Amazon $5 Credit App Store
Through 12/28 Android users will be able to snag a FREE $5 Amazon Credit just  for downloading an App from Amazon’s Appstore for Android!  This is valid for new and current customers (see below) AND works if you download a FREE App too!

How to Get a FREE $5 Credit for New Appstore Customers:

  • Download the Amazon Appstore here.
  • Open Settings and navigate to the “Unknown Sources” option (under Applications or Security depending on your device).  Android requires that Unknown Sources be enabled for non-Google apps, like Amazon Appstore, to be installed on your device.
  • Tap the checkbox and then tap OK on the confirmation popup.
  • Download any app or game from the Appstore. (Yes, even a free one.)  Today’s freebie is Piano Master Christmas Special Android App!
  • Enjoy!  They will send you a confirmation via email once the credit is added to your account. Most credits are applied within a minute, but processing may take up to an hour.

How to Get a FREE $5 Credit for Existing Appstore Customers:

To qualify for this credit, you need to update to the newest version of the Amazon Appstore. You should be prompted to upgrade when you open the Appstore. If you aren’t prompted, please follow these steps:

  • Find and open “Amazon Appstore” on your device.
  • Go to “Settings” > “Version and Release Notes” to ensure you have version 7.5 or greater of the Appstore. If you have an earlier version of the Appstore, please tap “Check For Update”.
  • Once you have the latest version of Appstore installed, download any app or game from the Appstore. (Yes, even a free one.)  Today’s freebie is Piano Master Christmas Special Android App!
  • Enjoy!  They will send you a confirmation via email once the credit is added to your account.  Most credits are applied within a minute, but processing may take up to an hour.

**Please note that purchases from a Kindle Fire do not qualify.**
