Samsung really wants you to buy a Galaxy S5.  In order to make their new smartphone tempting for consumers like myself who put out a few hundred bucks to buy a Galaxy S4 a year ago, they’re throwing in some freebies to sweeten the deal.

They’re including free long-term subscription to premium apps and services.

Among the services they hope will tempt to you pay  for a new smartphone are fitness, financial, productivity and gaming apps.


Because of the ability of the G S5 to monitor your heart rate, fitness apps are considered a big draw.

  • 1 year of free premium service to RunKeeper, an app that promises to become a personal trainer in your pocket. ($20 value)
  • 1 year of free premium service to Lark, a personalized wellness assistance that uses the GS5’s low power sensors to track your health. ($36 value)
  • 6 months of free premium service to Skimble, which offers 1000’s of multimedia workouts ($42 value)
  • 6 months of free premium service to Map My Fitness, an app designed for walkers, runners and joggers. ($36 value)


  • 6 month free subscription to the Wall Street Journal app. ($160 value)
  • 1 year subscription to Bloomberg Business Week + ($30 value)
  • $50 worth of special offers for PayPal users


  • Free EasilyDo Pro App ($5 value)
  • $5 coupon towards Blurb – a publisher of mobile books
  • Free Flick Dat App ($2 value)
  • 50 GB for 6 months of Box cloud storage ($60 value)
  • 1 TB of Bitcasa storage for 3 months ($30 value)
  • 3 months of free premium Evernote service

Plus if you feel like a little gaming, $10 worth of in-game credits for Cut the Rope 2.

Among other features of the phone are an improved camera, promises of a faster WiFi connection and a fingerprint scanner for security. The G S5 will go on sale in April.
