This morning while looking at the Manage Your Kindle page, I noticed something new, something wacky, exciting, and awesome.
If you are one of the lucky ones to own a Kindle with Special Offers, you know that you paid a little less at the time of purchase for your Kindle, and in return have been rewarded with Sponsored Screensavers and Special Offers.
Now, you can add Special Offers to your Kindle, Free! So far there has been no Press Release from Amazon about this, but I was able to find the official Amazon Help page for Special Offers on Your Kindle. Thank you Google!
Here is How to Add Special Offers
Step 1: Go the MYK page: http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle
Step 2: Look on the left side of the page, and click Manage Your Devices
Step 3: View the Special Offers column next to your Kindle, and click “edit” to change from Unsubscribed to Subscribed
When I added the Special Offers to my Kindle Keyboard 3G, they appeared within just a few seconds. You may find you need to turn your wireless off and back on again, or toggle the sleep switch to give your Kindle a short nap.
I also tested unsubscribing, which was just as quick and easy. Since I paid full price for my Kindle, there is no fee to unsubscribe. I really do want the deals, so I then also resubscribed and presto, the offers reappeared again. You can basically subscribe and unsubscribe at will. How awesome!
Which Kindle is Eligible?
Special Offers are available on Kindle Keyboard, Kindle Keyboard 3G, Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Touch 3G.
If you have been curious about the offers, this is the perfect way to give it a try. After you have enabled the Offers, you can find them by going to Menu, View Special Offers.
