Arrow Shred your credit card junk mail

Someone at work posted this and I thought you folks might find it interesting. I've been shredding all things credit card related for a while, but will now make double sure they get fed to the shredder. Make sure you read all four pages.

If you have not yet opt out of all those credit card offers you might want to look here.

I do battle with the credit card offers by stuffing everything from their mailing back into their postage paid envelope and sending it back to the cc company. they have to pay the postage, then pay someone to open and sort the mail, then dispose of the mail. let them deal with all the junk mail. if everyone did this we could eliminate this problem rather quickly.

I have a similar doing:
I put back different return form in a different envelopes.
So they receive someone's else junk...

I do the same thing (mail it back to them) every now and then... especially when I get two or three at the same time from different companies. I think I'm doing them a service by mailing them their competitors info. Plus, it makes me smile while I do it. Usually I just tear them into little pieces on my way from the mailbox to the garbage in the garage.
