I have a problem with Kindle ads, I don't mind having to look at these eyesores for the $15.00 discount on tablet, but what I do mind is not being able to get rid of these ads without taking 5 min. to swipe, swipe, swipe, swipe in order to get to my game, I have a solution though if Amazon doesn`t want to help, I bought an I Pad, good bye Kindle Fire 10, no more problems with not being able to push aside ads with ease, and by the way, just because these ads don't go away easy, surely you don't think I would be willing to buy, quite the opposite, it makes me extra careful to stay away from the products you are advertising, just as I did, throw yours away and buy something else.
The special offers are only on the lockscreen and maybe in a tiny banner at the bottom. Anything else you are seeing, especially if pop-ups are from those free games and apps you no doubt gleefully installed. :)
If the ads do not go directly to amazon.com and indicate they are for Amazon stuff, they are not from Amazon.
I am sure Apple is happy you acted in haste and apparent anger without seeing what was going on. Apps on an iPad may bring along ads too.
NOTE: I do NOT speak for or represent Amazon in any fashion. This is a customer to customer forum.
