Right now you can pick up a free pair of premium earbuds if you purchase Samsung’s Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8, the two flagships from 2017. Samsung just started running a promotion in which anyone who purchases either phone directly through its online store gets the Gear IconX (2018) at no extra cost.
The only downside to this deal is that you’re not choosing what color the Gear IconX comes in. While Samsung’s wireless earbuds are sold in pink and gray, the freebie is limited to black.
It’s a great offer since Samsung normally charges $199 and the product itself is of high quality. We reviewed the Gear IconX back in November, and it easily became one of our top picks for wireless earbuds.
Both carrier and unlocked variants of the phones are eligible for the deal. So you don’t necessarily have to get an unlocked variant even though it’ll provide you with more flexibility. If you’re particularly keen on getting exactly what your carrier sells, you can pick up their variant and still get the Gear IconX for free.
