I’m sorry for my absence, everyone. It seems like life, writing every else on the internet, and video games has me leaving this space sporadically and I’m sorry about that. But I finally am doing something I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time and that is… a giveaway! Thanks to the lovely crew over at Amazon, who are sponsoring this post, I’ll be giving away some discounted Amazon Coins which can used in the Amazon Appstore. This is the first of a trilogy of posts, so expect some more video game centric posts. Haven’t used the Amazon Appstore? Let me break it down for you.

What is the Amazon Appstore:
You can access the Amazon Appstore from any Amazon Fire device (Example: your Kindle) or from any Android device. For Android devices, just visit here, make your Amazon account if you don’t have one and do the following:

– You will be asked to open a web page through one of your browsers to download the Amazon
Appstore App (e.g. Boat Browser, Dolphin Browser, etc.). After opening the link in your browser,
you will be able to download the Amazon App.
– Make sure to enable “Unknown Sources” during the installation process.
– If you are currently playing a game through Google Play or iOS, make sure to sync your
information to maintain your progress so you can pick up where you leave off.
– It may also be helpful to delete the existing version of your Google Play app before installing the Amazon version.

What are Amazon Coins?
Amazon Coins are virtual currency that can be used to buy apps and in-game items in the Amazon Appstore (see above). By using Amazon Coins, you can save up to 10% on apps, games, and in-app purchases. The more coins you have, the more you can play. For example, 100 coins are worth $1. You can purchase Amazon Coins here: http://www.amazon.com/buycoins. You can also earn Amazon Coins which is also a good thing. Here’s how to get yours:

– In addition to being able to buy Amazon Coins at a discount, Amazon Appstore also gives up to 25% in
Amazon Coins back on select in-game purchases. Here is a link to all of the games that are currently giving Coins back on in-game purchases: http://www.amazon.com/b?node=6185968011 (Check back every week for an updated list)

I’ll be giving away 100 codes which will get you 50% off 2,500 which, trust me, will get you quite a bit of games. You can enter below via Rafflecopter or leave your email in the comments!

*US ONLY. You cannot participate in this campaign if you reside in: Arkansas, Colorado, Maine, Missouri, Rhode Island or Vermont.

  1. My current favorite ioS app is Pokemon Shuffle (it’s kind of a problem), but I’m dying to download Final Fantasy VII now that it’s available!
