Amazon will make one of its US-based customers extremely happy, thanks to a new "Beat the Heat" sweepstakes where the lucky winner will get $2,500 in Amazon gift cards.

That amount of credit should be enough to buy a bunch of the company's Kindle Fire tablets or its Fire TV set-top box. It can even let the winner buy a few unlocked units of the newly launch Amazon Fire Phone. Of course, the gift cards can be used to buy anything that's sold on Amazon's website.

The contest runs from now until August 3. Eligible contestants can enter by following the official Amazon Twitter feed or by liking its Facebook page, along with the name and address on their personal Amazon account. If you live in the US do you plan to enter this contest?
