Nice!

I submitted my April 24 receipt only because my S8+ was some reason changed to May 15 on Samsung's page. Pending.

My S8 was approved but I had to return & purchase, bought it April 29.

The system changed it on its own? You are very lucky, I would prefer the speaker more than the gear VR.

Have a question for those who pre-ordered and got the gear VR. Just got an email for oculus content redemption code. Since I don't have my my gear VR anymore, is the code tied with your samsung account, or I can just give it away?

I got the Gear VR with my S8+, pre-ordered.

The system just changed on it's own. If this goes through since the Note 5 trial Samsung has awarded me greatly. It vexes me how much Apple shows no appreciation for their fans...sorry meant cu$tomer$.

Note 5 trial. $100 Google Play Store
Note 7 fiasco. $200 for my trade-in that didn't work.
S8+. Free Gear VR and possibly free Level Speaker.
S8. Free Level Speaker on the way.

I would've got more when the S7 came out last year but I was forced to return it along with the freebies. No replacement available.

Does anyone else notice their phone using British English in apps like Maps and Google Play despite your phone being set to English Canada? Words like personalization spelled with an S, and words like Motorways within Google Maps?

Update: Just checked my friends S7 and same issue. Looks like Samsung has messed up English Canada.

My S8 took 5 days for it to get approved but it was bought in May. Returned and repurchased.

My S8+ bought on April 24 is still pending after 6 days. Like I said for whatever reason the DOP changed on my Samsung account.

I took a photo of the sales receipt, with the camera, and uploaded the photo. It had information on the device, such as serial and IMEI number. It took two weeks to get approved. The e-mail said I'll receive another e-mail in 72 hours, and that it may take 6 to 8 weeks for the device to arrive.

Haha. If you bored. You should take the one you least like and make the back cover transparent. There's a YouTube video on how to. It looks pretty sweet

Rogers site is showing S8+ for $200 and S8 $100. But when you add them to cart they turn to $50 for the S8+ and $0 for the S8.

Got quoted the same price on live chat and over the phone. But they would not lower it in the store.
