Sometimes you can be too lucky
Posted by Martin on April 1, 2010
Like many of you, I subscribe the Foundry Miniatures e-mail newsletter. So you can imagine how pleased I was to receive an e-mail this morning telling me that I was one of
“A restricted number of valued customers who have been selected at random from our database to receive the offer of a 20% discount on anything they buy from our website between now and 6th April 2010.”
The funny thing is that I’m subscribed to the Foundry newsletter twice with two different e-mail addresses. And it turns out that I’m one of the “restricted number of valued customers” twice over. Hmmm.
Now either I’m genuinely lucky or there’s a surprisingly large number of other lucky people out there. I wonder just how lucky I am and how restricted the number is.
I’d be curious to know if you’ve received something similar.
UPDATE 2/4/2010: Strangely, in the less-than-24 hours since I published this post, I’ve only heard from people who have been as “valued” as me. I’d really like to know if there are any subscribers to the Foundry newsletter who have not received this offer.
