Samsung has bundled plenty of free apps and subscriptions of premium services totalling more than $400 on the Galaxy S5. The list includes some extremely popular services like Dropbox, The Wall Street Journal, LinkedIn and Evernote. If you have just got yourself a shiny new Galaxy S5 and are wondering how to redeem all these apps and services for free, read below.

But first, its always good to know about all the apps, games and subscriptions that Samsung is giving away to Galaxy S5 owners for free. After all, you don’t want to miss out on any freebies. Do you?

  • Free 1TB of storage space on Bitcasa ($30)
  • 48GB of free storage space of Dropbox for 2 years ($100)
  • 3 months of premium Evernote subscription (15$)
  • 1-year Bloomberg Businessweek+ trial ($30)
  • 50GB of free storage space on Box for 6 months ($18)
  • 6 month free trial of Skimble workout trainer ($41.94)
  • 6 month trial subscription of The Wall Street Journal ($138)
  • 1 year premium subscription of RunKeeper ($19.99)
  • Free book on Kindle every month
  • 3 months LinkedIn Premium account ($75)
  • 6 months subscription of EasilyDo Pro ($30)
  • 6 months trial subscription of MayMyRun ($35.94)
  • 1 year of Lark subscription ($36)
  • Special offers while shopping via PayPal (up to $50)
  • In-game credits in Cut the Rope 2 ($15)
  • Blurb coupon to create your own professional photo book ($5)

As you can see, Samsung has taken its kitchen sink approach with the free goodies it is offering on the Galaxy S5 as well. Considering how popular and useful some of these services are, I am sure most people will not be complaining.

To redeem these apps and services, open Samsung Apps from the app drawer and select Galaxy Gifts in the category list. Here, you can find and download nearly all the apps and services mentioned above. Make sure to login with your username and password to start your subscription or redeem your free storage space in Evernote, Bitcasa and other similar services.


To redeem the 48GB of free storage space on Dropbox, you will need to sign in with your Dropbox account credentials in the pre-installed app on the S5. Keep in mind that the free storage space and services are only valid for one account for a one-time usage. This means that if you have already used another Galaxy S5 to get 3 months of premium Evernote membership or 48GB of storage space on Dropbox, you will not be able to redeem them again.
