Telus is offering shoppers who pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S4 a $50 credit if they wait ‘up to two weeks to receive’ the phone.
The carrier has described the handset as ‘so popular,’ it is trying to manage the restricted supply by making the credit offer to select shoppers.
Telus offers the Galaxy S4 on a 3-year contract for $199. The no contract price is $700.
Telus is currently taking pre-orders, and the delivery is expected on 27th April. The Galaxy S4 will be available at Telus brick and mortar stores on 3rd May.
However, shoppers opting for the $50 credit offer will be receiving the device by 10th May.

Thanks for pre-ordering the GALAXY S4 with TELUS. This device has been so popular that there’s a very limited quantity available across Canada and internationally. To help manage our restricted supply, we’re offering select pre-order customers a $50 bill credit if you’re willing to wait up to two weeks to receive your GALAXY S4.
What this means for you
If you decide to take this offer, we’ll add a $50 credit to your account after you receive your device. We will ship your GALAXY S4 by May 10th instead of Saturday, April 27th. If you choose not to take this offer, your GALAXY S4 will be shipped on Friday April 26.
Hurry now, limited time offer: You must accept this offer by 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday April 23, 2013.
Telus also announced plans last week to stock different colors of Galaxy S4 in future, apart from Black Mist and White Frost.
