If you don’t wish to receive emails from us you can click the ‘unsubscribe’ link that will be found at the bottom of all emails from CheckoutSmart.
These will be general notifications about our latest offers and location-based messages when you are near a venue or shop with an offer. Both types of notification can be controlled in the settings section of the app.
