Today, and today only, Best Buy is giving out free Gear VR headsets to anyone that buys a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 5. So if you’ve been looking to upgrade to either the Galaxy Note 5 or the Galaxy S6, this might be a great time to do so. As the Gear VR normally goes for about $99, and getting it for free is a pretty big deal. This also includes the Edge variants of the Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge+.
At Best Buy, you do have your choice of Verizon, Sprint or AT&T. Unfortunately still no T-Mobile support. You do also have the choice of how you are going to pay for the device. Whether that be on a payment plan or outright. And surprisingly enough, some stores are still doing contracts – even though all four carriers have dropped contracts and going for installment plans now. All four of these smartphones are some of the best that 2015 had to offer, and even today are some of the best smartphones available. With virtual reality really beginning to pick up, getting the Gear VR headset for free is a pretty big deal.
The Gear VR is produced by Samsung with its partnership in Oculus. So there are plenty of great games and features included in the Gear VR. The new Gear VR supports Samsung’s Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and the Note 5. With the headset putting the phone right in front of your eyes. There are all sorts of great features already available for the Gear VR, including one from LeBron James which takes you inside his world to see what it’s like to lace up and get ready for a NBA game. Pretty great stuff, because not everyone makes it into the NBA, sadly enough.
This is a pretty great deal, especially if you’re excited about virtual reality – which you should be. Buy a phone and you get a VR headset that works specifically with that phone. However, Best Buy is doing this promo today, and today only. So you’ll want to run in and get it while supplies last.
