Samsung has a special version of the Amazon Kindle e-reader app called “Kindle for Samsung”. You can only install it from Samsung’s app store, which they call, “Galaxy Apps”. It’s pre-installed on your Galaxy S8, or any other recent Samsung device, including their excellent line of tablets.
You can install this app even if you already have the regular Kindle app installed from Google Play store or the Amazon App store.
Each month, there are four books to choose from, representing a variety of genres. You will be able to choose one free book. The available books show up on the first of each month and are available for the entire month.
To find the offer for the month, open the Kindle for Samsung app. Now, from within the app, touch the menu button in the top-left corner of your screen; it is designated by three horizontal lines. Next, choose the option titled, “Samsung Book Deals”; it’s fifth down from the top. You will likely initially see only three books, but you can slide those over to see the fourth offering. Clicking on the book’s cover will give you a detailed description of that book and the ability to redeem that month’s offer. Once you purchase your month’s quota of free books, (one book per month), you will lose the ability to purchase the other three for free, however, they are often still offered at a heavily discounted rate. Many of the books I’ve seen can be purchased for less than two dollars, while the full retail price might be twelve to fifteen dollars.
Once you purchase the book, (for free), it will show up permanently in your Kindle library and will be available on all of your devices that have access to Kindle. Your reading progress will be saved and synced across devices. As an example, you can begin reading your free e-book on your Galaxy S8 as soon as you acquire it, then pick up where you left off on your Kindle. You do not need to use the Kindle for Samsung app to read it at all, merely for the original purchase.
You may find it helpful to set a monthly reminder to come back at the beginning of each month to see the new selections. Samsung has a useful app for that appropriately named, “Reminders”.
