  Me too! I already have their Ap but seldom use it. Ordering is harder with it and I can't get on forums so why have it.?

  It takes me several times to get the huge pop up off!

Exactly!  Why don't people use these?   I've never seen any kind of pop up here or anywhere else because I use either ublock or adblock (depending on which browser I'm using).

Thanks for the screenshot.

 

That's interesting because I use Safari on my IPad and I've never seen that.  

 

I do use AdBlocker, but that doesn't prevent all the small pop ups here.  Although a few disappear once I sign in.

This website is a complete and total disaster. I haven't seen the app popup yet, but this is the first time I have been able to sign on in a week.

By showing this annoying ad, it makes me NEVER want to access their website.  As usual, they overdue everything!

@jackthebear and @chickenbutt.

Most of us (from what I can tell) do use them.

As I said in my post, "the usual adblocking or pop-up blocking settings and mobile apps are not preventing this.  I have them enabled but even so this appeared at the top of the page."

We do use them.

Some ads on websites, coded in as an integral part of the functions of the sites themselves, are not suppressed by settings on devices or added 3rd-party ad-blocking apps.

This is appearing on mobile devices only because it is advertising the mobile app for mobile devices.

Those using computers shouldn't see it.

Also, my guess is since it's brand new the site is "rolling it out" gradually only to some sessions (logged in or just reading) as they've been known to do in the past.

 

eta:  You're welcome, @geezerette!😊

I have to click "NO" every time I  come to the website now. Wonder how long this will go on for?

My coffee hadn't kicked in yet when I first read your post.   

 

I wondered,  hmmm ... just how many times a month would you have to sign on to the Mobil Gas website .... LOL  Woman LOL

Ah, I didn't get the part about people who are seeing these ads/popups are using their phone, in lieu of a computer.  d'oh!   I don't do internet stuff on my phone because I have enough trouble seeing, so a phone screen is just way too small for me.  About all I do is check, if I get emails, after I've turned off the laptop.

 

Always great seeing ya, dooB!  Heart
