This should probably go in the Kindle Fire forum. Now KFs are SOs we will need a thread there. Not many KF users visit the main forum unless they own a regular Kindle too.

I'd hate to have to try to keep up with both threads....

The paperwhites will also have their own offers, I suspect

Not a problem the specific Kindle Fire offers can be posted in both forums.

Just claimed this.

$5 in MP3 and $5 in instant video for totally free is pretty cool. Reminds me of when the e-ink kindles used to be actual offers instead of just ads.

I suspect that Amazon only brought back the offers temporarily during this launch period to dispel the idea that all of the "special offers" are just ads (like you pointed out) so that people might buy them for the special offers, and that the offers will die off in a month or two and won't come back until it's time to launch new Kindles. I also fear that the new offers as a whole won't be as good as the old offers. I certainly hope that I'm wrong about both of these because the old offers were good.

There were some fantastic deals on the old ones (paid for every Kindle in my account, essentially). On the other hand, fraud was rife - people were selling the coupon codes on the internet, for a while (until they started locking codes to accounts).

Bypassing the need to get a code then apply is a good idea (for them and the consumer both -- you don't lose the email and they drop support calls). However, you also don't get any notice in email with the offer or the value of the credit (which is harder to check on from the Fire itself, for most people) and you don't then have that email as a reminder - you have to remember to keep up with the document they deliver to that particular kindle, which has the end date on the offers.

Btw, today's goldbox deal is a lot of $3.99+ albums....

The old offers definitely more than paid for my Kindle and were a large part of the reason why I even bought a Kindle in the first place. Hopefully Amazon will make me excited to check for special offers again.

Odd one on just my touch today - order it and you get a link to a 15% off coupon on some gourmet dog food.

No, and it is annoying, as there is a new release I want to buy with the credit.
