Until now, pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy S10 or the Galaxy S10 Plus would bring you a pair of free Galaxy Buds. However, it seems that Samsung has exhausted its free wireless headphones for pre-orders.
Instead of Galaxy Buds, Samsung now offers a $ 130 e-certificate that can be used to "select products" on the Samsung website and the Samsung Shop app. Samsung has not specified what these products are, but we assume that you can spend 130 USD on accessories for your Galaxy S10 or Galaxy S10 Plus. You could probably also buy the Galaxy Buds when they go on sale on March 8th.
This is not entirely unprecedented – the promotional details indicated that the free Galaxy Buds were available "until stocks last". This means that Samsung has probably assigned a number of its wireless headsets to the Galaxy S10 pre-orders and that these supplies have been exhausted.
Anyway, the news does not affect those who read the Galaxy S10e. Pre-orders for this phone did not include a free game of Galaxy Buds. As a result, new pre-orders do not include the $ 130 electronic certificate. For these people, they can check out our list of the best available wireless headphones that are not Apple AirPods.
On a related note, some shipping dates for the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus were exceeded after their launch on March 8. The Prism White Galaxy S10 Plus with 128GB of storage, for example, will be available from March 22nd. Therefore, do not be surprised if your Galaxy S10 pre-order does not arrive at your door on launch day.
