Do you shop online?
The convenience of online shopping makes it an attractive option when time is limited.
Want to continue to receive updates about clearance sales without cluttering up your regular email account?
Create an email to use just for online shopping
Use a free email account (Live, Gmail, etc.) which has many advantages:
- All communication regarding shopping goes in one place.
- Your regular email account isn’t cluttered with sales updates.
- Live and Gmail have wonderful spam filters.
- If spam ever gets to be a problem you can easily:
- Create a new email account
- Update your profile information only with the stores you purchase items from.
- Delete the older email account.
- If you change internet providers, your shopping email account isn’t effected.
Good idea and one that works well indeed. I have set up different email accounts for different purposes and one of them has NOT been for online shopping yet. Guess I’ll have to create another one as this is a good way of filtering these type of emails. I occasionally like to “take a peak” on items that have discounts, so this route will make it much easier.
I try to keep things like that from cluttering my email. I should make one for school correspondence…yikes that stuff adds up too.

I have an email just for shopping online and it’s very convenient plus I never worry about sales email, etc. since I don’t use it for personal use anyways. Plus it makes sense if you are one of those that has a one of those ‘odd’ email names if you know what I mean…lol.
Thanks for sharing us this simple yet overlooked method to easy shopping online. I’ll make a new account at Gmail solely for my online shopping after this. I often use my usual email account and it’s very cluttered. Sometimes I have to delete many messages just to get to the important ones.
There are some email i m using but this way i haven’t started yet, It seems here that this way one can do the best shopping online and the tips are great to follow here for creating and shopping as well.
Though i never thought about it. But after reading it, i am completely agreed with it. Thanks.
Simple but really ingenious way for keeping your main email account nice and clean. Cool.

I have also utilized multiple accounts for everything except online shopping. And I wonder why my main inbox is so cluttered with shopping emails. This is a great idea for almost everything you do.
