Samsung is one of the largest electronic retailers not only in the United States but around the world. Many consumers know the company best for its lineup of televisions and mobile phones, but it makes just about any kind of consumer electronic device. It is possible to purchase these products from most electronic retailers both online and through a brick and mortar store. However, if you regularly purchase Samsung goods, you might want to purchase directly through the Samsung website. When you do this, you will need to create a Samsung account login.
Samsung Company Profile
Before you create and use the Samsung account login, you may want to look deeper into the company to see what it offers and what you can receive from the business. The company is one of the oldest electronic retailers in production anywhere in the world, which helps add to the overall interest of the company.
Lee Byung-chul created the company of Samsung Sanghoe in 1938 outside the city of Daegu in South Korea. However, the company originally did not retail electronic devices. As the Byung-chul family owned a considerable amount of land at the time, Lee sold noodles, local groceries, and dried fish. Following the conclusion of the Second World War, Lee moved the company headquarters out to Seoul in 1947, although the company had to leave Seoul at the start of the Korean War.
Over the next several years, Samsung expanded its product base to include the production of sugar and selling wool. In fact, during the 1950s, the company sold just about anything you could think of, including securities and insurance. It wasn't until the 1960s that Samsung started to retail electronic devices.
For the first several years in the electronics industry, the company produced mostly the inner workings of electronic devices such as semiconductors, although by the late 1960s the company had started to retail its own black and white televisions.
Further Push into Electronics
In 1987, Lee Byung-Chul died, which resulted in the splitting of the company. This splitting helped separate the company based on the services it offered or parts it manufactured. The Shinsegae group became the discount and department store branch, the CJ Corporation became a food and pharmaceutics company, and the Hansol company became focused on tourism, household interiors, and paper products (although it does sell some electronic devices). This splitting up is what allowed the Samsung division to focus all its efforts on the development and creation of new global technologies.
Samsung still produces numerous internal components for electronic devices. In fact, the Apple iPhone is predominately constructed of Samsung electronics. Samsung is the only manufacturer that produces the kind of OLED displays, DRAM chips, and NAND flash technology that Apple can use. Due to this, Samsung actually makes more money per iPhone sale than it does per Galaxy S sale (although Apple does use LG for its Watch).
Products, Services, & More
While Samsung produces many products, many of these products are limited to manufacturing and professional use. In terms of retail products designed for consumers, most of these devices are limited to smaller electronics and a few appliances.

You are likely most familiar with the Samsung lineup of smartphones, even if you do not own one yourself. The most popular phones include the Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy Note phones.
There is a rather wide selection of Galaxy phones. Some are designed as prepaid phones while others are crafted for specific purposes such as phones with rugged designs for active users, or phones with larger lenses for when you want a more powerful camera (although these are often not as widely available outside of the website). For example, there is the Galaxy J3, which is a prepaid phone that can be used on just about any network.
Home Theater Entertainment
If you're looking to improve your home entertainment experience, just about anything you might need is offered through Samsung. This doesn't just stop at HD and Ultra HD 4K televisions. You can purchase a home audio theater system, giving you a complete surround sound experience just as good, if not better, than the experience you receive at the movie theater.
You can also purchase a soundbar, which is a singular speaker that runs the length of a television screen. It provides an improved audio experience over what a TV speaker can provide although now to the same full-room surrounding experience as the surround sound system. Some of these soundbars come with smart features, so if you use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant you can communicate with the speakers via voice.
Beyond this, you'll find 4K Blu-ray players and a handful of other devices you may want to take advantage of and integrate into your system.
Samsung Account Login & Online Resources
If you purchase a good number of Samsung products, you may want to skip buying the products from a third-party retailer and instead buy the products directly from Samsung. Chances are you won't pay any less for the product (even though you're cutting out the middleman). However, you can create an account with Samsung, which gives you reward points. You can save these reward points up and then use the points to reduce the price of future purchases.
When you create an account, you'll also have instant access to all your retail information, should you need replacement parts, want troubleshooting assistance, or need to make a warranty claim. You will need to use the Samsung account login for this though. Thankfully, it is a straightforward and easy process, so you shouldn't have any issue opening up such an account.
Creating a Samsung Account
In order to use the Samsung account login, you'll need to head over to the Samsung.com website. Once here you'll want to click the little figure icon in the upper right corner of the screen (it's directly to the left of the search magnifying glass). This brings up the Samsung account login option if you already have an account.
As you do not have an account yet, you will want to create one. To do this click on the "Don't Have An Account?" option in the lower-left of this new window. The window will now change and you'll be able to enter your desired account information.
There are a few options available to you when creating an account. You can choose the "Sign Up With Facebook" or "Sign Up With Google" if you want most of your information to be easily inputted for you (this also helps with signing back into your account as you'll just use your Google or Facebook credentials). If you don't want to use either, you can create a standard account (there is no difference in the services you receive) by typing in your name, email address, zip code, date of birth, password, and phone number.
You can also check off if you want to receive information on special offers or updates on the latest Samsung products. You can also check off a "Customization Services" option. This option allows Samsung to monitor what you interact with on the website and then alter the sales and information it provides you. You'll then need to check off the "I'm not a robot" privacy option and click "Create Your Account."
Once you finish with the Samsung account login, you'll then want to head over to your email account and open the email sent from Samsung. Click on the link within the email to activate your account.

Now, when you want to make a purchase of a Samsung product, you will want to head over to the Samsung account login page, click the figure icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and then type in your account information. If you selected to create an account with Facebook or Google, you'll just need to click the "Sign In With Facebook" or "Sign In With Google" option and you'll be automatically signed in.
Once you have finished with this process, you can go shopping as you would. If you shop with the website frequently, you may want to consider saving your payment information here. This way, you won't be forced to input your shipping and billing information every single time you make a purchase. When you have finished with the purchase, all of your account information will be updated and you'll now have the new product you bought saved and stored on file.
Samsung is one of the most recognized electronic companies in the world. It produces internal elements for several consumer-grade devices, so even if you don't have an actual Samsung product, chances are the device you do have is using Samsung elements. If you regularly buy Samsung products, you may want to consider buying everything directly from Samsung. This will help expedite the shipping process and give you access to the latest updates and products from the company, plus, you'll find it easier to claim on warranties and to look up troubleshooting information.
