$5 Credit on Amazon MP3s

December 3, 2008

Another cool holiday promotion from Amazon, which is offering a $5 MP3 credit for each $25 worth of product(s) from their Music CD, Audio/Video, Camera, Photo & Video, Office Products, PC or Wireless stores. 

So basically you buy a gift or two from this section and the good folks at Amazon send you a credit for five or so free (and DRM-free) songs from their bottomless MP3 store.

May we suggest this USB Hidden Flash Drive Watch. Or perhaps this handy Nike Workout Assistant Kit for iPods. Better yet, give those free Amazon tunes a home with this $30 MP3 player:
