Sprint Launching Buy One Get One Free Promotion for the Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III and Galaxy Victory Starting From Friday


The Samsung Galaxy lineup is one of the quickest selling smartphones in the market right now with the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy S III at the top of the list currently. But we’ll speak about the latter today, as Sprint is putting up the device on a very attractive buy-one-get-one free promotion. This promotion will go live on Friday the 7th and will last until the 24th of this month, just a day prior to Christmas. The info was gathered courtesy of a leaked Sprint brochure which has now been revealed to the world ahead of schedule.

The brochure clearly mentions that the promotion is valid on select Galaxy smartphones, but it only includes three smartphones. And no, it doesn’t include the mighty Galaxy Note II, unfortunately. The promotion will apparently be valid on the Galaxy S II from last year, the Galaxy S III and the mid-ranged Galaxy Victory. Now one doesn’t have to be a genius to guess which smartphone will sell the most, so it is advised you rush to the stores on Friday to get your favorite Galaxy device from the carrier. This isn’t exactly Black Friday sales, but it seems like Sprint is having a slightly delayed Black Friday. As you would expect, the offer is applicable for new and upgrading customers on Sprint’s network, and will require you to sign a two year contract.

The brochure also reveals an “unlimited edition” of the Galaxy S III. We presume this has something to do with the unlimited data plans that Sprint is known for. While you might be well informed about the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S III, the newly launched Galaxy Victory might be somewhat of a mystery. Well, the device was launched on Sprint in September, and it features a 4-inch display, a dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. It might not appeal to the tech savvy folk, but it’s not a bad option if Sprint runs out of the Galaxy S III, which is very likely to happen. Are you looking forward to this new promotion from Sprint? If yes, let us know which phone you’ll be grabbing. It seems like the holiday sales have already begun and we expect other carriers to follow suit soon.
