Things are back to normal for BTE and Joe Biden.
For all new readers: Welcome! I am currently on the mailing lists of Joe Biden and Donald Trump, though I have previously been on the mailing lists of 28 Democratic candidates! This blog breaks down recent emails with charts and excerpts. If you already know all of this, feel free to skip to the next chart!
It took some time for the Trump emails to kick in, so I started officially tracking his list on July 7. I have been tracking Biden’s for longer, but I will start comparing them as of July 7. All of these emails are going to a new email, and I have not donated, filled out surveys, signed petitions, or otherwise interacted with either candidate’s emails.
The rules I try to follow for the various categories are laid out in The Framework.
As usual, Joe Biden sent 3 emails to each of my accounts.
But, as you can see, only one of those emails to one account had a donation ask.
That was because I signed up for his virtual fundraiser tonight via my donor account. Biden sent me a thank you and the link to the fundraiser. On my non-donor account, he sent me a reminder that it was a thing and asked me to donate to join it.
Other than that, he sent his usual survey email and offering me a free sticker email.
In comparison with Biden offering me a free sticker, Trump is offering me a flag. It isn’t free, though.
Except… if you actually (bear with me), go to his website, and check out Trump’s own shop…
…you can save $5.
But hey, maybe that $5 covers shipping?
