They want to stereotype you and then put items under your suggestions tab. That or they just like you.

"FB required" kills it for me, but good deal for those who use it. Thanks OP.


How does everyone not have a fake facebook account for this stuff now? I don't have an actual facebook account, but I keep one just for stuff like this because free stuff is good.

I used mine to buy a few $5-10 toys for stocking stuffers (SD front page). If someone still doesn't know what they want to buy, that might be an option for you.

Used it on the Dark Knight Trilogy Blu-Ray, $23 with current price match and credit. Not bad.

Agreed, I have a fake facebook account solely for promotions like this (and it helps registering on some websites where you can just click the sign up with facebook button.) It has also probably saved me over 50 bucks and a couple hours of time signing up for websites at this point.

I guess my FB account is really tied in to Amazon b/c getting this was a simple button press after I typed "Finishing" in the blank. Won't be a problem using it, have about $300 of random stuff waiting to be purchased.

MUCH easier than installing the coupon printer activator to get the $10 Target GC off of FB earlier. What a pain, wouldn't even work w/ Chrome, had to use IE.

Used to take some of the hurt out of Xmas shopping.

It's weird that some people will go through (for example) the hassle of printing out coupons and taking them to the store to try to swindle a clueless employee at a retailer who made a printing mistake, but won't make a fake FB account. Or just hide all app activity on their real account. Or just install and then remove the app after redeeming the code. It takes like 60 seconds.

It says you must tie the accounts, do you also create an alternate amazon account? use a prepaid credit/gift card bought with cash? what about the email used to activate them all? some email providers need a phone number to validate you, do you give a real number there?

my point is, there is no way to hide from marketers these days except to opt out of stuff like this at all. I used to facebook until it the ads started getting intrusive and things like this/websites started requiring it.

Yeah, you can choose "Only Me" as an option of who can see this app activity on the app permission page, I always do that for stuff like this, and none of your precious facebook friends will know you like to save money.

Although you would have to find something else to go along with it, I think Bit.Trip Complete sent by Amazon for $16.28 is not a bad way to build up the $25 needed.

Of course my love for the game may bias my opinion, but take it as you will.

You don't think Amazon's internal marketing doesn't already have a profile on you based on every click you've made on Amazon? Linking a fake or even real Facebook account to your Amazon account is the least of anyone's worries. If you've done any legitimate transactions on the internet - your privacy is already compromised and your information has already passed around. Welcome to the internet.

Like others have suggested, either (1) make the fake FB account (2) Make the Amazon app only visible to you under Facebook's privacy settings or (3) Just delete everything the app creates and delete the app itself as soon as the discount code is registered to your Amazon account.

Thanks OP! Now to figure out what to spend it on..

EDIT: Went with Dredd 3D Blu-Ray pre-order. It's already knocked down to $27 and this puts it at $22 :)

Zone of Enders collection is $29.99, so $25 after coupon. Is it worth $25?

If you've been interested in it then I feel it is. It'll be $20 inevitably on its own though.

I've been scouring Amazon for a good idea to use the code and Dredd is perfect!

I suggest just getting it on PC if you can as you can get it for 15 bucks often and even someone here is selling it for that much. But I would go with the 360 if you already have one and that is just the guess going off the PS3 seems to have a lot of issues with games recently for some reason.

Agreed. I signed up strictly because I keep seeing these promos for facebook. There will never be anything on my FB page, except for any of these deals.

Was gonna order a game, but I ended up getting a new iPhone 5 case and a CD instead. Needed the case much more than another game.

If we use the 5$ promotion on an item, but cancel it before it ships, can we use the promotion again on another item?

I want to get a different color controller i think

No, it states in the fine print it can not be re-used if an order is canceled, or at least it's implied.
