Amazon Announces Ad-Supported Kindle For $114--That’s $25 Off

Kindles just keep getting cheaper. Now Amazon has version of its reader with ads. While I thought it was a bad idea, it's not.

This Website Is For Financial Professionals Only


At first, I thought Amazon was off base. Who would want ads popping up while reading?


But Amazon reportedly says the ads will only show up on the home screen and in screensavers when you are not reading. That's fine, as long as it doesn't get more intrusive.


For a lot of people, putting up with some ads to save $25 is worthwhile.


In fact, since you're getting all kinds of "special offers" from Amazon on these ads, it might actually be a benefit.
