Thanksgiving weekend: promotional report

Now that gmail divides my email into three main tabs plus spam, I decided it was a good time to keep track of what I was getting over the course of Thanksgiving weekend. It’s the biggest advertising time of the season. So from Wednesday through Monday, I didn’t clear out my promotional tab or my spam folder.


The final tally: 89 promotional pieces of email. 108 pieces of spam, most of which were also from companies I have at some point done business with.


Out of the promotional tab, two of the items were of any interest or use to me. Yes, two. (Neither was selling anything, either, and neither was time-sensitive.)


That’s nearly two hundred useless messages. Wheeeee.


I think the moral of the story is that I can let stuff pile up in the promotions tab all I want, because seriously, the percentages are incredibly low.
