Depends on the country. In the UK it gets you free next day delivery and access to the Kindle lending library (1 book a month) and I think that's it.

I don't really think that it's worth the £50 annual fee they want for it, as we can get free supersaver delivery anyway if willing to wait a few days for the order, and in case of can't-wait-itis, paying for next day delivery is between £6 and £8 IIRC.
I was Super Savor but just decided to pay for delivery, which is now the 9th, as I know I'd be as miserable as sin if mine didn't arrive by the weekend and my free delivery has estimated delivery as 11th-14th.

Cost £6.01 but in this case it's worth it.

I've paid for faster delivery too I'd rather pay extra as and when I *really* want something fast (which isn't that often tbh, I usually don't really mind waiting a bit longer and get free delivery) rather than fork out for prime membership

The really sad thing is I have a very good PW1, which I'd have to sell if I keep the 2, but I really want to see if the PW2 is worth upgrading too

My PW is OK screen-wise but no quite what it should be really so yep, I wanna see too if the screen is worth the upgrade. If the PW2 lives up to expectations, I might keep the PW anyway as a spare (undecided for now!), and my K3 will get gifted to the dev team.

I'll be eagerly waiting for reports from the non-UK users who receive theirs before we do though

One week to my new Paperwhite 2013 and just three weeks to my new Kindle Fire HDX 7" 32 Gb 2013. Its new toys for me and my one year old toys go to other family members.

Thank you Jeff Bezos for all the wonderful toys.

We should really get a Prime membership free if we buy two new Kindles on an annual basis.

When do they usually register the device to your account? Right before it ships or days before?

Thanks! Mine still hasn't got a serial number… It'll probs turn up a few days before the 9th (the date it's expected to be delivered). So something like the 4-5th of October.

Why would you expect to have one? Your Kindle hasn't shipped yet, has it?

With the previous Kindles you typically got the number (in the My Kindle Page) a couple of days before it got shipped.

In each instance in which I've bought a Kindle (and I've bought several) I've always received a serial number prior to the Kindle being shipped. My Paperwhite 2 serial number is showing up in my account now. The expected delivery date is Oct. 1
