I get asked for my phone number at the register all the time. I just politely say that I don't give out my phone number. Because I don't.
We give them the number that's been disconnected ;D

Which is great unless it's been assigned to someone else by now?
Yes because of that we used to receive phone calls for the Khans; a couple fond of making and then reneging on pledges to charities.

Now I suppose those charities call a tow truck business that got the number after we dropped that line.

Please tell me you Shatnered after every one of those phone calls

Well luckily Best Buy is a reputable business and not a gang of professional spammers.  So you should be able to set up a filter easily.

There should be an unsubscribe link in the emails, the better companies will honor those and stop sending you emails.

I got a few things from Amazon UK and within hours I was getting flooded, it was easy to turn it off and they haven't sent me a thing since.

If I didn't get spammed by Emails from restaurants I eat at and stores I shop at, I'd hardly ever get Email. It's more-or-less a place I go to check for pizza coupons and shipment notifications these days. :^)
