There's a Memorial Day weekend promotion going on now in Amazon Appstore that gives you $10 in Amazon Coins for purchasing of 5 free apps. For those unfamiliar with Amazon Coins, 100 coins is equivalent to $1 to use on paid apps and games. Those are Android applications that can be used on Amazon Kindle, color Nook devices and Android tablets and phones.
In order to be able to purchase and download those apps, you have to install Amazon Appstore on your device. Installation instructions are located here.
The 5 applications that give you 200 Amazon Coins each are as follows. You don't need to install them, you can simply purchase them and keep them in your Android library on Amazon. If you already happen to own any of those apps, you can go to your library, delete the app and repurchase it to get the coins.
Strawberry Shortcake Bake Shop - Dessert Maker Game for Kids in Preschool and Kindergarten
Food Network In the Kitchen
Don't step the white tile
Dr. Panda's Restaurant - FREE - Cooking Game For Kids
iHeartRadio - Free Music & Internet Radio
Amazon Coins may not show up instantly on your account, sometimes it take a minute or 2 for them to be applied. You can verify your coin balance by going to any paid game ( example ) and the coin balance will be shown over "Buy this app" button.
If you'd like to instantly multiply the newly acquired coins, you can still buy Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for 699 coins + tax (in coins) to get 2000 coins back, that's almost $14 to spend.
In addition Amazon is running a promotion where they give you $10 Appstore credit with purchase of select gift cards. Looking at variety of the gift cards, I think almost everyone should find a store where they're already shop, why not get $10 credit for it.
Gift cards are listed here: Memorial Day weekend gift card promo
