Verizon Wireless started selling the Samsung Fascinate smartphone online on Wednesday. To sweeten the deal for would-be buyers, the company is offering a buy-one, get-one-free deal.

Consumers looking to get their hands on two Fascinate devices will first need to buy one of them for $300 with a two-year contract. Upon doing so, they will receive a $100 mail-in rebate, dropping the price of that device to $200. Next, they will need to buy the second Fascinate for $100. That, too, will include a $100 mail-in rebate, effectively dropping the price of the second device to zero.

As with anything, there are some rules that govern whether consumers get the free Fascinate. A new two-year contract and Verizon's $30 monthly data plan are required on both lines. And since the company is offering mail-in rebates, customers will be forced to plunk down $400 to get the deal going.

The Fascinate is the latest release in Samsung's Galaxy S line of Android-based smartphones. CNET's Bonnie Cha recently reviewed the device. She found it to be "sleek and powerful" and gave it an "Excellent" rating.
