Amazon is currently hosting a Memorial Day promotion that offers five apps for free in its Android Appstore. To make it even sweeter, downloading each app leads to 200 free Amazon Coins, the virtual currency used to purchase apps and in-app upgrades. Downloading all five apps, even if you don't plan on using them, will lead to 1,000 coins. You can then double that haul by taking the following steps. This is a temporary promotion running from now until March 31, 2014, so move fast.
1. Download the five promoted apps: Food Network In the Kitchen, Don't Step the White Tile, Dr. Panda's Restaurant, iHeartRadio and Strawberry Shortcake Bake Shop so your Coins balance will increase to 1,000
2. Purchase Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas with Amazon Coins (699 coins cost). You may need to do this from the Amazon website rather than a device because of compatibility issues.
3. GTA: SA should then add 2,000 Amazon coins, leading to a 2,300 coin balance. That's a $23 value you can use on apps an app purchases.
