The Newest Form of Junk Mail

I recently caught myself doing something that I hate. It was disguised as something else, but still the same. What I hate is junk mail. I have done my best to eliminate it from my mail box, but I think the newest form of junk mail are these e-coupon deals. You know them as Groupon, DoubleDeals and NoMoreRacks.

I found myself lured into signing up for 6 such emails every day. They show up early in the day. So, when I sit down for my first check of email, in the morning, I waste time checking out the offers instead of getting on with the business at hand.

I have found myself contemplating the bargains they offer, just because they were a good deal. That old “It was on sale.” and “I got it at a great price” will get me every time. Never mind that I am not interested in eating at that restaurant or I live too far from that car wash.

That impulsive buying can get you in trouble really quick. Now that I am sitting down and thinking about it, several of these e-services I have never purchased anything from. Why am I still allowing them to send me their deals?

I have decided it is time for me to take action. Reducing the email sent to my in-box will free up some time and save me some money. So, it’s “Unsubscribe” for me!

    I hear you on this! I have purchased several deals though from each one, but for things that I can do with my family that I had already planned on doing even at full price (visiting George Washington’s home and the Space Needle in Seattle, as well as a haircut just after our move). I do however use a separate email address for all of these types of mailings and check them once per day.
