If you haven’t tried this, it’s worth a shot. Kimberly, my husband, and others tested this when I posted it on May 22, 2014. I don’t see an ending date on the offer. Since we already did it, I can’t tell if it’s still going on or not. Please leave a comment, if you do it.
This is a smokin’ deal if you have an Android and want some app credit! It won’t cost you anything and you’ll end up with $11 in credit ($10 in the app store & $1 for Amazon MP3 albums or singles.)
You will get 200 coins (app “money”) for each one. 200 coins is equivalent to $2, so it will be like having $10 to spend. It may not be clear that you have those, but when you go to make a purchase, you will see them and it will be deducted from your purchase. The tax will even be “paid” in coins, when you make your purchase. (I don’t know when the coins will expire, so I would try to use them soon.)
Plus, you will get a $1 credit for Amazon MP3 albums or singles when you download the Food Network app. You will get an email about that one. The credit expires 1/31/15.
That’s $11 in free money — okay, credit, I know! :)
Update: Here’s a message I got from Carl. I haven’t tried it, but see that the product description does say that you’ll get 2000 coins! (Julia just verified — got them, also! Thanks, Julia!)
After you get your 1000 coins, you can purchase Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for 699 coins and instantly get 2000 coins back! You can do this even if you don’t have a device that can play GTA. Just log into your amazon account on amazon’s site and purchase it. It will warn you that you don’t have a compatible device, but just click the button that you want to buy anyways. It’s an extra 1701 coins just for a few clicks! (Thanks, Carl!) I don’t see the description anymore, so I think this has ended.
Note: If you want to get Mine Craft Pocket edition ($6.99 or 699 coins, you get back 350 coins.) (Thanks, Carl!) Update: Not sure if this is still going on or not??
Let all your Android friends know about this one!
(Thanks for the email, Patrick, & the link to Android Police!)
