Samsung’s New Program Offers iPhone Users To Test Drive Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+ For Free
In a bold move that is sure to grab the attention of potential customers, Samsung has announced a new 'Ultimate Test Drive' program that will allow iPhone users to test drive a Samsung Galaxy smartphone for a whole month absolutely free.
The way the program works is fairly simple actually. Samsung is offering three smartphones to test drive during the 30-day period - Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy S6 Edge. And in case you're wondering, there's no standard Galaxy S6 on trial. Once you've selected your handset which you want to take for a spin, you'll then be required to select which carrier you wish to use it on. With that out of the way too, you'll be required to pony up $1 to process your order. The smartphone will then be shipped to you, and you can use it to your heart's content. And yes, Samsung will also bear the carrier charges, so you can go full-on berserk on cellular data during the trial period.
One thing worth noting here is that this offer is limited to the United States only, and you must be an iPhone user as well if you want to take advantage of the whole deal. If you fail to qualify on even one condition then you can't be a part of Samsung's Ultimate Test Drive program.
Lastly, once the 30-day trial period is up, users will be given a 5-day grace period to send the device back to Samsung. Failure to do so will result in the user being charged for the device's full price, which means your laziness can cost you way beyond 700 bucks, so be sure to return the device back to Samsung on time. Furthermore, if a user damages a device, such as breaking the screen etc., then Samsung will charge $100 from your credit card, so be sure to keep that in mind as well.
Samsung will also throw in a Smart Switch cable into the package, in case the user decides to jump ship and wants to stick to a Galaxy smartphone for good. Of course, Samsung will not give you the phone for free if you decide to keep it.
It's a rather surprising move on Samsung's end, and something which has been done before in the past by other companies too, with T-Mobile being a notable example here, where the carrier offered users to test drive an iPhone 5s for seven days.
