It can be frustrating to have your mail filled with useless junk, and it isn't good for the environment either. One of the common pieces of junk mail you may receive is offers from AAA. All that mail you are throwing away will end up in landfills.
DoNotMail is here to help. You only need to follow three simple steps, and your junk mail will disappear.
What Counts as Physical Spam/Junk Mail?
Junk mail is any unsolicited mail you receive. For example, advertisements for new windows, catalogs to local stores, , and credit offers all count as junk mail.
Why Am I Getting Junk Mail in the First Place?
Here are some common reasons:
- You signed up for a company promotion.
- Credit bureaus sold or exposed your information.
- A company you willingly gave your information to had a data breach
Can I Opt-Out of Junk Mail on Behalf of Someone Else?
You may be wondering if you can opt out of junk mail for someone else. The good news is, yes, you can help someone else get rid of their junk mail.
Should I Opt-Out Permanently or Just for a Certain Time Period?
If the junk mail you receive is something you will never be interested in pursuing, then it would be in your best interest to opt out permanently. Otherwise, it is just a waste of paper and will continuously bother you.
However, if the junk mail you are receiving is something you may consider later, you may choose to temporarily opt out. For example, if you are getting ads for replacing windows, and you know your windows are set to last about five more years, you may opt-out of receiving the ads for five years. Then, at the point when you are looking to replace your windows, the ads would return.
How to Stop Junk Mail by Yourself
Here are three ways to stop getting so much junk mail:
|Cancel credit card offers||Call 1-888-567-8688 to get off the mailing lists that TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax usually use.
You will be connected to a 24-hour phone line where you will have to give your full name, address, telephone number, and social security number. You may remove your name for five years over the phone or forever by sending in a printed form.
|Stop your name from being shared with marketers||Whenever you enter a contest, subscribe to a magazine, order a product by mail, send in a warranty card or in any way give your name and address to a company, there is a good chance you end up on a mailing list. Once you are on a mailing list, the company may sell your information to other businesses. Consider writing something to the effect of "Please don't sell or rent my name" or "No mailing lists" next to your name. It's not guaranteed to work but may cut down on how much mail you receive.|
|Ask companies to stop sending you catalogs||Call the company’s toll-free service number and ask them to remove you from the mailing list.
You may also be able to request your name be removed via the company's website, a letter, or a postcard. Make sure you know how your name and address appear on the catalog you are getting, as that will make it easier for them to find you in their system.
