difference say if you go with the S7. I mean I bought last year's moto Z. Only sold it because I'm an addict.

Having said that, Samsung did an amazing job and except for the Finger Print Scanner I love it that I bought both the S8 & S8+. I couldn't decide between the Color & Size. LOL

I was in the same situation as you. My note 3 died completely and for a week i was hesitant to spend $1250. But couldn't wait any longer so I got the s8+ in grey. What a difference Samsung flagships are now. The software is so much better. So much faster and with less crap on board. I actually don't mind the finger sensor on the back. It's grown on me. Make sure you get the PLUS version lol

What's the reason your hesitant?
Plus there's a Promotion for the s8. Comes with a slim wireless speaker. Check their website for details

Oh i forgot to mention. There's also a 15 day buyers remorse. So go ahead and try it out

I imagine the fingerprint scanner would be quicker, since you don't have to try to hold the phone up to your face. Also, I recall reading somewhere that some folks with glasses had issues with the iris scanner as well.

People think you have to hold the phone up like your taking a selfie to unlock with iris. Well you don't. U can have the phone chest high and stare into the sensor
