I tried this one, but all I get when I select MLB.com Team Shop is a msg “Something didn’t work right…try again?” And of course trying again doesn’t work. I tried both Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.

That's too bad. I didn't have any problems. The banner popped right up for me when I opened MapQuest for the first time. I did it on a Nexus 4.

Do you have parental controls on? I thought that might be a problem so I turned it off but it still didn't work l. Is this the only way to require a password for purchases? That's why I have it turned on.

I have parental controls turned off. I don't think it's the only way. It gave me the option to always require a password for in-app purchases while I was making the purchase.

I don't think this promo works if you already have MapQuest. I deleted it from my account and started over. It took awhile to disappear; but once it was gone, I downloaded it from my Nexus.

Did it require you to enter a password the first time you made an in-app purchase? I wish I could set it up to require a password for every purchase whether in-app or not.

Yes, it did. Can't you go into the settings and change it?

The only thing I found to require a password was in parental controls - is there a setting somewhere else?

I checked, and it appears so. I decided to turn on parental controls.

It might not work for everyone - YMMV


Get 449 Amazon Coins for spending $1.99
I got only 60, as the person I complained to about the charge on my cc did a return, not a credit and coin reduction, so I had to repurchase. Apparently "new customer" means to Mapquest's MLB store (the first time I got 199).

My second time around, coins were used, as I used my Fire (despite the promo telling you to use a generic Android device, as that was what I used when it didn't properly charge my coin balance).

So, had to chat with support and get the extra coins added.

I suspect people getting an extra 250 are ones that are doing their FIRST purchase on the free w/ bonus list (I got mine long ago) and those come with the free app.

Oh, and I did have to pay tax on the MLB add-on, so it was a net loss of 19 coins, for me (and ignoring the value of the time spent going thru it all).

I got that same 250 coin bonus last year too. So for me, I got a second 250 coin bonus. The site I linked to even mentioned it and didn't know why it was happening.

Quote:
It is unclear right now why most people are receiving an extra 250 coins. Amazon has been running a long time promotion which rewards you 250 coins for your first purchase of select apps. We, like many others receiving the extra 250 coins with this MapQuest promotion, have received our “first purchase” reward long ago so it is unclear if the extra 250 coins here are related.

Have you made an in-app purchase before? Maybe that's what it's for?

I just installed MapQuest on my old Nexus 7 and finally got my 449 coins!

There's a thought. This was my first in-app purchase. The nice thing about this promo was being able to convert $1.99 in credits to 199 coins; thereby extending the expiration date to a year.

Cool

BTW, which team did you get? I don't care for sports that much, so I got the local guys - Mariners.

Just thought I'd share a suggestion, I bought Monument Valley for 399 coins. It doesn't give you anything back, but it was a nice buy with my thousands of coins I still have to spend through.

It's a short game, only having 10 levels, that will take a few hours, but it's still great. I just got done with it after a play through all this morning. It's very FEZ like in a sense that you have to move the world around to make the pathways.

The visuals are very tablet worthy.
