Infinity website UX

So, I received this Infinity Facebook ad It immediately hit me up for my postal code. It doesn’t need to do that. The best a postal code can give you is a neighbourhood. And maybe because of me entering my old postal code from back when I lived in Mississauga, they will start to get […]
