Samsung makes sure each of its 2011 3DTVs have two pairs of 3D glasses to match

If you picked up one of Samsung's 3D-capable TVs this year then the company wants to make sure you're equipped to actually view some 3D action like the currently ongoing NBA Playoffs, a bullriding reality show or whatever you're into. To that end, any customers that didn't find themselves with two pairs of (now cheaper to buy) 3D glasses due to a pack-in deal or starter kit of some type when purchasing a new TV between April 24th and June 25th should go to the official website to get their two free pairs of active shutter glasses. The promotion ends June 25th but according to the press release there will be details on another one released some time before then. Grab your receipt and hit the source link or just check out the details in the press release after the break.
