I always wanted the Georgia font, so I downloaded that. Anyone else have a favorite that isn't already on Kindle?

You can just "tell" Alexa to "do not disturb".  She gets a little snippy about it.  : )

I finally got one in white.  Couldn't resist the sales price.  Although I got the one day shipping special, and it ended up taking two days. Mine just arrived a few hours ago.  But that's okay.  I've tried the fish tank video.  I also discovered "open fireplace".  Any others?  I tried an audio book on it "Magnolia", and I think I might get back into audio books with this.

Say "Alexa, play playlist Classic Christmas Music", or whatever the exact name of the playlist is.  It's not on Amazon Prime.  It's in your playlist.

Mine is Evangeline, after the poem by Longfellow.

Ironic...One of the reasons you can select for returning is "better price available".  Then they want to know the name of the store and the price.

On my Orders page, it says that my Amazon cover is eligible for return until Jan. 31, 2018.  I'm still considering it, even though I bought a skin to match.  I'm waiting for more reviews on the third party covers, especially the Fintie.

I tried an email.  I guess they're saying to return it if you don't like the price.

I understand that the price has dropped on the website and so you want a price match.I'll certainly look into this matter.

I do understand how disappointing this must have been to you as I'm a buyer too and I'd feel the same if something like happens with me.

About your price match request I would like to inform you that ,We work hard to find the best prices out there and make sure our prices are as low or lower Ė changing our prices instantly if we find a lower offer somewhere else. Therefore, we donít offer post-purchase adjustments.

To read more about our pricing, please visit our Help pages:


Because the marketplace is constantly changing and we strive to offer the lowest price, you'll see some fluctuations in our prices over time.

I hope you understand my limitations in this regard.

However, I can help you out with another alternative-As you do not want highly priced item you can return it to  us for a full refund and purchase it from any seller you feel is offering the best price.

I hope this helps.We look forward to seeing you soon.

We'd appreciate your feedback. Please use the buttons below to vote about your experience today.

Yes, I paid full price, too. But I like the cover.  Did you notice the "We want you to know" note?  They are making it clear the cover isn't for protection if you drop it, and it was intended to be removed during reading.  I don't have too much trouble reading with it on, but I'm starting to remove it before reading because of the weight.  I ordered a skin yesterday to help with the cold metal.

I see that they have reduced the price of the Amazon covers again.

My new Oasis was due to arrive on Nov. 13 with one day shipping, but it's getting ready to ship soon.  Expected date to arrive is now Nov. 7, so it looks like they've pushed up the arrival dates. 

Does Amazon want the USB cord along with the Kindle for trade-in?   Also, do you just reset device and deregister from Amazon?

What is the name of the design?

Can you reduce recipes or cut them in half for a single person?  How does this affect cooking time?

Never mind. I got it to work now with an email gift card. I don't know what the problem was before. And yes, I set up the automatic GC when my amount gets low. I had totally forgotten that I had done it and couldn't figure out why $25 had been put into my account this morning.

Is there a way to add Amazon Prime Visa rewards points to my gift card balance? I used to be able to do it.  Is there a minimum amount? I really prefer to use those points for ebooks and Amazon video rentals.

You have to hit the "track package" bar.

My Oasis hasn't updated either. My Voyage did.

I also bought the smart plug and a $50 gift card to get the $10 credit.  I think I'm going to try Audible.  I've been toying with the idea for awhile anyway.  And I'm trying to figure out what to order with my $10 credit from Alexa. 

I used to feel obligated to finish a book once I started.  Now that I'm getting older, I've decided life is too short and there are too many books I'll never get to.  But it also depends on whether I've paid for the book or if the book is borrowed or a freebie.
