Default Penn State creepy stalker emails

Jeer for lately cyberstalking me with spam. If I go to their website but don’t buy anything that time, within a day I get an email trying to get me to buy the stuff I looked at. Very creepy, and has me considering never going to their website again.

If you go to “email preferences” in your account on their site, there’s nowhere to turn off these emails.

I'm with you, Jim ! . But there are other websites that are up to the same trick ... however no other pen kit websites that I know of.

Another thing that gets me is if you do a google search for "xyz pen kit", you will always get PSI at the top of the page of results, no matter what you have typed for "xyz" ... any name at all ... even if you literally use "xyz".

That creepy stalker will likely end up sending you a 20% off coupon as well. Just a heads up

So does walmart, walgreens, king arthur flour, and so on, and so on, and so on. Millions of retailers do this.

Yep, and that's about the only time i buy direct from them instead of Exotic. Sort of like being a semi-professional stalkee.

I wonder who is stalking who. This is your first post and it’s to Jeer PSI for something that many, many retailers do. There are also pop up ads that come from many retailers even when you are not on their site and don't even have an account. You are doing something else entirely and suddenly there's a pop up ad for something you were previously researching.

The only way to avoid it is to not shop online. Take a drive to the store instead.

I have eliminated many; I am less concerned about the any "creepy-ness". I do have almost all of my shopping email to an email account under one of my passed dogs names.

Is it really that hard to hit delete I had 48 emails that are just things I either bought or followed through with just before I came on here. Guess what hit the check mark on all and one press of the delete button and they were all gone.

It’s simply a fact of modern life and you’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg. I’m more concerned about the data being collected that I dont know about than the data the show me they’re collecting...

Nice thing about PSI is that when you go to their site, put something in the cart then leave the site, guaranteed the next day you'll get a discount offer. Did it last night and this morning I had a 15% discount offer in my email. Some might have gotten it too as it seemed like a mass email but it happens to me every time. Also works if you give them a review, you get $5 off your next purchase within a certain time frame.
