Kobo Reading Life email hasn't arrived in a while

Somebody posted their recent Kobo Reading Life stats in another thread, and that got me to thinking. When was the last time I received that mailing? So I looked into it, and the last time I received that mailing was August 2022.

There is a link in the email to view those stats in a browser, but that only loads empty data as you can see in the attached photo. I checked my account settings on kobo.com, and I have mailings authorized.

Is this common with others? Are only a few people receiving Kobo Reading Life emails? Perhaps there's a way to turn it back on?

I believe you were the one who posted your recent stats in another thread. Do you recall receiving that email before April, too?

I'm not sure I want to reach out to Kobo CS about it. They'll just insist that I reset my firmware. 🙄

I'm glad I'm not alone since others are claiming they've never even received them!

I wonder if the mailing depends on which Kobo store you shop from. I shop from the United States store.

Yes. I has arrived on a more or less monthly basis as Your Kobo Reading Life starting in 2017 when it only had Page Flips and Hours Read and switching to Your Kobo Plus Reading Life when I went with Kobo Plus.

Lucky you! Still no luck for me.

I decided to go ahead and contact Kobo CS. It was the typical runaround. Despite me telling the first rep that I have marketing turned on already and that I receive daily mailings, he sent me a FAQ on how to turn on marketing. 🙄

The second rep was more helpful. She didnít know what mailing I was talking about, but she requested screen shots. Then she escalated the case. Maybe Iíll hear from them next week.

If people are wondering why I care so much about this, I read on a Clara HD, an Elipsa, and my iPhone and iPad with the Kobo apps. They all have separate reading stats, so itís nice to have the one mailing that collates all device stats into one. 🤷🏻*♂️

DNSB, you shop out of the Canadian store, donít you? I wonder if itís a regional mailing now.

Yes, I use the Canadian store. Possibly. I could ask about whether that is the case but no guarantees on an answer.

I've never received it nor do I really want to receive it. And, though I'm a heavy reader, stats is never something I've cared about.

If I had actual evidence about how much I read, I might need a 12-step program.

Iím still going back-and-forth with customer service. I havenít had a chance to suggest maybe this is a regional issue. Theyíre still having a hard time processing that I receive all emails except this one. LOL Theyíve had me verify that I am receiving mailings two or three times.

Well, I assume I receive all the mailings. One of the CS reps asked me if I received all other mailings except this one, and I explained that I really wouldnít know. Since Iím not getting this one, maybe Iím missing others.
