Default Bundle of Holding email

So I got this email yesterday:

A message from Game Designers' Workshop (GDW) via (stop receiving Game Designers' Workshop (GDW) messages.) Why did I get this email?

We're please to announce our MegaTraveller Bundle of Holding promotion now through April 6. Here's the Link:

Traveller! After a thousand years, the interstellar Imperium has splintered into warring empires. A widespread Rebellion has reached even to the Spinward Marches. This is the setting of MegaTraveller, GDW's 1987 space-opera tabletop roleplaying game of adventure in the Shattered Imperium -- a follow-up to the pioneering SFRPG Traveller. Now our fellowship of Far Futurists brings you the MegaTraveller Bundle with almost the entire GDW line for a bargain price. Our Player's Collection (US$5.95, retail value $40) includes the complete MegaTraveller rules in three books, along with the line's most highly praised supplement, the Rebellion Sourcebook.

PLAYER'S COLLECTION ($5.95 - retail $40)

MegaTraveller Core Set
Players Handbook ($10)
Referee's Handbook ($10)
Imperial Encyclopedia ($10)
Rebellion Sourcebook ($10)

There's More! If you pay more than the current threshold price (even by just a penny), you'll get promoted and receive all five supplements in our Referee's Collection (retail value $50), including the Referee's Companion and two titles by Nebula-nominated science fiction novelist Charles Gannon. It's everything you need for your own space-opera campaign of war and rebuilding across the Shattered Imperium.

REFEREE'S COLLECTION (threshold starts at $15.95 - retail $50)

Referee's Companion ($10)
Hard Times ($10)
COACC ($10)
Arrival Vengeance ($10)
Astrogator's Guide to the Diaspora Sector ($10)

Bundle of Holding titles are always absolutely free of DRM, so you can move and copy them freely among all your tablets, laptops, smartphones, and music players.

And if we add any new titles after launch, ALL customers who previously purchased the bundle automatically receive the newly added title, REGARDLESS of whether or not they paid higher than average. This is your reward for buying early.

Currently it appears that to get the bonus material you need to spend about $20. I have the FFE DVD with all this (and more) on it. I'm really curious as to why my email address was mined from RPG to be given to another site to attempt to sell me something that I already own.

Anybody else get this email?
