Sprint Giving $50 Gift Card to Samsung Epic 4G buyers

In order to step up its Samsung campaign and push its Media Hub capabilities, Sprint is offering a free $50 gift card. Before you get too excited and start yelling “FREE ACCESSORIES!” you may wanna continue reading. Apparently, the gift card is only usable within Media Hub, and is only for movie rentals. Either way, free is free.

To qualify, you must purchase an Epic 4G between October 31st, 2010 and January 8th, 2011. I’ll also note that my source implied that the Tab would also be getting this sort of promotion. However, there’s no mention of it in the flyer. Purchases made before the promotion date don’t count. But, keep in mind, if it’s been less than 30 days since you bought an Epic, you can probably return it and re-buy it under the promotion dates. Once you do get the phone, a text message containing your promotion code will be sent to you.

Check out the fine print below…
