I have been very busy researching, testing, and trying out the new Amazon Coins!
If you haven't yet visited the app store today (or checked your email), Amazon has given out 500 FREE coins (that's $5.00 free dollars) to all Kindle Fire owners (within the U.S.)! SWEET!
These coins are for use in Amazon's App Store to purchase apps, games, and any in-app content.
After several hours of work I've put together this detailed article to show how to use your coins, buy more, and check your balance. (Whew! I'm worn out and need a nap.)
So take some time to read through this article all about Amazon's New Coin System, especially the IMPORTANT NOTE at the very bottom which covers a few details you'll want to be aware of.
Have fun spending your free money! -Rachel

It's been awhile since I last posted and that's because I've been working for several days on not one, but TWO new tutorials! And they are worth the wait.
Did you know you can read free library books on your Kindle Fire? How about listening to free audio books on your Kindle Fire? Yep, you can!
It's actually fairly easy to do, too. All you need is a library card and online account for a library or school that offers eBooks and/or eAudio books.
There are over 22,000 libraries and schools around the world that use the system explained in my articles, so odds are you'll have a local library with free books and audio books just waiting to be downloaded onto your Kindle Fire!
These two tutorials will guide you step-by-step through the process of accessing your local library (or school) so you can find, download, and read free books and listen to free audio books!
Here's my latest article all about Connecting Your Kindle Fire to a TV!
This Kindle Fire tutorial explains why this is such a cool idea (like watching movies, TV shows, playing music, games, etc) and then it shows you how to do it.
These easy-to-follow instructions will help you hook up your Kindle Fire to your TV in no time!
I loving winning contests and giveaways, don't you?

My latest article is all about the benefits of getting a Kindle Fire Warranty! Did you know Amazon offered an extra two year warranty for their tablet? Did you know it comes with accident protection?

So if you'd like additional protection and "insurance" for your fun toy, check out all the benefits of buying this Kindle Fire Warranty. But HURRY your tablet only qualifies for a certain amount of time!

Just a note regarding Amazon's new low price of their Kindle Fire HD 8.9"!
If you purchased an 8.9" a few weeks before the new lower price, be sure to contact Amazon Support for a refund! Getting that $30 or $100 back in your pocket is worth the hassle!
Here's the page over on Amazon and if you want to contact support, click Help at the top and then the yellow button that says "Contact Us".
I'm so excited to announce my latest Kindle Fire giveaway where you can enter for a chance to win a new Kindle Fire HD!!
Even if you already have a Kindle Fire I bet you know someone who could use one, maybe a child, parent, spouse, or even a really close friend!
There are several ways to earn extra entries in this new giveaway, including a super easy option to earn FIVE extra entries just by watching and voting for a 1-minute video I made!
The video is a quick timeline of how I was able to turn my passion for the Kindle Fire into this fun, yet profitable website. I even typed up a page all about My SBI! Journey that explains in detail the history of my business failures and later my success with the help of an awesome system called Site Build It! (SBI!).
I might even be giving away a SECOND Kindle Fire (details are on my giveaway page) so get to it and enter my newest giveaway for a chance to win a Kindle Fire HD!! (Good luck!)
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Hey everyone, I've had a few visitors ask me if the giveaway is open to non-US residents. I did some research and unfortunately, to keep the giveaway legal, I need to keep it restricted to US residents only. :( I'm so sorry!
I wish legal stuff wasn't so difficult so we could hold giveaways for international entrants. I've updated my giveaway pages to reflect this. I wish I could open it up to all of you but I don't want to get stung with legal issues.
Thanks for understanding.
