How to get the Single Player of Rise of Shadows FREE with your Preorder

Note: The preorder for Rise of Shadows is no longer available. BUT you can still save money on all your Rise of Shadows purchases by using the methods below. Essentially, you’ll save $19 for every $100 you spend. You can reinvest that money in the single player when it releases or in more packs. It’s up to you! 🙂

I stumbled across a very hidden promo with Amazon Coins that can get you the complete upcoming Single Player content for Rise of Shadows for FREE. There are some steps to go through, but every step is clean. Unfortunately, this only applies to people who have not yet preordered. If you’ve been on the fence about whether to preorder or not, read on to see how it works.

This is all done through Amazon Coins, which is Amazon’s currency for paying in their Appstore. Think of it like the Starbucks app (if you’re familiar with that) where you load up your card and then pay with what’s on there to get your beverage of choice. 1 Amazon Coin is equivalent to 1 cent USD, so 100 coins is $1 and 10,000 coins is $100.00.

In order to take advantage of this, you are going to have to have access to the Amazon Appstore, which is exclusively available on the Android platform. If you have an Android phone, this is quite simple. If you don’t, you’ll need to setup an emulator to access it. I did this on my Mac laptop before getting an Android phone.

If you have an Android device… If you have Hearthstone already installed on your phone/tablet from the Google Play store, you’ll need to delete it first. Then download the Amazon Appstore App. Open it, and install Hearthstone from there. This version of Hearthstone allows you to pay for all in-game transactions using Amazon Coins.

If you don’t have an Android device… Downloading an emulator is simpler than you think. Big Nox has a free download that’s clean and can be used on either Mac or PC. After you have it downloaded and setup, download the Amazon Appstore App. Open it, and install Hearthstone from there.

Now, you’ll need to purchase your Amazon Coins to be able to purchase the preorder. Amazon gives you a discount on amount of Coins you get upfront. So you can (as of this writing) purchase 10,000 coins ($100 value) for only $81 USD. Purchase the Amazon Coins, and there’s only one step left to get the maximum value.

Go into the Hearthstone app on your installed Android device/emulator, and go to the Shop. Choose the $80 Mega Bundle for Rise of Shadows, and when you tap “Buy,” you should see a prompt come up showing your Amazon Coins balance. Purchase, and you’ll still have 2000 Amazon Coins waiting for you when the Single Player releases in May.

If you want to go ALL in, you can purchase 2 bundles of 2,500 Amazon Coins for $21 each to get the 50 pack bundle also and save $8 in the process–almost enough to buy the Week 1 “9 packs and an arena ticket” bundle!

By the way, these savings can also carry over to any additional pack purchases that you make after Rise of Shadows releases! If you purchase 10,000 coins at a time, you can purchase 2 40-pack bundles for 4,999 coins each. The credit costs you $81 instead of the $100 you’d be spending in-game, so you’re saving $19 off every 80 packs you purchase. So on Tuesday if you have the itch to buy more packs, get your Amazon Coins first so that you can save.

That’s it! This is the process I used for preordering and saving some money to get ready for the latest Hearthstone expansion. Follow me on Twitter at @andrewisliving and subscribe to The Happy Hearthstone podcast to get more updates about Hearthstone.
