Free $5.00 from Amazon towards any Android App or Game

For a limited time (expires July 31, 2014), Amazon is providing $5.00 free to anyone who purchases a digital game or application off the Amazon Android store. A little workaround lets you get this credit for free, without purchasing anything or for purchasing a game that's $0.99. The credit is auto-applied to your account after you purchase and you'll receive a confirmation email telling you about the credit. The caveat is that you have to use the promotional credit by July 31, 2014 - but it can be used on pretty much any android app available on their store (which is prety vast). To get the promotional credit, follow these steps:

  1. Create or login to your Amazon account and order the free demo of King's Bounty: Armored Princess
  2. Go through the entire process and be sure to use a US shipping location (otherwise it'll reject your order).
  3. Once you've completed your order for the free demo (which costs nothing), you'll be asked to download the demo. You don't have to actually download or play it - but hey it's a free game!
  4. You should receive an email with the free $5.00 added to your account automatically!

Free £2 ($3.37 USD) Amazon Android App Store voucher

Free £2 ($3.37 USD) Amazon Android App Store voucher Maybe it's just me, but Amazon is on fire with all these great free vouchers and deals! If you haven't caught any of the previous offers, be quick and get a free $2 British pounds (or $3.37 USD) voucher that can be spent at the Amazon Appstore for any Android app available. There's lots of free apps out there, but there's some great paid apps that I would otherwise never pay for - but can now get free :)

So there's a few caveats - but this offer can be used by anyone (regardless of location). The apps work on any Android device (so it's not just limited to Kindles or Amazon tablets).
  • You have to redeem the voucher by 11:59pm on June 18, 2014
  • Voucher can be used on app and in-app purchases, but cannot be redeemed against in-app subscriptions.
  • It can only be used only on apps, you can't use it towards products.
To get the voucher:
  1. Claim your voucher (you'll get a confirmation receipt)
  2. View the apps available for download and download!
Few of the top paid apps you can get for free:
Angry Birds: Star Wars II, Dummy Defense, Tipping Point, Fruit Ninja, The Chase, Scribblenauts Remix, Plants vs. Zombies, Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom, Monster's University, Birds of Britain and basically anything 2 pounds or less!  
No purchase is necessary beyond an Amazon account and it may require you to have a credit card linked (it never actually makes a purchase or uses your Credit Card, so I'm not sure if this is a requirement). If for some reason you get a message about location, try the following:
Go to your account settings and click on manage my kindle and then click country settings and switch it to UK by changing your address temporarily to a location in London. Once done the steps above, make your purchase - although it wasn't necessary for most people.
