Post Pissed about Junk Mail? Try This

When you get ads in your phone or utility bill, include them with the payment. Let them throw it away.

When you get those pre approved letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and junk like that, most of them come postage paid return envelopes, right? Well, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in cool little envelopes!

Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Or a coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that day, then send them their application back! If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on you send them.

You can send it back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing!

Eventually, the banks and credit card companies will begin getting all junk back in the mail. Let's let them know what it's like to get junk and best of all THEY'RE paying for it! Twice!

Let's help keep our postal service busy since they say e- mail is into their business, and that's why they need to increase postage. Send this to a friend or two or three...or fifty...

This is probably the most useful chain-mail type thing I've come across. Great idea, that chit pisses me off so much.

That is the BEST suggestion I have ever heard!!!!

It will now become my family's standard operating procedure.

Thanks again for the suggestion,
Sean

To The Top

Guys, lets all do this. I cannot wait until I get home. I usually get about two junk mails a day that I can send back.

This is GREAT. Pass it on.
