After unveiling the first ad for its Galaxy S5 flagship last, and briefly breaking Twitter with a selfie, Samsung has just announced a suite of premium app deals for Galaxy S5 customers.  The app suite will come bundled for free with Galaxy S5 purchases and includes a variety of premium services, subscriptions, and apps for free.

Evernote, Bitcasa, and LinkedIn are all offering 3 months of their premium services for free to Galaxy S5 customers. Bloomberg is offering a free yearlong subscription to Businessweek, while the Wall Street Journal is giving customers a 6 month subscription for free. Previous Galaxy devices offered free DropBox storage this time around, however, users will get 50GB of storage on Box for 6 months.

The full breakdown of offerings is below:

  • Run Keeper – 1 year free premium service ($20 value)
  • Lark – 1 year premium service ($36 value)
  • Skimble – 6 months free premium service ($42 value)
  • Map My Fitness – 6 months free premium service ($36 value)
  • Wall Street Journal – Free 6 month subscription to Wall Street Journal ($160 value)
  • Bloomberg Businessweek + – Free Subscription: 12 Months ($30 value)
  • PayPal – Enjoy special offers (totaling $50 or more in value) from your favorite stores when you pay with PayPal
  • LinkedIn – Free LinkedIn Premium account for 3 months ($75 value)
  • EasilyDo Pro – Free app purchase ($5 value)
  • Blurb – Free $5 Coupon ($5 value)
  • Cut the Rope 2 – $10 in-game credits ($10 value)
  • Flick Dat – Free download of $2 paid app ($2 value)
  • Box – Free 50 GB for 6 months ($60 value)
  • Bitcasa – Free Premium Service: 1TB storage for 3 months ($30 value)
  • Evernote – Free Premium Service for 3 months ($15 value)

All of these deals put together total out to more than $500 in savings, which is pretty impressive and certainly makes the Galaxy S5 slightly more enticing.

  1. Finally find out how to get free 50gb Dropbox for next 2 years.

    Lol, what a farce! Include a bunch of bloatware most people wouldn’t pay for anyway, hoping that they might keep one or two afterwards and pay a monthly subscription. A couple of these are $25-$30 per month…FOR AN APP!!! Epic FAIL!

  3. yes they are giving you $500 worth of Goodies amd it going to cost you all your internal memory out of the box SMH

  4. Haha, so it comes with a bunch of free trials. I don’t see this “$500 in free gifts” pulling in too many people who wouldn’t have bought it otherwise.

  5. I’m guessing Samsung is being paid by some of these companies. For example, Box is hoping that users will want to keep their 50GB after 6 months and start paying.
