How To Stop Junk Mail

Stop Junk Mail by Opting Out with GreenDimes
GreenDimes goes after direct marketing and mailing lists --

they have over 4,500 contacts they track -- on your behalf,

reducing the volume of junk mail that shows up in your

mailbox by up to 90 percent. Depending on whether or not you

want to pay for it, they offer different levels of service:

The free version offers catalog removal and do-it-yourself

tools to get off various lists; the paid service offers

greater control, regular monitoring, and even some trees

planted on your behalf. And, GreenDimes is paying each of

the first 5 million customers who sign up $1 for their

trouble.

Pros: Three service levels -- one free, two paid -- let you

choose the level of service that best fits your needs. And,

the paid levels include perks like free tree-planting in

your name.
Cons: It costs a bit of cash -- a one-time fee of either $20

or $36 -- to get the most comprehensive services.

Get Rid Yourself of Junk Mail with 41pounds.org
Pledging to cut the flow of junk to your mailbox by 80 - 95

percent, 41pounds.org takes their name from the accrued

weight of all the junk mail the average adult receives each

year. $41 gets you a five-year subscription to the service,

which contacts 20 to 30 direct marketing and catalog

companies on your behalf, instructing them to remove your

name from their distribution lists. This includes almost all

credit card offers, coupon mailers, sweepstakes entries,

magazine offers and insurance promotions, as well as any

catalogs you specify. They also include several prepaid

envelopes for use when companies required a signed piece of

paper to remove you from the list.

Pros: The subscription service goes to work for you,

providing comprehensive service for an extended period; if

junk mail starts showing up before your subscription is up,

they'll go to bat for you. Plus, "more than 1/3" of the fee

goes to support a non-profit of your choice; included on

their list of supported organizations are American Forests,

Trees for the Future and Friends of the Urban Forest, along

with more tree-friendly and other green and community

nonprofits.
Cons: It costs $41 -- about 68 cents per month -- to cut the

junk mail down. You can do most everything 41pounds does for

you, but it'll take much more time and effort than signing

up with them will.

Stop Junk Mail Before it Starts

Take preventative action, and reduce the likelihood that

you'll be overrun by junk mail. By doing things like 1.

cutting back on entering sweepstakes, 2. being wary of

product warranty cards (the ones that don't require a proof

of purchase or receipt), and 3. avoiding signing up for in-

store rewards cards, you'll have less of your personal

information out there for marketers to sink their claws

into.

Pros: It's free, easy, and your due diligence can go a long

way; an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure.

Cons: There are no guarantees about how much you'll benefit,

or how much the flood of junk mail will be reduced; still,

it sure can't hurt.
