As a non-Kindle person (for now) the Special Offers deal looks to me like there's a small negative (ads below the screensaver) and a large positive (discounted Kindle, many discounts on products carried by Amazon that I'd buy anyway).
My Garmin GPS has some non-intrusive ads but in return I get free real-time traffic - a worthwhile tradeoff.
I see the Kindle Special Offers deal the same way.
