    Things Remembered Spamming?
    I keep getting emails from them and they all start out like this

    "You should have previously received an email from Things Remembered concerning an invitation to join our 2005 Holiday Private Offer. This is an updated announcement on this offer."

    I did, what's the issue? They offered me a better rate for the holidays. I think their first email was an error or something.

    In any event, it sounds like you're not a TR affiliate. You should contact them and tell them you don't want any more emails.

    Okay, I've chnaged my stance after receiving no less than 5 emails over the last 48 hours. I opted in to the better terms they were offering, and I have received two emails since then. They just keep coming and coming and coming (so to speak)...

    I'm not sure it's SPAM, but it is annoying as hell.

    "Things Remembered" - Out of Control !

    Okay - I give up! Please stop this...
    "You should have previously received an email from Things Remembered concerning an invitation to join our 2005 Holiday Private Offer. This is an updated announcement on this offer.

    I am pleased to extend a private offer to your site for this 2005 Holiday Season. Due to your commitment to the Things Remembered affiliate program this holiday season, Things Remembered is proud to announce that you have been selected for a private offer. Here's some information about this private program:

    Holiday Commission Offer(101.1)
    10%-13% sale on all goods

    Private offers are only made available to selected affiliates, and give you special commissions and incentives. This represents a special relationship that Things Remembered wishes to develop with you. Since not all members of Things Remembered affiliate program can see or participate in this offer, you have been selected with the understanding that you will not disclose to other affiliates or merchants the proposed terms of the agreement. To learn more about this special offer, please read the directions listed below."


    There is really nothing updated about the email - IT'S JUST ANOTHER EMAIL!

    I have received two every day, since last Thursday. It's as though the automated application they use, was "Set and Forget."

    Tell you what - One more and the links come down.
    My apologies to "HardwareGeek" if I made everything seem unimportant.

    I'm getting 2-3 per day and it sounds like it isn't such a targeted, special or very private offer!

    I got six just last night. Started getting them last week some time, opted in, got one more, no biggie. Now, between 4 - 6 a day. And then I see in their newsletter that they are raising the comm rate, so this ain't no special invite. So stop inviting!! LOL!

    Due to a technical glitch, the Things Remembered emails were duplicated explaining why some of you received several communications on the same day. We're working to address the technical issue so this doesn't occur again.

    I should also follow up and say that the TR AM wrote me and apologized for the problem. Most of what happened took place over the weekend when everyone was low staffed. It was a Linkshare issue apparently.

    Also, thanks for letting us know here Kelli
