I think it's great you're keeping a running tally of the adjusted KSO price, but just to be a stickler... you can't really subtract the entire $10 (for the first offer in the OP) from the price of the KSO, now can you? You did have to purchase a book to get that $10 credit.

Hey, welcome to the group.

Glad you're taking advantage of these offers. I'm doing the same and my KSO is now down to $94. Eventually, it'll be free.

I can, because it was a book on a gift list that I was going to pay full price for anyway.

If I take advantage of any offers for items I had no intention of buying, I won't take any discount off the KSO. I'll just consider the discount as savings on the item purchased.

Thanks for bringing that point up, because it needed to be made.

Yes this sounds like it's the way to go for the wifi model for now on. Ads are not in any way hindering your ability to read books and you get some nice offers as well!

I agree. I would buy it based on this:

Quote:
You can also set your personal Kindle Screensaver Preferences from your Manage Your Kindle page, to give us hints on the style and types of sponsored screensavers you prefer. For example, you can indicate that you'd like to see more or fewer screensavers that include elements such as landscapes and scenery, architecture, travel images, photography, and illustrations. Together, AdMash voting and Kindle Screensaver Preferences help us select the most attractive and engaging sponsored screensavers to display on your Kindle.

This would be a good thread to be stickied. I see it being updated regularly like the free books thread. If people see what offers are being made they might be more willing to buy this version.

Just a thought.

Does anyone know whether the advertisments are country-specific? That is, if I buy this version of the Kindle and use it in Australia will I get American ads?

Kindle with Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers is only available in the U.S.

So yes, you'd only get U.S. ads (and I'm not even sure you'd be able to take advantage of the offers out of the country)

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't order the cover with mine, as I was still doing research as to which cover I was going to purchase. I've decided on the Amazon lighted cover, and was going to order it tonight, but I'll hold off a bit now and wait for the 50% off offer to pop up.

Thanks again!

New offer. I pulled my Kindle out after midnight and noticed a new screensaver. My Kindle was in sleep mode with WiFi off. Yet, they still pushed the offer onto my device. How considerate of them.

Now to the offer:

$1 for an album in the Amazon MP3 store (choose from over 1 million albums priced between $1.01 and $9.00).Maximumn discount is $8. Offer must be claimed by May 8, 2011 and redeemed by Aug 8,2011.

Once I take advantage of this offer, I'll subtract another $8 off the purchase price of my KSO; which will bring it down to $86. Still on track to a free Kindle.

luvmy4BRATs dug into the firmware and found that there are offers preloaded on there. It sounds like there is a timing mechanism for their release.
