What devices are supported?
We support most eReaders with the exception of the Kindle e-Ink devices since they use a non-standard Amazon DRM proprietary format.
Can I reuse my promo code?
No. All promo codes provided are unique and can only be used once.
Can I use a different reader than the Bluefire Reader?
We strongly encourage using the Bluefire reader app (available on iOS and Android), since it supports the type of file we are using. You may experience some technical difficulties using a different reader application.
