The ad-supported option (also known as Special Offers) displays sponsored screensavers on your device's lockscreen.

What does ‘Ad-supported’ mean?

If you purchase an ad-supported device, ads (also known as ‘Special Offers’) are displayed as a screensaver when your Kindle e-reader is in sleep mode and as banners on the bottom of your Kindle e-reader home screen.

You can pay to remove the ads later by visiting Manage Your Content and Devices on Amazon.com or by calling Customer Service.

Note: When you buy a Special Offer while your device is offline, your order is queued. The next time you are connected to a wireless network, the transaction is automatically completed.
