Celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th Anniversary w/ free game downloads, exclusive gear, more


Today is the 25th Anniversary of the release of Sonic the Hedgehog. This popular title first released back in 1991 and since developed quite the cult following as it has hit nearly every platform in some way. Amazon is celebrating this milestone by offering a selection of merchandise, games and more including some sweet exclusive t-shirts.

One of my personal favorite items from this sale is the upcoming Vandor Sonic Tin Lunch Box for $12.18 (Reg. $17). It’s set to ship this fall but you can lock-in the discounted pricing today. Another top-pick is this Sonic Boom plush for $11 (Reg. $15).

You’ll also want to be sure to check out these exclusive t-shirts priced from $19.99 Prime shipped. The official 25th anniversary logo t-shirt in multiple colors for $23.99 is pretty sweet. The Let’s Go Fast tee is another classic for $19.99.

One last thing to highlight is that Android users can download Sonic Dash from Amazon Underground for free. Be sure to fill out the in-game sweepstakes form before the end of the month to enter to win a $2,500 gift card. Additionally, anyone that collects 2,500 in-game Amazon boxes in the coming days will receive a $10 Amazon credit. More details here.

Head over to the Sonic 25th Anniversary Hub for even deals and exclusive promotions.

Also, be sure to check out this awesome discounted Nintendo gear from Vans, 20% off today.

I downloaded Sonic Dash on Amazon Underground, but I don’t see the contest I read about.

In order to participate in the Amazon.com and Sonic Dash promotion and sweepstakes, you must be at least 18 years of age or older and a resident of the United States. If this is your first time playing Sonic Dash, you must complete one run (tutorial) before the sweepstakes and Amazon boxes appear in your game.

You will also need to make sure you have an active connection to the internet on your device through your cell phone provider or Wi-Fi. Please make sure that you also have the latest version of Sonic Dash as of June 23rd.

I don’t see the Amazon boxes? How long does it take them to show up?

First make sure that you have an active internet connection in order to experience this special in-game event. If this is your first time playing Sonic Dash, you will need to complete one run and then you will see a notification inside the game for the sweepstakes. Upon starting your second run, you should begin to see the Amazon delivery boxes immediately. You will need to collect 2,500 Amazon delivery boxes and fill out the in-game form in order to receive your $10 Amazon.com gift card.

This experience is only available while supplies last, so customers that start to play after all Gift Cards have been distributed may not see the Amazon boxes.
