Disappointed that AT&T didn't include Gear VR for Galaxy S8/S8+ pre-orders

While others are doing it, AT&T chose not to include the Gear VR for Galaxy S8/S8+ pre-orders.  I mean, come on!  It's not as if you were buying a $400.00 smartphone (what!? $400.00 for a smartphone!?).  The Samsung Galaxy S8+ that I pre-ordered and received yesterday cost me $849.00.  AT&T should have thrown in the Gear VR.

 

I know what's going to happen.  In 6 months, or perhaps less, they will run a promotion to attract customers from other providers and this time it will include a Galaxy S8/S8+ and a Gear VR.  They do it all the time.  What about "attracting" existing customers?  When are you guys going to take care of YOUR customers?

 

For this, I am very disappointed.

You can register on the Samsung promotions page with your receipt and device ID and you get the free VR.

For others who are not as dumb as I am but who just don't know that if you register your phone with Samsung you can get a free Gear VR, here is the link to where you can do it:

This year is too young to tell.  All preordered S8 series phone will get the Gear VR if you are not as dumb as I was and somehow figure out that you have to go to a particular Samsung page to register your phone and then you'll get a free Gear VR.  Nowhere in the package sent by AT&T does it say anything about a Gear VR.

This is a manufacturer promotion, not a carrier one. Same deal last year. Submit info to Samsung for the promotional items.

Since the phone does not have a street date till the 21st the promo site is not fully working.
