How do I redeem a coupon in the Galaxy Apps store?

A coupon allows you to download a single app for free for a limited time from the Galaxy Apps store. It is issued by the seller of the app directly to you and is a unique code made up of 16 alphanumeric characters. The coupon can only be used one time in the Galaxy Apps store; it cannot be used in Google Play Store or Apple's App Store.

How to redeem a coupon on a Samsung phone

The following example shows a Galaxy S8 running Android 8.0.0. The screens you see may vary depending on the type of app you are downloading, the type of phone you are using, and the version of your OS.

In order to redeem a coupon, you must have:

  • a Samsung account.

  • a credit card registered in your Samsung account. See How do I register a credit card in my Samsung account? for details about adding your credit card information.

    Note: Even if the coupon allows you to download the app for free, you are required to have a credit card registered in order to obtain the app. After you download the app, you may delete your credit card information.

  1. Launch the Galaxy Apps store app, locate and select the app for which you have a coupon, then tap the blue bar that shows the purchase price.

     

    If the app requires access to information on the phone, if you are not logged in to your Samsung account, and/or if you have purchase protection enabled, you will be prompted for additional information.
  2. In the Samsung Billing screen, locate the Discount section and tap Add.
  3. Enter the coupon code and tap Add (characters are not case-sensitive).

     

    Note: After adding the coupon, if you exit the billing process before purchasing the app for any reason (for example, you need to register a credit card), your coupon remains registered in your Samsung account until it expires. You can complete the purchase of the app by redeeming the registered coupon before it expires. See How to redeem a registered coupon on a Samsung phone for more information.
  4. Verify that the coupon has been added and the payment amount is 0 (zero). Then, tap BUY.
  5. Tap OK to use the coupon.

     

    If you have purchase protection enabled, you will be prompted to keep it enabled.
