£4-99 Offer to join plusnet

Hi, just received this email from Plusnet [Plusnet@comms.bt.com] offering Broadband for £4-99 a month for 12 months if I sign a contract with Plusnet, strange because I'm already with Plusnet ,have been for two years paying £5-74 with my referral off at the moment.
Just wondering if anyone else has received it,  I am out of contract at the moment ( and don't I know it,been billed wrong for the last 3 months)but even if it is genuine don't know if its worth signing again for £1 odd a month, it reads as below

Pretty sure that shouldn't have wound up in your inbox but having said that, I'm not sure how the dataset was compiled. Am I right in assuming it got sent to a non-Plusnet email address?

Can you find out, please Bob?
I've had the same email this evening, sent to one of my Plusnet aliases, of which I have many for different organisations. In this case it was an alias only ever used for registration with the online BT Shop.
So, have I been spammed by BT, with the blessing of Plusnet, or have I been spammed by my own ISP, aided by BT? Either way, it's not appreciated.  Shocked Angry Shocked

I'm in the process of finding out. Interesting comment about the BT Shop though because if that's the case I'd have expected to have received one of these myself. Perhaps it's on its way?

Re: £4-99 Offer to join plusnet

In my case I believe it's from BT online account. I have 2 telephone lines on the online account, mine and my parents, only my line has broadband.

It could be from BT Shop but as I'm registered as a BT worker and get staff discounts I believe it's not from that source. BT workers now get free broadband as part of their employment conditions. So why would BT shop send out BB offers to a BTemployee?

Hi, That makes sense, I bought a couple of things from the BT shop, can't remember which email address I gave but it most probably was the one they sent the email to.
