Amazon's Instant Video for Prime members is already a few weeks old, but if you haven't yet taken the time to stream a movie or TV show, here's some incentive. Amazon is offering up 500 free Amazon coins when you stream your first movie or show from your Android phone. The coins carry a value of $5 in total and will be added to your Amazon Appstore account, where you can then redeem them for apps & games.

To take advantage of the promo, which runs through October 16th, you just need to do the following:

  • Download the Amazon app for Android phones
  • Visit Prime Instant Video player from within the Amazon app by tapping the menu icon, and selecting Prime Instant Video from the menu
  • Find what you'd like to watch, and tap Play - you'll be prompted to make a one-time install of the Prime Instant Video player to enable playback
  • Tap Open after installing the Prime Instant Video player and then tap Play
  • You will receive your 500 Free Amazon Coins within 72 hours of streaming your movie or TV show from your Android phone

That's all there is to it. For more official details, head to Amazon and scope out the fine print.
