I was just researching switching from TMobile to any other carrier and first saw the BOGO free Galaxy S7 deal ($700 value) at AT&T... then saw the get a free Gear VR ($150 value)... I also looked at Verizon & Sprint Deals.

For me the AT&T deal was the best. My bill would be lower than my TMobile bill after combined DirecTV credit of $10 month.

I chatted with AT&T online, also went to a AT&T store which told me the VR deal was dead but they had the SR2 watches $200 off, finally went to Best Buy so I could see all the phone colors and tunred out they were offering BOGO free on the phone, two (2) free Gear VRs, and $200 off the watch.... plus an additional $50 off of each phone via instant gift card.

For me this worked out great as I was paying more monthly to TMobile... plus 2 free Gear VRs and I decided to grab the Gear S2 Classic watch for $50 + $10/monthly service - the DirecTv $10 credit so basically the same monthly service bill as I had - but with 2 brand new Galaxy S7 phones for $23 total a month. A pretty damn cool smart watch.. And some Best Buy credits to come... whatever they may be.

Total out of pocket today was approximately $100

Just knowing it's an AT&T deal, you forgot the most important detail:
BOGO after monthly credit for 30 months...
(I was lazy to look it up, but that's at&t for you)

Its hard to defend/argue with some of the stupidity or logic on these replies....

Unless your phone or service is free you are paying something to somebody. I am happy getting 2 new phones + some perks for basically the same price I was paying for 1 phone and the old crap I had.... plus I received 2 free Gear VR's I can sell or give as gifts.

If you have a better deal then post it! I am all for it....and I can return this stuff and jump in on your deal. Confused

Unless you are an iPhone Bitch then I really don't want your deal!!!!

They have the VRs in stock in the store; no need to submit to Samsung's website; I walked out the door with them. I believe the samsung site states something like 'excludes bestbuy'... you can google for that.

You have to pay the taxes on the phones. The 2x$50 gift cards they let me use immediately to pay the 'taxes' do on the phones. So instead of $70 ish per phone (10% in illinois) I ended paying like $20 each phone.

Thanks, you are correct. Website says that they have teamed with best buy so the vr in store are the only 2 that you will get with this deal.

I think if you cleaned up the post with just the Best Buy info & get rid of some of the back story, the deal will be more clear.
It seems like a good deal upfront. I'm not familiar with AT&T pricing or billing, so I can't speak on that. Something to look into.
