Get a $10 Amazon Appstore credit for free

"What's the catch? You have to download five apps first. Don't worry: they're also free.

... currently free from Amazon's Appstore. Amazon
Good news, Android fans: You're about to get a boatload of free stuff. (Don't worry, iOS crowd: I've got a freebie for you as well. It's a bonus deal, below.)
Here's the scoop: The Amazon Appstore is home to any number of freebie apps, but for a limited time, five of those apps come with 200 Amazon Coins apiece. That means if you "buy" all five of them, you receive a total of 1,000 Coins. And that translates to $10 in Amazon Appstore credit.
If you're a Kindle Fire user, you're all set to get started. Just download the apps listed below. However, if you have a non-Kindle Android device, you'll need to install the Amazon Appstore app first. (You'll also need to tweak your device's settings to allow for "unknown app sources," as described in the simple instructions when you click through.
So here are the apps you'll need to get to collect your 1,000 coins:
Addictive (and grammatically challenged) puzzler Don't Step the White Tile [sic].
Cooking game for kids Dr. Panda's Restaurant.
Recipe collection Food Network in the Kitchen.
Awesome radio streamer iHeartRadio.
Baking game for kids Strawberry Shortcake Bake Shop.
Sort of a theme there, eh?
Just to recap, all five of these apps are free. Each one comes with 200 virtual coins. Once you've collected all 1,000 of them, you'll find yourself with a $10 credit you can blow on Amazon Appstore apps that aren't free. (And, needless to say, you can delete any/all of the five freebie apps you don't want.)"
