    Overstock emails every night?
    What the h--- Overstock/Linkshare? Am I going to get two emails every day from now on?

    Is anybody else getting this - the same two emails every day from Overstock/Linkshare telling me the same thing that the previous nights email said. That their SKU list is updated at overstock. This just started about a week ago.

    Driving me nuts, too! I'm starting to get 'em from Walmart as well. There might be an opt-out option on LS...

    I get three e-mails a day saying "Merchants who have provided a SKU list for their program will usually update their SKU lists because of changes in their inventory."

    Okay, a merchant updated the inventory. Do I really have to log in and check out the SKUs?

    Usually I like to create Linkshare links from the merchant's website while using the "advanced link creator" or whatever it's called -- that's the ability I really care about.

    Certainly a useless and annoying feature. I can't imagine anyone finding this useful, especially for merchants who update their feeds dailiy.

    Getting them from both Overstock and Walmart - it looks like the only option is to unsubscribe from all emails from a merchant, not just these.

    There has been an announcement up since this morning on the main page (after login):
    You may have received several e-mails regarding SKU list updates. We
    apologize for any inconvenience, and are taking action to stop the e-mails. Thank you for your patience.

    BriteSmile sends them out as well and calls it Offer Name: #OFFER_NAME#

    *sigh* The accumulation of these notices does little except to generate ennui.
