According to Jeff Scott from 148Apps, Apple is testing out promo codes for in-app purchases, based on a current promotion by EA Mobile and Fire Monkeys, which is allowing users (in the USA only) to receive 10 free gold (worth $1.99) by redeeming a promo code at this link from your iOS device.

Scott has shared what your iOS device looks like once you redeem an in-app purchase promo code and also what happens when you don’t have the app installed, which you are then prompted to install it:

    Ah, I get that. Earn the gold, don’t ask me to buy gold – sort of thing. Gaming purist, I dig that.
