Get a free $5 credit for any app or game from the Amazon app store

If you're running one of the latest leaks and looking to cash in on a little Christmas cheer, Amazon may have your answer. Their current promo will net you a free $5 credit good towards any app or game in their extensive catalog. All you need to do is download any app or game from the Amazon app store -- even a free one.

This does come with a few caveats however. First off you'll need to be running a leaked version of OS 10.2 on your device that allows for APK installs. If you're good there, make sure you have the latest version of the Amazon app store installed on your device. After that just fire up the app store, log in and download whatever you want. Shortly after (anywhere from one minute to an hour) you'll receive an email that the credit was added to your account. See the full details here.

Your best bet is to go the free app route to get your credit and then to do some recon before you use it to buy an app or game. Some paid apps/games aren't working on BlackBerry devices so you'll want to make sure you don't blow your credit on something that won't even run.

If you have success with all of this, drop a comment and let us know! Hit up the forums for more.

The apps from Amazon always seemed to crash on me for some reason. Cool reward though.

Crackberrykills

Same for me. Never did work for me. Oh well.

LtHavoc21

Exactly, I never had a single one that functioned properly. Most crashed.

Ditto- in fact when I installed the amazon store just now, it downloaded a game I'd chosen, then the appstore crashed, and now crashes on launch.. also the game didn't work. I'm on Q10SQN100-1/10.2.1.1055

The Android app store won't download for me any tips. Running 10.2.1.176

If ur trying to download it from within the cb app, I'd say try from the bb10 browser instead

Where are you downloading from?

I tapped the blue "amazon store" link up on the article and it took me to the browser where I downloaded it. And thought to myself "damn, that was easier than I thought! ".

emmuniz1

Whatever with the leaks and the 10.2 this and 10.2.1 that...

My Xtmas wish is that BLACKBERRY can get to the US carriers and bust their asses for NOT releasing the updates at the same time that the others around the world!!

Anyway for somebody to convert the amazon apk to a bar file to side load and run on 10.1 to take advantage of the offer? I know there's an old version of the amazon app store bar file available, but offer appears to require latest version. Thanks.

Try installing the Bluestacks emulator on your PC or Mac. Then install the Amazon App Store onto it. It should be easy enough.

konvajw

Good idea, but when I tried to install it it ran into an error with my graphics driver for some reason. Oh well. Thanks for suggestion though.

Pretty cool, Amazon! Thanks for the BB love!
(since I run the leak, this will help with my new BBM envy) :-)

Thank you

You know, there is a BlackBerry version of said app. Just sayin'

Posted via CB10

thatplaybookguy

And the BB10 version has more features and is updated before the droid one all the time. I use a desktop version of KitKat and when I get a notification for an update, it is usually three days later for me to get the update on droid....

I did this but now can't even find anything worth getting for free.

It feels like bb world has a better selection at least for paid apps.

click settings and hit use software version. should fix things right up for you. Or you could get the latest leak and it just runs perfect.
