If you’re a frequent shopper of Best Buy, and had plans on picking up a brand new HDTV from the yellow tag retailer, then this weekend may be the perfect time to pony up the cash. The company has just announced that in conjunction with Samsung, you’ll be able to get your hands on a shiny new tablet for free, if you purchase an HDTV. Of course, there are rules to the engagement, and you can only pick from a specific bunch of TVs, but at least the offer is there at all.
As the press release reads, you’ll be able to get your hands on a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 16GB WiFi-only if you pick up certain HDTVs. If you’re looking to spend the least to get the free tablet, you’ll have to pick up one of Samsung’s 46-inch Class LED 1080p Smart 3D HDTV, which will run you $1,499.00. So if you’ve been wanting to pick up a 3D-enabled TV, then Samsung may be where you want to lean. The deal starts on August 21st, and will run for one week. Let us know if you pick one up, won’t you?
