amazonAmazon is stepping up its efforts to woo new customers this Christmas after announcing it will give $5 of credit for its app store to Android users who download a game or app from the Amazon Appstore between now and December 28.

The offer is good for existing or new users of the latest version (7.5) of the store — the company says it contains over 100,000 apps and games, which are available for its Kindle devices as well as regular Android smartphones and tablets.

Amazon is also running free app bundles on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

This year has been a major one for Amazon’s tablet business after it introduced the much-praised the Kindle Fire HDX range, complete with an HDX display and Mayday tech support button, which lets users summon Amazon tech support staff.
