The very versatile and popular Plex media app is on sale again for 99 cents at the Amazon Android-ish app store. You can use previously earned Amazon Coins to pay for it, or first do the Grand Theft Money Maker Deal (expires 6/11/14). It is also going for 99c for Google TV but it is not on sale for the Android Google Play version. Please note the Amazon version is behind the Google Play version.
The Amazon Android app store has another money maker deal. You earn 200 Amazon Coins (have the buying power of $2) for each one of these five FREE apps you get. If you previously got/installed the apps from this store, you won't earn points. If you haven't, you get 200 Coins per app. Using my account as a guinea pig, I previously got one of the five apps, so my account earned 800 points (four times 200 coins).
These are free apps, not premium-made-free-apps, so this promotion has $0 out of pocket investment. You need to have at least one Android device linked to your Amazon.com account (smartphone or tablet; doesn't matter how old as long as it can run the Amazon Android App Store app).
This is a Memorial Day weekend promotion, so don't sleep on it, get them right away. You lose nothing by getting them. You don't even have to install the apps on your device, you can get them using a web browser on a laptop/desktop computer.
Optionally, if you want to max out on app buying power, use your earned points from above to do the Grand Theft Auto Money Maker deal (expires by 6/11/14). This gets you $20 worth of app buying power. The aforelinked post explains that promotion in great detail so I won't repeat it all here.
Optionally, if you want to max out even more, check to see if any of the apps in Earn Coins Back category are of interest.

This should not be confused with the Grand Theft Money Maker deal which expires by 6/11/14.
This is a "money maker deal", in other words, you get more than you put in. You put $7 in, and you get $20 worth of buying power at the Amazon Android App Store! This is a simple but intermediate level deal. Here is a near step-by-step breakdown.
STEP #1: Buy Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for $7 or use your Existing Amazon Coins Credit. This promotion works with Amazon Coins credit, so you don't actually have to spend any out of your pocket on it! Here is a screenshot crop of my purchase...
My Amazon Coins balance was 852 before the purchase. After the purchase (San Andreas costs 699 coins), my Coins balance dropped to 153.
STEP #2: Confirmation of Order shows that you have earned 2000 Amazon Coins (100 coins = 100 pennies = $1). Screenshot below...
STEP #3: Wait for a few minutes and then visit the page of any non-free Amazon App. It will show you your Amazon Coins balance. (it won't show this on a free app). As you can see, my balance jumped from 153 to 2153 coins. Screenshot crop below...
STEP #4: Once you verify that the Coins are in your account, you can use them to buy any apps you want at the Amazon Android App Store. Of camera and photography interest, search for the names or types of apps you are interested in, or check the Best Selling Photography Paid Apps List. This also includes the $9.99 Photoshop Touch.
Some of the apps can earn you more Coins after you purchase them, so depending on which apps you pick, you may end up scoring even more in terms of Buying Power! This is the list of 5000+ apps that have Amazon Coins Bonus After Purchase promotions. Of those, about 85 of the apps that earn Bonus After Purchase are under the Photography app category.
You need to have at least one Android device linked to your Amazon.com account. It can be either a smartphone or a tablet. It doesn't need to have cellular data. Wifi-only devices are fine as well.
The device doesn't have to be compatible with the app. If buying on a web browser on a desktop/laptop computer, if it is not compatible, you will get a pop-up warning that your devices are not compatible, but you can just click on the pop-up to proceed with the purchase. (I don't know if you have an override option in a tablet/smartphone - I haven't tried that in a while).
This is a limited time promotion and per the Amazon page this expires by June 11 in 2014. If you don't see this promotion mentioned, it means the promotion expired! Screenshot example of the promotion...
UPDATE (4/29/14): Seven of the Audubon field guide apps are on sale for 99c each at the Amazon Android-y app store. This seems to be a longer term sale, it is not part of a daily deal.

If you are using the Amazon appstore ecosystem, Amazon has launched a new promotion where you earn Amazon Coins when you purchase select apps. The promotion includes 45 camera and photography apps including PicShop - Photo Editor ($2.99, earn 90 coins) and Photo Editor+ (99c, earn 30 coins) and XN Retro Pro ($1.32, earn 40 coins).

TIP: you also earn coins when you get eligible free ($0.00) apps. The individual pages for the eligible apps at the earn Amazon Coins page do not show the amount, but you do earn coins when you get the participating free apps as well. It takes a few minutes for the coins to be added to your total, but they do. Then you can use your newly earned coins to stock up on camera and photography apps!
The free iTunes iOS app for this week at Starbucks brick and mortar stores is photography app "Big Lens". Participating Starbucks stores have cards (actual printed physical cards) with individual promo codes to get the app for free at iTunes. You may find this app this week or in future weeks, depending on how individual Starbucks stores deal with the Starbucks app cards. If you want to research the app, this is its iTunes page (you have to get the free promo code at a Starbucks store, not through this link).
Among this round of eBay Deals, you can Pay $40 to get a $50 iTunes Gift Card, with free shipping, offered by Gift Card Mall. Limit 3 cards per buyer. This is a 20% discount. Not the lowest ever, but if you need to get one now and don't want to wait or search around, 20% off is better than full price :) You can use this to get Photoshop Touch and many other photography and camera control apps, photography books and camera guides in iBooks, etc. As always, eBay Deals are limited time offers with unpredictable expiration dates.
The main deal of the day at Best Buy is a plastic $100 iTunes gift card with free shipping going for $85. Store Pick-up is also available. This is not the best percentage discount, but if you were going to get an iTunes gift card right now, might as well get it for less. It can be used for many things, including photography apps (eg Photoshop Touch), photography books, etc at the iTunes store. This ends by the end of day on Friday 9/27/13.
