I had an old kindle keyboard that broke after the warranty expired. I just bought a new one but with special offers. And they are not showing up? It looks just like my old kindle with authors and birds as the screensavers. And under "Menu" there is no option that says "view special offers". Forgive me if this is asked all the time, but I can't find the answer through searching in the forums. Do special offers take a while to show up?

It has to be connected to the Amazon servers for the offers to show up initially, after that they get changed when you connect to Amazon, at least occasionally they change.

Check your manage your kindle page and see if you're registered for the special offers.

Hmm. It has been connected via 3g and wi-fi too. I've downloaded books. And the kindle restarted to update its software. Under the manage my kindle page, it says "subscribed" under special offers.

I would do a reset. Slide the switch at the bottom of the Kindle for about 20 seconds. You'll then see a picture of a boy sitting under a tree. Give it time to reset, turn on wi-fi or 3g and see if the offers appear. Good luck I hope it works for you :)
