Spend Amazon Coins

You can use your Amazon Coins to buy eligible apps, games, and digital in-app items.

You can redeem your Amazon Coins on Android devices, Fire Tablets, and the Amazon Appstore on the Amazon website.

To spend your Coins:
  • On Android devices and Fire Tablets, tap the price of the app from the detail page, or tap the in-app item within an app. Amazon Coins is the default payment option. Then tap Get App for apps or games, or Get Item for in-app items.
  • On the Amazon website, you'll see payment options at checkout for your regular 1-Click payment method and for Amazon Coins, and can select either option.
    Tip: On Kindle Fire 1st Generation, use your Coins to buy an item from the Amazon Appstore on the Amazon website, and then download your purchase to your device from the Cloud tab.

You can't purchase subscriptions and certain other items with Coins, redeem Coins for cash or an Amazon Gift Card, nor purchase any items outside the Amazon Appstore.

Note:

  • If there aren't enough Amazon Coins in your account for your entire purchase (including the tax), the Amazon Coins option is greyed out. In other words, you can't use Coins to pay for a portion of a purchase, and would need additional Coins to complete the purchase. For more information, go to Buy Amazon Coins.
  • To see your current Amazon Coins balance, log in to your Amazon account on the Amazon website, and go to the detail page of any paid eligible Appstore item. Your balance is on the right side of the screen, below the option to "Spend Amazon Coins."
  • Amazon Coins are not taxed when you purchase them. When you buy an item with Coins on which Amazon is required to charge sales tax, you use your Coins to pay the tax.
  • Any promotional funds available on your account are automatically applied to Appstore purchases before your Amazon Coins are redeemed or your 1-Click payment method is charged.
  • While you can use Coins for most apps, on rare occasions an app may not support Amazon Coins. In this case, the Coins payment option is not available on the app's detail page.
  • You can use Coins to purchase digital, but not physical, in-app items.
