Amazon posting $5 credit for Android app store downloads

Amazon is feeling festive, or is appearing that way in order to convince you to download from its Android app store.

The company is running a promo beginning today, December 24th, until December 28th, wherein a download, free or paid, will earn the user a $5 promo credit to his or her account. The credit appears to expire at the end of March.

The caveat is that you will have to have a US-based Amazon account, as the promo doesn’t appear to be open to the Canadian app store. This shouldn’t be too hard, as you don’t need to provide a credit card or US address to order from Amazon.com, so the promo should be relatively easy to take advantage of in Canada.
