More Easy steps to the Junk Mail Diet

More Easy steps to the Junk Mail Diet

3.  Avoid getting on even more mailing lists. Take precautions whenever you submit your name and address to anyone. If you’re filling out a form such as a warranty, subscription, raffle, customer information card, credit card application, membership for an organization, etc., add the phrase “please do not rent, sell, or trade my name or address” next to the other information you provide. Repeat these same magic words every time you’re giving a company or organization your name and address over the phone or Internet, such as when ordering a catalog or making a purchase. The sales representative will then flag your name and preference in their computer.

4.  End Credit Card Solicitations. To eliminate credit card promotional mailings, call 1-888-567-8688 (that’s 888-5OPT-OUT) or visit www.optoutprescreen.com. You will have the opportunity to choose either a five-year removal or a permanent removal.For your personal credit cards, ask the company to place you on their “in house” list that is not sold or traded to other companies.
