Ok I know this isn't a slickdeal per se. But I know many of you will thank me for posting this, as it will affect many Slickdealers, and quite a large amount of promotional coins are at risk this month. So let's just say this post helps keep a previous Slickdeal, a Slickdeal (because nothing is less slick than letting a LARGE amount of promotional value go to waste).



Remember these Slickdeals from last May?


9 Select Android Apps w/ 900 Amazon Coins ($9 Value): Paper Camera, Pic Frame Free & More (expired)


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas + 2000 Amazon Coins for Android Devices $7 (expired)


Almost $30 worth of coins nearly free (and for many, completely free) from those two deals.


Well the time has come to get rid of these coins if you haven't already done so.


Amazon Coin Terms [amazon.com]
Quote :
3. Promotional Amazon Coins expire on the last day of the calendar month one year after we give them to you (for example, promotional Amazon Coins we give you on May 15 will expire on May 31 of the following year).
Use them by May 31st, or lose them!

I'm an extremely active Android fanboy, yet I still have about 900 coins left from these deals. So I can bet many of the casual users will have a hefty balance still left over.

Possible expiration of 5/22 per Amazon CSR

How to check your Amazon Promotional Credit balances:

There is currenlty no known way to view each date per individual coin balance expiration.

just got off chat, was told

Amazon Coins that you've purchased never expire.
For accounts that have not bought or spent Coins in a 12 month period, promotional Coins that you've been awarded expire 12 months after you've received them.
but if you have coins activity on the account. It will only start to expire after 12 months once you stop making any purchases.




I have a hard time even finding things to spend Amazon Coins on, so..
If you have app recommendations for spending Amazon Coins Please list here:
Photoshop Touch $9.99 http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Syste...B00A3VLJCE

The Silent Age [amazon.com] (episode 2 is available via in-app purchase)

Hearthstone recently came out for Android phone so I was able to spend it all on the expansion sets. I had issues getting it installed on my phone via the Amazon AppStore but you can use an Android emulator to spend your coins.
Seems like a lot of people are asking questions on how to do this. Ping me with questions and I'll be happy to help but here are the basic steps. - Alkaar
1. Install an emulator like DuOS, Bluestacks, Genymotion
2. For Genymotion pick a tablet to emulate. I used Nexus 7 2013 Android version 4.4.
3. You may have to install extra things to get it to interpret apk files or at least I did for Genymotion. Don't remember the specifics right now since I'm at work.
3. Download the Amazon AppStore, install Hearthstone, run as normal and you should be able to spend your coins.

These are all decent, and can personally vouch for them ymmv depending on the device you have:

The only promotional balance checking is for the two attached to my sig. - I haven't found a source (and Amazon doesn't have one they're sharing) to check Coin promo balance dates.

Ugh, I have 4000 coins! I rarely pay for apps and it is usually through the Play store.

For avid Hearthstone players, download DuOS (android tablet emulator) and spend your amazon coins on card packs / expansions

Thanks OP! I forgot about these expiring. You can see earned/used coin tranactions going to this link https://www.amazon.com/gp/coins/account. For the promo coins, you could probably add a year to determine expiration.

Between all the Amazon free app's of the day (I've probably only missed a dozen of them since day one), free limited time bundles, Appstore promotional credit deals (not coins), and promotional coin rolling, I own everything.

Seriously.


Only recommendations I have is checking out the top charts, or seeing if there are pro/paid versions/premium IAP's of your favorite apps.

It also says "Promotional Coins expire one year after the later of the date we give them to you or the date you last purchased or redeemed Coins. When you make a purchase with Coins, any Promotional Coins you have will be applied first, followed by your Purchased Coins." So I don't know.

I tend to use my Amazon Coins for in-app purchases such as more tables in Zen Pinball HD [amazon.com] or Pinball Arcade [amazon.com]. They don't seem to give those away for free. Seems like most popular apps are offered for free on some point. I have NEVER seen Minecraft [amazon.com] offered for free and it's always in the top 10 paid apps on Amazon. Maybe that might be worth getting.

You could also use it for the season passes for the Telltale Game [amazon.com] (like The Walking Dead games).

If you have kids, I would suggest getting the My Playhome apps [amazon.com]. Toca Boca [amazon.com] makes some good apps as well for kids.
