Thanks to Amazin Free App of the Day Notifier by XDA forum member cody_04l, you can now set up a notification to alert you to check the Appstore at a predetermined time.

Clicking on the notification will dismiss the notification and open the Amazon Appstore app where you can download the app.
To ensure that you will never miss another Free App of the Day, be sure to continue on to the application thread.
