This was mentioned in the Android thread, but I felt it deserves its own thread.

 

If you got in on the $5 and/or $3 or other offers for free amazon android credit/coins this is an awesome deal.

 

None of my devices are compatible with this game, but it was an easy purchase. Use $7 in credit and get $20 back.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

What is Amazon coins? Lol, I have no idea what that stuff is. I got in on those two deals, so I might jump on this depending on what coins are.

1 coin = .01 for use on amazon apps.

 

So 2000 coins =$20. They expire in one year though. Still a great deal.

 

Basically you are turning $7 in Amazon app "cash" into $20 in Amazon app "coins".

Yeah, noticed my device was not compatible either for some reason and it is a nexus 7 which I would expect to work. I think it may be one of those Kindle optimized apps and is not listed as being so.

Mine is a Moto G and won't work either. So it's a possibility, but I don't care. I bought it to get a free $13...

Insanely awesome deal.  If anyone got in on the deals I posted the other day that's even better.

 

Have $35 in free appstore credit now. :whee:

 

See that it works with controllers too so now I need to see if the DS3 can sync up to the HDX.

When I upgrade from this Galaxy Tab 2, I'll have me a game waiting lol. Wasn't compatible, but free money is better especially since I have this on my 360.

The Appstore promo credits are often just a month or two though so that's still a win.  Like some of the free credits lately expire pretty soon.

Thanks. Even though my S4 can't play it, turning 2$ into 20$ is a no brainer (Had 5$ from the other nights promo)

Should have spent that $1 MP3 credit to get the other $3 Appstore credit that night too. ;)

Is there a way to tell when coins expire? Does Amazon notify you ahead of time at all?

No on both counts I think.  I really hate that with a lot of their stuff.  Like they do all these promotional credits with various expiration dates and restrictions and then just throw them in your account with no way to tell what anything is.

After looking a bit, the Amazon App Store has a pretty shitty game collection. Would love to get Final Fantasy, but apparently they only have IV. And Crystal Defenders looks like crap on the S4. Guess I'll be sitting on these coins for a while

Not having a compatible device has never stopped me from buying anything from them.

Wow, I feel sheepish.  I just assumed I couldn't buy it since I didnt have a compatible device.  Bought, and thanks!  Now time to find the posts you made about the other freebies.

 

On a related note, anyone else have a phone with voice and text only (like me)?  I noticed recently that my amazon apps all require me to have an internet connection or else it will force close.  Anyone notice this lately?

I can't fathom how playing a GTA game on a cellphone would be fun. With the touchscreen and all it just sounds like it would be annoying. Even on a tablet I just don't see how it wouldn't be annoying.

Ok, I have 250 coins and I have that $5 voucher from Amazon local. How exactly do I spend it though?

It says it will be automatically applied but it doesn't say anywhere in the app that it will be. I'm set up to buy coins in my Amazon App store app on my phone, but it doesn't say anywhere whether it will use the coupon or not.

Edit: I bought the coins and they charged my gift card and did not use my voucher.

Edit again: Ok, I figured it out. The discount was automatically applied to the coin price. I had no idea that would work quite like that, and the option to buy with coins didn't show up until I purchased the extra ones (even though they only charged me 199).

I just did.  So I exchanged coins for more, newer coins.

Win/Win!

I have a Samsung Seek with voice and text only and does not run internet/apps. Does that make me the CAG with the oldest cell phone?

Don't know how to improve it for smartphones, but they sell bluetooth controllers so it's easier to play on tablets (even better if you can connect it to the TV via second screen or mini HDMI). Not sure which is a good one though. I heard you can use a PS3 controller on it, but I believe you have to root it which I don't want to do.

 

 

Most of my apps were obtained through Google Play so I don't know what I would use those 2000 coins on - aside from SwiftKey for 300. Suggestions?

amazon designed some the apps as optimized for kindles and are coded as kindle tablet editions which is what the grand theft auto game might be

Seems like Google Play has better apps anyway. Wish there was a similar program to get Google Play funds.

 

Searching through the Amazon app store on my Asus tablet, the only GTA game on there is Vice City. Yet Google Play has GTA 3 and San Andreas with no Vice City.
