Amazon Coins are on sale at 35% OFF their regular price

Amazon is currently taking 35% off when you buy 10,000 Amazon Coins. That brings the normally $100 worth of coins down to just $65. This is one of the best deals on Amazon Coins that I’ve seen in a while. Amazon Coins can be used in the Amazon Appstore to buy apps or games, and can also be used within apps to make in-app purchases. If you spend any money at all on apps, it’s silly not to first purchase Amazon Coins because they give you a much bigger bang for your buck. This promotion ends on December 29th.

New customers can get $50 in Amazon Coins for $25 [Expired]

amazon-coins-header

Amazon is running a “Coinstoppable Promotion” where new customers can purchase 5,000 Amazon Coins for $25. That’s 50% off their regular price, which is the best deal on Amazon Coins that I’ve ever seen. It’s not entirely clear who qualifies as a “new customer.” My guess is it’s either those who have never purchased Amazon Coins or those who have never purchased an app from the Amazon Appstore. When you click the “Get Started” button on the promotion page, it takes you to a page with a claim button. If you don’t qualify for the discount, a message saying “something went wrong” will appear after you click the claim button, so you’ll know if you qualify before making the Amazon Coins purchase. This promotion ends November 30.

Amazon Coins on sale at up to 20% Off [Expired]

amazon-coins-header

If you aren’t familiar with Amazon Coins, they are Amazon’s digital currency used to purchase apps, games, and in-app purchases from Amazon’s appstore. While most digital currency is a nuisance, Amazon coins have the unique advantage of always being less expensive than just using real money to make the same purchases. Case in point, you can currently buy Amazon Coins for up to 20% off. Amazon Coins come in various bundles from 500 to 10,000. The sweet spot is the 5,000 coin pack for $40 which gets you the full 20% off without having to buy too many coins at once. This Amazon Coin sale price is expected to last through November 1st. The same sale is also available in the UK, Germany, and Japan.

Spend your “No-Rush” Amazon credit before it expires tomorrow

no-rush-credit-expiring-emails
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’re probably familiar with Amazon’s “No-Rush shipping” credit. It’s the promotion which earns you credit for selecting a slower shipping method instead of Prime’s free 2-day shipping option. If you earned no-rush shipping credit between November 2014 and February 2015, then you probably have credit that is about to expire tomorrow. This credit can be used to purchase eBooks, MP3’s, TV Shows, and Movies. You can check your available balance from this page but unfortunate there is no indication of when the credit will expire. You’re best way of figuring that out is to search your email for messages that contain “credit must be used by March 31, 2015” and seeing how many credits you’ve earned.

Amazon finally adds Amazon Coin Transaction History

amazon-coin-transaction-hisotry-header
For the longest time, Amazon had no way to view a history of the Amazon Coins you spent and earned. That has finally changed. Head on over to the new “Your Coins Account” page on Amazon to view your current Amazon Coin balance and a record of all your past Amazon coin transactions. The page is by no means perfect, but it’s better than nothing. Transactions where coins were spent are clear and informative, but transactions where coins were earned still need some work. For example, the 500 coins I earned for watching a video is listed as “A special reward from Amazon” with no information about the promotion. The 300 coins I earned for buying snacks has an invoice link that doesn’t load the associated order correctly.

Amazon has also added a new dedicated page highlighting products that will earn coins. In addition to apps, this page includes movies, tv shows, music, and books that will earn you Amazon Coins when purchased. As far as I can tell, this is the only place where these coin deals are listed. This is a great way to convert digital media credit, like the credit earned from selecting a slower shipping method, into Amazon coins.

Amazon Coins on sale for up to 30% off — Lowest Price Ever [Expired]

amazon-coins-30-percent-off

Amazon just started running one of their best sales on Amazon Coins. The lower denominations are 4%, 5%, and 8% off for 500, 1000, and 2500 coins respectively. Those deals are fairly common, but it’s in the larger denominations where you’ll really see savings. 5,000 coins are currently 20% off and 10,000 coins are a whopping 30% off. Usually, the 20% off mark is reserved for the 10,000 coin denomination which will, on rare occasion, be bumped up to 25% off. However, I’ve never seen it at 30% off. That’s the cheapest it has ever been.

If paying for Amazon coins isn’t your thing, you can still get free coins when buying select groceries thru December 31st.

Free Amazon Coins for Buying Snacks — 300 coins per item purchased [Expired]

free-amazon-coins-for-grocery-snacks
Amazon has just started a new promotion where you earn Free Amazon Coins with select Grocery items. There are over 300 different items eligible which will earn you 300 coins for each item ordered. There are even some qualifying items that costs less than $3.00, making them essentially free when you factor in the value of the coins earned. Like with all free coin promotions, these free coins will expire 1 year after they’re earned, so you’ll have plenty of time to spend them. What you don’t have much time for is getting in on this promotion since it ends December 31st. So go load up on some munchies and get a bunch of free coins in the process!

Update

I can confirm that the promo is working as expected. My Cocoa Roast Almonds have arrived and my Amazon Coin balance has grown by 300.

500-coins-free-prime-video-android

Amazon has just started running a new promotion that will earn you 500 Amazon Coins, a $5 value, just for watching a Prime Video on an Android device. Simply download the Amazon App for Android, select Amazon Instant Video form the menu in the upper left, and press Play on any Prime Video. You will be asked to install the Prime Video Player and will receive your 500 Free Amazon Coins within 72 hours of streaming a movie or TV show. Full details and instructions can be found on Amazon. Unfortunately, sideloading the Amazon app onto the Fire TV doesn’t work as the app crashes when you try to access Amazon Instant Video. You’ll have to use an Android smartphone or tablet.

25% off Amazon Coins for a Limited Time [Expired]

amazon-coins-25-off

If you love trying new apps as much as I do, then this deal is for you. Amazon just started running a promotion for a limited time that knocks 25% off the price of their 10,000 Amazon Coin pack. That’s $100 worth of Amazon coins for just $75. That is by far the best deal on coins I’ve ever seen. Normally, when on sale, this coin pack sells for $90. For a very short time at the end of last year, Amazon had a promotion that took 20% off Amazon coins, but this is the first time they’ve bumped the savings up to 25%. Since Amazon coins you purchase never expire, it makes sense to pre-buy coins when they’re this cheap so that you stack the savings on top of future app deals.
