Unable to install Amazon Appstore

I just recently purchased my Galaxy Tab S6.  I love it's ease of use, construction and the speed ain't too bad either.  However, since I'm a convert from Amazon Kindle Fire HD, I was hoping to transfer my Amazon Game Apps to use on the new tablet.  However, every time I go to amazon.com/getappstore, I see the page telling you to click on a link or have it emailed to you.  The tablet does nothing.  There's no button on the page to actually download the Appstore.  Each time I keep going around and around in a circle.  The Settings aren't much help either because I don't see where to tell the system that it's ok to install 3rd party apps.  I can't recall ever having been so frustrated with a Samsung device.  I have the Galaxy Note 10+ and I'm hoping to get them to work with each other; especially when I'm at work.  That was really the whole reason to purchase the tablet.  Amazon is good with hardware (tablets) for reading and even viewing video.  However, what's under the hood, CPU power, memory, etc I find truly lacking.  Never again will I buy a Kindle, I'll always stick with Samsung tablets.  

But I'm getting off track.  I need to get this Amazon Appstore issue resolved.  Can anyone help?

 

Thanks in advance.

Just Google "Amazon Appstore APK".  Make sure you first allow Chrome to install from unknown sources then once the Amazon Appstore is installed you'll have to do the same for that. I literally just finished the process because there was one specific app I want on my tablet that I had purchased. Works like a charm.

Have you tried downloading it through the Google Play Store? https://play.google.com/store/search?q=Amazon%20appstore

Unfortunately, there is NO Amazon Appstore within Google Play.  There are Amazon apps ad nauseum, but not the specific "Amazon Appstore".  However, I found a solution via another site (following a Google search).  I went to a site for downloading .apk files.  I found a slightly older version of the Amazon Appstore and got it to install.  However, it works best if the tablet is NOT in Dex mode.  When in non-Dex mode, the application shows up in the proper orientation and I'm now able to install Amazon apps and also access my existing Amazon coins, etc.  That was the entire point.  I had apps and coins (which represent a monetary value) which had been on my Kindle Fire HD 10".  Once I got the Samsung configured in the way I wanted it, I could reset the Kindle to factory defaults.  However, I couldn't do that until my Amazon apps and coins were successfully transferred to the new machine.

 

Thus the simple answer is to go to a site like (https://apkpure.com/ ) and download the Amazon Appstore from there.  Thanks to all for checking it out and trying to assist.  I was blessed with truly dumb luck to find a solution on my own.  However, I hope that it can help someone else.

 

LLAP,
