Special Offers and Sponsored Screensavers

For Kindle with Special Offers devices, you will receive Special Offers and Sponsored
Screensavers that display only on the Home screen or screensaver—not within a book. Note
that Special Offers and Sponsored Screensavers are not available in all countries.


When your device is sleeping, a special offer will be displayed on your screensaver. To see
more details on the offer, wake up your Kindle, and then tap the offer’s banner at the bottom
of the Home screen. Special Offers and Sponsored Screensavers are updated regularly when
your Kindle is connected to a network.

Special Offer banners

Special Offer banners are displayed at the bottom of the Home screen. To view additional
details, tap the banner. All available Special Offers are saved on your Kindle.

To view all available special offers:

1. Tap the Home button, then tap the Menu button.

2. Tap View Special Offers.

3. Tap on any available offer to view details about it.

Note that if you buy a special offer when your Kindle is offline, your order will not be
processed immediately. The purchase will be queued and the transaction will be automatically
completed the next time you connect to a network.

Recommended content

When in Cover View, your Kindle Home screen displays recommended content from the
Kindle Store, such as Editors’ Picks. Tapping the item will direct you to the Kindle Store,
where you can view additional details, read customer reviews, and complete purchases.
Swipe or tap to view additional content.
