So this post is dedicated to all those who are facing similar issues and getting the most famous error from Amazon Appstore which says "Not available in your region".

Windows PC and Apple Mac users - Follow the steps mentioned on our latest post Free VPN Client for PC and Mac.

Alternatively you can also connect to Amazon site from your Android using VPN connection. To setup VPN on your android device follow out post Best free working Android VPN Service (Get 1.5 GB free per month)
STEP 3: On the Amazon Appstore page itself you will see 'Get App' button for the Free App of the day. Just go ahead and click that.

STEP 4: As soon as you hit Get App button, The page gets refreshed and shows you a message saying 'Thanks, you now own the blah blah App and see you order details'. Congratulations you just got the app.

STEP 5: Now onto your mobile Open Appstore, press Menu and go to My Apps. You will now see the 'Free App of the Day' in Apps to Downlaod and Install list. Now just tap 'Install' to download and install the app on you Android.
