Do you skim over those sales and marketing emails in the Gmail Promotions tab? Hey, I’m guilty of doing the same, so don’t feel judged. However, a dive into the inner workings of this tab has made me rethink my efforts to avoid its seemingly chaotic cluster of spam emails.

What is the Promotions Tab, Anyway?
You’re right, Jeannie Darcy—the Gmail Promotions Tab isn’t merely spam, even if it looks like it at first glance. Rather, the promo tab stores a collection of emails that have been automatically filtered away from your primary inbox, allowing you to better focus on messages that may be timely or important.
