I cannot find my amazon $5 credit although I have received the email that I have received the credit. I have added one item that is sold by amazon.com but it does not apply with the $5 credit. Any one can help? Thanks,

Worked just fine through Bluestacks. Thanks for pointing out this program. I've never heard of it before.

I see Get Started but not Get App.

Glad you got it to work using Bluestacks.

Thanks for the info CodeTrader and io, updated my original post.

Yeah, I figured it out.  My wife's account has a Kindle Fire linked to it and I see the "Get App" link when I use her account.  On my account, where I have no device linked, I only see the "Get Started".

There was also a free cloud storage promotion recently for downloading an Underground app. I wonder what the benefit is to Amazon to motivate people to download free apps with free in-app purchases.

Ha...I was just putting the Amazon Underground app on another phone for one of my other Amazon accounts and I got an offer for $5 off for a friend's order using the app and then I'll earn $5 off.

Got it thanks OP. Promo credit did not apply on a 10 PSN card though. Bought something else, easy discount.

Interesting...the promo balance doesnt appear on my giftcard page, ONLY on the stupidly hidden Mp3/video credit page. And even then, it shows up as Amazon video credit...weird.

 

Checking my cart, it totally is taking $5 off though....so w/e lol.

 

Amazon's "promo/credit" listing is so awkwardly hidden, I still have yet to find a direct link to my MP3 credit from the "account page".

The credit seems to have been applied to Amazon MP3. :|

 

Edit: Oh wait it shows up as video credit? Weird.

What happens if you try to buy an Amazon gift card with the credit and use the gift card to buy a PSN card?

It won't allow you to use the credit on an Amazon Gift Card.

Click "enter code" while signed in and it'll give you the balance for everything. No idea how you get to this page normally, I've just had it bookmarked forever,lol

Can you use this to buy amazon coins? I just downloaded the app because I got a random email from amazon giving me a $25 promo credit, but I'm having a terrible time of trying to understand what it applies to or not. All I really want to do is buy the Hearthstone expansion, but it looks like you need to buy amazon coins first, but it only uses your "one click settings" and I want to make sure it's using the promo credit and not charging my credit card. Has anyone done this?

Apparantly I have $8 in mp3 and $6 in video credits. Still not sure if I got the $5 from doing this... edit - never mind, looks like I can get Toy Soldiers: War Chest Hall of Fame Edition - Xbox One Standard Edition - for $4.99 ($5.29 after taxes) using the $5 credit. edit #2 - after doing that, it lowered my mp3 credits to $3 and video to $1.

 

Edit #3 - Thanks OP! (i'm bad about this...)

I downloaded the app on my phone, but it wants access to too much of my information so I'm not installing it.  I don't understand how to make this work on my pc either.  The pages always says "get started" for me.

Amazon was handing out $25 bucks in credit. But to get the app you had to agree with it obtaining access and control to pretty much everything and anyone in your phone.

 

No thanks.

Dangit, if I'd known that I would've given it full access on a barebones, contactless phone!
