Special Offers can be removed by contacting Customer Services and asking. They may ask you to pay a small fee.

If you post details about how to remove Special Offers in any other way on MobileRead, you will be suspended or banned.

It seems odd that this website fully supports the idea that your Kindle is your device and that you should be able to do what you want with it (thus the need for a jailbreak), yet you reject the notion of deleting unwanted ads off of your Kindle.

However I will respect this odd rule. Keep in mind that if people are smart enough to attempt a jailbreak, they are likely smart enough to research how to remove the ads too. All you are really doing is supporting censorship!

No, your guessing, since you did not read the policy statement.

(Well read at least the first two lines of the first post, the ones in bright red letters.)

It's a wink wink nudge nudge sorta thing, don't think too hard about it. Of course, being free to do what you want with the hardware you own comes first, this is just a basic human right, just don't get us all in trouble and ruin the scene while doing it. If Amazon says enough is enough this whole website goes away through the pressure of infinite resources backing endless litigation, even if Amazon is objectively wrong.

At least, that's just how I see it. I'm probably wrong.

Also, I just had Special Offers removed from my Kindle for free. I never even asked for them to do it, I just asked them how to do it, and when they mentioned the fee I said that I didn't wish to pay the fee at this time, and asked for a link to do it myself in the future. They removed the ads anyway at no charge.

I was willing to pay but was worried because multiple credit cards were on my account and I wanted it to be a specific one. But they just did it anyway, no direct asking needed.

EDIT:

Apologies for the double-post, I'm just used to systems where posts auto-merge.

No. We're quite serious about not encouraging people to rip off Amazon.

It's quite common for Amazon Kindle support to remove Special Offers for free for customers that ask about it. But I'm guessing that there's some combination of time you've had the device and how good a customer you are.

Had the Kindle for a couple of months, but been an Amazon Prime customer for several years. If that means anything.
