We’ve been tipped off of a promotion Amazon is running that gives you 300 coins ($3 value) free for browsing the product page of a book in their Children’s Summer Reading section. Only a select few qualify for this promotion. To see if you qualify, click this link to see if you get the promotion text.
If you qualify for the promotion, you will see the text “Get $3 in Amazon Coins through 6/2/2014 by clicking on a book featured in Children’s Summer Reading. Amazon Coins will be delivered to your Amazon.com account within 48 hours. Offer is valid once per customer.” at the top of the page. Be sure you’re logged in to your Amazon account. Then just browse the product page of one of the books listed on that page. Your 300 coins should be credited to your account within 48 hours.
We’ll update this post if any new information comes in. Let us know your results in the comments below.
Update: We’ve been told that “purchasing” a free children’s Kindle eBook, like this one or this one, will result in receiving an email about the promotion which qualifies you for the free 300 coins. We haven’t been able to verify this ourselves, but there’s no harm in trying it for yourself.
