Samsung launched the brand new Galaxy Buds which are the spiritual successors to the Gear IconX. The Galaxy Buds offer a truly wireless audio listening experience and are a great alternative to Apple’s AirPods.
The Galaxy Buds are also cheaper than Apple’s offering which is why they are a great pair of truly wireless earphones. Samsung has been steadily launching products aimed at Apple’s offerings and the Galaxy S10e is one example as well.
If you’re wondering how to pre-order the Galaxy Buds, then we’re here to address the question. So without much further ado, let’s check out whether or not you would be able to pre-order the Galaxy Buds in the U.S.
Galaxy Buds Availability
Unfortunately, the Galaxy Buds aren’t available for pre-order in the U.S as of now.
Samsung was offering the Galaxy Buds with the pre-order of the Galaxy S10 devices; however, according to some sources, the South Korean Giant was running out of free Galaxy Buds to offer along with the S10 sets.
The South Korean Giant instead is offering $130 credit/off on the purchase of the Galaxy S10 devices.
An alternate way to buy
There’s always a few alternative methods to try out such as importing the Galaxy Buds from Amazon UK; however, this brings along the addition of customs duty or you might have to pay a higher price.
If you’re comfortable with paying a few extra dollars to be one of the first to receive the Galaxy Buds in the U.S, then go right ahead.
However, if you want to save some cash and aren’t in a hurry to get a hold of the Galaxy Buds, it’s good to sit tight for now.
What to do?
Wait, for now.
Samsung would most probably have enough stock for the Galaxy Buds within a month in the U.S to put the new wireless earphones setup on order.
Which is why the best option is to wait and see when the Galaxy Buds become available.
How to claim the free Galaxy Buds offer
Even though you can’t pre-order the Galaxy Buds, you can definitely claim the free Galaxy Buds offer in case you’ve pre-ordered the Galaxy S10 or the Galaxy S10 Plus.
The offer is only valid for a limited time hence you’d have to be quick to claim the offer and get your free Galaxy Buds. To know more about the free Galaxy Buds offer and how to claim it, we’d suggest checking out our detailed guide by clicking this link.
Unfortunately, the offer isn’t applicable for those who have pre-ordered the Galaxy S10e.
