On the last stage (Buy (using the £2 credit and a few of your newly earned coins),) is this possible? I can buy using coins (499) or I can buy with 1-click (which I'm sure will use the £2 credit) but I can't see a way to do part and part.

I wasn't sure about it either but I just did it and it takes the coin equivalent off of your order (200 coins) so it works fine.

@nibblemonkey so you just picked pay with coins? And it only took 299 of them?

Yes, just click pay with coins

FYI, you can get the 2000 coins from other GTA games, including Vice City and III, which are cheaper = more profit

No, ONLY from San Andreas!

Great find Paul.  Thanks for the heads up.

 

Not used the Amazon store before, might give some of these a try.

Amazon App Store is worth having for the free apps each day. They have given away coins in the past. I have £28 worth at the moment :D

Thanks for the tip, Paul!

Amazing, thanks Paul.

 

I've also followed the process on the US store and bagged $13.00 worth of coins. I just wish there was a way to have both my amazon (.co.uk and .com) app stores on my phone at the same time.

Yeah, same rameses as I have an account with both too!

I've purchased the pro version of Automateit but I'm struggling with finding anything else to spend my coins on.

none of the 'Buy' (for free) apps (with 100 coins) are shown as free for me :-( only some of the apps (with 20 coins) are shown as free. even the free £2 voucher is sold out. so i now have a grand total of 180 coins!

Sounds like a rather convoluted way to spend one's time just to "earn" a few pounds of imaginary money. Wow, slow day at Modaco HQ?
