How to Purchase Hearthstone Packs at a Discount Through Amazon

Hearthstone PacksLooking to buy Hearthstone packs on the cheap? Fortunately, there is a way you can save some money. Normally, if you buy packs through Blizzard’s in-game store, it costs $50 for 40 packs. But, there’s also a lesser known way to purchase packs at a discount, by buying Amazon Coins.

Amazon Coins are a virtual currency that can be used to purchase eligible apps, games and digital in-app items on Amazon devices, the Amazon Appstore for Android and Amazon’s website. Conveniently, you can also use Amazon Coins to purchase Hearthstone packs.


Prices as of March 13

Cost of Coins # Amazon Coins # of Packs Cost per Pack Savings
$47.50 5,000 40 $1.19 5%
$85.00 10,000 80 $1.06 15%
$375.00 50,000 427 $0.94 25%
So, by using Amazon Coins, which you can purchase here, you can get 80 packs for about $85 ($1.06/pack), saving you 15%. Or save 25% and get 427 packs for $375 ($0.94 per pack) by buying 50,000 Amazon Coins.

Some notes:

  • You must use an Android device in order for this deal to work. If you don’t have one, one option is to borrow a friend’s temporarily. Another option, if you have a decent computer and internet connection, is to use an Android emulator.
  • Amazon Coins can also be used to purchase Arena entries (or expansions), in addition to packs
  • You must also install Hearthstone via the Amazon Appstore so that when you go to buy packs, Amazon Coins are listed as another payment option. If Hearthstone is already installed on your Android device via Google Play, uninstall it (and the battle.net authenticator app from Google Play) before installing the version from the Amazon Appstore. (Some people have reported problems with trying to reinstall HS from the Amazon Appstore directly over the Google Play Hearthstone installation.)

Pre-Purchase The Witchwood at a Discount!

Set to release on April 12, the newest expansion, The Witchwood, is currently available for pre-purchase on Blizzard’s store for $49.99 for 70 packs. As Amazon Coins can be used towards any in-game purchase, you can save even more when you use them to purchase the pre-release bundle. This means you buy the pre-release with 5,000 Amazon Coins (which currently cost $47.50), so that the cost works out to $47.50 for 70 packs (a staggeringly low 68 cents per pack).

Since Amazon Coins can be used on any in-game content, you can also use them to purchase prior adventures or packs for previous expansions still available in the shop. It’s a great way to save up to 25% on packs, especially if you need more cards to build some OG decks.



Summary

In short, to buy discounted packs:

  1. Buy discounted Amazon Coins,
  2. Make sure that you have Hearthstone installed on your Android device via the Amazon Appstore. (If you have Hearthstone already installed via Google Play, completely uninstall it, then install via the Amazon Appstore.)
  3. Now, when you go to the Hearthstone in-game store, the option to purchase packs using Coins should show up. If your purchase is eligible to earn a bonus coin refund, it will also tell you as as part of the payment process.

That’s it!
