Best Buy giving away Samsung Gear VR this weekend with compatible Galaxy phones


The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge may not be far off, but if you are more interested in VR than the next generation of Galaxy devices this deal may be enough to sway you.

This weekend if you buy a Samsung Galaxy smartphone that is compatible with the Gear VR (that would be the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ or Note5) a free Gear VR will automatically be added to your order.

While it may not hold up to the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or Playstation VR, the Gear VR is considerably cheaper and in this case won’t cost you a dime. There are some amazing experiences to be had with Gear VR and it does have one up on all of those higher powered VR rigs in that it is completely wireless.

Now I wouldn’t recommend going out and buying a Galaxy smartphone just to get the free Gear VR, it is only $99 after all, but if you were considering the purchase this is certainly a nice incentive to close the deal.
