How to Delete All Promotional Emails in Gmail

Having an email is necessary for all of your work and personal connections. With Gmail being the largest platform there is currently, you probably have one of your own. Aside from the emails you get from your subscriptions, friends, and co-workers, you might have noticed that there are promotional emails as well. If are cleaning your inbox, then getting rid of all the promotional emails from your Gmail is a part of it too.

What Are Promotional Emails in Gmail?

The promotions tab in Gmail contains advertisements and promotional emails from companies. These aren’t considered spam by Gmail’s auto-filter, so they’re put in the Promotions folder. They are not spam emails, since they could contain personalized offers from your favorite services or sites

If you don’t do anything about these promotional emails though, they will take up precious space in your inbox. Receiving all of these promotional emails can be irritating, but you don’t have to delete your Gmail account to escape them. Instead, just consider deleting all your mail in Gmail.
