RedEnvelope, 6/3 — He may be their Dad, but he'll always be your man.
When people talk about receiving irrelevant emails, this is what some of them are talking about. When RedEnvelope sent out this email, they didn’t segment by gender (or sexual orientation), which meant that lots of subscribers without men in their lives got this message and surely found it irrelevant. RedEnvelope doesn’t ask people to indicate their gender when they sign up for emails, but that kind of information would have been particularly helpful in segmenting out this email campaign.

TigerDirect, 6/3 — TomTom 4.3" GPS $149 - Save Time, Money & GAS
TigerDirect doesn’t really follow it up in the body of the email, but in the subject line they add themselves to the short list of retailers that have tried to capitalize on consumers’ concerns about high gas prices. KB Toys (see May 9 AM Inbox) and Overstock and Sports Authority (see May 20 AM Inbox) have also mentioned gas prices in previous emails.
