Update: This deal applies to select other PC digital downloads as well. Some are free, while others may set you back around a dollar.

Square Enix is currently offering a demo for Dungeon Siege III on Amazon that will reward you with $5 in free Amazon Appstore credit just for downloading it. This is virtual money that you can then turn around and spend on any Android apps or games you want (assuming Amazon offers them). Just know that you have to live in the US to take advantage of the deal.

This Appstore credit is different from Amazon Coins. The main issue to be aware of is the impending expiration date. This credit will disappear if you don't use it by the end of July, giving you a little over two months to spend it. But don't worry. Keep hanging around this site and you should have no problem spending $5 of credit in that time.

        I had to do the same. Just do it, and it will work.

        • Chris G

          have you tried to purchase an item since? does it use the credit instead of charging your card? outside of the confirmation email I don't see any record of the credit.

          • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

            I have not yet, but I bet it would charge the credit first. I need to find some apps to buy.

          • Chris G

            Confirmed. Just made the plunge and yes on the order detail it shows it gets charged to the credit.

            Thanks AP for the info!

          • Swaminathan Venkatesh

            Yup, it does use my credit first. I bought a 4.99 app and was worried until I saw the invoice.

    • Andrew

      I had to do that too.. its Amazon, no worries.

    • EH101

      Amazon always does that. It's normal. It also will make you do that any time you put a new shipping address, in my experience.

      this is what I do ... :D

      Same offer. Does not stack. That demo isn't available anymore though.

  • Aravind Arsenal

    Coins would have been better

  • Andrew

    Between this offer and all the recent Amazon Coins deals, thanks to Android Police I have an insane amount of free Amazon credit now!

    • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

      Me too, but everything I want to buy is either Kindle only or you can't use coins on.

    "Game Downloads are only available to US customers"

  • Bariman43

    Wait wait waitwaitwaitwaitaminnut. The credit is only for Amazon Appstore? Why would they have two kinds of digital credit for one digital distribution center?

  • Aki I.

    I got the email saying I got got the credit. But I don't see it in the app store. I wanted to get foldersync with that credit. Any way to confirm where payment will come come from after clicking on buy?

    • EpicTickles

      At the right side where you click to pay, there is a show balance above add to wish list

    Point to be noted is - "Limit one promotional credit per customer".

    So, don't buy multiple games. You get the $5 only once. Also, I don't think the credit applies towards Amazon App Store. afaiw, the credit can be used only towards other digital software / games. AP, re-verify / confirm?

      As a purchaser of select games from Amazon Digital Games you have earned a $5 credit valid towards games or applications from the Amazon Appstore for Android

    The Game Painkiller Resurection is another free demo that will get you the credit.

    FYI "promotional" Amazon Coins expire on the last day of the month 1 year after you obtain it. The coins from all those other offers are not permanent.
