Samsung, India’s biggest consumer electronics and smartphones brand, is launching three new innovative programs on its Online Store – Samsung.com, with exciting offers that will enhance shopping experience for consumers who buy their favourite Samsung devices online. The three innovative platforms: Samsung Referral Program, Samsung Student Program and Samsung Shop 20K Advantage, will reward Samsung customers and also enhance the value proposition for Gen Z and millennial consumers, including students, when they shop online from Samsung.com.
Samsung Referral Program (Samsung First)
Samsung has a large consumer base in India and enjoys great love from its device users. To give an opportunity to existing Samsung consumers to give the gift of great technology to their friends and family members, Samsung has launched a unique Referral Program. Samsung customers (referrer) can help their friends and family get exciting rewards (up to 8% off) on purchase of a range of premium mobile and consumer electronics products through Samsung.com. The referrer (Samsung customers recommending the purchase) will also receive benefits in the form of Samsung.com vouchers up to INR 1500 per successful transaction completed by their friends. Samsung Referral Program is applicable on 15+ devices, which include smartphones, tablets and wearables.
Samsung Student Program (India First)
Samsung is the preferred choice of Gen Z and young millennials. These young consumers, especially students, need devices, which are exciting, packed with features, reliable and which they can trust for their data, especially with the world going digital. The Samsung Student Program is a first-of-its-kind online student-specific Storefront on Samsung.com which enables the student community to get easy access to a special catalogue of products consisting of a wide range of smartphones, tablets, wearable and accessories. The products listed in the catalogue will be available at a special price and come with value added services such as complimentary insurance, easy exchange and convenient EMI options. Students can access the online Storefront through their official college email id or through validation by an authorized student credentials verification agency.
