Samsung Delivers 3D TV Glasses to the Masses

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

If you'll remember back in April, Samsung let the world know about a little deal they'd be running in which with every purchase of one of their LED or plasma 3D HDTVs, you'd get two pairs of Active 3D glasses for free. That time has come, ladies and gentlemen, here come the glasses. For everyone who purchased a 2011 Samsung 3D TV from an authorized Samsung retailer between April 24th 2011 and June 25th 2011, it's time for you to grab your two free sets o' glasses.

This offer of course only works if you've not already gotten a couple pairs of glasses from the retailer via this promotion or a 3D Starter Kit promotion – for more information on how you can get your glasses, head on over to the site for collecting: If you're unaware of the total excellence that is to be had in the televisions this offer works with, read on. Furthermore, there are several pairs of glasses that you'll be able to purchase if you want more than two sets. Ranging from $50 to $150 depending on excellence, here they are:

Model Number / Description / Suggested Advertised Price

SSG-3100GB Battery-operated 3D Active glasses $49.99
