I have subscribed to American Greetings since 2002, but since October 2015 there have been constant emails from them saying my account is going to expire.  Since I am out of work right now, I do not want to renew.  If I had wanted to renew, I would have.

American Greetings uses coercive tactics in that their spam does not have an "unsubscribe" link, and you must log in and leave a message in a form stating that you do not want to renew. 

Requiring one to submit a form (even on the internet) that you do not want to renew is similar to the coercive tactics used by the United Way in the 1980's.  You had to sign a form stating  that you did not want to give to the United Way.

American Greetings:  Get this.  I do not want to subscribe anymore, GET ME OFF THE MAILING LIST, AND DO NOT AUTO-ENROLL ME.
