Virgin Wines keeps serving up the spam

28 April 2010

For the love of sweet baby Jesus. So only yesterday, we pointed out how Virgin Wines abuse their registration process by forcing new customers to opt-in to their spammy emails. The only way you can avoid their spammy emails is through manually unsubscribing by email. And we mentioned how Virgin promised to send emails from "from time to time" but by that they meant they'll spam you up to three times a week.

And now, well now you've noticed we've started referring to Virgin Wine's mandatory spam as spam, because we've received another two pieces of spam in less than 24 hours. So that's now five times in eight days:

Bitterwallet - Virgin Wines spam 1
Bitterwallet - Virgin Wines spam 2

Difficult to know what else to call it, really. If we buy a box of Merlot, will Virgin Wine stop spamming us? Can they tell we only joined to keep an eye on their shady flyers?

    why do you feel the need to post this shite again -keep it to one article rather than padding out the site.
  • Andrew R.
    Why don't you just unsubscribe? That's what its there for...
  • Nobby
    Don't unsubscribe, redirect. I send quite a bit of my junk mail their way. I know they probably just sent it all to trash, but it makes you feel a little better.

    I simply couldn't depart your web site prior to suggesting that I actually enjoyed the standard info a person provide on your guests? Is going to be back steadily in order to inspect new posts
