With the Z Fold 3, several Canadian carriers are offering the Galaxy Buds 2, the Wireless Charger Duo and the S Pen for free. Carriers are also offering the Galaxy Buds 2 and Wireless Charger Duo for free with the Z Flip 3.

It’s worth noting that most Canadian carriers are selling the Z fold 3 and Z Flip 3 at an outright cost several hundred dollars above what Samsung charges. With this in mind, if you’re looking to buy either phone outright or even finance one of the foldables, Samsung is likely your best option.
