Live Chat Help Session

Note: Here's a help session I had today. I get email from this clothing company, and I genuinely like their products. Typically, I get up to three emails from them a day, and after not seeing any option to really adjust my email settings from my profile page on their site, I reached out to their live chat help....Maybe I was being unclear, but this seemed like a logic puzzle that Jill just couldn't solve...
Please wait for a [COMPANY] site operator to respond. You are now chatting with 'Jill' Your Issue ID for this chat is LTK1219307271X
Jill: Thank you for chatting with [Company] today, my name is Jill and I'm happy to assist you.
Adam: Hi Jill. How do I reduce the number of email from [Company]? In the email and social settings, I see "Once a day to announce new sale events," which is clicked, but I receive 2-3 emails from the company every day.
Jill: Sure. If you log into your account and go your email settings. You can select to just receive the daily email of the new sales or I can unsubscribe you.
Adam: I have selected to receive email Once a day to announce new sales, but I still receive email up to 3 times a day. I want to get the email, but with less frequency.
Jill: Yes this sometimes can take about a week to update in our system
Adam: This selection is the only option available, and has been selected as long as I've been signed up for [Company]. If it hadn't been selected, I shouldn't have been receiving daily email, correct?
Jill: Yes that is correct. But if that is too much for you. I can unsubscribe you from all emails
Adam: Ok - to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. When the website says "Once a day to announce new sale events" it really means "Up to three times a day," and a customer can sign up to get everything or nothing. Is that right?
Jill: No that option means that you will receive 1 email a day. It can take about a week or so to update
Adam: I'm not sure you're understanding. That option has been selected since I joined [Company], and there is no other option to say I want more than 1 email per day. How am I receiving up to three a day from the company?
Jill: So sorry for the misunderstanding. That is the only option that we have available. You should only be receiving the daily email
Adam: Ok - so I can get up to three a day, or I can deselect the receive email button and get nothing.Is that correct?
Jill: If you deselect that option, you will receive more emails and offers. That is the only option we have to decrease the number of emails you will receive
Adam: This system is baffling to me. I just want one email a day. Since it seems like that's not an option, I'd like to unsubscribe entirely.
Jill: Sorry for the trouble. I just troubleshooted that for you. And was told to have you check and uncheck that button. Looks to be a minor technical issue. But I can still unsubscribe you. If you want
Chat session has ended.
You are not currently in a chat session.
Adam: That's ok, I'll try unchecking/rechecking. I like [Company's] products, so it would be a shame to not have them in my inbox anymore (albeit just once a day).
And Jill will never know she won the customer back.
Oh good. I feel safer buying these now.

ADAM,

There are political fires raging across Capitol Hill right now and they’re closing in fast on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

President Barack Obama and anti-gun politicians are on an all-out crusade to pass new laws that would: BAN tens of millions of rifles, shotguns and handguns…make it more difficult, expensive, and in some cases, ILLEGAL for you to purchase ammunition…and even FORCE you to register your firearms with the federal government.

Some are even talking about a mandatory gun confiscation and “buyback” program - where you would be forced to hand over your guns in exchange for a government check!
Support NRA-ILA Now!

NONE of this would have the slightest impact on making our children, our homes, or our communities safer. And that’s sad, because now more than ever, we need our elected officials to take serious steps toward improving public safety… particularly in our nation’s schools.

But the fact is, despite their statements, the main goal of the gun banners in Congress is not to make schools safer, but to ban your guns and abolish every last sacred right you have under the Second Amendment..until they reduce your freedom to ashes.

Your NRA-ILA is fighting every hour of every day to hold the line, but there is no way we can win without your full and active participation RIGHT NOW.

President Barack Obama recently pledged to raise $20 million to ram his gun ban agenda through Congress. And Obama’s got plenty of rich, gun-hating friends in Hollywood, along with anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who will shower him with the money he needs to strip you of your gun rights.

I don’t have friends like that. I’ve got something much better…YOU. You know what’s at stake. You love your freedom and your country, and I know you’re willing to STAND AND FIGHT to save both of them.

So please, whatever you can afford to give NRA-ILA right now, I need you to do it.

Whether it’s as little as $10, or as much as $150 or more, every single dollar will go toward winning this once-in-a-generation battle to save our Second Amendment freedom. AND EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR YOU GIVE TODAY COUNTS!

Your contributions to NRA-ILA support our fight on your behalf in the halls of Congress and across the country. Your contributions are the lifeblood of our legislative and legal initiatives, research, educational pieces, press activities, and all of our pro-gun advertising and grassroots activism.

There is no other way to put it: Our strength comes from you. Our ability to win comes from you. That’s why I’m asking you to help save our Second Amendment by making NRA-ILA stronger than ever before.

Thank you for everything you do to support NRA-ILA and defend freedom. 

Please help as soon as you can.

Sincerely,

Support NRA-ILA Now!

Chris W. Cox
