6 Ways to remove Junk mail forever

0
Pin It

If you’re sick of junk mail, stop putting off putting a stop to it, because you can actually make a difference by implementing the following 6 strategies. Though you won’t be able to completely eliminate junk mail, the following approaches will considerably de-clutter your mail box.1P

  1. Get off marketing lists. This is done by having the Direct Marketing Association contact direct mail companies and instruct them to stop sending you mail. Go to DMACHOICE.org to get started and free yourself of mail offerings from magazines, catalogues and credit card companies, to name a few. To stop credit card offers only, sign up with OptOutPrescreen.com. For optimal results, sign up for both.
  2. Look for a “privacy notice” in the mail from your credit card issuer or bank, because this notice has an opt-out choice to avoid getting marketing material. However, you may have tossed this notice, thinking it was junk mail (it’s actually not), so contact your bank or credit card company and inquire about their privacy policy. Don’t stop there; contact any entity that deals with your money, such as your auto insurance company.
  3. Sign up for the free TrustedID Mail Preference Service. This provides companies that you can seek the opt-out instructions for.
  4. For $35, 41pounds.org will stifle mail offers.
  5. Do not get a print magazine subscription. Otherwise you’ll set yourself up for reams of third-party junk mail. See if there’s a digital version of the magazine or if your gym has it available.
  6. Go electronic. To stop junk mail from coming with your snail mail bills, switch to electronic billing.
