Amazon Offers Freebies and Discounts for the Last Time this Year

Amazon Offers Freebies and DiscountsYou may think that it could already be too late to look for and buy that perfect gift for yourself, your friends, and your family. For Amazon.com, the season of giving is not yet over. The online retailer asserts that there is still much time for customers to earn several holiday bucks. Thus, the company offers its last blow of freebies and discounts for 2013.

Starting on December 24, Android customers would be given $5 credit for each download of any application through the Amazon Appstore. This offer is of course limited, as it is set to last only until Saturday, December 28. And the offer stands at just one promotional credit for each customer and account.

Since this campaign covers free and paid apps, each Android user could possibly generate a profit when he downloads the popular Candy Crush Saga or Angry Birds, which are generally distributed for free. But there’s another catch: Customers should download apps only through the newest Amazon Appstore version—7.5 or higher.

Other interesting offers

There are more offers for freebies and discounts from Amazon before the year ends. Other than the free $5 credit for downloading apps, games, or other in-app purchases, the company has also started giving away Free App bundles and hefty discounts on popular titles from December 25 (Wednesday) to December 26 (Thursday).

Throughout this week, Android users/customers could find the best deals within the app store. Up to 65% of discount is imposed on content like Electronic Arts, Gameloft, and Sega. On Thursday, Amazon would roll out a one-day only sale on the popular Office Suite Pro 7. Of course, customers could also expect and look forward to Free App of the Day offers.

Offering good deals to customers

In a statement, vice president for Amazon appstore and Games Mike George said the company aims to help its customers to add more apps and games at best deals to their Android devices especially this holiday season. He reiterated that most of their customers now search through Amazon to find good deals throughout the season. Thus, the new offers are like giving back to loyal patrons.

Amazon also committed to send confirmation email for each credit added to one’s account. In general, credits provided to customers are applied within just a minute. The processing period could last until an hour.
