LivingSocial is an online shop for various travel, gift, and “deals”. When you sign up for an account with LivingSocial, you already agree to let them use your email address in hopes of emailing you relevant “deals” for you to choose from based on things you checked out.
Unfortunately, they have become very dependent on sending emails which end up overloading your Gmail inbox. LivingSocial used to be known as the worlds' #1 email spammer, even placing above other sites like Facebook and Amazon. In short, it’s one big mess for your Gmail account that you get stuck with.
- Install Block Sender for Gmail by clicking the “Install” button found in the upper right-hand corner of this site. The installation won’t take long. Open Gmail when it is done.
- After signing up for a Block Sender account and linking your Gmail account to Block Sender, open the unwanted email from LivingSocial, and click the "Block" button on the messages toolbar.
- Select the "Emails from this sender" option.
Once this is done, you will no longer receive emails from that LivingSocial email account. If you ever decide you want to start receiving their emails again you can simply unblock the email.
