    Get a great paid app for free every day, at Amazon Appstore for Android. http://amzn.to/fYUKUA

    A different free app is offered each day starting at midnight Pacific time.

    Couple of notes:
    You'll need to download the Amazon App Store from amazon's website or have the link emailed/texted to you phone as (obviously) this is not available on the Google Market.
    If you're on AT&T and you don't have an Aria, an Infuse, an Inspire 4G, a Captivate or an Atrix updated to Gingerbread you'll be unable to install via the Amazon App Store and you'll have to resort to Android Debug Bridge.
    Not all apps are guaranteed to work but if they don't...Amazon will promptly refund your money(a huge advantage over Google's model IMHO as google leaves individual devs to handle tech support beyond the 30 minute grace period).
    You can get some really cool stuff on the Amazon App Store on the free day(swiftkey x, plants vs zombies and trillian are some things i've gotten for free) but apps gotten from the Amazon App Store are not updated as frequently due to Amazon's approval process.
    Even on non free days you can get some good deals(ex Soundhound Infinite is $2 vs $4 on the google market)

    A nice thing about Amazon's system is that you can "purchase" a free app from the store and have the link emailed to you, but you don't actually have to install it that same day in order to get it free. The free purchase takes place when you request it from the website -- not when you actually install it.

    So I usually request the free apps from my PC by providing my email address, receive the link by email right away, and then download/install the app from my phone whenever it's convenient for me.
