Ad Supported Kindle Ships Today

Kindle with Special Offers is shipping today about a week ahead of schedule. The Kindle is just like any other Kindle, except that it comes with ads. In exchange customers get $25 off, so the Kindle is $114.

The device also comes with special offers. Here are a few listed on the press release:

  • $10 for $20 Amazon.com Gift Card
  • $6 for 6 Audible Books (normally $68)
  • $1 for an album in the Amazon MP3 Store (choose from over 1 million albums)
  • $10 for $30 of products in the Amazon Denim Shop or Amazon Swim Shop
  • Free $100 Amazon.com Gift Card when you get an Amazon Rewards Visa Card (normally $30)
  • Buy one of 30 Kindle bestsellers with your Visa card and get $10 Amazon.com credit
  • 50% off Roku Streaming Player (normally $99)

Is it worth it to have ads for a cheaper device?
