    Default I'd post more if not for Mann Lake

    I may have to put Mann Lake in my spam filter... I'm getting multiple emails per day for the past week, and each one is basically like previous ones sent.

    The "delete" button is right where it always is, a single click and they magically disappear.

    Up to 4 a day. And they extended the 11% sale for a extra day too.
    I don't remember them pushing this March sale as hard in past years.

    Beekeeping is done with descretionary dollars and we are eight years into a recession. Mann lake is trying to boost sales thats all.

    I'm Ok with any emails from Mann Lake regarding sales and weekly specials. I try to buy throughout the year, before I need things and when they are on sale. Much better than waiting until I need something and paying full price.

    I was just on their site today. Put stuff in the cart, went to check out, found out shipping was 150% of my whole cart, and closed the site instantly. Do they overnight ship or something , as a policy? Because I won't pay 100's to ship a box. Someone's doing really good, on those rates. Unless they can get that cost down, they will be in my spam filter. I should see if they have options, but I was horrified!

    Had that problem with most online places until you reach their "free" shipping point. Discovered www.betterbee.com very pleased with their products and shipping.

    Free shipping after $100 order. Did you just buy one box?

    Just look at the bottom of their e-mail and you will find a utility to opt-out of future e-mails.

    Yes just received an order from betterbee that had reasonably cheap and fast shipping. Will be buying stuff from them again.

    Default Anyone else getting spammed to death by Mann Lake?

    Since the first of March I have received 19-20 emails from Mann Lake touting this or that product and/or sale.

    In one week....?????

    IMO its a good way to have turn people off right quick no matter how good the deals might be.

    Anyone else have this happen or am I the only one they are annoying the heck out of.

    UPDATE: There used to be two threads on this topic, and my post was in the second thread, linking to this thread. Now I see that Barry has merged the two threads into one.

    Yup. They have rubbed me the wrong way more than once. Someday I will drive up there and speak my mind.

    I don't mind getting 16-20 emails during a sale and one email a week for their weekly specials. It's 'saved' me a few bucks over the course of the last couple years. At some point you signed up for it, so I say either deal with it or unsubscribe.
