The continuing saga with Arlo ads--email to SVP of Customer Care

Pardon me for reaching out directly to you, but I am growing tired of getting the runaround from customer support when they can even be bothered to provide a response.  I contacted Arlo customer support at least as long ago as April of this year; I contacted Arlo via Twitter in March.  I updated my Google Play review in early April.  I published this blog post on the same day:  https://craft.getthefunout.com/2021/04/arlo-cameras-word-of-warning.html. For months, I have been receiving intrusive full-screen pop-up ads in my Arlo app trying to get me to use PayPal to pay my subscription.  This is an issue for me for several reasons: 1--there is no way to permanently dismiss this ad.  I have NEVER wanted to pay using PayPal, nor will I ever.  Despite that, I must endure this intrusive ad multiple times per month.  2--I am already paying for Arlo's services and do not appreciate being served ads within a service I actively subscribe to and pay for.  On top of that, I have around $500 in

Outfitting the Peloton home-gym upgrade

PSA--did you know you can probably ask your Peloton-owning friend to make you a profile (each bike can host up to 30 accounts, each free to make) and you can have access to the entire Peloton workout library?  If you dive in and buy a bike , use my referral code for $100 of free apparel & accessories:   2HXYR6 . By now we've all heard of Peloton and you more than likely have someone in your newsfeed who constantly posts their workout summaries.  If you're like me, you've probably spent a lot of time scoffing at the idea of a fancy exercise bike with on-demand classes.  And if you're really like me, you ended up getting a Peloton bike in the past few months and finally understand what the fuss was all about. It's amazing.
