How to Stop Amazon from Bombarding You with Unwanted Notifications

Are you tired of being bombarded with unnecessary notifications from Amazon? Whether it's email updates, app alerts, Alexa reminders, or phone notifications, it can be overwhelming. Most of these notifications are not even relevant to your needs. But don't worry, there are ways to disable these unwanted notifications and regain control over your digital life. In this article, we will guide you through the process of disabling Amazon email, Alexa, and app notifications.

Disable Amazon App Notifications

Amazon notifications are important for keeping track of your upcoming deliveries. However, they also send a lot of marketing and promotional notifications that can clutter your device. The good news is that you can customize your settings to receive only the relevant notifications. Here's how:

  1. Open the Amazon app and tap the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) at the bottom right.
  2. Select “Settings” from the drop-down list.
  3. Tap on “Notifications” to manage your notification preferences.
  4. Under “Account and shipping,” toggle off the notifications you don't want to receive.
  5. For offers, recommendations, and other suggestions, go to “Deals and recommendations” and toggle off individual notifications or turn off all notifications together.
  6. To disable notifications about product reviews, go to “Feedback” and turn off the toggle.

Disable Amazon Emails

Amazon often sends notifications and order-related information via email. While some of these emails are useful, they also send a significant number of marketing emails that can clutter your inbox. Here's how you can disable unwanted Amazon emails:

  1. Log in to your Amazon account on your desktop browser.
  2. Click on “Accounts & Lists.”
  3. Scroll down and select “Communication and content.”
  4. Manage and disable emails related to subscriptions in the “Email subscriptions” section.
  5. Disable marketing and promotional emails by clicking on “Communication preferences” and selecting “Do not send me marketing information by mail.”
  6. Uncheck the categories of promotional emails you don't want to receive or select “Do not send me any marketing emails for now” to disable all categories.
  7. Finally, click on “Update” to save your changes.

Disable Alexa Shopping Notifications

Although you can manage Alexa notifications from the Amazon app, you can only enable or disable all notifications and not control individual options. Here's how to manage Alexa shopping notifications:

  1. Open your Amazon account in a desktop browser.
  2. Go to “Account & Lists” and select “Communication and content.”
  3. Click on “Alexa shopping notifications.”
  4. Disable individual notifications related to returns, order updates, delivery notifications, and more by toggling off the respective options.

By following these steps, you can regain control over the barrage of notifications from Amazon and ensure that you only receive the ones that are truly important to you. Remember, it's your digital life, and you have the power to customize it according to your preferences.

Welcome to the jungle of Amazon notifications, where updates are just a tap away. But with a few adjustments to your settings, you can put an end to the unnecessary clutter and enjoy a more streamlined experience. So go ahead, take back control, and enjoy a more peaceful digital journey.
