I love great deals (as most people do) and I am frequent visitor of the Cheapskate. Today,(well technically yesterday) he tells us that by downloading Big Kahuna Reef for free, via Amazon, you will also get a free five dollar MP3 credit to use in the Amazon MP3 store. The credit can be used for individual tracks or 5 dollars off any MP3 album.
If you are one of the 8 people who still dont own a copy of Coldplay’s Viva La Vida, Prospekts March Special Edition was released today and is only $2.99. This wont last more than a day or two. I recommend getting your groove on to a little Rodrigo Y Gabriela. Wait till you see this duo from Mexico that grew up in Ireland cover Led Zeppelin and Metallica in consecutive tracks, September 8 can not come soon enough!
The only catch is you must have an Amazon account to download the game, but you dont have to install it to get the MP3 downloads, nor do you have to have a PC even though the game is for XP (or Vista). Though you only have through the end of September to redeem your MP3 credits. In exchange for a couple of minutes of your time, Amazon will pay you five bucks in MP3 currency… if only I could get the same value for my day job!
