AM Inbox: A joker up its branding sleeve

RetailEmail.Blogspot monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 of the top online retailers. Here are highlights from our inbox this morning:

DisneyShopping, 5/3 — Introducing Crazy 5s!
DisneyShopping really does a great job in bringing its brand and its stable of characters to bear on what could otherwise be very standard promotion. The Cheshire Cat is the perfect spokesperson for this particular promotion, and bringing in the cards and the Crazy 5s (a twist on Crazy 8s, I assume) is fun and makes it even richer.

RedEnvelope, 5/3 — In honor of the Mothership. Shipping is FREE for two days only.
“The Mothership”? Are we being abducted? All hail our alien masters? The language is a little weird in this subject line. Perhaps they meant “motherhood” but had “shipping” on the mind or were trying to get some repetition with the “-ship” in “Mothership” and the “ship-” in “Shipping.” I’ve heard the family SUV or station wagon referred to as the mother ship, but the main image in this email doesn’t bring any vehicle into it. It just didn’t work for me.
