Get 300 Amazon Coins for browsing Summer Reading for Kids
I think this one is clever, although I certainly expect to encounter some push back to it.
Amazon has a
It’s further divided into
- Summer Reading for Kids (2,364) (at time of writing)
- Summer Reading for Teens & Young Adults (1,114)
- Summer Reading for Adults (1,878)
and has a lot more discovery options besides those age-based ones.
Well, if you click on a book featured in the Summer Reading for Kids section (you don’t have to buy it…just click on it), you’ll get $3 in AmazonCoins (you can only do this once per customer…in case you had dreams of a clicking frenzy). 😉
My guess is that there may be some criticism from people who think that apps are likely to distract children from reading, so they may see this as hypocritical (since the coins are used to buy apps or make in-app purchases).
However, that is a perhaps…shallow understanding of apps.
That’s like saying that “all books are good for you”. Oh, wait…I do think that one’s true. 😉
It would be like saying all comic books are for children. A medium, while it may influence the content, does not define it.
There are, for example, over 1,500
in the Amazon Appstore…some of those might actually encourage someone to do more reading.
Regardless, this is a low cost way to get $3 worth of coins. 🙂

* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help!
