Got a Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2? Get a free Flip Cover and NFC Tectiles by registering it with Samsung


If you’re on Facebook, you might want to run on over to Samsung Mobile USA’s Facebook page here and register your new Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2. Why? Because if you do, Samsung will send a “care package” your way as a free gift. Inside, you’ll find one of their official Flip Covers (in either pink, blue, orange, or guacamole) and a few NFC TecTiles.

What’s more, newly registered Samsung owners will also receive a 50%-off coupon code for the accessory of their choice on Samsung’s official web store. There you can get a spare battery for the device of your device, bluetooth headset, or even additional Flip Covers for half off. Not too bad, right?

UPDATE: If you don’t have a Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy S3, you wont receive a Flip Cover or the TecTiles. You do still get the 50% off coupon as a door prize.

You’ll need to enable the Facebook app first, then revisit the link to get the popup for registering your device. Enter in the necessary information and you’ll then receive an email to receive your care package. Better hurry as supplies are limited.

Thanks, Steven!

  1. Regestered my Galaxy nexus… Only got 50% off the samsung store…

    1. Damn. They couldn’t have run out that quickly, but I guess it’s possible. :/

      1. @Mitchsamuels:disqus
        Wait a minute — you don’t have a Note 2 or Galaxy S3 so yeah. That’s why they’re probably not sending you a Flip Cover. Lol

        1. But I at least wanted the damn tectile things!

        2. the tectiles would still be nice!

        3. Same here, though I only registered to get the TecTiles (NFC tags). Might want to update the post to say that Galaxy Nexus owners aren’t eligible for it.

        4. Might want to edit your article to clarify this. I figured the Nexus wasn’t included, but your article did say “others”.

      2. It could just be because mine is a Nexus and doesn’t have a flip cover:(

    2. Same happened to me

  2. Question is, why are they so dead set on having people register?

    1. collecting emails for marketing?

      1. i dont care samsung can email me all they want i got a free cover and tech tiles and the emails will just be offers for future products anyway.

    2. lol since when did companies give out free stuff without any strings attached. You give you get. if you’re getting the smart dock for the note 2 , they’re basically giving you 50 dollars off.

    3. Some people want “free stuff” but don’t want to pay for it. Get your head out of your behind dude, someone always had to pay for “free stuff”. If registering is too intrusive for you, you’re welcome to pay for the products

  3. Erreur 404 sur le lien ^^

  4. Getting page not found message

  5. I got an email saying thanks for registering. I filled out the pop Window and all. What am I missing?

  6. Thanks phandroid! I was able to get a Flip cover for my Galaxy Note 2 :D

  7. Nvm just took a few minutes to send it. Thanks Chris and Samsung!!!

  8. I’m assuming this is just for USA customers because it’s only on the Samsung Mobile USA Facebook page (Owner’s hub)?

  9. Yeah I got the email several minutes after signing up. So it may take time peeps

  10. Thanks Phandroid/Chris!!! Just registered my Note 2 and received an email from Samsung for my “prize package”. They are shipping me an orange flip cover (they let you choose what color you want and I already have white/blue/green) and the NFC tags. Only bummer is 6-8 weeks delivery but it was free and I didn’t have to pay shipping! Woot!

  11. No love for the galaxy s2 owners… :'(

    1. Need a phone that’s Flip Cover and Tectile compatible :/

  12. Chris, you the man! Thx for sharing! Registered my N2 and requested the mint color cover. Should arrive in 6-8 weeks they said :-)

  13. Got an orange flip cover for my grey note 2. Unfortunately, only colors left or available to choose from were Orange, Mint and Pink. But, hey, it’s a free.

  14. Chris Chavez, would it have really bust your balls to mention the letters USA in the above article?

    1. Or Facebook in the title.

      1. hah, i reinstated facebook and got my confirmation email from samsung. Then immediately deactivated it again :)

      2. You know what — why don’t I just write the whole post in the title!?!?


        1. Ya, turn this site into a twitter like page. Twitter is for people taking Adderall.

          1. What wrong with Adder… Ohh! Butterfly! Ohh! shiny Penny!

    2. There are other countries outside the USA? O_o


    3. This IS an American website, reporting on events and products affecting AMERICANS, no?

  15. Booo, don’t know if it’s going to work since I already registered sometime last month =
    Thanks for the heads up though =]

    1. Apparently, it will.

  16. Thanks guys! This is an excellent offer! Got my mint flip coming in 6-8 weeks for my Note II.

  17. Ugh. Registered over twenty minutes ago and it said to check my email…nothing. not even under spam.

    1. Are you checking your facebook liked email? or your Samsung account email.

  18. Anyone know if you can do this if youre already registered?

    1. yes you can. i just did. i registered mine on 24th of October and i’m getting an orange flip cover in 6-8 weeks.

      1. How do you do it? When I go to the facebook page the app says my email is signed up already.

        It helps if you check the box that says to use my existing account.

        1. i used my existing account and it prompt a window that says check your email for offers. then it sent me the email enclosing the screenshot on this article

          1. hmmm, it’s been almost an hour since I did this and no love =

          2. got mine instantly. :S check your spam folder?

          3. Checked the spam folder…I got nothing. I guess no dice for me =

    2. Conformed, yes.

      1. Confirmed

  19. I got mine for my note but could only pick from orange mint and pink.. 6 to 8 weeks delivery

      1. Hahahahha right that’s a studly pink phone

  20. Thanks Chris, I got a orange cover coming for me in 6-8 weeks for my Gnote 2! I love free stuff!

    1. Free sh*t!

  21. Oh, and by the way I wish you people would read. The article clearly said if you have a galaxy s3 or a galaxy note 2. I know I don’t have better reading comprehension skills than everybody else commenting on this post?!

    1. the article does say “Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 or others.”

      1. The article says this which is copied and pasted from the phandroid article itself: “Got a Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2? Get a free Flip Cover and NFC Tectiles by registering it with Samsung” I don’t see Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2 or other.

        1. Changed the wording to clarify some more.

          1. You didn’t have to do that. The original wording was fine. I just think some people are upset because they probably couldn’t get what they wanted due to not matching the criteria, which was very plainly stated. When I read the title I didn’t think “oh maybe Chris is talking about all galaxy phones”, or “I just want the tec tiles I’ll still register anyway because I saw a phantom others in the title”. I saw the title and registered becsuse I had one of the two phones which were clearly listed: A samsung galaxy s3 or a samsung galaxy note 2. (The latter of which im a proud owner). I wish people would stop being edit nazis.

  22. Does anyone have the code for 50% off

    1. just register you lazy b lol

  23. Awesome, except Samsung keeps insisting I live in California. Guess I’ll try it anyway.

  24. The linK does not work! I cant find Samsung’s facebook page for this!

  25. Done!

  26. Now for the 6-8 week wait for my Flip Cover and Tectiles. Thanks Chris!

  27. Thank you for the heads up on this Chris! Much appreciated!

  28. Good for Samsung! Im personally using the Body Glove Case from Sprint. But ordered a cover anyway lol [not my pictures]

    1. cool case

  29. Nvm I finally got my wrong password email with my new password in it thanks again chris now il be recieving my free flip cover and techtiles :-) :-)

  30. is there anywat we can get some extended battery with that coupon? for S3

  31. they are still giving them away its just odd colors lime green orange and pink i got the orange and a 6-8 week wait

  32. Thanks Chris, I have an orange cover coming to me in 6-8 weeks for my Gnote 2! I love free stuff!

  33. I still havent got the email after an hour (no, not in spam).

    Liked the SMUsa page, used my exiting Samsung account, put in the IMEI#.

    I did reg my phone back in July. Not sure if that is the factor….

    1. I think if you already registered you are SOL. I haven’t gotten anything back either, but my wife’s phone which we haven’t registed yet eventually got an email.

      1. Well, I also reg’d my wife’s previously-unreg’d phone and havent got an email for that one either. They better not tell me I’m SOL. We have way too many Samsung products (phones, tablets, TVs, monitors, appliances, etc) for them to exclude me because I reg’d early.

        1. Finally got the email for the 2nd one (marked as spam by Gmail), clicked the link and it’s freakin expired! 10 hours in to the 12/28 – 2/11 promo period. Pathetic.

  34. Thanks a lot! I just ordered my free flip cover!!

  35. Mint, Pink and Orange remain. For those wanting to see what the colors look like, go to this page and click on the product photo on the left. Then when the image is enlarged, you’ll see a drop down box on the right side with colors.

  36. Lovely, wish they had colors other than the dreadful potions available, but I guess you’re not supposed to look a gift horse in the mouth

  37. I got my code pretty fast, however, all they had left were pink cases. I will give it to the wife for hers. I just put I got mine in DEC.

  38. All thats left is pink :( thanks for the heads up though Chris!

  39. thanks Chris for looking out for the little guys. had to steal wife’s Facebook account since I don’t have one. all in for the free stuff. btw blue was not an option. now I’ll wait 6~8weeks. thanks again

    1. Mint is as close as you will get…

  40. Apparently they’re only doing it for the first 12,000 of each (12k SIII and 12k Note 2), and I was too late for my Galaxy S III.

    Too bad, but I am going to enjoy the 50% code.

    1. Ah…maybe it is over for the S3…I have the Note 2 and it is still going on…

  41. Bah, it’s over :(

    1. I just ordered it…”Thanks! Your order is now complete. Please allow 6-8 weeks for you care package to arrive.”

  42. They no longer are sending the freebies. :(

  43. Thank you Steven and Chris for bringing this to our attention! :D Tons of us got a free case and tags because of you guys.

    1. How is it over now? Promo goes thru Jan 2013 and I just got my freebies 3 minutes ago. They have 12,100 to give away for the S3 and the N2.

      1. Indeed, it seems it’s only over for the S3.

  44. Samsung Galaxy S III offer has been redeemed. Galaxy Note II still has a few more.

  45. all it let me pick was pink, yay tectiles tho

  46. No love for the UK? I see how it is, Samsung. I see.

  47. Apparently I have an international version of the phone, which makes little sense. As such, can’t register it. What the hell, Samsung. ALASKA IS STILL USA. COME ON. WE GET SCREWED WITH SHIPPING TOO.

  48. Just got my freebies & smartdock is on back order. No problems reg my N2

  49. Awesome. Says my IMEI is invalid. Is that because I have a Canadian phone or something?

  50. I registered my phone, got a link to order the cover with a coupon code. Tried to order & got a message they are out! I called two #’s, got the runaround to call other #’s, the #’s given to me don’t work on the weekend. Come on Samsung, quit giving us customers the runaround. You should have not tell customers it was a offer for 9 wks. I can see running out in 9 weeks but 2 day’s? Poor promotion Samsung.

  51. Samsung USA Facebook page not found, is it over?

    1. The page exists, it’s Samsung Mobile USA. Also the promotion for free stuff is over, but you can still get the 50% off code for accessories.

      1. Thanks !!

        ——– Original message ——–

  52. They ask you to provide them with you IMEI? Ya sure would you like my SSI and other info too? (sarcasm). Sounds very suspicious to me, and official website or not

    1. you obviously have never resisted a phone before. you can’t register your specific device any other way

  53. Went to FB, opened page. Registered (which is a pain), got offer email went instantly to Samsung site for the gift – all out. But the offer is still listed on the FB page, of course. Clicked “unsubscribe” on the email, go through the confirm page, get told “7 to 10 business days to process my request.” Very very high tech these Samsung folks.

  54. Followed the steps to register thru Facebook app …only got a. 50%off coupon

  55. This doesn’t seem to work.

  56. No more freebies, got the coupon though and I’m checking out the tectiles when they come in.

  57. registered and only got a coupon

  58. No more cover…damn…

  59. Only got the 50% off coupon for Verizon S3….maybe they are out or it is not for i535 devices.

  60. As of Saturday 12/29 noon PST only the pink covers were available for the Note2 with this deal. Soooo I got a pink one…

  61. will indians be getting this?

  62. i guess they are out of supplies?i only got the coupon by email

    1. Ok I must be stupid. I click on the “here” link and it says its not available!

  63. I have a GS3 and they did not offer me a flip cover. Just the 50% coupon. Disappointed!
