Samsung now sending approvals for free Gear VR with Galaxy S7 promo

Samsung has now started sending out approval emails to customers who took advantage of the manufacturer's promotion offering a free Gear VR (or Gear S2 for Verizon customers) with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge. And while it's been a bit of a wait for some already, the email indicates shipping times may be pushed back as far as this summer due to demand. From the email:

Congratulations! Your submission has been approved. We will ship your Samsung Gear S2 to the mailing address you provided when registering for this Offer. Please note that due to the high level of interest in the Verizon Offer promotion, delivery times for Gear S2 are now extending into May and potentially Summer 2016.

While the shipping date may be up in the air, Samsung says that it will send out another email with tracking information once your Gear VR or S2 has indeed shipped.
