Samsung Device Owners: 10 Free VSCO Cam Presets

If you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet, one of the Samsung Owners Hub offers is ten free presets for the VSCO Cam photo app. I don’t know if every Samsung (Galaxy) device is eligible or some of them or if this depends on registration status and such. Samsung works in mysterious ways :) The offer is available through the Samsung+ app on Google Play which is the new name for the Samsung Owner’s Hub. Once you install that app, go to the Promotions tab, and page down until you see the VSCO Cam offer. There is a little link thing to press in a circle on the left side (see screenshot below) to get you to VSCO Cam. There’s also an offer that gets you two years of an extra 100TB of Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage there.

samsung_vsco_cam_free_presets_offer

PS1: I don’t know if these offers are stackable with the Galaxy Perks.

PS2: by the time you read this, it will probably be renamed to Galaxy Owners Plus Hub, or Milk Galaxy Apps or Galaxy Prime Alpha App Store 😉
