Amazon Coins, a new virtual currency for U.S. customers to purchase Kindle Fire-compatible apps, games, and in-app items, is offering up a nice surprise! If you own a Kindle Fire, head on over to Amazon where you’ll find 500 FREE Amazon Coins in your account (worth $5!) that can be used to buy apps and games, as well as items inside apps and games. Plus, if you want to purchase additional coins for yourself or your family, you get to do so at a discount!
If you have enough Amazon Coins to make a purchase, do one of the following…
*On Kindle Fire 2nd Generation, Kindle Fire HD 7″, and Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, tap the price of the app from the detail page or the in-app item from within the app (Amazon Coins is the default payment option), and then tap Get App for apps or games, or Get Item for in-app items.
*On Amazon.com, you’ll see payment options at checkout for your regular 1-Click payment method and for Amazon Coins, and you can select either option.
*On Kindle Fire 1st Generation, make your purchase on the Amazon Appstore on Amazon.com, and then download your purchase on your device (go to Apps, and then the Cloud tab).
*NOTE – Redeeming Amazon Coins is supported on Kindle Fire 2nd Generation, Kindle Fire HD 7″, and Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, and on the Amazon Appstore on Amazon.com. If you own a Kindle Fire 1st Generation, you can redeem your Coins on the Amazon Appstore on Amazon.com, and then download it using the Cloud tab. You can’t purchase subscriptions and certain other items with Coins, redeem Coins for cash or Amazon Gift Cards, nor purchase any items outside the Amazon Appstore.
Sounds good to me! 😀
