Amazon Coins are a new virtual currency for folks to purchase apps and games—use them just like cash.
Right now, Kindle Fire owners who visit Amazon will find 500 Amazon Coins in their account for free (a $5.00 value). Even better, additional coins can be purchased at a discounted rate!
How to redeem your coins:
- On Kindle Fire 2nd Generation, Kindle Fire HD 7″, and Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, tap the price of the app from the detail page or the in-app item from within the app (Amazon Coins is the default payment option), and then tap Get App for apps or games, or Get Item for in-app items.
- On Amazon.com, you’ll see payment options at checkout for your regular 1-Click payment method and for Amazon Coins, and you can select either option.
- On Kindle Fire 1st Generation, make your purchase on the Amazon Appstore on Amazon.com, and then download your purchase on your device (go to Apps, and then the Cloud tab).
*Remember: Amazon Coins are compatible with Kindle Fire 2nd Generation, Kindle Fire HD 7″, and Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, and on the Amazon Appstore on Amazon.com. If you own a Kindle Fire 1st Generation, you can redeem your Coins on the Amazon Appstore on Amazon.com, and then download it using the Cloud tab. You can't purchase subscriptions and certain other items with Coins, redeem Coins for cash or Amazon Gift Cards, nor purchase any items outside the Amazon Appstore.
