When I bought my Kindle (July 2012) I was told it came with 8GB of cloud storage. How do I get this? I assumed registering the Kindle would have bumped it from the 5 I had as a Prime member to 8. Do I need to do something else?

To insert a product link use the format: [[ASIN:ASIN product-title]] (What's this?)

Holy, I don't believe there's ever been a tie between owning a Kindle and 8GBs of cloud storage.

Cloud storage, for items bought from Amazon, is unlimited.

The 5GBs of cloud storage you have isn't related to Prime...everybody with an Amazon account gets 5GB free.

If what you bought is a Kindle Fire, the 8GBs that you read about are probably the storage on the device...that's 8GB.

I went back to BestBuy (where I bought my Kindle) and it seems they got the details wrong on their signage. They had both 8GB device storage AND 8GB cloud storage listed as features. Oops. I told customer service about it but I doubt they're going to run around and change the signs. Anyway, mystery solved! Thanks for your reply.
