Using a temporary email for free trials

Ever signed up for a free trial and realized it wasn't worth it? Regret. It's OK, it happens to all of us at least once.

Yes, it only takes 2 seconds to give out your email address but it can take a lifetime to stop receiving unwanted emails. Free trials are the ultimate bait. The hype up their service, tell you that you don't even need to enter a credit card, just fill out this 1 little box with your email and you'll have access. It seems so simple. It seems so easy. You really want that free trial... So you do it and then what happens next. Well, on rare occasions you actually like the service, everything is perfect and you go about your business. But rare is what rare is: "not occurring very often".

Commonly, meaning more often than rarely, you don't like or end up wanting what the free trial offers. This is always the hard part, the break up. It really doesn't matter if we're talking about personal relationship break ups or person to company break ups, they're rough. The later shouldn't be. If we tell a company that we no longer want their service, it should end, no questions asked. This goes for cancelling credit cards, cable service and/or magazine subscriptions. However, usually the company tries really hard to keep you, asking you why you want to leave, what was the issue in the relationship etc... When the company has your personal information, say your personal email address, it's even harder to cut ties.

Take unsubscribing from emails, alerts and notifications. It used to be you just unsubscribed, now you have a huge list of things to unsubscribe from: Unsubscribe from emails about promotional offers, unsubscribe from emails when someone mentions my name, unsubscribe from weekly emails, unsubscribe from monthly emails and on and on and on. One of the biggest issues with all these emails is that it takes away from your productivity.

When you check your email, it should be fast and fluid. You shouldn't have to stop to delete and mark as SPAM all these unwanted emails. Especially when the email says something like this: "We notice you haven't logged in for 6 months and hope to see you back soon". That's just ridiculous, there's a reason why we haven't logged in for 6 months and it's not because we find you site useful.

Avoid these headaches. Avoid the lost time and productivity. Use a temporary email. EmailOnDeck provides you with free temporary emails so that you can sign up for free trials and determine if you really want to use the service or not. If you decide you don't want to use the service, you don't have to ever worry about getting another unwanted email.

Be safe out there.
