The advertisment states I will get $150 off and get a choice of a 360 camera or memory card/charger.
I completed my preorder, but the discount hasn't been applied and I am not sure when I get to choose the bonus items.
Were there fine print I wasn't aware of or is this a mail in rebate sort of thing. Do I have to take this up with Samsung after I receive my item or does Best Buy honor it?
Thank you! Your stores are great.

I think the promotion is received by mail from Samsung. Check "details" at bottom of offer. I'm not sure about the $150, either, though. They say the total is "up to $379". I think the charger and SD card are probably worth the $129, but I'm not sure where the $150 comes from. I'm going to pre-order, either way, as I'm looking forward to the Note 8, but it will be nice to score the discount!
