    Is anyone else getting these annoying amazon free gift pop ups that the only way to close out is just close the web page and start over? I completely understand the need for advertising, but these amazon free gift pop ups are beyond annoying.

      I"m not getting them either.

      Have you tried other browsers on that device (PC, laptop, phone, whatever)? I'm betting you picked up something like a browser add-on that is doing this to you without your consent.

      Those are not authorized by me and never will be. My ad company is looking into the problem.

      I get them on my iPhone on the web, not on tapatalk unless I click a link here (but not often). My wife tells me it’s not Amazon - it’s someone posing to get you to click. She tells me it’s malware.

      I don’t think you’ll be seeing them now.
