Best Buy Offers Samsung 3D TV Promotion: Free Galaxy Tab 10.1

For those of you thinking of purchasing a 3D TV and also requiring a new tablet device this one is a no-brainer. Best Buy is running a promotion beginning tomorrow, August 21 through August 27, which will offer a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 on purchase of select 3D HDTV’s from Samsung.

It’s no secret that the Apple iPad is pretty dominant in the tablet market but the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a pretty sound device and Samsung also has a loyal TV customer base so why not kill two birds with one stone and check out the promotion at Best Buy from Sunday. It’s certainly one way for Samsung to bring its Galaxy Tab 10.1 some attention as the company is still embroiled with legal battles with Apple, which is restricting sales of the Galaxy Tab in some countries and leaving other Samsung products under threat.

The news comes to us from Eric Slivka over on MacRumors, sourced from Best Buy, and another part of the promotion offers free 3D starter kits including some 3D movies and also containing 2 pairs of 3D glasses. The promotion is the latest in the Best Buy Perfect Match Promise and Best Buy says, “This week only, Best Buy’s Perfect Match Promise offers customers a 16 GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the purchase a Samsung 46″ Class LED 1080p Smart 3D HDTV all for the low price of $1499.99 after savings. Customers can also step up to a 55″ Samsung TV (measured diagonally) with a 3D Starter Kit for only $1999.99 after savings.”

Over on Cnet, Christopher MacManus also reports on this Best Buy promotion and tells of a downloadable app for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which you can use to control your TV. The deal also offers a 3-year special finance along with free delivery. Will you be heading to Best Buy in the next week to take advantage of these deals? Let us know with your comments.
