OK so this one has been around for awhile but bears repeating. Optoutprescreen.com lets you opt out of pre-approved credit card offers and the risk of credit card fraud that comes with them. That means a much higher level of protection when it comes to your personal information. It only takes about 2 minutes to complete!
One great side-effect of using Optoutprescreen is that you end up with less junk mail to sort through. I figure that my junk mail decreased approximately 50% after I requested that my name be removed from credit card pre-approval lists. That's a LOT of mail! Think about how many trees we could save if we all had our names removed.
Lastly, always remember to open a new brower and type https://www.optoutprescreen.com (or any other financial related website) directly and verify the "s" in https:// the "s" for secure ensures the encryption of your data when you submit the form.
