They recently changed the wording from limit one promotional code per device to limit one promotional code per customer and per device.

Call Kindle CS at 1-866-321-8851 and ask them why your special offer Kindle is being denied the offer. You bought them to get the offers and now you're being denied on one of them. Why should it matter to Amazon who redeems the offers from two of these Kindles?

Anyway, give Kindle CS a call. They have the best customer service in the entire Amazon family.

Make sure you've used the first code before trying to enter the second.

I haven't tried the new mystery offer, but on the previous ones, there was the same wording, but you could use more than one code on an account. You could not, though, enter the seconde code until you had used the first one.

Question for those with a KSO: When did the headphones offer go live? I'm looking at my KSO right now, and all I see are ads for the Kindle cloud service and ATT.

I tried contacting Amazon CS about the missing offer, but their reply basically told me that I wasn't looking hard enough for it.

Have you turned the wireless on lately? I turned mine on today and got it.

I'll guess I'll play around with it some more once I'm back on wireless at home. It usually updates automatically overnight, so it seems odd to me that it wouldn't do that this time.

Sometimes the offers are right there when I wake up my Kindle on SO days and sometimes I have to turn on wireless and then do View Special Offers. The headphones offer was just offered today. (10/04)

For me, the headphone offer popped onto my KSO+3g around noon (California time).

Earlier today I just saw the same ads you saw.

Lately, many of the offers haven't been showing up in the assets folder until quite close to the actual start date. This offer wasn't available to me until AFTER I turned WiFi on. It then downloaded. I get the feeling Amazon no longer wants us peeking into future offers.

In the past, offers would load via WiFi on your Kindle several weeks before they went active. Then at midnight of the start date, they would appear automatically in your screensavers and View Special Offers page. It wasn't even necessary for you to have an internet connection, since the files were already on your Kindle.

This offer should appear for you once your Kindle has established an internet connection. It just needs to download to your device.

Hmm, thanks for letting me know about the changes in how the KSO offers are loaded. I'm on a wi fi connection now, and I reset the Kindle again, but the offer isn't showing up. I don't particularly want the headphone offer, I'm just concerned about the offers not loading like they normally would.

I e-mailed CS and it says that I only have 2 offers this week, so I'll give it a day or so before I bother them again. Amazon customer service is usually pretty good, but this time I don't think they understand my problem exactly.

So if I were to get a Kindle Touch KSO, would you recommend my leaving Wifi on, or just making sure its turned on once a day? Also, if I were to make it part of a routine, how long do you think I would need to leave Wifi on in order to get all offers for that day? One more question: do you have to have wifi on to see ads listed on your Special Offer page?

My wifi is turned off the vast majority of the time. I only turn it on: to download content (which isn't very often), update firmware (even less often), and on offer day (every 4 days) to make sure I get all updates and current offers.

Turning wifi on every 4 days is sufficient to get all of the offers. How long? I really have no idea. Maybe 5 or 10 minutes will do. Check this thread to be sure you have all of the offers, since the number being presented varies from 1 to 3 at a time.

You don't need to have wifi on to view the offers page, but you do need it to claim an offer.

1. Thank you for the info.

2. Offers can only be claimed directly through the Kindle? Can I not redeem them through Amazon online? I haven't really used the experimental web browser on my K3 and have only purchased a book or two directly through the Kindle. All other actions were performed from my PC.
