To my knowledge I have never used these, but 40 show in the corner of my Kindle when I look at apps. Is this just a way of trying to persuade me to buy some?

No, you were given them as a gift by Amazon. (Are you sure it's not 400?) Have you not purchased any apps in recent weeks? If you have that could easily be why you have so few, or perhaps that was all you were given. I have no idea what criteria was used in distributing them but you should have received an email. Perhaps it's in your Spam folder. I received 400.

Thank you. Yes, it is 400 (typing too quickly).

Another question that you may be able to help me with, if you don't mind. I bought some DVDs and CDs and was sent emails saying that I had £1 credit towards downloads. Does that show up anywhere in my amazon account or do I just have to save the emails?

Thank you for your help.

It doesn't show anywhere as far as I'm aware but the credit will be applied when you buy the appropriate media, usually mp3s. If you were given a Voucher code you'll need to enter that at the basket stage.

Denis, I also have 400 coins but not sure if I received an email regarding this. How do I use them? Thanks.

When you search for an App or Game in the Store on your Fire you'll see an option to either use real money by paying using your usual method (Credit card of Gift Card Balance) or using some of your Amazon Coins.

Edited to add that I had the email on 22 Nov.

Here's the web page for Terms and Conditions:

Here's the web page to buy more - they're value is greater than the amount you pay for them.

500 Amazon Coins

Go to Digital Music (Shop by Department) and tap on an item as if to buy it. On the right tap on More Options, then tap on Add Gift Card or Promotion Code. Balance isn't necessarily just for music.

The 400 coins are worth £4.

The cheapest apps seem to be around 50p. I chose what I spent my 400 on very carefully so I had just 3 coins left.

No, you can only use them for apps, games and in-app items.
