    Awesome deal. I was able to get one for my S3. However, the only colors available are Orange, Lime Green and Pink. Delivery takes 6 to 8 weeks. No shipping charges. This literally is completely free.

    By the way, I had registered my S3 with Samsung before. The deal still worked, just used a different email address.

    Or you could just get a flip cover on eBay for anywhere from $4.99 to $8.99 and get a pack of 15 NFC Tags for $12-13.

    The cover are from China and they are cheap. Ive bought things from China and Hong Kong before. Hre is a link to one http://www.ebay.com/itm/PU-Leather-Flip-Case-Cover-For-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-III-GT-i9300-Screen-Protector-/330839852125?pt=PDA_Accessories&var=&hash=item4d0797845d

    So you would rather pay money for a knock-off product, than get the real thing for free?

    If your lucky enough to win but if not, those are OEM parts and they are cheap. Free shipping as well. Don't know how they make money on them that way but dont care.
    Things I've got from there are pretty decent quality. They are all made in China or Korea so I don't get your saying they are cheap knockoffs.
    Just saying you can get them cheap.

    Some of those "non-genuine" covers have fitment issues and lack NFC. Even some of the NFC enabled covers from ebay don't actually work.

    Just read the poor reviews around the internetz.

    If it isnt metal the NFC should work. I bought a couple covers from China and one was metal and i didnt expect the NFC to work and it didnt. The other has leather on the back and NFC worked fine. Not sure what your talking about but you have to know what your getting and what works with NFC And they fit just fine. Its $6, what do you have to lose?

    There are bigger batteries you can buy too but you have to make sure they are NFC enabled.

    I understand the skepticism but ive bought a decent handful of things from China & Hong Kong and they were fine. Hey im just trying to save you some money. Im one that doesnt think the covers we get from here that are $19-$29 are any better. Still made in China.

    Here is a site that is legit ive bought from and they have all kinds of stuff. http://www.eforchina.com/list/2442/Former-Shell---Back-Cover.htm

    Thanks for the heads up OP!

    Note II flip covers are still available. Just picked up an orange (they only had orange, mint, and pink left).

    Agreed. I've bought a bunch of cases from China/Hong Kong and they've been of similar quality to ones from the US/UK. Only downside is they take a few weeks to arrive.

    I've got a couple Nillkin cases coming in and I couldn't find that brand anywhere but in China/Hong Kong. I already have one and the quality is great.

    Just received my free flip cover and nfc tags. Thought it was supposed to take 6 - 8 weeks but they showed up a little after 2 weeks. Great job, Samsung!

    Still haven't gotten mine.

    I was left with orange, mint, and pink colors as choices. Went with the orange one. Maybe I should have gotten the pink. Haha..

    Got mine.

    Wow, the orange is kinda an ugly color. More like burnt orange. Should've gotten pink even though I'm a dude.
