How to Stop Groupon Emails With Ease
Groupon is an online company that provides digital coupons. The service works like an e-commerce marketplace that connects subscribers with local vendors offering various goods and services at a discount price.
The sheer choice on Groupon’s website can be overwhelming, as it features around 370,000 active deals at any given moment. Nearly half of the total number of subscribers—24 million of them—are based in the U.S.
One of Groupon’s key marketing tactics is to send personalized emails with highlighted deals that its subscribers may be interested in. While legitimate, a torrent of Groupon spam emails can also cause a great deal of irritation in some users. If you’re one of them, find out how to stop receiving emails from Groupon for good.
How to Unsubscribe From All Groupon Emails on Your Own
Groupon has gained a reputation for taking it a bit too far with its promo emails. Many of Groupon’s users who unsubscribed from the newsletters kept receiving the company’s marketing emails anyway.
In Australia, the Government’s Communications and Media Authority even issued a formal warning to Groupon in response to a high number of consumer complaints, reports GetSafeOnline.org.
Are you one of Groupon’s unhappy customers trying to find out how to stop spam emails from the company? There are two ways to go about it, depending on whether or not you have an account on the company’s website.
If You Don’t Have a Groupon Account
You can unsubscribe from these unsolicited emails by clicking on the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of the message.
Groupon advises that it could be a couple of days before this change is reflected in its system, so you can expect a few more spam emails in your mailbox even after you’ve unsubscribed.
If You Have a Groupon Account
Your email preferences can be managed directly in Groupon’s Subscription Center. Here’s how:
- In the drop-down menu below your name, click on Subscriptions
- Untick the boxes next to the email categories you no longer wish to receive
- Hit Save
If you’ve stumbled upon any difficulties, it may be best to get in touch with Groupon’s customer service. Here’s how you can reach the team:
How to Stop Groupon Emails With DoNotPay
How to report spam and unsubscribe from emails can differ on a case-by-case basis, mostly depending on the content of these messages, as well as who is behind them. You no longer have to get bogged down in detail regarding every spam email you’ve received. DoNotPay has devised a “one-size-fits-all” solution that streamlines the entire process on your behalf.
Our app will:
- Unsubscribe you from spam emails
- Inform you if there is a class-action lawsuit against the individuals behind illegal spamming
To make this happen, follow these simple instructions:
- Open DoNotPay in any web browser or your iOS device
- Choose the Spam Collector option
- Enter your email address and link it to the DoNotPay app
- Wait until you get the next spam email, then forward it to email@example.com
An email is sent illicitly if you didn’t agree to receive it, or you couldn’t unsubscribe from it because there was no such option provided. If that’s the case, there may be a class-action lawsuit in progress that you can join. Think of it as spam email revenge that could result in a compensation reward for you!
Once you join the lawsuit, a flag will show up in the Spam Collector tab on your DoNotPay dashboard.
What is Groupon’s Communication Policy?
Groupon states that, when you enter your email, log into your account, or accept notifications from it, you consent to receive tailor-made Groupon deals every day. You can unsubscribe from these communications at any given moment.
Even if you unsubscribe from its email messages of marketing or commercial nature, Groupon reserves the right to send you non-commercial emails about your account and any transactions on its website.
Spot a Groupon Phishing Email Easily
An online scam scheme from fraudsters imitating Groupon was first recorded sometime in 2010, writes The Medium. In this particular scam, the cyber attackers were devising fake Groupon websites to trick users into signing in with their real Groupon credentials. Once the scammers got their hands on victims’ personal information such as usernames and passwords, hacking Groupon accounts became a no-brainer.
To learn how to recognize phishing and email scams in general, read our piece on how to conduct an email scam check.
If you’ve been the victim of a Groupon-related scam, you can take some comfort in the fact that Groupon refunds any money that the swindlers spent on your account without your knowledge or permission. If you believe you’ve been targeted by fraudsters, visit Groupon’s Customer Support Center and report it as soon as possible.
Throw Out All the Paper Junk Mail, Too
Gone are the days when we would find kindhearted hand-written cards or actually relevant letters in our mailboxes. Nowadays, it’s mostly just junk, and then some. If you’ve had it up to here with this useless unsolicited mail, DoNotPay can help you get rid of it.
Instead of contacting senders of these pieces of mail individually, you can just take a photo of the received junk mail and send it to us.
These are the steps you need to take:
- Select the DoNotMail option on the DoNotPay homepage
- Hit the Enroll Now button
- Upload your photos
That’s it—in one single move, you’ve cleared out your mailbox of trash! Some junk mail is also a fraud attempt, and all junk mail takes an unnecessary toll on the environment. May we say—good riddance!
Again, if there’s an open class-action lawsuit against the entity behind the spam email, we will let you know. This way, you can choose to join the plaintiffs’ list. If the court rules against the sender, you could be awarded up to $500 in compensation!
