Don't email Scotts (the lawn care company)

I asked a question about a mower last year. I think I may have been looking for an owner's manual or had a question about one of them.

I got added to 5 email newsletters.

Somehow I ended up on Allegiant Airlines mailing list - unsubscribe did nothing, put in a rule to send the mail to my junk folder, still doesn't stop it - Allegiant uses a different sending address for every mailing, none of the addresses have any word to key into for the spam filter. I gave up and just hit delete now.

I had the same issue with MYOB years ago. I emailed them a question and didn't receive an answer, but did get lots of spam. There were no options to not receive their spam. Although I had been considering their product, there's no way I'd ever buy from them.

I installed Spam Sieve and it has eliminated the spam that Mail couldn't identify.

I found an error on Ford's website once and emailed them that they should correct it. Got added to every Ford and subsidiary email list -- Lincoln, Ford Racing, you name it.

Yup, same problem. Even though they all are tagged as junk mail and go into the junk mail folder they still keep coming. We use their online service to book our tickets and seats. Thought I unchecked all their promotional emails and ads, but they keep coming even though they are never opened. Urrg!!

I contacted Scott's last year when their budget-level broadcast fertilizer push-spreader failed on its first use. I told them (honestly) that I got this ~$30 item on clearance at WalMart for $6. They said they would make it right.

They sent me two $5 off coupons for any Scott's product (or products, since you couldn't use both on the same item) that expired at the end of December, and this was like October. They both expired, unused.

I don't remember getting on a lot of mailing lists, but I was less than impressed with their product and how they stood behind it.

Oh well. Live and learn.

Tommy Bahama is also terrible about emails. I can unsubscribe from all of their lists but the second I buy a new item I'm back on all the lists.

Likewise. I have a 25% success rate of getting sites to actually unsubscribe me. Most of the time I don't bother and just declare them 'junk'.

If it's a US based company and they don't have functioning opt-out options, you can likely get money from them. I think my state also has laws around it and I can take them to small claims.

Another reason I like Gmail. They have a one-click Spam and Unsubscribe button for those rare spammers that make it through Google's otherwise exceptional filters.
