Kindle special offers
As always, I've ordered my Kindle Fire HD the day it was announced.
On that very first day, Amazon didn't offer the option w/o "special offers".
So I've got the one with special offers.
I didn't find them too intrusive, but quite frankly a bit boring (only 6 different offers over 30 days).
Unfortunately, I didn't know how to get rid or them.
In the US, it's simple. Directly in "manage your Kindle", you can opt out for a fee of $ 15 (or something like that).
But I don't find this very same setting in Amazon Germany.
I actually had considered, ordering another Kindle Fire HD to replace the "tainted one".
But then I stumbled over a comment from Amazon: "If you don't want to have the special offers anymore, please contact customer support".
I did so. I even didn't have to type any request. The pull-down menus already had been prepared for this.
I've sent my request ca. 8 pm CET. About 90 minutes (!!!) later I got the email: "As per your request, I've removed the special offers".
Just checked it out: Gone!
Just wanted to let you know: Even if the setting "remove special offers" is missing in your Amazon account, it still will be done by Amazon support on your request.
