Spirit Airlines 'Romney Wins' Email: Will You Boycott for the Dirty Trick?

Spirit Airlines sent out an email to its subscribers Tuesday night declaring that Romney had won... way before the vote was even decided. It was really just a rouse to get people to open the mail containing a marketing message about "incredibly low fares." Should we boycott companies that sink to this level? Or just laugh it off?

Spirit Airlines sent an email to subscribers early Tuesday with a subject line, "Romney Wins!" But most consumers didn't find it funny and took to Twitter to complain.

    False advertising to the extreme. Romney lost, and so will they. (Loose customers, that is.)

    ..they should have said "..What's-his-name Johnson (the Libertarian) wins the presidency.." That REALLY would have gotten peoples' attention..

    I think people were mad because they thought Romney won the ellection when they saw the subject of the email which was just "Romney Wins".

    Financially exploiting low-information consumers is as American as Mrs Smiths Classic Apple Pie (now with even more yummy deliciousness!!).

    Why would anyone get tricked by this? I mean, it's ALL OVER THE INTERNET that Obama won
  • S123 Chaguy 2012/11/08 06:52:16
    It was before the vote was decided.
  • Chaguy S123 2012/11/08 22:20:07
    Still, then you could just check and see that it's not over yet.

    I would laugh it off while boycotting. And, I would forever remember the names of the companies involved in the dirty tricks. They'd not get a penny from me ever.

    I've been getting those coupons emails for weeks. They jump back and forth between Obama winning & Romney winning. Its a joke. I am on their email subscription.
    Here is one I found in my deleted folder.
    Obama wins

    NBC and CBS both declared Obama the winner with 5% votes counted.

    Kinda hard to boycott something you never use.

    It's actually kind of funny - it didn't say he won the election just that he "Wins" by getting a low fare...like Mittens need to fly on a discount airline !
  • Vieuphoria 2012/11/07 18:44:35

    It's evil and wrong or something
  • S123 Vieuphoria 2012/11/07 20:33:55
    So, you meant to vote "Boycott"?
  • Vieuphoria S123 2012/11/07 20:40:15
    Sarcasm apparently doen't translate
  • S123 Vieuphoria 2012/11/07 20:48:52
    Oh ok, so you think it was funny. Do you think it was a good idea? Personally I think it was a bad idea to do somthing that would annoy people but I don't think it's worth boycotting them.
  • Vieuphoria S123 2012/11/07 20:51:30
    I don't think it was a good or a bad idea. I'm not really that fussed about it. It's just marketing aimed at the widest possible audience, which is what most companies try to do.
