I want to Thank You Big Samsung!!!! I really appreciate this discount that was given. I was putting too much thought into it while trying to claim it but it was actually really simple and easy to do. It only took you 24 hours to process my proof of Note 7 purchase and that was Awesome!! I even went and bought more items because the total was still less than the Note 7 cost and the Note 8 will be a great device to have. #Notelover4Life!

Given that I was one of those who had the NOTE 7 (And was forced to settle, at same price with the lesser quality and usability of the S7Edge ..
IS This going to be offered by the Carriers too?
(I HATE .. absolutely HATE the S7Edge and have had to endure that thing now since the Note 7s were recalled (it was the 3rd phone in less than a month .. had the original Note7, got a replacement Note7, then no choice at all .. got stuck withthe S7Edge which is basically unproductive with my disabilities .. )
I also want to know if this is going to be in addition to the offer that comes with the preorder (and why was it chosen to offer the camera or wireless charger/memory card instead of having the customer make a choice -- like for the far more useful Gear Watches???)
Again .. it's a matter of tracking my health and usefulness for my current life ..
(I am SICK and TIRED of the monthly billing for devices that are LESS Than premium .. I would also like to know why each carrier has a different price for the Note 8 .. and how come we can't purchase outright instead?)

Magic appearing Moderator! Hey @Dj_Damjano ^_^
I do know that they are going to start mailing out pre-orders really early this time. I think some preference is being given to those that are involved in the Note 7 rebate. However, I do know that people could start getting their phones even as early as the 6th! Keep in mind that if you place the order after the 5th, they will prioritize those that put in the order before that date, but it might be sent out as early as the day after you order.
