Amazon will celebrate Christmas by handing out $5 store credits to anyone who downloads an app from its Amazon Appstore. It can even be a free app, so the deal is essentially open to anyone with access to the Android alternative app store.
From December 24 to December 28, customers who download an app from the Amazon Appstore automatically get a $5 credit to use toward the purchase of more apps. To make purchases more appealing, a dedicated section of the store has been created to highlight apps that have been discounted. Some discounts reach as high as 65 percent off its original price for popular apps. The biggest drop will be Office Suite Pro 7 costing only $0.99 on December 26, down from its usual 14.99.
Amazon will also increase the number of apps that it delivers for free. The Free App of the Day program will include “Welcome packs” with several utilities, and a few old but well-received titles like Angry Birds Star Wars and Where’s My Perry?
Anyone with a new Amazon Kindle HD or an Android app capable of running the Amazon Appstore can get more information here.
