Opting out of Mother's Day Promotions

Other

I don't know about you but recently I have received lots of emails asking me if I want to receive Mothers Day promotions, whilst I appreciate companies being more sensitive. I still find it really upsetting when I opt out as it's if my Mum didn't exist. I think it's so raw as this is the first one without her.

Sorry to hear about your Mum xx

I think it's difficult for companies to address this. On the one hand, sending emails asking if you want to opt out of Mother's Day promotions is a nice gesture, and they obviously have good intentions. Some companies spam you with dozens of emails around Mother's Day, and you'll avoid this by opting out. But on the other hand, receiving these opt out emails can be an issue, as you've found, as it's another reminder and just as upsetting.

Really sorry for your lose beccatavender

This will be an incredible difficult time for you.

I'm sorry I can't say anything helpful.

I think companies are really trying and you'll just get the 1 email asking if your want to opt out rather than a half a dozen in the run up to mother's Day which maybe harder. Saying no doesn't mean you're not acknowledging your Mum.

I don't really know what a suitable alternative would be as companies do heavily promote occasions like mother's Day / father's Day / Valentine's if they sell products they think people will buy as gifts.

Thank you all for taking time to reply & your condolences. I think I was just venting. I think it's good that companies are taking this step. I don't remember this in previous years, but acknowledge that I may just have not noticed them.

One thing have notice this year, for Valentine's Day lots of the advertising was aimed at treating yourself.

I think it's a good idea, I got similar ones before Valentine's Day.

I think it’s a good idea, but it can still be just as upsetting to receive that email and have to opt out. I wish they could have settings when you sign up so you don’t have to receive it later or every year as a reminder though, personally.
