So there are so many websites that will provide you this type of service for email marketing. But some of them are very expensive and some of them are cheaper.

You have to describe your use case effectively because if you do not describe it correctly they will not accept your request. So you have to convince them that you are not misusing their service. I also applied it for and here is my use case description.
