These days, Samsung has a sweet problem as it struggles to meet the demand for its latest flagship device, Galaxy S4. The company expects to ship some 10 million units per month, causing problems in the distribution chain. Canada’s TELUS is affected as well and now the carrier is offering a $50 credit to customers who agree to wait for two weeks to get their Galaxy S4. Here’s an email they’re sending to those who pre-ordered Sammy’s super-phone:
Thanks for pre-ordering the GALAXY S4 with TELUS. This device has been so popular that there’s a very limited quantity available across Canada and internationally. To help manage our restricted supply, we’re offering select pre-order customers a $50 bill credit if you’re willing to wait up to two weeks to receive your GALAXY S4.
What this means for you
If you decide to take this offer, we’ll add a $50 credit to your account after you receive your device. We will ship your GALAXY S4 by May 10th instead of Saturday, April 27th. If you choose not to take this offer, your GALAXY S4 will be shipped on Friday April 26.
Hurry now, limited time offer: You must accept this offer by 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday April 23, 2013.
TELUS is offering the Galaxy S4 for $199 on a three-year contract or for $700 sans any strings attached.
