Amazon recognizes that many people have purchased a Kindle e-reader or received one as a gift for Christmas. In order to populate your new device, or an old one, Amazon is running a promotion. If you spend $20 on Kindle ebooks, you will receive $5 in credit to your account. This deal is only running from December 27th to December 31st, so time is of the essence.
You can basically spend $20 on anything Amazon sells in their Kindle Store. Once you have reached the threshold, your ebook credit expires 21 days after it is applied to your account. Within 4 days of activating the offer and spending the specified amount on Kindle eBooks, you will receive an e-mail from Amazon that indicates that the promotional credit has been applied to your customer account. The e-mail will also provide instructions on how to redeem the promotional credit. You can view your available eBook credit balance on any Kindle eBook detail page.
