Had enough credit card offers?

Are you getting too many credit card offers?  Did you know there is an official,  national site where you can opt-out of getting these?   I strongly recommend doing this, not just to safe the environment and the hassle of dealing with junk mail, but also as a security precaution.  These offers are easy to steal out of your mailbox, and the credit card companies will gladly send your "new card" to a "new address" without blinking.

This is also a good idea for those who have issues with the temptation of credit.  If you take the offers away,  you take most of the temptation away.   (People with college-age kids will understand all too well)

All it takes is name, address and social and you are good for 5 years.  If you want it to be permanent, you are going to need to print out a form and lick a stamp (they make it harder or purpose)

Official site is at:  Phone: 888-567-8688

More information available on this at the FTC
