If your Kindle has ads or “Special Offers” showing onscreen, it’s because you made a deal. You chose to save money on your Kindle’s purchase price by accepting the “With Special Offers” discount. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but now you’re sick of the ads.
The good news: You can back out of this deal. The bad news: It’s going to cost you.
Why does my Kindle have Special Offers?
You might not have given this much thought when you bought your Kindle, but Amazon offers a lower price for the E-reader if you accept Special Offers. As Amazon explains, “If your Fire tablet or Kindle e-reader includes Special Offers, you’ll receive Sponsored Screensavers and special offers, including personalized advertising, from Amazon directly on your device.”
