Escape reality this Father’s Day with help from @BestBuy and #GearVR
I adore my boys and my wife, but you know what? There are times when dads just need to escape reality and take a moment for myself (mom does, too).
Right now, my escape is usually to the back patio with a good book, any icy beverage and a "do not disturb" sign hung on the sliding glass door. That's about to change, though.
Daydreaming on the back patio won't ever go away for me, but it's about to get a whole lot more real thanks to Best Buy and the Samsung Gear VR.
What is the Samsung Gear VR?
I'm a tech junkie and I love new digital experiences. That's exactly what the new Samsung Gear VR provides that really sets it apart. It allows us to consume content in a whole different way that wasn't even possible just a few years ago. Your favorite content - videos, sounds, and games can now become your favorite virtual reality experiences.
The best part is that the Gear VR uses technology that's already in your hands - more specifically your Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, S6 or S6 Edge, Edge 6+ or Note 5 mobile phone. It's really cool - the phone just plugs right into the VR headset and turns into the display for the device. That's part of what keeps the device so affordable and user friendly.
What's the deal at Best Buy?
For a limited time, you can get an awesome deal on a Samsung Gear VR with the purchase of select Samsung mobile phones.
How good of a deal? Well, the Gear VR is free, actually. Oh, and Best Buy will also throw in $50 of virtual reality content with purchase, or lease, and activation of select Samsung Smartphones, too.
The offer is good June 5th through June 18th online or in Best Buy stores, which (hint, hint) is perfect timing for Father's Day and would really be an awesome gift to surprise dad with this year!
