Help, I can’t unsubscribe to ’s emails!

When you go to Tonik, a health insurance provider which is part of Anthem Blue Cross, you are required to give them your email address to find out what the cost of the specific plans are. Here’s the trick though, you cannot easily unsubscribe from their mailing list. What’s the problem, did they just make a mistake with the email address? A big company like them, I doubt it. I think that they know and don’t care. If you can’t unsubscribe to their emails, then they can keep sending you spam! It says all I had to do was send a blank email. That’s what I did and this is what I got back.

Here are the email messages I got from Tonik when I tried to unsubscribe.

Subject: Still friends?

We get it, you’re the noncommittal type. And we’re fine with
that, but since this is our last conversation, you might consider revisiting tonikhealth.com and applying for one of our plans.

As we’re sure you’ll remember, Tonik is straight-up, affordable health coverage offered by Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Company. If you’re under 30, we can help cover you for $70 to $227 a month. Prices are subject to change and vary depending on your age, where you live, and your medical history.

Hopefully, you’ll reconsider and apply for one of our plans today. If not, please think about us every once in a while.

I’d like to save a friend some dough. Send this to them now.
