Customers who purchase certain Samsung smartphones can choose between two gift bundles.

Purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus could net you hundreds in goodies.

Samsung is getting into the holiday shopping spirit by kicking off its "Gifts of the Season" promotion. Beginning Friday and running through November 22, US customers who purchase the Samsung Galaxy S6 , S6 Edge , S6 Edge+ , or Galaxy Note 5 at full retail value can pick up goodies worth a few hundred dollars each.

It is becoming increasingly common for smartphone makers to offer limited time promotions as part of a new release to sway shoppers. Gifts in the form of extra batteries, chargers, or a few free months of premium service is one way for companies to cut through the noise of competing makers.

Samsung customers can pick one of two gift packages. Behind door No. 1 we have a Swarovski crystal jewelry package, which includes the fast charge portable battery pack, a wireless charging pad and a crystal phone cover. Behind door No. 2 we have the fast charger portable battery pack, wireless charging pad and Samsung Level On headphones. Each bundle carries the same retail value of approximately $350.

In addition to the gift promotion, customers who activate Samsung Pay on these Galaxy smartphones can score a $50 cash rebate. The two deals work together, and applies if you've already bought one of the phones, but haven't yet activated Samsung Pay. Samsung is also forking over $100 in Google Play credit to anyone who trades in an iPhone for a Samsung phone.
