All I had to do was register my S5 to my existing account. I got an email with the discount code within a day. As another poster mentioned, it may be open only to US residents.

Qi wireless charging gear for the S5 seems to be difficult to find in Australia for some reason. And where you can find it, it's hideously overpriced. Harvey Norman (sort of a Best Buy-type store) sell the Samsung charging pad for A$74 (US$65) and the S View charging cover for A$89 (US$78). No way.

I bought the genuine charging back (just the back, not the S View cover) because I was afraid of compromising the waterproofing by putting an aftermarket coil inside the stock back. The cheapest I found was on

As for charging pads, I picked up a couple off eBay from China. They look a bit like hockey pucks and you can get them about five bucks a pop, and they do the job nicely. One sits on top of my computer and the other is plugged into the OEM charger by my bed. I don't have any problems positioning the phone on top - at least, not with the OEM charging back.

I still don't trust that those cards, no matter how thin, don't affect the waterproof seal.
