How to remove ads and special offers from your Amazon Kindle
Does your Kindle have ads on the lock screen or home screen? Well, you can remove them, but it will cost you $20. We will explain it to you.
Why does your Kindle have ads?
Amazon has a program for Kindles called “Special Offers.” However, Amazon now appears to be increasingly transparent, calling it “Ads.”
With special offers, also known as ads, you get a $20 rebate on a new Kindle. In exchange, Amazon may show you targeted ads outside of the e-books you read.
Prices are in UK pounds as the Kindles were sold out on Amazon US at the time of writing.
If you go to Amazon now and visit the Kindle page, you’ll see that you can buy an “ad-supported” Kindle for $90 or an “ad-free” Kindle for $110. It’s the same for the Kindle Paperwhite and all other Kindle models. available, including the Kindle Fire line. An ad-supported model is offered for $20 less than the ad-free model.
Notice: The price difference is region specific. In the UK, for example, it costs £10.
How to remove special offers
If you bought a Kindle on special offers (or received one as a gift), the good news is that you can remove the ads by reimbursing the $20 rebate. However, the option isn’t available on your Kindle device.
Instead, you’ll need to sign in to your Amazon account through a web browser and go to the Manage Devices page. (You can also use Amazon’s menu system to access it: Go to Account & Lists > Content & Devices, then click “Devices.”)
Select “Kindle,” then click the device whose offers you want to remove.
Finally, click “Remove Offers” and pay the $20 fee.
It may take up to 24 hours to remove the ads and you may need to restart your Kindle.
