Customers who got the Verizon Galaxy S7 might have to wait slightly longer for their free Gear VR or Gear S2

Gear VR - T-Mobile

Did you pre-order the #Verizon #GalaxyS7 or #GalaxyS7edge and still haven’t received the free #GearVR headset? Well, you might not be alone as there appears to be a slight delay in the shipments of the Gear VR and/or Gear S2 headsets for customers who pre-ordered the aforementioned smartphones via Big Red.

If you recall, Verizon’s promotion involved offering customers a free unit of the Samsung Gear VR or the Gear S2 when they pre-order the smartphones before the 18th of March.

The carrier has now clarified that there is a delay in the shipments of the freebies due to heavy demand. If you’re not particularly patient to wait for your freebie to arrive, you can opt to get a $100 Samsung.com coupon instead, which is pretty decent on Samsung’s part.

Here’s what Samsung had to say – “Due to the high level of interest in the Gear VR promotion, delivery times for Gear VR and Gear S2 are now extending into May and potentially Summer 2016. You have the choice of submitting for the Gear VR or Gear S2 on delayed shipment or a $100 coupon code towards a purchase of any product category on Samsung.com.”

So are you going to wait for your freebie or claim the $100 instead? Let us know in the comments section below.
