Samsung giving away 256GB microSD with Galaxy S7

The deal is for one week only and is being offered with all Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge purchases.


If you're sitting on the fence about what phone to buy, Samsung is offering a new deal with its current flagship: a free 256GB microSD card with every Galaxy S7 Edge or Galaxy S7. The card is the Samsung 256GB microSD EVO+ memory card that retails for $250.

With the Galaxy S8 rumored to be dropping at the end of March, it makes sense for Samsung to be trying to shift Galaxy S7 stock. After the exploding Galaxy Note 7 debacle, a bit of customer goodwill can't go astray either.

The card offers up to "95MBps read and 90MBps write speed with Class 10 and U3 compatibility," and is ideal for 4K video recording and playback, Samsung says.

The offer is only valid for US customers who purchase a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge or Galaxy S7 between February 8 and February 14. Head to the Samsung website for the deal.
