Turning off the advertisements that show up on certain Kindle Fire tablets is easy, but you will pay a price.

I know I have to pay extra, but how do I turn off the commercials on my Kindle Fire screen?

Amazon refers to certain Fire tablet and e-readers as "Kindle With Special Offers." These ads appear as screen savers, on the lock screen or at the bottom of the home screen.

To pay to have ads removed, log into your account at amazon. com/manageyourkindle or go to the Your Account page and in the Digital Content area, click on "Manage Your Content and Devices." Next, click on "Manage Your Devices" and select your Kindle to display its details. Next to "Special Offers," click Edit and follow along.

Depending on the type of Kindle, it typically costs $15 or $20 to unsubscribe from the offers — which is around the price difference with the Kindle models that come ad-free out of the box. Once you unsubscribe, your Amazon account is billed accordingly.
