"Customers Also Bought" under carousel
« on: July 09, 2013, 06:15:11 PM »
Is there any way to disable/get rid of the "Customers Also Bought" suggestions under the carousel on a FireHD 8.9?  I paid extra to avoid the special offers and I find this incessant marketing more irritating than useful.

Thanks,

You can't disable it, but if you use your Fire in landscape mode, as I mostly do, it isn't visible.  Note that for some apps, when the Carousel focus is on the app, information pertinent to the app is shown below.  For a newspaper subscription,  there is also a link to your back issues; for mail, a link to create a new message, and your appointments this week and your favorite contacts are shown.

That annoyed me at first too until I figured out how to turn them off. Now I check them out every now and then.

Thanks!  It's a frequently asked question.  Is that new, or have I missed it all along?

They don't bother me at all, but it's good to know as it's asked here a lot.

I think it's functionality they added in a pretty early update. . . .There's similar functionality for the PW when you have it in 'cover' mode.

They don't bother me on the Fires and on the PW I use list view. :)

Thanks, Ann.  Googling it, I found no references to it before February of this year, and couldn't find a past discussion here...
