...you've won a 1000 gift card" ad while on BBI on your phone? Ive gotten one twice in the last 2 Days and while I can navigate around it, it is at least mildly annoying and not what kinda of ad Eric wants here.

Just wanted to make sure its not just my device.
it's your device...

not BBI...actually it's just spam...I get it all the time on various sites on my phone...I always have to close out the page I am on and reopen...it's a pain because it usually pops up in the middle of an article or a video, as opposed to the beginning...

Anybody know of a low impact app or program to fend off theae things? Virtually all of the virus and spam protection I have downloaded slows my phone considerably.
Got the same thing today on my android

I got something similar before on my iphone, but it was from Amazon (or fake amazon). I installed an ad blocker from the app store and I haven't gotten it since.

This might not be limited to just BBI, but it was the only website that I got it on before the ad blocker.
