Question ... I am buying for a gift ... These automatically come linked to my account. How do I change that? Clear it out before I gift it?
Anyone know?

If you look at the product page for the Kindle, (all models) look directly under the big yellow "Add to Cart" button on the right side of the page. There is an option to buy the kindle as a gift. Putting a checkmark in this option will have Amazon deliver the Kindle unregistered, and then, after receiving the Kindle, your gift receiver can register it him/herself to their own account. Just click that option.

From Amazon:
"When you check the "this will be a gift" box, Amazon will:
Deliver the Kindle unregistered. The recipient can register the Kindle to their own Amazon account when it arrives.

Ship the Kindle in an unmarked Amazon box that doesn't say Kindle. Kindle is designed to ship in its original container directly to you. Keep Kindle a surprise by marking it as a gift.

Remove prices on the packing slip included with the order."

If it is already registered to your account you can do a factory reset but you would have to open the box. You can also deregister it from your account through your Manage Your Kindle page on Amazon.

I would probably click on the "Buying as a Gift" button. But, that's just me.

I did use the buying as a gift button when purchasing but still show up registered to my acct ( 2 kindle fire 2 fire HD for grandchildren) I know I can unregister them under managing my kindle, but question is will they still receive free trial Prime when they register them when received for Christmas gift?

I think anyone can sign up for a 30 day free trial of Prime.
