Deal Details

OK. When you first register and connect your Leappad to the computer, you are given the option to download the following:

App 1 - Pet Pad
App 2 - Story Studio
App 3 - Art Studio
App 4 - Choose an App

You are only suppose to get 1 for App 4 but I was able to get all of them for free.

1) Select the first app on the list and click download
2) A pop up will come up and only partially cover the screen asking you to go to the App Center. DO NOT CLICK THIS!
3) In the background, you will be able to click on the next app on the left side of the screen and the Download button on the bottom right.
4) You will see the Downloading on the status bar on the top of the screen with the app names. Once complete, go to the next step
4) Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have all the apps

There are 2 eBooks, 2 games and 1 video. These are all roughly $7.50 each. They all installed and were playable without issue. That's nearly $30 worth of apps for free.
eBook: Ozzie and Mack
eBook: T-Rex's Might Roar
Game: Sugar Bugs
Game: Jewel Train
Video: Sing-Along Read-Along

Hope this helps anyone that hasn't yet set their kid's leappad up.

Also, here is the code for the Bonus eBook from Leap School Reading:
eBook: The Book of Super Awesome Stuff: 5813-1140-1518-1413

Game: Alphabet Stew (as of 12/26: Still works): http://slickdeals.net/f/2559729-Free-leapster-leaplet-bonus-code?v=1

It looks like it the bonus apps off the Manuals can be used more than once so have at it! Also, please add any Bonus app codes you may have to the WIKI. We can make this the one stop shop for all FREE apps.

YMMV:
You can reset the LeapPad to factory default and download all 5 apps:
You must connect it to the computer where you set it up with the LeapConnect and then click 'Settings' on the top right corner and there is a reset button. Process takes about 10 minutes and will erase all data and games on LeapPad.


Update 12/26 4:08pm:
Getting mixed responses on the reset to download again. Treat this as YMMV

Update 12/26 5:15pm:
Multiple reports say this does not work to reset and redownload.

If connecting for the first time, click "Skip For Now" when prompted to download your free app. You can still setup the LeapPad the rest of the way, and then come back later to perform the download trick in this thread. Confirmed that this does work, since I didnt see this thread until a day late (try giving a 4 yr old one of these for Xmas and not be asked to set it up immediately!)

I entered the code, it got accepted but how can I buy a book with that without paying for it?
Thanks

Worked for 4 of them but I had to leave the pc for a couple of minutes between the 4th item and the last ebook and my session timed out, still got the 4 instead of 1 but just something to note when you do it download them all right away.

It will automatically download (you can see this in the status bar on the top) and the next time you synch, it will upload to the Leappad. You can go into the parent account and you will see it listed.

You may want to save the video for last. I think that is the largest one.

Good thinking. Did it work? Can you reset and get all the beginning setup options again??????
