We've been making some changes under the hood about how our newsletter subscriptions are managed. As a result, some SE'ers may receive a few confirmation emails to verify their preferences.
You can always manage your newsletter subscription options through your Serious Eats profile. When logged in, click on "Account" in the upper right corner, and check the boxes for newsletters you'd like to be subscribed to. Our newsletter service, MailChimp, may send you an email to confirm your new subscriptions, and once they are confirmed, you'll start receiving our newsletters.
And, as always, we do not share or sell our email lists. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
