Amazon will pay you $10 to download five completely free apps

Users of the Amazon Appstore for Android devices are now able to take advantage of one of the most attractive deals ever offered by the company. They are promoting an offer in which downloading five completely free apps could net you $10 - yes, really.

Downloading iHeart Radio, Food Network In The Kitchen, Strawberry Shortcake Bake Shop, Dr. Panda's Restaurant or Don't Step The White Tile will currently result in Amazon paying you 200 Amazon credits - worth $2 - per app into your Amazon wallet. As reported by Android Police, you do not even need to keep the apps installed on your device - once you have clicked the 'Download' button the money is credited to your account and you can cancel the install immediately.

Downloading five select free Android apps from the Amazon store will get you 200 free Amazon credits per app

You will then be free to use your $10 worth of Amazon credits on any other product in the Amazon Appstore. Michael Crider of Android Police also said that when he downloaded iHeart Radio not only did he receive the advertised 200 Amazon app store credits but also $1 worth of Amazon MP3 credit that he could use to download some songs.

This 'deal' - if it can even be called that - is one of the best seen anywhere recently. UK users got a promotion in February where eight apps worth £10 could be nabbed for nothing but here you are actually being paid to download something you can then remove and delete. It really is 'free money' and is not to be missed if you use the Amazon Appstore regularly. The apps can be downloaded from this page and it is probably best to get them sooner rather than later as there is no word on how long this offer will stick around for.

"You are not eligible to purchase this app due to geographical restrictions"

So not apps are available worldwide. I didn't get any credits, just $1 for the mp3 store.

It applies in my country.

The catch is that the $10 can only be spent in the amazon app store. They want you to use their app store. I don't use their appstore so the $10 is useless for me. They are taking a chance that they will switch people over to using their appstore and it will pay off in a year or two or ten once you buy more apps.

And then spend 699 of those coins and buy the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Kindle Fire Edition) app and get 2000 additional coins. I'm up to 2301.

Nice one. Thanks.

Me either, I get the daily free android app play with it for a few seconds then delete it. I guess I should shop through some friends amazon links and at least get them some real cash while I spend fake cash.

I now have over 3000 coins and dont have a clue what to get with them.

If you like Dr. Panda then it is your lucky day. Otherwise, meh!, the catalog is pretty reduced, may be Minecraft or Bard's Tales.

Eh, thought it would be Amazon credit, instead its only good for the Android Appstore so this promo isn't worth me digging out my old, crappy Android device for.

Geez, just figured I'd join everybody else, did the 5 apps, did the GTA one, still showing 301 coins so I guess it'll credit me whenever. I suppose there'll be something worth owning at some point. ;)
