Samsung has always been very generous with perks—buy a device and get services for free. It looks like the company plans on offering even more starting Jan. 4. According to a promotion first spotted by Android Central, Samsung will offer a free year of Netflix to anyone who purchases a Galaxy Tab S, Note 4 or Galaxy S5. Not a bad way to kick off the new year.
The deal applies to both existing and new Netflix subscribers. Twelve free months of the video service is pretty stinking generous, and a nice way to spend time using a new device. The Galaxy S5 is a little dated, of course, so you're probably better off going for the Note 4; if you're in need of a tablet, the Tab S isn't a bad way to go.
The promotion is only being offered in the U.S., and is limited to the first 115,000 customers to take advantage. There's a second promotion being offered in conjunction; buy a UHD TV and the first 10,000 customers will get Netflix for a year. Customers are required to go to SamsungPromotions.com/netflix to submit an offer claim, which will then be verified by Samsung.
Unfortunately, the free year of Netflix is only being offered to those who make a purchase during the promotion period, so anyone who purchased a Note 4 over the holiday period is out of luck. Once the promotion kicks off on Jan. 4, buyers will have until Jan. 17 to take advantage of the offer; Netflix codes will expire on March 20, 2015, Samsung says.
