no-smartphone-$100000


We are so dependent on our smartphones these days that just a single day without one can feel quite disconcerting and extremely inconvenient, but what about a whole year? While there is little doubt about the fact that it would be very, very hard as long as you are still living within civilization, Vitaminwater (Coca Cola subsidiary) will give you a total of $100,000 for your inconveniences, provided you can complete the challenge without cheating! How will they know if the contestant cheated? Well, the contestant will have to take a polygraph test at the end of it to prove that they are indeed telling the truth about their technological abstinence!

As you probably know already, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is dead and chances of the smartphone ever resurfacing are almost none. However, Samsung would like to keep their customers from going elsewhere and that is exactly why they are offering $100 to all Note 7 customers who are willing to switch over to another Samsung smartphone, rather than leaving the brand completely or asking for a full refund. The extra $100 will be given to the customer via bill credit. Although this incentive is only available to the customers in the US at the moment, Samsung is expected to extend similar offers to other regions as well.


Here's the official statement by Samsung, "As a sign of our appreciation for your patience and loyalty, we are offering up to a $100 bill credit from select carrier or retail outlets if you exchange your Galaxy Note 7 for another Samsung smartphone, less any incentive credits already received."


Just in case you want nothing to do with Samsung smartphones for a while, most retailers and carriers will give you your money back, along with a $25 bonus. If you plan to switch to a different brand, you will still get a $25 bonus from most of them. Please note that if you had already exchanged your Note 7 when the first recall was initiated, the $25 bonus which you received then will be subtracted in all three scenarios.

If you were planning to get a S8 or S8+ from Sprint, you will now have one more reason to do so. If you pre-order either of the two devices from Sprint, Samsung will throw in an e-gift certificate worth $100 with the package. The certificate can however, only be used to buy or get a discount from the Samsung website.


If you choose any other carrier, there are some pretty good deals going on there as well and it mainly includes a gift offer. The gift offer translates to the buyer getting a 256GB MMC card, an Oculus content box and a Gear VR with controller/AKG headphones by paying only $99 extra. Granted it's not a bad deal, but we could be seeing better ones in the future.


Which offer appeals to you more? The gift bundle for an extra 100 bucks or the $100 e-certificate? Let us know in the comments.
