There’s a well known ‘secret’ of getting bonus card packs when you purchase hearthstone card packs through the Amazon Store. This promotion has been going for a while now and today, for today only, if you sign up for Amazon Prime, you can get an additional 25% coins!
It’s important to note that you can cancel Amazon Prime (1 month trial) as soon as you complete your purchase so you won’t get charged for Amazon Prime subscription fee.
The Current/Original Deal
Link to the hearthstone Amazon Page
- Amazon Coins have a value ratio of 100 coins = $1.
- When you buy Amazon Coins, you get up to 10% off. The 5,000 and 10,000 coin package gets you to the 10% level.
- For each $19.99 or more purchase you do on the hearthstone Store (downloaded to your Android Phone via the Amazon App), you will get 10% coins back.
- Now you can reuse the coins you got back for more card packs!
- Note: The amount of coins you get back can be different depending on the promos Amazon is running. Sometimes you can get 30% back for a total saving of 40%!
So the above promo link page is what’s on at the moment. The deals can change through the year, which has happened before, so be sure to bookmark it.
Now we’ll talk about the today only special – the Amazon Prime promotion.
Amazon Prime Promotion
The official press release can be found here. The part that is relevant for us is:
- Get 25% bonus Amazon Coins when you buy 5,000 or 10,000 Amazon Coins
So, for example, you buy 10,000 Amazon coins – a $100 value. You apply the 10% discount (explained above), it’ll cost $90. With the Amazon Prime promotion, you’ll get 12,500 Amazon Coins. So to summarize:
- You are paying $90 for 12,500 Amazon Coins that has an original value of $125, netting you a saving of $35. Don’t forget we’ll also get 10% of the purchases we make, so if we spend all 12,500 Coins, we’ll get 1,250 back, which is worth $12.50. (And this can be used again to get another 10% back).
Thus the example above would actually get you Coins worth $137.50+ for $90, saving $47.50. That’s almost like getting a free 40 pack bundle!
