    If you buy directly from Samsung in the USA at least you the gifts the same time you get the phone, If you bought from your Carrier it doesn't matter what the carrier told you, register with Samsung AFTER you have the phone in-hand and you can choose your gifts, you'll need the Phone's Serial Number AND MAC address, it will take about a month to get the gifts, I haven't heard of any carrier handing out the gifts themselves as this is actual a Samsung PROMO although some carriers act like it's their deal :)

    My confirmation email just shows my Gear360 as a preorder and a ship date for it along with my Note8. But then, as mentioned above, I ordered from Samsung direct.

    I'm just curious about which of the freebies--either the camera or the wireless charger and SD card--most people are getting with their Note 8. I still haven't decided.

    My wife has her 256 GB SD card from last year along with the two micro C charger cables that came with the note 7

    I went with the Gear 360... I already have one, but I'll sell it and keep the new one.

    I took the charger and the SD Card. I have a GoPro so the Gear 360 would be something else to schlep along when traveling. I thought about picking it up to sell but was intrigued by the wireless charger. We will see how it works out.

    FWIW

    Update- so when I had the Shop Samsung app on my S7e, it said I didn't have any active promotions (or something similar to that). When I loaded the app on the Note8 yesterday, I signed in, and it immediately took me to the page to register for the gifts. Pretty quick and simple, entered my name and address, selected from a dropdown box on where I bought the phone, took a pic of the receipt, and hit submit. It wasn't even 30 seconds, I got an email saying I was approved, and my gifts should ship the week of 09/25. Too cool!

    AWESOME! Remember to go into Galaxy Apps... there are a lot of good apps in there for new owners. I discovered ArtRage, which allows you to draw and paint with the S Pen. It has some surprisingly powerful features: and the harder you press, the heavier the result. Just like real life!

    Open Galaxy Apps, select Exclusives, go all the way to the bottom to Galaxy Gifts, VIEW ALL, and it should be #8. If not, it's in there somewhere. Autodesk Sketchbook is #5 and it WAS a great drawing app... but apparently it's abandonware and hasn't been updated in over a year. Art Rage is cutting edge, and their customer service team is fast to respond to questions.

    Weird, still no dice. What version of Galaxy Apps are you running? Mine says 4.2.12.42 (which is up to date as far as my phone says). I don't even see "Galaxy Gifts" and trying to search "ArtRage" or "Art Rage" all I get are dorky results LOL.

    I did see that they have a free version of Art Rage. I downloaded it but haven't opened it yet. I did however play around with PenUp quite a bit last night. Funny, this is my 6th different note phone, and I've never dabbled with PenUp till now. Seems pretty awesome!

    I got the Gear VR (Note 8) and the Gear 360 - everything came with the phone. EXCEPT the Alcantara case, which is a separate order. Apparently they're not shipping yet... but Samsung assured me that I should have it by the 14th.

    So you got your gifts WITH the phone? Guess that's the benefit of buying directly from Sammy huh? We have to buy ours directly from VZW in order to keep our contracts and company discount structure.

    Last year with the Note7 I got the 256gb SD card, this year with the Note 8 I ended up getting the 128gb SD card and Charger, only because I wanted the charger. Didn't think I'd have much use for the 360 camera. I have last year's model of Samsung's fast charge wireless charger at my desk at work, so my plan is to take the new charger home for my night stand as the one I have is a VZW model I got back in the day when I had the Moto Droid Turbo. It does the trick, but it's old, and doesn't do fast charge.

    Probably won't even use the 128gb card, but it's always nice to have extra space somewhere if needed.

    Just for shiggles, this was seen on your Note5, correct? Do you still see it on your Note8, or do you now get the same screen as I did?
