Get more for your money and never lose your game progress with Amazon Coins and the Amazon Appstore [Sponsored Post]

Why pay more than you have to for the games you love? When you use the Amazon Appstore, you can enjoy big savings with Amazon Coins. And for a limited time, you can get up to 30% refunded back to you when you make purchases in some of the most popular games around.

Amazon Coins are used to make in-app purchases just like cash in games downloaded via the Amazon Appstore, but at a discount to you. Each Coin has an equivalent value to one penny, so 100 Coins = $1.00. However, you don’t pay $1.00 for every 100 Coins. For instance, if you buy $100 worth of Amazon Coins, you will only pay $87 of your own money.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Coins For Apps And In-App Purchases Are Up To 20% Off Until October 19th

Amazon's Coins program, which basically trades real money for digital currency that can only be used on the Amazon Appstore, has become surprisingly popular.

If you're digging Amazon's ecosystem, the retailer is offering discounts of up to 20% on Amazon Coins.


Coins come in packs starting at 500, with one coin being roughly equal to a US penny. You can grab 500 coins for $4.60 (8% off), 1000 for $9.00 (10% off), 2500 for $21.00 (16% off), 5000 for $40.00, or 10,000 for $80.00 (20% off).
