Amazon is running a new promotion where they will instantly take $15 off of a $25 order for shopping through the Amazon app. This promotion is targeted to select customers only, but it’s not only for those that have never shopped in the app, as you might expect. To see if you qualify, install the Amazon shopping app on an iOS or Android device, login, and then visit this page. The page should open within the Amazon app and if you see a yellow “Get Coupon” button at the bottom of the page, then you qualify for the promotion. Then just tap the button and purchase something that is $25 or more which is sold by Amazon.com. You will see the $15 discount applied at checkout. If you’d like, you can return to the page linked above tomorrow to receive a second $15 discount on a second $25 purchase. Amazon currently has some decent deals on Echo devices if you’re looking for something to use this promotion on.
The app TV Scoreboard for Fire TV devices is currently available for free. This app normally sells for $11.99, although it used to sell for $4.99 not too long ago, and it has never been free before. The app simply displays a “Home” vs “Guest” scoreboard on your TV that can be incremented using the Fire TV remote. It also has the option to display a clock that can count down and can play a buzzer sound when it reaches zero. Odds are you probably aren’t going to be organizing a basketball game where you need an app like this, it might come in handy someday for keeping track of board game or card game scores at home, so you might as well pick it up while it is free, just in case. Remember, you can select “Cloud Only” from the “Deliver to” dropdown menu on Amazon’s site to purchase the app, for future access, without needing to actually install it on a Fire TV. The app is compatible with all Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Smart TV, and Fire TV Smart SOundbar models.

Amazon is once again offering a Free $10 credit for purchasing a $40 Gift Card. Amazon had a similar offer earlier this month, but even if you redeemed the previous offer you can still do it again and get another $10 credit with this new offer. To get your free $10 credit, visit this page and click the yellow “Apply code to your account” button. Then buy any Amazon gift card of $40 or more. To ensure you did it right, look for the following message at checkout: “Your purchase qualifies you for an Amazon.com credit. A $10 promotional credit will be automatically applied to your account and emailed to you within two(2)days.” You can technically enter promo code “GCPRIME2021” at checkout instead of clicking the yellow apply button and can reload your credit balance instead of buying a gift card, but it seems that clicking the apply button and buying a gift card is the best way to ensure the deal works, so I suggest doing that. It works fine if you buy an eGift card and enter your own email address, which is what I did.
As part of the Prime Day early deals, Amazon is offering Prime members the PC game Battlefield 4 for free.

The Fire TV game PJ Masks: Racing Heroes has just gone Free for a limited time.

It’s compatible with all Fire TV models except the 1st-gen Fire TV and 1st-gen Fire TV Stick.

Since this is normally a paid game, it has no ads which is ideal for young kids. As a reminder, if you’re not currently near your Fire TV, you can click through the link above and “buy” the game for free through Amazon.com so that it is forever available from the cloud.
Netflix has started offering a small selection of content for free. The good news is that you don’t need to create an account or log in to start watching.

Here is how to watch the free Netflix content on an Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick. Read more ›
