If you’re subscribed to a lot of email newsletters from your favorite retailers, your inbox is about to get flooded.
Having so many email subscriptions creates a lot of noise for your inbox. It can be difficult to keep up and near impossible to sift through for the best deals. Ultimately, most consumers end up frustrated with the onslaught of holiday sales pitches, deleting every single one without even bothering to open them.
Time Magazine’s Moneyland reports that new research from Responsys found that 60% of online retailers will send out their first round of holiday emails in mid-October, before you’ve even picked out pumpkins for your jack-o-lanterns. In 2011, the first holiday messages went out on or near October 18th. As the Black Friday sales season ramps up the flood will get even worse as every retailer you’ve ever given a credit card number to will begin to inundate you with holiday sales pitches. And most online consumers will feed the cycle when they unwittingly sign up for retailers’ newsletters while purchasing holiday gifts.
Online shoppers are faced with a painful catch-22: Keep the emails and sift through them for the true gems at the expense of your time, or delete everything and miss the deals you would actually be happy to see. As a consumer, you lose either way.
There is a better way to track all of the best Black Friday deals, of course. Here’s how you do it.
Step 1: Unsubscribe from all of those retail newsletters.
Counterintuitive as this may seem, it’s extremely time consuming to organize all of the information coming from a large collection of email newsletters. Believe me, it’s what we do every single day, so we know this simple truth all too well. Determining if something really is a deal or comparing it to offerings from other retailers is a huge time commitment. We believe your time is worth more than that, especially when we’ve already done the work for you. So go ahead and get rid of the email clutter. We’ve got your back.
