No more credit card offers

I have good credit. I've carefully managed my finances my whole life, as a matter of prudence and one of practicality. The downside is that my mailbox is stuffed with credit card offers. If I had a wood stove, I could heat my house with the junk mail.

Today I was tricked into opening a rather clever offer. The benefit to me was that they had very clear opt-out instructions on the back. I went to this website, and in 30 seconds had opted out of offers for the next five years. Who knows if it'll diminish the volume, but we shall see. Well worth the try.
