It seems like I’m always receiving junk mail in my mailbox. Recently I decided I was going to figure out how to opt out of junk mail and credit card offers. Receiving tons of junk mail is most definitely not green. Not only is it wasteful, it’s also annoying.
How to Opt Out of Credit Card Offers
A few years ago, I was receiving many credit card offers in the mail. I had heard that every time you receive a letter extending credit that your credit score was lowered (false) so I wanted to stop the mailings quickly. I looked at the back of the offer, saw the website for Opt Out Pre Screen and filled out the information to have my name removed from the lists. It really does work for five years! I would advise you sign up for this even if you don’t receive a lot of credit card offers. It can’t hurt, plus it’s free!
How to Stop Junk Mail
DMAchoice is a free service to stop receiving junk mail. DMA Choice controls about 80% of junk mail, so it’s not 100% elimination, but it’s better than nothing. You can at least drastically reduce the amount of junk mail coming in your mail box.
Will you opt out of credit card offers and junk mail? Have you already done this?
