I just gave you money and now you want my email?!?!?!?

I'd like to think that my parents taught me a few manners and some of those are that, within reason, I should answer questions politely when I am asked. Sometimes, I wonder what that information is used for - especially when stores start asking for my email when I make a purchase. Well, it doesn't really take the Vulcan Mind Meld to figure this out, right? They are going to put me on their mailing list. No harm, no foul. 

Sure enough. I'm on some new mailing lists now that the holidays are over, but that's not all. I've also received offers for free magazines from two of these stores. One is a bricks-and-mortar store and the other is an online store. I'm not sure if there's a threshold of purchase amount or not but it'll be something to watch and observe. I'd also love to hear if anyone else has had a similar experience.
