Emails from companies urging you buy something you've been looking at

Do you get this much? I was looking at a pair of shoes about an hour or so ago and then got an email from them coaxing me to buy make the plunge. I think other companies send you promo codes and stuff so it’s probably a good way of saving some monies.

I HAD INITIALLY ABANDONED THIS THREAD BECAUSE IT’S RUBBISH BUT IT KEEPS POPPING UP ASKING ME IF I WANT IT OR NOT, WELL I DON’T BUT I’M POSTING YOU TO GET RID OF YOU FROM MY LIFE.

They emailed me a promo code to say happy birthday (it’s not actually my birthday, I must’ve put a random date in when I created my account with them), it’s a bit annoying because I’d bought a pair of their shoes before chrimbo and could’ve done with the voucher then.

I don’t like it when you have stuff in your shopping basket but then don’t go through with it, then they email you with mock concern


#5

we just want to know if you’re alive!


#6

Not the same but I just got two pairs of glasses online and immediately they start advertising more of them at me. I only have one pair of eyes you dumb fucks!


#7

hey, you were looking at flights to london. would you be interested in flights to las vegas?!

um, no.


#8

if you get the emails right you can ££££££££

especially if you have timed discounts etc.


#9

Definitely do not buy from them and unsubscribe immediately.


#10

You know what’s weird? Amazons recommended list emails just contain everything the author/band you have been looking at have released. They should contain similar ones


#11

This happens to me all the time.

I looked at some Vegan protein powder and have since had loads of emails being like "Woops! Looks like you’ve not properly checked out"
No because i changed my mind and don’t want it now


#12

for the opticians


#13

Got myself a socket set cheapo from Euro Car Parts the other week. Added it to my basket and forgot about it, had an email a day or two later knocking a third off. ££££


#14

I get them from eBay saying there is something in my basket. THERE IS NOTHING IN MY BASKET.
