Amazon Underground brings a new perspective on what it means to download an Android app or game. By launching Amazon Underground, Amazon made available over $10,000 worth of apps and games free to use and play. The $10,000 worth of apps and games on offer are "Actually Free" apps and games, meaning there is no financial cost to the user in downloading, using or playing. Amazon Underground is available to anyone who owns a Fire or Android device, requires an Amazon account to log-in and is free to download. However, for those that often purchase in-game items or purchase apps that are not part of the Actually Free program offered by Underground, then making use of Amazon Coins is one way to make savings on the apps and in-game items you purchase.
For those new to Amazon Coins, they work as a virtual currency for apps. As Amazon Coins work as currency, they can just as easily be used for purchases for in-game items as well as for the initial outlay of an app or game. What makes the use of Amazon Coins beneficial is the fact that you can save when comparing to paying outright for in-app or game costs. Amazon Coins can be used at a value of one cent per coin (or better thought of as 100 coins per $1). However, when buying Amazon Coins, you can save up to 10% of their value depending on how many you buy. So purchasing 500 Amazon Coins, which offer a $5 value, will only cost $4.80. A saving of 4%. A 1000 Amazon Coins, which is essentially a $10 value, will cost $9.50, equating to a saving of 5%. While 10,000 Amazon Coins equates to a $100 value and will only cost $90. A saving of 10%. So, for those who do often purchase in-game items, it makes sense to use Amazon Coins. You can play more and spend less with Amazon Coins.
That is not the extent to the savings that can be had with Amazon Coins though, as Amazon often offers promotions where you can save even more. Some of these offers add up to a saving of up to 20% on the number of Amazon Coins you buy. Then there is the Amazon Coins Back program. Select games will actually offer the option to receive coins back for purchases made using coins for in-game items. At any given time, there are a number of games which offer the opportunity to earn up to 25% coins back on select in-game items. The list of games changes often too, so it is always worth checking regularly what games are on the list. When you combine the savings which can be made by purchasing and using Amazon Coins for in-games items with the ability to earn up to 25% coins back, then again, you can play more and spend less.
We have teamed up with Amazon to offer readers the opportunity to play more and spend less with Amazon Coins. As such, we are giving away 1000 codes which will reduce the cost of buying 1000 Amazon Coins by 50%. In short, thanks to this sponsored by Amazon promotion, you can get $10 worth of Amazon coins for only $5. Although, it is worth pointing out that this promotion is only available to U.S. customers and only one redemption per customer.
