I get sick of some of these special offers. Also, how often do special offers that actually OFFER something come along? I remember there was one a while back that let me buy a history book for $1 and it was originally like $15 or something. I haven't seen anything like that since, just ads for movies and stuff.

I think the list is modified at least daily but, like you, I find the "ads" part seem to hang on for a very long time. I accept the ads as displayed on the home page and as screen-savers but am confused about why they are also put on the SO list - there isn't a "special offer" associated with most of them (that I see at least.)

Perhaps I misunderstand the whole concept of Special Offers?

Nothing to complain about - just curious.

Daily? Why do I keep seeing the same ones for weeks? I mean, it isn't THAT big of a deal, I was just wondering.

"Special offers" sounds better than "advertisements." It makes it sound like a benefit.

Have you turned your wireless on? The ads can't update if your Kindle doesn't communicate with Amazon.

asortafairytale: Yes, I turn it on often. But I don't think Amazon updates their special offers DAILY, do they?

Old Rocker: It has been beneficial but I have sickened of seeing Lindsay Lohan on my Kindle screen. :P

Yes - daily.

I will see changes to the SO list but not a wholesale replacement OF that list each day. On some days, the changes are very few.

Daily, probably not. I'm guessing it's about every week or so though.

Do you have an e-ink or Fire? I don't really pay much attention to the special offers. Just guessing that it cycles through about six or so and a new one is added every few days. I know I can look at the list of special offers, but I've only done that once. On my Fire, I have noticed that the demon Mickey Mouse is gone as well as the Harry Potter one and the Nivea for Men. I still get the Lexus ad. I don't remember a Lindsey Lohan ad, but I would mentally block that one out, anyway :)
