Free $5 Credit on Amazon When You Download a Free App from their Android AppStore

Just a note that Amazon is giving out $5 credits for people who download an app from their Android Appstore, even if you have used the AppStore before.

You need to have the most recent version of Android’s Amazon AppStore and you must have 1-click enabled.  You need to purchase an app, but the app can be free.

From Amazon.com:

NEW TO AMAZON APPSTORE?

1. Download the Amazon Appstore here.
2. 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.
3. Tap the checkbox and then tap OK on the confirmation popup.
4. Download any app or game from the Appstore. (Yes, even a free one.)
5. Enjoy! We 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.

ALREADY AN AMAZON APPSTORE CUSTOMER?

Thanks for being a customer. In order to qualify for the 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:
1. Find and open “Amazon Appstore” on your device.
2. 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”.
3. Once you have the latest version of Appstore installed, download any app or game from the Appstore. (Yes, even a free one.)
4. Enjoy! We 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.

You must add a 1-click payment method in order to use your promotional credit. The 1-click payment method will not be charged unless your purchases exceed the promotional balance.

  2. OK, so now I’m like the dog who caught the car. What do I do with it?

    Is this a general $5 credit at Amazon, or just in this separate app store? I don’t see it anywhere when I log in at Amazon. Thanks for being the expert.

      Amazon said you get a $5 credit. Hours later I got a credit that says it will be automatically applied to my purchases in the app store which makes it sound like it will only work there. But it didn’t say that ahead of time, so I’m a little confused. Haven’t tried to purchase anything yet on amazon, though!
