If you're slap bang in the middle of the Venn diagram of people buying a new smartphone and people looking to get their groove on at a gig or music festival this summer, then this one's for you. Samsung has clubbed together with selected mobile phone retailers to offer a free pair of event tickets with Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and Note 8 deals until February 18.
The Unbox Your Tickets promotion is on a 'while stocks last' basis, although Samsung says that there are 86,397 rewards in total to be claimed. The available gigs include Katy Perry, Little Mix, Arcade Fire, Elbow and Steps, as well as festivals in the UK and abroad such as BST in London, Forbidden Fruit in Dublin, Castle Concerts in Edinurgh and Rock En Seine in Paris. Take a look at the full list – together with Samsung's terms and conditions – and how many tickets are allocated for each show.
To qualify, you have to purchase a new Galaxy S8, S8+ or Note from any of the following participating retailers:
- Carphone Warehouse
- Mobile Phones Direct
- John Lewis
- Amazon UK
- Tesco Mobile
- Curry's PC World
- Virgin Mobile
- BT Mobile
The promotion also includes the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 tablet, which TechRadar described as "the best Android tablet to date" when we reviewed it on its release last year.
How to 'Unbox Your Tckets'
There are 33 paragraphs of Samsung's terms and conditions about the promotion and how to make your claim – and we ain't going to list them all.
Very basically, you need to purchase your new Samsung Galaxy device any time from now until midnight on February 18. Once you've done that, you have to register it via the Samsung Members App. From there you'll be able to claim your tickets, which you must do before the end of February 25.
Ok, so it's a tad convoluted. But when you're yelling lyrics back to your favourite artist in the flesh later in the year, we don't suppose you'll much care.
