uvmy4BRATs dug into the firmware and found that there are offers preloaded on there. It sounds like there is a timing mechanism for their release.
That, plus updates were always installed when your Kindle next went into sleep mode. Perhaps the special offers are the same way; downloaded when your WiFi is on... activated/released the next time your Kindle goes into sleep mode.

btw, I think the Visa Bestseller ($10 credit) offer is open to everyone, not just KSO users. Thought I'd just throw that out there

4. For current Kindle with Special Offers owners only.

I've noticed a pattern about the release dates for these offers. So far, Amazon is releasing them every four days. Of the initial seven offers Amazon revealed, they've already released four of them.

Still to be released on that list are the Audible books, Roku Player, and Amazon Rewards Visa Card.

Quote:
You'll receive special offers directly on your Kindle. Examples of the special offers that will be available in the initial weeks include:
  • $10 for $20 Amazon.com Gift Card
  • $6 for 6 Audible Books (normally $68)
  • $1 for an album in the Amazon MP3 Store (choose from over 1 million albums)
  • $10 for $30 of products in the Amazon Denim Shop or Amazon Swim Shop
  • Free $100 Amazon.com Gift Card when you get an Amazon Rewards Visa Card
  • Buy one of 30 Kindle bestsellers with your Visa card and get $10 Amazon.com credit
  • 50% off Roku Streaming Player (normally $99)

I bought a book from their bestseller list (unfortunately I'd already read/purchased most of them, but I found one that looks like it might be interesting -- figured it's worth the risk since it was $5, and the offer was for a $10 credit), but I still haven't seen a confirmation of the $10 credit. Does it show up in my account somewhere? Should I have received a confirmation? Should I be contacting Amazon?

For now, do nothing. It'll appear as a credit on your account after the promo is over (May 21) and no later than Jun 30.

3. A $10 Amazon promotional credit will be applied to your account at the end of the offer period, but in no event later than June 30, 2011.
