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 Your Kindle Has Ads
Amazon has a program for Kindles called “Special Offers.” However, Amazon now seems to be more and more transparent and calls it “Ads.”
With special offers, also called ads, you get a $ 20 discount on a new Kindle. In return, Amazon may show you targeted ads outside of the e-books you are reading.
If you go to Amazon now and visit the Kindle pageYou will see that you can buy an “ad-supported” Kindle for $ 90 or a “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.
Qualification: The price difference is region specific. In the UK, for example, it costs £ 10.
How to remove special offers
If you bought a Kindle with special offers (or received one as a gift), the good news is that you can remove the ads by paying the $ 20 discount. However, the option is not available on your Kindle device.
Instead, you will need to log into your Amazon account through a web browser and go to the Manage Devices page. (You can also use Amazon’s menu system to get there: go to Account & Lists> Content & Devices, and then click on “Devices.”)
Select “Kindle” and then click on the device you want to remove offers from.
Finally, click on “Remove Offers” and pay the $ 20 fee.
Removing the ads can take up to 24 hours and your Kindle may need to be restarted.
If you have any problems or want help with the process, contact Amazon support.
