Samsung Rewards (link for reference) offers 1000 Points for Free when you Make Samsung Internet Your Default Browser on eligible Samsung devices. Thanks cidvicious

Steps:

  2. Tap on the three dots menu icon on the top right of the screen
  3. Select Samsung Rewards (make sure your Samsung Pay account is logged in)
  4. Follow directions to make Samsung Internet your default browser
  5. 1000 Points should then be applied to your account instantly
Note, you may need to update the app to the latest version in order to replicate the offer. It will not work if you already have Samsung Internet as your default browser. In this case, download another browser (like chrome), make that your default browser, and try the steps again.

credit to alex210sa from the samsung pay subreddit for finding this (and giving me permission to repost it on slickdeals).

1. Open Samsung Internet (the browser pre-installed on your phone).
2. tap on the three dots menu icon on the top right of the screen.
3. select Samsung Rewards.
4. follow directions to make samsung internet your default browser.

Notes:

*Make sure your SamPay account is logged in (it should be automatically).

*It will not work if you already have Samsung Internet as your default browser. In this case, download another browser (like chrome), make that your default browser, and try the steps again.

*Make sure the app is up to date (some say you have to download and/or update from the google play store instead of from the galaxy apps store)

If you don't see the option to connect Samsung Pay to Samsung Internet in the Samsung Internet browser, update the Samsung Internet browser through the Google Play store vs. the Samsung Store.

You need browser version 6.2.01.12, if google play doesnt give it to you, then get it from apkmirror. This version. Not any other. Not newer 7.0, this version.

The points are worth 0.5 cent per point if you use samsung pay and retain its top reward status. If not, a little less. You can buy a visa debit code OR amazon or any other gift card. OR you could gamble. No, really, spin the wheel and give it all back.

This browser is actually better than Chrome!
- Adblocking extensions - speeds up page loading twice faster than Chrome and saves battery twice as much
- Login to websites with your Fingerprint or IRIS
- Night mode for best reading in the night, which is not similar to dark theme, it even changes webpages background/font text etc
- Better privacy/security with built in tracking blocker extensions
- Secret mode (Better than incognito mode) where you can do your most important transactions like BANK sites safely and securily

Dont just do this for points, give this browser a try for couple of days Applause


There is a second offer after you get this. "check out faster, save a card in samsung internet". While it uses samsung pay, the promo is for checking out with thr browser while shopping on mobile internet. You can try this with ANY card. Visa/discover/mastercard/used up gift card/whatever. It just has to be a new card. It is a two step process. First it says link a card, it may or may not bring up a card entry screen. If it does, you dont need to give it an address. And in step 2 it will ask for CVV. If step 1 doesnt show, try a second time. Or third. Make sure samsung pay is working. You dont need different cards. Just a card not aCtive in spay. When step2 (fill in cvv) is done, it will try to validate with the card issuer but give you the points whether or not it succeeds.

If you arent succeeding with 6.2 on either of these then your spay is out of date or the browser is not setup to be default OR you had chrome as primary browser and it has uninstalled android web view. On android 7 or later you can completely crash most apps by just disabling chrome. Chrome disables android web view and you must manually reinstall it from playstore.

The points showed up instantly, in my case. It showed the points on the browser itself.

The Samsung browser was already set as my default so I went into the system settings and changed it back to Chrome. Then I went back into the Samsung browser clicked the three dots selected promotions and there was a new tab with the 1000 points. Thanks OP

How long does it take before the points show up? Is it a "points will show up after a week from setting as default" or something?

I have never used this offer on my phone, but when going to the menu from within the samsung browser I don't have an option for "Samsung Rewards". What am I doing wrong?

Logged in to samsung pay btw.

Same here, but probably because I have the Samsung Internet APK sideloaded onto my Moto G4. Likely not gonna work at all without a Samsung phone and Samsung Pay in my case.

make sure it's updated. You might have to go to the galaxy apps store to update it if you don't have it configured to do so automatically.

make chrome your default browser, then try again.

make sure you're using the Samsung Internet browser, and NOT the Samsung Internet BETA.
