Tired of junk mail in your mailbox: unwanted retail coupons, high APR credit card offers, strange catalogues for weird products? Here are three easy steps to get rid of junk mail forever.
You can opt-out of all of the above and more by leveraging the DMA Choice tool from the Data & Marketing Association Organization (DMA.org)
- Create an account by signing up @ DMA Choice
- Once you login you should see the following:
- From this screen, you can navigate to any of the four options to limit/stop mail pieces such as Catalogs, Magazine Offers, Other Mail Offers, Credit Offers from various retailers, financial institutions and other businesses.
It’s that simple, three easy steps and you have just liberated your mailbox.
Why Does This Work?
Most companies that execute direct mail marketing campaigns use this opt-out list from the DMA to scrub their mailing list; before the mail, pieces are delivered to the print houses and the United States Postal Service.
If you are in the UK try the following link to stop junk mail.

Great article, thanks for the tip
Thanks for reading. Keeps your mail box clean like a whistle!
I assume this only works in the USA? The picture is a UK Royal Mail post box, which is a bit confusing.
Correct this works only in the USA. But I am sure there is a comparable service in the UK.
