Amazon Coins have been available to Kindle owners for a while now. But Amazon has now announced that its customers can earn coins on Android phones and tablets. Amazon Coins can be used to buy apps and other content. You need to make sure you have the latest version of the Amazon Appstore on your mobile device to get started.
Since the launch of Amazon Coins, we’ve been amazed by the number of customers using Coins, as well as how many Coins they’re spending on apps and games … Because customers can earn Coins when they buy apps in Amazon’s Appstore, and because they can buy Coins themselves at up to a 10% discount, customers love the extra value they get when shopping in our Appstore.
said Mike George, Vice President, Amazon Appstore and Games. I can’t say I have used Amazon Coins a lot in the past. But the idea remains interesting.
