Now that's a thought. I didn't consider that option. Use the $5 credit on apps that give coins and get even more value.

Great idea

You're welcome!

I'll post some recommends too, some have been FAOTD too.

Practically anything from 10tons Ltd. I've recently finished Azkend and King Oddball. Both very good games.

I've recently discovered Feed Me Oil (published under Electronic Arts Inc.), and Contre Jour from Chillingo.

You have to buy the puzzle packages separately, but Puzzle Retreat by The Voxel Agents is great too. If you like Quell, you'll probably like this as the gameplay is similar.

One thing I want to add about this is there's some problems with the latest version of Amazon's AppStore app. First off, if you have a lot of apps, which most of us who grab many of the free apps of the day will, it takes forever to refresh the full list, even on fast wifi. I'm talking several minutes, on a 1st gen Nexus 7 with 220+ apps. I can literally go make a sandwich and come back and it'll just about be done refreshing. I figure by next year (if they don't fix this issue), it'll be taking so long I could eat the sandwich too before it finishes. (And it didn't take this long on the old version of the app, so it's not the Nexus.)

Second thing is when I upgraded to the latest app design it renamed my device (looks like it deregistered it and re-registered it on me) and will not let me rename it. I actually had to call support about the issue, and ended up talking to a supervisor. They had me try everything, and it still wouldn't let me rename it, or let them either. She had to file a bug report with the developers and warned me it'd probably be a while before I got a resolution to the issue. Still haven't gotten one, and still can't rename it. There's been at least one update since then too, but it's till not fixed. So if you have multiple devices and need to rename them to keep track of what is what, I suggest you only upgrade one device, or backup the APK and downgrade after getting your credit.
Thanks for mentioning your problems with the Amazon Appstore update. I had a similar thing happen on one of the earlier upgrades. It deregistered my device and somehow I ended up with three devices in my account, even though I really have only two. For that reason, I haven't updated the app in a long time.

Just be careful about coin expiration. I think the freebies we've gotten for buying apps last ~1 year from date of purchase, but IIRC, the free 500 coins for Amazon Kindle Fire owners expire on 12/31. I know of no way to check when your coins expire, you'd probably have to contact support and hopefully they can tell you.

You should be able to use the credit on the packages. Puzzle Retreat is quite good, I enjoy it a lot. I like it better than Quell myself.

The PathPix games are also quite fun, there's a free PathPix Lite that has nine puzzles in it you can try. I picked up the first game and the Christmas themed one the other day and my mother's just loving them to death. I think she likes them more than I do actually.

I just updated the Amazon Appstore on the Android device that I rarely use. I then "purchased" today's Free App of the Day from there. I now have the $5 app promo credit in my account.

I thought about that strategy late last night. I'm not sure if there are any Free Coin-earning apps I want to buy, but I'm going to take a look. I could probably earn enough free coins from those purchases to then get the more expensive app I've been eyeing with free coins.

Here's a link: Apps that Earn Free Amazon Coins.

Promotional (free) coins expire one year from receipt (end of month). Purchased coins never expire. Coins given out with the purchase of an app are considered promotional (free) and will expire.

The first batch of 500 free coins expire 31 May 2014. Free coins given out during subsequent promos expire 31 Oct 2014, 30 Nov 2014, 31 Dec 2014, ...etc.

Fine Print
Quote:
2.4 Promotional Coins. All Coins that you do not pay for or receive as a gift from another customer are Promotional Coins. This includes any Coins we give you in connection with your purchase of apps or other products, your use of other Amazon services, or any other promotional activity.

2.5 Expiration Dates; Application of Coins. Purchased Coins do not expire. Promotional Coins expire on the last day of the calendar month one year after we give them to you (for example, Promotional Coins we give you on May 15 will expire on May 31 of the following year). When you make a purchase with Coins, any Promotional Coins you have will be applied first (and will be applied in the order of their expiration dates, with the earliest expiration date first), followed by your Purchased Coins.

Thanks for the additional free apps! Those appear to be compatible with Kindle Fire tablets only, not other Android devices.

You're right. I changed Sonic to reflect that info. It wasn't in the title like the other two.
