    Hi All,
    I would like to encourage all Verizon Lumia 928 purchasers to purchase as many quality apps from the Microsoft app store as quickly as you can and to spend all of it if possible. This is a much better strategy to encourage app developers to produce quality apps for Windows phones than the stupid $100/app plan Microsoft did a few months back. That plan would just create a lot of crappy apps.

    So spend that $25 credit as soon as you can on the quality apps you want!

    Thanks

    I spent about half mine so far, even some on Windows 8 apps. There just aren't many paid apps I'm interested in at the moment, but I've got my eyes on some just over the horizon.

    Microsoft tried enticing developers to make apps by promising $100 per published app....a friend of mine got $100 for making a Windows 8 game that only had about 5 seconds of gameplay.

    I've spent as much of it as I could. Have a remaining balance of $0.70 or so.

    Going to use my Bing rewards for another $5. There's a lot of nice paid apps that I still want to grab.

    I tried redeeming mine. It didn't want to accept my IMEI.

    I find if you add the 1, submit, then remove the 1 it goes through.

    Spent mine, and I agree, we have to show devs that we are willing to pay for quality apps. If enough of us do that, we will slowly get more and more selection to choose from.

    I've been spending mine here and there. I've been looking at apps and may look at the try option to see if it's worth the buy first just to make sure the money is well spent. Most of the apps I usually find I can judge just from pictures and sometimes off reviews, but I don't always trust reviews as my needs aren't always the same.

    How do you spend it on Windows 8 apps? I assumed it was limited to Wallet on Windows Phone 8. Also, can you use it to buy music from Nokia music or Xbox music?

    It's global across your Microsoft Live account. As long as it's a Microsoft service you'd probably be able to use it.

    can you elaborate on this please? I'm having my 8x replaced under warranty with a Lumia 928 by Verizon and i'm hoping i can sign up for this $25 credit, but incase it doesn't work because it's a replacement phone, i'd like to know what you're talking about with this method... thanks in advance.

    Mine's just about spent, I think I'm going to spend the rest of it on Amazing Weather HD and Mass Effect Infiltrator.

    The adding "1" comment goes to the success some have had using the MEID instead of the IMEI. The numbers differ by one digit, which is often (but not always) a "1" at the end of one of the numbers that isn't at the end of the other.

    I've been wanting to spend mine but everytime I find an app I wouldn't mind paying for its already free.

    I'll just wait and spend some on the new Halo game in July. Then come Sept and I still have some left, I'll just start buying things I might not normally.
