Hey @Chris74, Shirley helps coordinate the promotions that we offer on Samsung Members so please be assured that the email is "real". I've actually put you on the list of members to contact for gifts for this round and passed it to her. And to clear up some confusion - yes, a xxx@partner.samsung.com is what some of our emails look like, which is usually for subsidiaries, contractors, etc. Additionally, not all Samsung employees have full access to the information listed on your profile, hence the need to ask for an address and phone number. While I know it's not the most efficient method, we're working to improve that soon!
