Hmmm.... Well I tried the regular shut down with hitting the button, then it asked shut down? I touch yes. Then it shuts down, I startup, still no silly offers.

I emailed Amazon, they said chat or call. I don't like doing either of those options. I just guess I didn't have to pay $15 to lose the ads, but darn it I didn't mind if I got a good offer.

For whatever reason, that doesn't seem to trigger download of the missing offers (at least, not so far). It could just be that the Fire apps are flaky (I know it often takes it forever to update with all the apps, games, books and music that is new, even though the wireless is on all the time with mine).

The Books app is close to useless - I'm hoping Freetime will fix it - since it takes over 5 minutes to show me any books (cloud or device) and it keeps hanging and shutting off while working on it.

I see. Oh well, guess I'll just have to pay the full price then. Was so thrill when the offer popped out on my PW. Sure hope Amazon will support the Kindle for other countries soon though. Thanks anyway!

I saw that special offers are being brought to the UK and a couple of EU countries soon. Hopefully they will spread further, over time.

There doesn't appear to be a "restart" for the Fire that works in the same way as the eInk kindles (which I often resort to, in order to force offers to get downloaded).
Well I finally chatted with Amazon and they told me to deregister! I said if I get desperate I will as I don't want to lose anything.

They said you won't, but I don't feel brave enough and not sure it is worth it.

Did you get yours to work?

I did.

I've deregistered and re-registered (to another account) and not everthing disappears. Apps stay installed, for example (which is nice, I have a number of third party apps on mine), and so does music and docs. I suspect side-loaded videos will stay (I didn't have any), but books, audiobooks and the newsstand seem to get cleared.

Well I deregistered and registered on the KFHD and it did nothing to fix the special offers!

It did delete my email passwords and accounts, audiobooks were deleted. Who knows what else. So I give up.

What gives with the special offers ??

Right now, I'm not seeing any on the Kindle Fire. I did expect a new one this week, but haven't seen it.

Right now, the only one is on the eInk Kindles.

Thanks Koland. Can you post if there is a new special offer on the KFHD? Thanks.

Weird the ad for $10 off discover showed up on my "special offers" now. I emailed a couple of books to my account and they came up on my KFHD without me syncing, and I guess that might be what triggered the special offers. Such as they are, lol.

My book I sideloaded was acting flakey before, and now it isn't. It kept closing when I hit the bottom part of the screen to get to the TSS.

The only flakey thing it is doing now is every 4 pages or so it reads (TSS) something that is not showing on the page. Hmmm......
