Additional Notes

Complaint: I have repeatedly requested that Grocery Coupon Network stop sending me emails offering coupons for products. I have been unsubscribed from their services; however, I keep receiving email alerts for their products. As of today (August 11, 2015) I am still receiving email alerts.This is extremely annoying to me and at this point I consider it harassment. They have done nothing to stop the email alerts from being sent to me. I will direct my complaint to any business or organization which has oversight of Grocery Coupon Network's practices. I will also engage an attorney to represent my issue.I would think that Grocery Coupon Network wouldn't want a harassment suit against them which would be public information. I stated as such in an email to them but have not received a reply OR discontinuance of email alerts. I'm not asking for any special privileges...I just want them to stop sending me email alerts.Thank you for all that you can do in this situation.

Desired Settlement: Discontinue sending me email alerts.

Business Response:

Good Afternoon,

We were concerned to receive your letter dated August 12, 2015 regarding your dissatisfaction with Grocery Coupon Network's unsubscribe process.  

We have removed your email address from all lists. If you ever decide to come back, the preference center allows you to choose what days if any you want to receive messages from us.

The email preference center has gone through some changes, as we are constantly trying to make our site and user experience better. We sincerely apologize for any frustration this may have caused you.

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because: Grocery Coupon Network did not address the nature of this complaint at all. As I stated in the complaint, I am aware of the fact that Grocery Coupon Network unsubscribed me from their email address list. If that is the case, why then am I STILL receiving email alerts every single day (including today August 13, 2015)????

I have repeatedly asked Grocery Coupon Network to STOP sending me email alerts, but they have not addressed my request at all. Someone, somewhere at Grocery Coupon Network must have knowledge of how to stop these email alerts. If they cannot figure out how to do this, perhaps they shouldn't be in business.

I will continue to complain until ALL email alerts have stopped being sent to my email address. If I have to engage my attorney to see that this is done, I certainly will.

Consumer Response:

I did not receive an email on 8/13/2015 from Grocery Coupon Network, but I receive daily email alerts from them. The alert appears as a pop up message in my email messages. The actual email message from them below is dated 6/16/2015. I received this particular email message over 80 times on that date. As of this date (8/14/2015) I am still receiving these alerts. I have checked with my Internet Service Provider and email service provider and they have both assured me that these alerts received daily are not errors on their part. It is the responsibility of Grocery Coupon Network to stop them from being sent to me. This goes way beyond being an annoyance at this point.

Business Response:

Good Afternoon,

We have been in contact with the customer, and we are trying to help her resolve the problem. She is not receiving new messages from us, the same messages from June are popping up when she opens other emails. It appears to be some sort of virus or issue with her email client. We are still monitoring the situation closely and trying to help her resolve this.
