Leave it up to Samsung to hold crazy promotions for its mirrorless cameras — at least in the UK. The company recently offered to give a NX1000 mirrorless camera to anyone named David Bailey; 142 David Baileys came forward to claim their camera. Now the camera maker is doing another unique promo, and this time it’s open to the general public: it’s giving away tablet computers with its mirrorless cameras.
Between now and January 9th, 2013, anyone in the UK who purchases a Samsung “Smart” NX mirrorless camera will be given a free 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 tablet computer.
There are currently three cameras you can purchase to receive the tablet: the NX20, NX210, and NX1000. The first two cost $1000 and $750, respectively, but the NX1000 only costs $500. The Galaxy Tab 2 retails for $250, so you’ll be getting quite a deal if you pick up the low-end model.
To take part in the promotion, you’ll need to buy the camera at retailers participating in the promo (there are quite a few). At certain brick-and-mortar stores you’ll receive the tablet at checkout, and the computer will also be included as a bundle when ordering online from sites like Amazon.
Sadly, there’s no word on whether this promo might be held in the United States or other countries around the world. For those of you in the UK, this is one deal that might make your holiday shopping a whole lot easier.
