    Amazon is giving free coins for their appstore again.

    In case you don't know. The coins are virtual currency that you can use for the appstore. The can be earned through purchases or special promotions like the link bellow. Each coin is worth one cent. The promotion is five free android app that gives 200 coins each for a total of 1000 coins. That's $10 worth of apps you can get.

    Here

    There is another promotion. Use your recently acquired coins and get "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" for 699 coins and get 2000 bonus coins.

    Here

    The free coins is today only and is a promotion by Amazon to promote their appstore. The GTA promotion has been going on for almost a week.

    Yup.

    Before the coin giveaways, I used the Amazon Appstore over Google Play when bonus coins was offered. As an example, I bought "Minecraft - Pocket Edition" on the Appstore for $6.99 and got 350 coins out of it. If you have 699 coins to use and want the game, you get 350 coins back.

    Wow, that was easy. You don't even need to install anything, just click a few links (and have a Strawberry Shortcake purchase on your record).

    Thanks for the tip!

    You will need to install the Amazon Appstore app to your device to download the apps. :)

    Here is another Amazon promo for their appstore.

    Just purchase this free demo and a $5 for the appstore will be added to your account.

    Be advised that this is $5 credit, not coins. The speed when the credit applied varies. Usually you will get an email. To check if your credit is applied go to a random app that you have to pay. Above the "Add to Wish List" button there is a link that says "Redeem a gift card or promotion code & view balance" Click on it and the appstore credit balance will show.

    and

    Still getting the free coins for those apps, but I am confused, what I can use the coins for? I have a few apps that I can purchase add ons for, but do not seem to see any of those for purchase with coins

    When you go to a random app like this, do you have a option that say "Spend Amazon Coins" on the right?
