Amazon App Store holds a Coin sale

Amazon coinsAmazon's app store utilizes its own currency system, in the form of Coins. These can be used by customers to purchase apps, but like other monetary inventions, it does cost real money. However, Amazon is currently holding a sale.

The company is offering its Coins at a discount, saving customers 20 percent off the regular price. That's a nice saving for the apps you want to grab.

"Available on both Android and Kindle Fire devices, users can purchase discounted Amazon Coins in the Appstore or on Amazon.com to begin saving on their favorite apps and games (and even on in-app purchases)" the company announces.

A Coin is only worth one cent, so buying 500 of them will net you $5.00, though it will currently only cost you $4.60. Customers can purchase up to to 10,000 of them.

The deal isn't available for long, so customers who wish to take advantage should consider doing so soon using the link above. The offer will expire on August 23 and you can use the Coins to grab both apps and games.
