Televisions and smart phones are essential technology these days, and no one does both better than Samsung. Their QLED 4K TVs deliver your home entertainment with brilliant real-life clarity. Their Galaxy S9 smart phones offer everything you’d expect in a premium phone, plus the most dazzling photos possible on a cellular device. These are the prizes Best Buy and Samsung are giving away in this contest so enter below for your opportunity to take home some essential tech from Samsung.

Samsung televisions are essential tech for the home

Televisions are a gathering place where you, your family, and your friends can gather to enjoy the latest block buster movie, or share in the excitement of a long-anticipated sports event. Samsung televisions make these, and much, much more, come alive. Just imagine reliving your favourite home movies on the 65 inch Q6F QLED television that we are giving away in this contest.

We recently sent one of these televisions to Erin, Editor for Home Theatre on the Best Buy blog, for an honest review. She spent a couple weeks with this Samsung television in her home and had a lot of nice things to say about it in her review. You’ll understand why she loved this television after watching her video review:

Now you tell me: is this television the next essential tech you need in your home?

Samsung Galaxy S9 smart phones are essential for everywhere you go

No one wants to be without a smart phone. We use them for so many different things. Communication, of course, in all of its forms: email, social media, telephone, video phone, etc. They are also our daily little helper devices, waking us in the morning, keeping track of our appointments, holding our lists, reminders, and notes and directing us through traffic or toward a meeting in an unfamiliar part of town. The Samsung Galaxy S9 that we are giving away in this contest does all of those things, but if you win you’ll definitely be telling everyone about its camera.

The S9 is a premium smart phone, a standout, that you will want to tell others about. After all, what’s the point of having the best if you can’t let your friends and family know how good it is. The best way to do that is through the photos you take with this phone.

We asked blogger Ted Kritsonis to test this phone and write an honest review. As you’ll read in his article, this phone allows you to get amazing photos using “pro” mode, as well as capture fun and interesting slow motion video!

You can get both of these technologies at your local Best Buy. However, you wouldn’t want to miss out on a chance to win them: someone in Canada will take home the Samsung TV prize; someone will take home the Galaxy S9 prize. Here’s how to enter.


Entering this contest is easy, but you can only enter once. Think about which of the two amazing Samsung devices mentioned above are more essential to your life. Is it the TV or the smart phone? In a comment below, tell us specifically what feature makes either the Samsung Q6F television or the Galaxy S9 smart phone your essential tech choice.


At the end of the contest we will randomly draw 2 winners from all eligible entries. One winner will receive a 65 inch Samsung Q6F 4K television, and the other winner will receive a Galaxy S9 Titanium smart phone.

This contest runs from June 29th until July 16th.

Remember you can only enter once for a chance to win one of these amazing Samsung prizes. However, you should tell everyone you know to enter too. Imaging how great it would be if you and one of your family or friends both one! It would be rare, but it can only happen if you spread the word.

Good Luck.

  4. winning the smart phone would be more essential to my life. The TV is great mind you… but my phone goes with me everywhere and serves so many purposes, it really is like an electronic swiss army knife

  5. My current phone is almost four years old and it’s time for an upgrade! Aside from keeping me connected at all times, the biggest deciding factor when I’m shopping for a new smartphone is its camera. I’m someone who loves using her smartphone to snap photos on the go. As such, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is my essential tech choice because its camera offers advanced features and employs DSLR technology so I can trust it to capture and deliver pro-quality images under any conditions!

  6. OMG I’m a huge Android fan I’ve had a Android for years and years and would never go back to anything else I love the new S9. I would also enjoy to win a new TV since my TV is probably 15 years old and if you’re going to go beg you might as well go really big and that’s pretty big TV so can’t complain

  7. It would be awesome to win the Samsung QLED TV. The SmartThings with Bixby is definitely one of the best features. The ability to control all compatible devices with the TV via smartThings would be awesome.

  8. I would love to win the Samsung QLED TV, The SmartThings with Bixby is definitely one of the best features and it has the ability to connect\control all compatible devices through the TV.

  9. I don’t mind winning either one, but would prefer to win the 4K TV than the phone since I already got and use the S9 (pre-ordered and was the first in line to pick up from the retail store!). My current TV is small so I can barely read any words on the screen when I’m playing PS4/PS3. Always been a big supporter of Samsung – although sometimes they can be pricey but the quality is top notch. Got Samsung monitor, cellphone, TV, appliances, and so on, and they last forever (except for the cellphone, my last one was the Galaxy S4, it did last for 4 years though). If I do win the S9 though, I’d like to gift it to my partner; he always uses an old old phone almost never upgrades, but I feel like he needs a better/faster phone for work purpose.

  10. Definitely the Samsung 65 inch Q6F QLED television , the 4K picture would be a great improvement of my old model tv

  11. The Samsung 65 inch Q6F QLED television for the resolution and to replace my 20 inch tv

  12. The Samsung Q6F QLED would be more essential to our life, as our 2009 Samsung 40″ LCD is kinda out-dated although still in good shape for its age. The Smart feature would help and also the great picture quality that comes with QLED.

  13. The Q HDR Elite (High Dynamic Range) technology on Samsung 65″ 4K UHD HDR QLED Tizen Smart TV is what I’m excited for 🙂

  14. Features like QLED and a 4K picture makes the Samsung Q6F television my essential tech compared to Galaxy S9. With all the high quality production TV shows and movies coming from Hollywood these days, you need the best to truly reproduce the experience.

    Thanks for the great contest idea.

  15. the main feature of the Samsung S9 which pulls me over towards the phone is the smoothness of the phone which took many years for the Samsung to fix the issue since they have their own UI over the stock Android and they always force other companies to take the hardware level to the another higher level

  16. The Samsung 65 inch Q6F QLED television would be more essential to my life to replace 10+-year-old 40″ LCD tv from Best Buy.
    Thanks for the great chance Best Buy.

  17. The Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone because of the great camera. My old phone is dying so this would be great to win.
