How to unsubscribe

Recently I have been bombarded with emails from companies I do not want to trade with.

Mostly if I look at the small print at the base if the email there is an unsubscribe link, however Cotton Traders who write to me every day appear to have no such link.

How do the rest of you deal with these pesky companies ?

Sorry folks I have just found the unsubscribe link for Cotton Traders.

I have decided to have an unsubscribe day and clear as many as I can. smile

Good luck - I need to do this too. The worst offender I have is a company that won't stop posting stuff to me (I had a subscription with them years ago). They have no UK address apart from a distribution company (which I wrote to, to no avail) and no web or email address is given on their mailings. So I have no way to tell them to stop. angry

It must have been National Unsubscibe Day yesterday - I was doing that too.
Whenever I buy anything online I'm always careful to tick the box to indicate I don't want them to pass my details on to anyone else, but it remains a mystery how some of these companies have my email address.

If you can't find a way to unsubscribe, can't you mark them as 'junk' so they never appear in your actual in-box and are deleted after so many days?

The 'unsubscribe' instruction is in an inexcusably small font at the end of the email to deter us from trying to find it.

Must have been Nat. Unsubscibe Day yesterday. I actually applied myself and cancelled my Kindle Unlimited sub. I'd heard it was purposely difficult, which is why I'd put it off, but in fact it was simple. That's 9.99 euros saved each month.

Yes Ana I might try that.

Just noticed bl**dy Cotton traders which I have recently unsubscribed from was floating about on GN. hmm I can't get away from them. angry
