The + Email Trick
If enjoy free trials and saving money, then you’ll want to learn this email trick. Let’s say you want to try Netflix free for a month…again and again. Technically, you can create a new email address every month and get access to a free trial over and over. Instead, you can enter firstname.lastname@example.org for example (you’ll want to do this with your own email, not mine) to trick Netflix into thinking you are using a new email address.
You can add “+whatever” to your email address and it will work as intended. You could enter email@example.com the first month and firstname.lastname@example.org etc. for the following months.
This is also handy if you want to test whether or not a company is handing off your email address to others. At the conference I just attended, I registered for a party hosted by a sponsor using this trick. If I get any spam emails sent to that newly created email address, I’ll know who is giving out my email.
