I love how the small print says the promotion goes till Feb 11th yet they are "sold out" before the end of the 1st day. What did they give away 10 flip covers? Thanks for nothing Samsung!

Actually, they gave away 12,100. Dang Facebook trolls grabbing up everything!

I ended up getting the orange case. The tags are very helpful when it comes to switching to night time mode and everything

For anyone wondering the flip cover is really thin but doesn't give much protection and taking pictures can be a little strange. I ended up trading mine out for something a little thicker, I was too worried about the drop.

Not worth the cost unless they are still free.

Did those who were successful in getting flip covers and tectiles receive a confirmation email for the "care package"? I just used the coupon code to buy the charger and battery combo and noticed I had never received a confirmation for the free gifts. If I'm not getting it I'll be support annoyed,I even got the blue flip cover.

Looks ok. I still have not received mine yet. I never got a confirmation email. I do remember when ordering it it said that it would take about six to eight weeks before I received it.

I never got a single email except the first one with the link to register to get the package. I registered around 6pm on Dec 28 and the package only had to travel from Jersey to New York, if that helps people get a sense of when they may get theirs.

All I wanted was the Tiles, and and at the very least the 50% off code.. Never got neither, and I was magically online at the right time and did everything like 10 minutes after being announced.

I will be getting the green one. I wanted the blue one but it was gone. I almost went with orange one. I don't think the green one will look any better than the orange. lol

Don't throw out the big welcome card! The tectile on it is writable, it is exactly the same as the other five.

The TecTile app is lackluster. NFC task launcher has many more options, even Samsung specific ones like power saving mode that the tectiles app does not have. I'm going to use one together with llama to try and make a really low battery drain mode. Llama can trigger events from detecting a nfc, it doesn't actually read anything from the card, similar to NFC retag

Finally got my lime green case on Friday. It looks strange on a blue phone, but it works. I don't plan on using it. But I am thinking of getting a blue flip cover now.
