Remove Kindle Fire ads for FREE

Sorry if this has been posted before...

It used to cost £10 to remove the ads but if you contact amazon (I used the online help) they will remove the adds from the lock screen for free.

Then if you want to remove the ads from the carousel you can go into the settings - applications - Amazon Home Recommendations and select hide recommendations.

Thats it, no more ads!

Great stuff - Thanks

I don't really see the problem
With the adds myself , only see them for a second or 2 but each to their own I guess

Excellent,:) many thanks.

Do you have to call amazon or email? Been wanting the ads removed for ages!

just done online chat and they have removed for free.

Thanks

Thanks for this. Also did mine via live chat. They said it may take up to four hours for the ads to be disabled. Amazing what you learn and can save on HUKD. Heat added.

Done as above <10 seconds!

Cheers! They're gone!

Thanks - worked a treat!

Thanks!

Doh, can I blame auto correct?

Just done this on my sons kindle. That should help reduce the pester power a bit.

Brilliant - that worked great on my wife's Kindle - Thanks a lot

When I used live chat she seemed to expect it she was replying so quick to my messages and it was done in about 2 min

Yeah that's what I thought.......

This is why I like my kobo ereader... none of this nonsense with ads to begin with.

Still, this is great for someone with the kindle!

Thanks OP, nice tip

cheers. getting one tomorrow. would be nice to go ad-free. will pass the tip on too....
has everyone been successful i.e. does it depend on if you bought your kindle direct or are a regular customer?

Thanks

Sorted through chat took no time at all thanks for this hot hot hot

The ads on the lock screen didn't bother me. I actually liked them. But I have now removed them. Cheers.

Amazon Helper: "Hi, I'm Sandra - how can I help you today?"
Funkymonkeyboy: "Hi Sandra. One of your colleagues very helpfully removed adverts from my Kindle yesterday..."
Amazon Helper: "Yes, I can see that on your account. Is it to your satisfaction now?"
Funkymonkeyboy: "Actually, I wonder if you could put them back on, for me? Turns out I actually liked them, and now I miss them."




Helpful tip - thanks Chriseybaby. Heat added.

Done via chat as per above. Heat added.

may have to give this a go if i get one of the Kindle Fire HD's on offer. thanks

Superb!!! Thankyou. My son actually had this on his Christmas list as he hated them so much, he's going to be v happy!!

Fantastic. Just bought the kindle fire hdx for the mum in law for £229. 5 days later a deal was posted for a price drop to £199 for one day only. Called them up and within 3 minutes was credited with £30. Happy days. Love em.
