My ongoing quest to opt-out from GOLF Magazine emails

Around 2004 I belonged to a country club and started playing golf. For Christmas that year my mother got me a subscription to GOLF Magazine — I also started receiving emails from them. A few years later we moved back to NYC which meant no more country club and no more golf…and along the way I have tried to unsubscribe from these emails multiple times. 

But I keep receiving them…and by now this has been going on (somewhat sporadically) for probably more than 10 YEARS! My email has also changed along the way and these emails followed me. I got another one last week and I have unsubscribed AGAIN.

Since I work in the email industry I’m probably more aware than most consumers of when I unsubscribe to something and then keep receiving the emails — especially when it is very sporadic.  In the case of GOLF Magazine sometimes I don’t receive anything for a year or two and then POOF I’m back on the list.

Keeping up with a database of opt-outs across various platforms and databases is no small task but I’m fairly certain a large company like Time Inc. has ample resources and vendors to do the job.

I’m hoping my most recent “unsubscribe” finally does the trick.
