Amazon just can’t help giving stuff away lately. After the impressive $22 promotion for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, they’ve come back with another Amazon Appstore freebie. If you download the five apps at this link (iHeart Radio, Food Network In The Kitchen, Strawberry Shortcake Bake Shop, Dr. Panda’s Restaurant, and Don’t step the white tile [sic]), your Amazon account will be credited with 1000 Amazon Coins, i.e., ten bucks to spend in the Appstore.
In fact, downloading each title will get you 200 Coins apiece ($2), but there’s no reason not to grab them all for the free credit. Unlike the GTA deal, this promotion will work on any Android device with the Amazon Appstore installed – you can even see the “200 Coins” text underneath the download button. You don’t have to keep the apps installed (and with the possible exception of iHeart Radio, why would you want to?), you can get rid of them as soon as they’re downloaded.
Just a reminder: Amazon Coins can only be used for apps or in-app purchases in the Amazon Appstore. They can’t be applied towards purchases of physical goods or digital content like movies or Kindle books. International readers may or may not have access to this promotion.

P.S. downloading one of the apps above (I think it was iHeart Radio, but I can’t be sure) gave me an additional $1 credit for Amazon MP3. Bonza.
