Buy a book on the Windows Store and score $5 in free credit
If you have yet to give the relatively new Books category a gander in the Windows Store, Microsoft is looking to reel you in with a new deal. Right now, the company is offering $5 in Windows Store credit with any book purchase from the Store.

While the offer applies to book purchases, the good news is that the credit itself should work store-wide. That means you can use the credit on apps, music, TV shows, or anything else on the Windows Store.
As the fine print notes, there are a couple of caveats worth noting, however. First, the offer is only set to run through June 30, so you'll want to act sooner rather than later. Second, a code for the credit will be sent to your email and you must redeem it by August 15 and use the credit within 90 days. Lastly, this looks to be U.S. only, at least for now.
Unfortunately, this doesn't work with free books, and you'll obviously want to find the cheapest book possible if you're looking to make money off the deal. Still, it's not a bad offer, particularly if you have yet to check out the Book section of the Windows Store since it was launched with the Creators Update.
