Following their announcement of the new “Coins” virtual currency, Amazon has given all Kindle Fire owners 500 coins for free, a $5 value. Coins can be used by Kindle Fire owners to purchase apps, in-app purchases, and other content from the Amazon Appstore. This generous offer by Amazon will result in them giving away “tens of millions of dollars’ worth of Amazon Coins” to Kindle Fire owners. The 500 free Amazon Coins should already be in your account if you are eligible for the giveaway.
This promotion comes just hours after Amazon’s Kindle Fire Mother’s Day sale has ended.
