“Since the launch of Amazon Coins, we’ve been amazed by the number of customers using Coins, as well as how many Coins they’re spending on apps and games,” said Mike George, Vice President, Amazon Appstore and Games. “Because customers can earn Coins when they buy apps in Amazon’s Appstore, and because they can buy Coins themselves at up to a 10% discount, customers love the extra value they get when shopping in our Appstore.”

Customers will find that earning extra Amazon Coins is easy and fun, whether it’s by downloading specific apps or by reaching achievements within certain games. The full selection of apps where customers can earn Coins is available by visitingwww.amazon.com/earncoins. Here’s what customers have to say about Amazon Coins:

“Amazon Coins are such a simple, easy idea I’m excited for the future of it. Plus with the money you save it’s a no brainer.” – Dan, Amazon Coins customer

“I bought these Coins so I don’t have a lot of little charges on my credit card. I balance every single purchase I make, so writing down a silly 99 cent purchase my kids make can be annoying. I buy $10 worth of Coins every few months and I save 50 cents and I also don’t have to write down little purchases, so this is a win, win for me.” – J, Amazon Coins customer

“My daughter and I both have the Kindle Fire HD and the Coins are a great way for us to stay on a budget. At the beginning of the month we each buy our Coins for the month.” – Devon, Amazon Coins customer

“Very good deal on Coins, I got at least 1 game paid for by Amazon and my money’s worth! Love Amazon and my Kindle.” – Nikki, Amazon Coins customer
