Whether you willingly signed up in the naive hope that maybe this one would prove useful, or your email address just magically appeared on the list, chances are your inbox is plagued by an onslaught of undesirable newsletters on the daily. So it takes a lot to make it into the most-hated list.
Unsubscribing from these emails can take a lot of effort. You have to click things—several times! Only the most obnoxious—the incessant crème de la crème—are worthy of that kind of exertion.
Now, the unsubscribe service Unroll.me has rounded up the most aggravating email mailing lists we unsubscribed from in 2013 and ranked them by the numbers. Of course, the rankings are based on the people who use Unroll.me, but from the looks of this list, the results seem pretty applicable to the population at large.
Here are the top 10 unsubscribed newsletters of year; you can head on over to Unroll.Me for the full lineup. As for our champion, 1800Flowers.com, we offer you a hearty congratulations on your win and ask that you never email us ever again.
