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.

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:

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

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.
