Best Buy FAIL

A couple of days ago, I tried to figure out a way to unsubscribe from Best Buy promotional e-mails. I failed. This is actually sort of remarkably, given how _many_ successes I had before and after the Best Buy FAIL. I sent an e-mail, which I never received a response to, and had no idea if it was successful.

Today, I got an e-mail from Best Buy (not a good sign) saying I had contacted "Chantel" (I'm assuming this is who my e-mail got assigned to, but that may be incorrect). They want me to fill out a survey so they'll know how this experience was for me.

Well, I didn't have _any_ experience involving "Chantel" or, really, anyone else at Best Buy other than whatever is auto-generating messages to me. The _good_ news is that this particular survey included a _real_ link to unsubscribe, which I followed and clicked on the little confirm button.

Even that was weak, however, since it has the 10 days disclaimer on it.


I still liked my recycling experience, and I have no complaints about the bluray player they sold me. And that article that I read recently about the guy who makes a living suing spammers makes more sense to me every day I work on unsubbing from everything.
