Fingerhut - blowing up my spam filter

Some way or another, Fingerhut got my email address (ive never shopped there before).  They have sent me pre-qualified offers and they send me almost daily emails.  Kind of ridiculous.  I wish AMEX would send me emails of offers or Chase or maybe even Citi.  /sigh

 

One day I'll have better trash in my trash bin!

 

(EDIT: Just check - AMEX still hasnt done an updated account review.  Last SP was 10/18 with the review on 10/27.  They said they do a review every month.  I hate being eligible for 61xCLI request but having to sit on it until they update their AR info.)

Re: Fingerhut - blowing up my spam filter

They have been blowing up my physical mail box. I see a full mailbox, get happy. Hope its some new magazines, some CC apps, and no. Its Fingerhuts big a** catalog!! Serious question, who orders from those huge catalogs? I havent seen those since at my grandparents house in the late 80s/early 90s (i used to love the jcpenny and sears christmas catalog btw)

Re: Fingerhut - blowing up my spam filter

The more important question, and the one to which I've yet to find an answer, is: What the heck is a Fingerhut?

a website that pretty much approves anyone for their online store card that over charges on everything, basically it's a way into rebuilding credit for a lot of people who don't have the credit score to even get a secured credit card =\  still leaps and bounds better than first premier or credit one imo.

I'm familiar with the entity.  I'm questioning their choice of name.
