We are finally getting a new refrigerator. Turns out Excel Energy has a rebate for getting a new one, and will come and pick up our old one as long as it’s still operational. (We’ll see if it’s quieter than the one that I yell at.)
So in making our decision, I first went online to gauge how many cubic feet our Frigidaire is (18). The next day I noticed a refrigerator ad when I got on the internet. I don’t ordinarily pay ANY mind to what ads are there, but the fridge ones caught me, and I’ve started paying attention. Here are some examples of what shows up:
- solar panels
- Lincoln Continental
- John Deere
- Walgreens Rewards
- Build.com (refrig)
- Sears (refrig)
and ironically enough, a box that says:
- Click Here to Start Blocking Ads
And then of course there are the Suggested Posts on Facebook…
- Viking River Cruises
- a home safety equipment place with Grippers for bathtub
- Toyota USA
- etee (apparently an alternative to plastic wrap)
to name a few.
For some of them, I can imagine how they came to be part of my internet experience, but Lincoln Continental? Do any of you bloggers know the ins and outs of this?
