Everyone likes free stuff, and Amazon is sort of giving you more free stuff for your Android device today. The retailer is expanding Amazon Coins to all Android devices in the US, UK, and Germany through the Amazon Appstore.
Coins can be used to buy apps or in-app content, but they used to only work on Amazon's Fire tablets. Now you can earn coins when purchasing certain apps and games and use them on any Android device. Read More
It's not the latest and greatest, but the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is still a capable device with a nice screen. You can pick up one of Amazon's Android-ish tablets on Woot right now for a mere $179.99. You better get on it, though. A good deal on Woot won't last all day.
Update #1: The 16GB Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 is scheduled to go live today also, but it doesn't seem to have trickled out to most retailers just yet. Best Buy currently has the smallest tablet in the PRO series available for $399.99 online, but only in white.
Update #2: Alas, here is the Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 in black.
Samsung's new Galaxy NotePRO tablets combine massive size with massive price, but that doesn't mean there isn't someone with fat hands and a matching wallet just waiting to give them a go. Read More
When it comes to microSD cards, some Android users won't give theirs up unless they're pried from their cold, dead hands. Amazon hears you, so the company is offering up to 50% off Transcend flash memory cards as part of today's Gold Box Deal of the Day. This reduces 32GB cards down to just $16.99, with larger 64GB cards making the drop to $37.99. A small 16GB card, on the other hand, will only cost you $9.99. Read More
The Galaxy Note 3 is one of the more desirable high-end phones on the market at the moment, especially if you like your mobile hardware big and pleathery. If you also like your service from Sprint, then Amazon's wireless store has a heck of a deal for new customers: a Galaxy Note 3 for $112.49 on a subsidized plan. That's more than $200 off the retail price. Black and white models are available, and shipping is free with Amazon Prime. Read More
One has to wonder: what's the point of a sale on a proverbially cheap item? And the obvious answer is, it's five bucks you wouldn't have otherwise had. So it is with Google's Chromecast streaming HDMI dongle, which has once again gone on sale at both Amazon and Best Buy. You can pick one up for $29.99 at either retailer, with free shipping for Prime members at the former and free shipping for everyone at the latter. Read More
The last we'd heard of Telltale Games' celebrated adaptation of The Walking Dead, it was slated for an OUYA exclusive Android release. It looks like someone got tired of waiting, because The Walking Dead is now available for download on Amazon's branded Appstore. But don't open a new tab just yet, zombie fans - it looks like this game is restricted to downloads on the Kindle Fire HDX (and probably the larger HDX 8.9) at the moment. Read More
Yesterday Amazon gave away $40 in paid apps as a Christmas gift to Android users willing to install its mobile app store. That deal ran for just one day, but now the company is following up with another set of free apps. None of yesterday's apps are still available, but the new selections include the superb Osmos HD, the point-and-click adventure The Lost City, the adorable Chimpact, and even a few non-games.

Amazon definitely knows how to get into the Christmas spirit. To celebrate the world's biggest gift-giving holiday, the Appstore is giving away over $40 in paid apps for free. There are 11 apps and games in the list, including a few big names like Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Angry Birds Star Wars II. It shouldn't be hard to find something for everybody.
The Amazon Appstore hasn't exactly grown to rival Google Play in size or overall quality, but there's still some cool stuff over there. And if you can get it for free? That's a pretty good deal. Amazon is offering $5 to spend on apps and all you have to do is download something.
Starting on December 24th and running through the 28th, anyone who downloads an app or game using the latest version of the Amazon Appstore client will get a $5 credit to spend on Appstore content. Read More
