Yes.
You can always toggle them back on if someone mentions a good deal.

I really liked the new update, with the ability to turn off the suggested reading display. Now my PW (without SO's) is again what I like best: A portable bookshelf with my favorite reading always available.

I got the new Fire 8.9 with SO but find that I, too, really miss the old Fire screensavers. Did you get those same screensavers back when you opted out?

It was only a matter of time before "Special Offers" became typical ads. Obviously, advertising for a movie, in this case a Twilight film, is meant to encourage you to go see the film. Maybe there WAS a special offer mixed in there somewhere, say a discount on a movie ticket for the film or something, but still - ad. Wouldn't be surprised to start seeing more such "ads" in the future.
