Amazon launched a new promotion today. Buy an Android device tied to Verizon Wireless and you will also get a $25 credit towards the purchase of apps in the newly launched Amazon Appstore. Note that this deal is limited to the USA. The promotion begins today and runs all week.
This isn’t the first time that Amazon has offered a store credit with purchase. For example, you can sigh up with Audible for $15 per month and get $100 off the price of certain MP3 players sold by Amazon.
I’m looking forward to the day that Amazon offers a similar deal for Android tablets. Perhaps it will be a periodic sale; buy a tablet and you’ll get a $25 credit. On the other hand, tablets are getting cheaper every month. I don’t know that this will work well for Amazon.
