    I got an email from Samsung Promotions at 10:29 eastern this morning (9/30) with tracking #. FedEx says the FedEx label was created yesterday with no further status changes. I chose the charger and card.

    When I tracked the shipment yesterday, I also signed up for alerts on the FedEx website for all future activity for this shipment. Wake up this morning to an email from FedEx saying that my shipment has a schedule delivery update, and now shows Friday 10/6 by end of day. That's a bummer. I'm only working half day on Friday, so it'll probably come after I leave, and I won't have my new toys for the weekend.

    I got my charger and card today. 128Mb? I would say "cheapskates," but can't. I love the phone and I'm very happy to have the convertible charger. Plus there is a lot worse going on in the world today. So, your basic happy camper here...

    with all due respect, it was free. what is the point of complaining about something that was a gift? :thinking:

    I complain about everything too, and don't disagree with Redeye :D. At first, several people were getting 256gb cards, so if I get a 128 on Friday, I'll be disappointed too. Oh well.

    Like fake news, that was really a fake complaint. Note7 buyers, myself included, got 256 cards, so it was kind of a downgrade. But, as I said, I love the phone and any gift is great. The charging pad is super-nice. I have the previous Samsung wireless charger and the newer one is nice and soft and the phone can lay there instead of having to be stood up. I would have been happy with just the charger; free is free. Thanks.

    I registered for my gift on September 5th, and it physically shipped on October 1st. Should be delivered tomorrow, so almost a month.

    I love the way you "complain". It made me smile. Such a wonderful positive attitude.

    I got mine today. The charger and 128GB card. I bought 2 Blue Note 8s with my carrier and registered for the promotion on the 16th. My brother received his yesterday. So can't complain on the turn around time (they said 6-8 weeks and I got it in 2 and 1/2 weeks). So very happy. :D

    Speaking of complaining about free stuff, yes, I only got a 128 card as well, and I feel the charging stand is pretty cheap. It's pretty cool when laying flat, but when you convert it to stand up, the platform is very thin and flimsy feeling and I often am paranoid that my phone will just fall right off. Oh well, still using it, just glad I didn't have to pay for it! :D:D

    I have two of the convertible stands and dont feel that concern. I DO have the phone in an alcantara case which does provide some “grip” so to speak.
