In a post-Christmas meltdown of sorts, Bloomingdale's accidentally sent "hundreds of emails... in 24 hours" according to one email blast recipient posting on the department store's Facebook page. The company followed up the barrage with a note that read, "Due to a technical error yesterday, you may have received an unusual number of emails from us. The issue has been resolved and we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused." We've reached out to the retailer for comment, but in the meantime, be thankful for the Google promo tab.
