I think if the advertisements are clearly advertisements, that's OK. Any store can promote itself or its products.
However, if they start posting fake reviews of their Kindle ereaders in an attempt to sell them, or in some other way try to disguise their advertisements so that customers are not aware they're reading an ad, that should be against the rules.
