Amazon Coins are now available for Android Devices in the US, UK and Germany. The company announced last month that customers in the US, UK and Germany can buy, spend and earn Amazon Coins on their Android phones and tablets. Amazon Coins was previously available for use exclusively on Kindle Fire tablets.
“Since the launch of Amazon Coins, we’ve been amazed by the number of customers using Coins, as well as how many Coins they’re spending on apps and games,” said Mike George, Vice President, Amazon Appstore and Games. “Because customers can earn Coins when they buy apps in Amazon's Appstore, and because they can buy Coins themselves at up to a 10% discount, customers love the extra value they get when shopping in our Appstore.”
The Amazon Coins can now be used to buy the latest apps such as Ridiculous Fishing, purchase extra lives within Candy Crush, or unlock Red’s amazing Super Roaster in Angry Birds GO directly from their Android device. According to the company, customers simply need to download the latest version of the Amazon Appstore and their existing Coins balances automatically appear.
Amazon also recently announced the company will be hiring more than 2,500 full-time workers at shipment centers around the U.S. "Today, we're excited to announce 2,500 full-time jobs, bringing new employment opportunities to local communities across the country," said Mike Roth, vice president of North America operations, in a company statement. Last year Amazon hired more than 20,000 people at its fulfillment centers. Amazon currently has 117,300 full-time and part-time employees at the end of 2013, according to a regulatory filing.
