By the end of 2010 I was fed up with the marketing tactics of my cable and internet provider, Insight. The company repeatedly sent out official looking documents, some so far as tricking me into thinking they were actual bills, only to be opened and be real world marketing spam. The problem was getting out of hand and the waste of paper was just sickening.
Looks like Insight is wasting no time in 2011 doing the same thing. Yesterday I received an official, red marked envelope, with official lettering stating ‘Do Not Bend’. Did I miss a payment, will there be interruption in my service, is this a court summons? Nope, just some spam informing me that I can get a deal on a phone line for the same price I could get it at the last 2 years. This is not breaking news and as far as I’m concerned, should be illegal to market this way.
Keep it up Insightbb, I’ve already talked with WOW cable and internet provider and I’m ready to make the switch. Put another stack of this crap in my mailbox and I’ll be cancelling immediately.
