Free Samsung Gear VR in time for Father’s Day #GearVR #ad

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

Mobile virtual reality has finally arrived and I get to be one of the first few to tell you all about the free Samsung Gear VR. I don’t know about your dad but my dad does not need a tie for every day of the week. I mention ties because I’ve been to several department stores this week, and the tie sections were very active. There were wives buying ties for the husbands. Daughters buying ties for the dads. There was a tie tying frenzy going on and like a lot of you, I avoided the tie section as a gift option for Father’s Day. No ties for dad this year. Mind you, I have nothing against ties, but if you must give dad one for Father’s Day, use it as a bow to wrap up his new Free Samsung Gear VR from Best Buy.

Instead of heading to the tie department, I checked out the deals going on, at Best Buy. While I found a lot of things my dad would like, top on my list is the Samsung Gear VR. Virtual Reality at it’s finest. Wouldn’t your dad or husband like to be the first of your little circle of friends to own one of these, plus $50 of Virtual Reality content with purchase, or lease and activation of select Samsung Smartphones? Because mine would. My dad is a trend setter so I like to get him products that he can show off to his buddies. Not only would he be able to show off his new gift, he’d use this product unlike the dozens of ties he has stored away in the back of his closet. I’m just about ready to raid his tie stash to make a quilt out of them.

Even though I consider myself to be tech savvy, I had to do a little research to see what all the Samsung Gear VR could do. By spending a few minutes reading over this product, I was able to save dozens of shopping hours. I’ve saved you hours of shopping time too because there’s no need to shop around when I’ve got the perfect gift option just a click away. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t enjoy movie night with Netflix. Just imagine turning movie night into a virtual reality experience with movies like Jurassic World Apatosaurus and EVE:Gunjack. My dad would love the ultimate watching experience that a Samsung Gear VR would bring to his living room.

In order to take advantage of this free offer, you’ll need to buy or lease and activate a Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ or Note5. Isn’t it time to update your mobile experience? Right now you can save up to $150 on select Samsung Galaxy smartphones with a 2-year contract, or get a $100 Best Buy gift card with lease or monthly installment plan. That’s it, folks. Happy shopping at Best Buy.

Mobile virtual reality has finally arrived. Be at the center of exciting games, watch the best of Hollywood in your own private cinema, socialize with friends, and so much more. The Samsung Gear VR drops you right in the action — and it’s only from Samsung and Oculus.

* Offer is good 6/5-6/18 online or in Best Buy stores.

    Have yours arrived yet? Can you play video games on it? I would love to play some action games on it. And watch other people play horror games, because I think it would be hilarious.

    My husband is dying to get his hands on one of those head sets! I knew they were around but not particularly as interested in them as he is – he is super dooper excited about them and I know if we manage to get any spare cash any time soon he’d jump at the chance of grabbing one!

    My husband is in the market for a new Galaxy Note 5. This offer might just be the kicker!! Thanks for the information.

    I think that the vr is an awesome product. My husband would probably love to get that as a gift. Even I would love to get one of those!

    My husband enjoys his Samsung VR gear. He got it when they launched the phone.

    This will be a cool gift though I don’t know if my father will love it he is kinda old for this.

    My husband would truly appreciate this but I’m not going to get him a new phone just to get one since he just upgraded. Guess this is going to have to wait.

    This sounds like it would be fun to get! Great gift idea :)

    What a cool idea for tech savvy dads. My husband would want one when he sees this.

    Wow I literally just saw an ad for this. I think my dad would really like these for father’s day. I doubt he would use them the day after though :)

    That’s amazing! I’m sure a lot of tech savvy dads would love to receive a gift such as this! I think it’s an awesome deal, especially for father’s day.

    My husband wants one so bad. Great post. Very informative.

    I don’t think my husband would go for this. I bet both my son in law and my son would think these are a great new “toy” to experience, though!

    This is such a great Father’s Day gift! My dad is an Android guy and he got the Gear VR with his phone for free a few months ago and it’s SO cool!! Me and my sister always use it haha!

    Whoa! this is a great gift for a lucky dad. I wish they would create this same gadget for Iphones. This could be very helpful for people who have trouble sleeping at night.

    Wish they made this for the iPhone. It looks like so much fun. VR is definitely back in a big way.

    Wow, I sure would love to get my hands on this! Lol, we’ve been warned about ties, socks and underpants, maybe it’s time we bought my husband something different!

  31. Melisa

    My husband has memories of the old VR and has no interest in the new stuff. I on the other hand, am quite intrigued by this!

    This dad here, my husband, would love a new phone for fathers day. The Vr sounds amazing for what it can do.

    I love technology. Being able to transport into a walk in the rainforest? Brilliant.
