Do you want to get rid of junk mail? Are you tired of your mailbox being filled with coupons?
Well, I was as well and wanted to find out how to get off of the mailing lists so the junk mail would stop. See the links below to reduce the amount of junk mail that you receive.
Each link will lead you to a form for you to fill out to opt-out of their mailing lists. These companies use direct mailing lists, so it might take 6-8 weeks until you notice a reduction in the junk mail that you receive.
Direct Marketing Association (DMA) Lists
The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) tracks consumers who prefer not to receive mail or telephone solicitations. The DMA can help opting out of lists produced by companies that subscribe to its Mail and Telephone Preference Services.
