Tip: Get Less Junk Mail

Sick of getting credit offers that you never initiated? I get at least 3 credit-card offers each week. There’s an easy way to stop these:

1-888-5OPTOUT or OptOutPrescreen.com

I wouldn’t have noticed this offer was available to me if it weren’t for this new regulation requiring a statement in “12-point type – on the first page of the offer” letting me know I can stop unsolicited offers. You have the option of having your information removed for 5 years or permanently (you must mail back a form). If you’re wary of giving up your information you can read this page from the FTC.

The FTC also points to this website used for deleting yourself from direct marketing mailing lists.

So… what are you waiting for?
