Cheap Hearthstone card packs when purchased with Amazon coins @ Battlenet

Found 23rd Dec 2014
As people who play Hearthstone will know, the game has just launched on Android tablets. It is also available through the Amazon app store, who are running a promotion that refunds half the cost of card packs and arena entries in Amazon coins.

The promotion states that the offer is only on the 15 and 40 bundles, but for the past few days I have been using my £5 bespoke voucher to purchase multiple sets of 2 packs for 199 Amazon coins, and getting 100 coins refunded each time. As I had over 100 coins in my balance already, it worked out that I received 20 packs for a fiver.

Even if you buy the coins for the going rate, you will still be getting the packs at almost half price.

If you don't have an Android tablet, you can always do what I did, and install DuOS (download here - http://www.amiduos.com/). This emulator comes with Amazon appstore preloaded.

To log into the my account on the app, I had to remove the authenticator from my account, as the login screen just kept looping when I entered my credentials.

The promo material states this is a limited offer, but it doesn't have an end date listed. So get those GvG packs while they are available cheaply!

Is there someone just floating through voting cold for no reason?

I would seriously love to know where I could buy the packs more cheaply.

Probably worth mentioning that there is a slight lag in getting your coins refunded.

It will confirm the refund when you make the purchase, and the balance normally updates within a minute.

Even when you buy packs with coins you get some coins back. I didn't work it out properly and ended up spending far more than I wanted to. But nevermind.

I bought the coins and then used coins for the packs. It is £9 for 1000 coins, so it works out even better.

I felt that my post was getting a bit long and needy though

I ended up spending like £40 before realising you get coins back on packs bought with coins, which is not the spend I had in mind. But never mind, got over 60 packs and the full Naxx adventure.

Can you explain further what you mean? I thought the 50% discount thing is over, and only lists as 'up to 20%' now. How are you getting this offer?

The discount on coin packages from Amazon is separate.

Within the Hearthstone app is you currently receive 50% the value of your purchase back in Amazon coins. So if you have 1000 coins, and buy 2 packs for 199 coins, you will receive 100 back, taking your balance to 901 coins. The process can be repeated until you have 109 coins (in this example anyway).

As the Amazon coins are discounted, it becomes a slightly better deal to buy those first, rather than using cash to purchase items initially.

Explanation above this post. I forgot to hit reply

And you've done this like, today? Cause I think it ended over the weekend. Also, where are you getting your £5 vouchers? Do you think this would work on 60 packs?

I did it yesterday. There wasn't a 60 bundle pack as I recall, only went up to 40 on the app.

I would say stick to 40 to be safe.

The £5 amazon voucher is the Bespoke offer that is running periodically this past week. I don't know if it will pop up again, but it is worth keeping an eye out for it.

Yeah I'm pretty sure this ended early yesterday, but I'll check soon. If you could quickly check that'd be great. I missed the deal unfortunately, don't want to get my hopes up with this. Hopefully it'll come back some time in the future.

Nah, I did this yesterday evening.

The link takes you to the promotional page which shows it be current.

I have bought the packs that I intend to, so I won't be buying any more.

I thought that you of all people would be onto this deal Jay

Not sure what's going on but I had 2601 coins on my account from various things and somehow I've managed to buy 121 packs and still have 1206 coins left (just short of another 15 pack) so thanks op!

I hope you haven't used cash instead of coins. It sounds a bit too good to be true.

Just paid £9, got 18 packs. Used the 2 pack offer at 199 coins so I could pick between classic and GvG.

Thanks OP!

Edit: Bad math

You can run DuOS to get it. The download is from here amiduos.com/. I don't have a tablet, so this is what I did.

Just panicked rushed to check my balance and nothing has been taken, I'll take it as a last minute good luck thing for the year (there will be no legendaries I'm sure)

Great deal - just picked up 50 cards for £21! You can mix & match GvG and regular packs too.

Thanks OP xD

Sweet!

Don't get me started on legendaries. I had two gvg legendaries, and the third was a duplicate.

To take advantage of the offer on an Android tablet, you have to:
1) Install Amazon App Store (if you don't already have it)
2) Search for Hearthstone in the Amazon App Store, and install through that app.
3) Log into Hearthstone, making sure you have selected the Europe region. This option is in the top right corner of the login screen.
4) Select shop.
5) Buy required bundle. Half the value of the bundle should be refunded in Amazon coins.

The link on the deal is just for information on the promotion, all the purchases have to take place within the Heartstone client, and you have to have installed the client through Amazon App Store.

Apologies for any confusion.

Seems to be over. Just bought some packs with no refund applied.

Anyone able to confirm that this has stopped?

Cheers

I can confirm that it's expired now

I've ordered 3 days ago a 40 card pack, it shows on my amazon account but I got no coins back...
