Samsung Tectiles

Samsung is running a promotion on its official Facebook page that lets Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy SIII (S3) users get their hands on a free flip cover and set of 6 TecTiles for registering their device. All you have to do is head to the Samsung Facebook page, click the "Holiday Offers" button and then follow through to register your device. While quantities last, you can get some free swag for giving Samsung a little information about yourself. You'll need an active Facebook account and authorize the Samsung "app" for your page, but that's about it.

Registering your phone with the manufacturer may already be something you want to do, so might as well get something free for it, right? Head to the source links below to get your own.

"Promotion has ended" Rat farts.

ShahinTr says:

Just like to mention, it only applies to the USA customers, and it says, you 'could' get your hands on one for registering. So take it with a pinch of salt.

ezcats says:

Well considering that I just got conformation of one...its true. It says "could" because its only for GS3's and Note 2's. Awesome Samsung...good job here.

mwara244 says:

Registered my Galaxy nexus last January and all Samsung gave me was free spam about all their other products!

KSmithInNY says:

Sweet! ... not so much for those that own own of these devices (me), and refuse to use Facebook (me), but rather use G+ the official social network of android (me) ... soooooo ... yeah ... how about this weather we've been having? Nothing to see here.

ezcats says:

You dont even have to sign in...are you really that against facebook that you stop yourself from getting free stuff? :)

return_0 says:

Okay, let me make a useless account, give Facebook my email to send me spam, and open myself to viruses on a social network I'm never going to use, just to register a device I don't own and not get the free stuff anyways!

Remember, he/she doesn't even own a GS3/GN2, so this would be pointless.

Oh, and sorry if that came off as harsh :)

ScottColbert says:

Yup because making a dummy email account is so difficult.

Actually, they said "own own" and logic is telling me it should have been, "own one" not "dont own" But either could be true, Though it wouldn't make much sense if was "down own" as it would have came out "dont own of these devices" So we don't truly know if they do or don't have the device.

But, It's a little overboard to say signing up to, or using, facebook is going to get your email spammed and get viruses. You'll get viruses just signing onto the internet. The only time I get emails from FB is when I have mail that needs to be read.. That's really about it, and I've never gotten a virus from facebook, but then again I personally don't click on anything I assume could be a virus. But, anyways.. If I personally had a gs3/gn2 and didn't have a facebook I'd make one just to get the free stuff. Just like I made a twitter account that i'll never use for more than some giveaway's and stuff. To each their own, but the way I see it.. free stuff is free stuff.

SuperTongue says:

If you don't own an S3 or N2, why bother commenting? This is a great offer for those that do.

Also - wish I had known about that Facebook email spam and viruses when I signed up years ago! I basically have to buy a new computer and use a different email every week. /s

return_0 says:

YES. That is exactly my situation.

Registered my S3, but no email. Dang. (nothing in Spam either)

AndroidS3 says:

No UK? F***ing rediculous! What have USA got that UK hasnt so the UK cant have it? I bet iys because the usa have to wait ages for jelly bean so they say you can get these free as an 'apology'

bigtank says:

"What have USA got that UK hasnt"

1. straight teeth

2. Obama

3. Beyonce

4. Nascar

5. Pawn Stars


return_0 says:

I don't know why anyone would be proud of Beyonce, I don't know what Pawn Stars is, I don't care about Nascar, and I'm not even sure of the first point. I still agree with #2 though. And then again we have Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, and Sarah Palin. And I really like British people.

But since I live in the US, I guess I have to agree. Oh well.

kj11 says:

You should have just stopped at 1.

MarkSeven says:

This is so wrong but so funny.. Smh Lol!

Madness87 says:

It's simple... America has a population nearly 5 times larger than the UK.

I could go on, but in the sheer scope of things, no one cares about the UK anymore. Culturally still relevant due to all the colonization and WASP descendants in other countries, but economically and militarily no one cares.

kwright817 says:

Mine's on the way (so the confirmation said). Says it will take 6-8 weeks, but still a nice gesture.

jayochs says:

don't think it's working for me. registered and it said i'd get an email, and i never got one..even checked my spam. registered my GS3. oh well.

porky145 says:

Thanks for the heads up!

edyts says:

Wish Samsung Canada would offer the same.

WhoMe says:

Thanks for the tweet AC, got my Note 2 registered and my gear is on the way. Nice deal! Not many colors left it seems, had pink orange and some other weird shade to choose from, but free is free. Thanks again for the heads up. The fine print says the first 12500 of each model gets it.

ozzyoztech says:

Just got my email and will get my stuff in 6-8 weeks. Thanks Android Central

JPhantom95 says:

It took me a few minutes to get the email but it showed. The flip cover color choices weren't the best, but hey it's free! (Pink, lime green, or orange were my only options.)

rprit001 says:

Yeah, unfortunately I in a sense missed out on this offer. The only color option left was pink by the time I got around to it(and being a man... not really into having a pink flip cover). I ordered it regardless though in the hopes a friend might want it.

weasel123 says:

got my confirmation. thanks for the heads up.

jeffreii says:

No email here either. I wonder if it's because I already registered my S3 with Samsung USA? I'm not sure that I did but I think so...who knows.

jeffreii says:

Nevermind - email finally showed up. Got the care package coming...though I had to choose orange for the flip color (other options were lime green and pink...).

Also was interested in the 50% off coupon code but they are out of the 11 pin MHL adapter...

jcastag says:

yeah this is a nice gesture, but it definitely seems like they're trying to get rid of some colors that nobody wanted so they came up with this promotion

ezcats says:

Well at least its something. You dont see other companies doing this unless its a defect (*cough* Apple) :P

I dont see whats so bad about orange...looks ok to me.

JahmeZZ says:

Mine is on the way for my Galaxy Note II. Sucks it will take 6-8 weeks to arrive. That's okay, at least it's free. One thing I would like to note is that they're only giving the care package to the first 12,000 registered customers of each product and they only had the orange, mint and pink colors left of the flip cover.

Thank you so much for the heads up AC! This almost makes me feel better after cracking the digitizer on my S3 this week =/

Marcellus1 says:

Thanks for the heads up! Registered and my care package is on its way!

Hatshepsut says:

What happens if you've recently registered your phone already?

Fussolia says:

I used a different email address. It worked fine.

draken says:

I signed up for my Galaxy Note II. Thanks for the heads up, AC. Saved me from buying a couple of NFC tags for playing around.

kj11 says:

Good looking out AC, registered my GS3 and got the email confirmation right away. Ordered the lime green and I'm pretty stoked about it. Thanks again!

Thanks for the info. Got the Orange!

vinny jr says:

My care package from Samsung is on the way. Wish they had better colors of cases to choose from. Orange, lime green or pink, what the hell is that, I picked lime green. Last week I received 50% off my Samsung C Pen because I signed up on their Samsung home page I think it was. You can't beat that. The new SGS4 that has been talked about looks like a beast. I hope it is all true, that would be one hell of a phone. Samsung is really bringing it these days, Love it. Thank You Samsung.


sforsyth01 says:

Thanks Android Central. Got my orange one coming for my GS3.

And to the people complaining about color selection... IT'S FREE!!!! Geesh.

wag375 says:

Just ordered mine! FYI blue is out. Only pink, lime green, and orange available. Thanks Samsung!

eRod v1.0 says:

FYI, I had to register a new account to get the email. 6-8 week wait on the flip cover.

slayerpsp says:

Don't need Facebook to do this I dont says 6-8 weeks for shipping had choice of green pink and orange went with orange wife got me the grey cover for xmas so now I will have two. Thanks for posting this love free stuff

Hand_O_Death says:

oDo it on a computer or in desktop mode. that was how i got it to work

fguills says:

Just did and received the email in 20 minutes. Thanks AC!!!

rookiegenius says:

nice! just signed up and got my email. Recently I've been interested in those tectiles. Now they are free. woot !! I dont like the flip case but hell it's free so who don't take it :D (got the orange, wish it had white tho)


rocket321 says:

I guess they are out of key lime green, only choice now is orange or pink....
Glad I got in for the freebies, I'm excited to use the NFC tectiles for some fun, and just might like the orange if its not too neon.

jays99 says:

Thanks for the heads up! My Pebble Blue SIII is gonna be rockin' an orange flip cover (it was that or pink)!

droidXclone says:

Aaaaand I will be receiving my pink flip cover in 6-8 weeks... all that was left. I was more interested in the tectiles anyways, I'll give the pink flip cover to my sister, who has a blue S3.

Gator352 says:

Heck I did this an hour and a half ago and it said thanks and to allow 6-8 weeks and still haven't received a confirmation email.

I got the Orange. Pink isn't for me.....

PiotrekDG says:

Maybe mention it's US only?

ybcthanerd says:

Wut about existing owners

wzehr says:

I havent heard yet

gottria says:

"We're sorry but the limited quantity promotion has ended. You can still look for great options at 50% off in our accessories store - just use the coupon code in your registration confirmation email."

Well that sucks. How many did they have, 50?

Machque says:

Same message I just got!
At least the coupon code is good for a couple of months.

ayg says:

I'm almost positive this isn't working for International Note 2's even if you have a US address. I'm getting "Invalid IMEI" when I put mine in.

I guess saving money with an international GT-N7100 on Simple Mobile has its drawbacks.

eltico40 says:

chrismage says:

Trying to register my S3 But cant find the Model Code anywhere. Any help wold be appreciated.

How and where can I get my free stuff?

Gator352 says:

No more free stuff. It's over. The first 12,100 people were awarded the free stuff. I did all it said and supposedly getting the free stuff but still haven't gotten a confirmation email stating I'm getting the free stuff.

Gator352 says:

Edit 6:32am:

Still haven't received my confirmation email.......

Argelius1 says:

Sweet. I got nothing (they ran out) and Samsung got my email address...

derawsaid says:

Jamookie says:

Yep, they ran out. No more free stuff. I got nothing and Samsung got a disposable e-mail address.

Biga173rd says:

No Dice dam that was fast they ran out quick. All i got was a promo code for %50 the dam flip covers are $40 :'( Now my gmail account is going to get flooded with samsung emails.

oh yea!

I went to the Facebook site and no email...Totally sucks!

Cubfan says:

Wish I would have seen that they ran out before I wasted my time. Now I have to unsubscribe from the flood of email I'll be getting, no doubt.

Andre-K says:

why do samsung assume it's customers hate privacy, and are on facebook ?
