This reengagement email was sent to a Macy’s subscriber who hadn’t opened or interacted with an email from the retailer in several months. “Hurry & say yes to Macy’s emails…the clock’s ticking!” was the subject line of the email.

A friend (and fellow Frox shopper) asked the recipient if she had gotten a $15 Frox gift certificate, which prompted a search of the trash folder to retrieve the email.
