    Ive been doing that to Capital One. They would literally send me at least one a day, sometimes i would get 2 or even 3 card offers in one day. Then i found this, and started sending my garbage back to them. Never quite got to an old tire, though. For some odd reason i no longer get credit card offers from Capital One.

    That's funny! But, is it really legal? Mail abuse?

    I mail back all of my credit card junk mail, usually about a half dozen a day. I get some with stickers in them to choose what card I want, so I stick the stickers everywhere and fill the envelope with pizza cupons and harbor freight advertisements. I sent a piece of rotten bologna wrapped in saran wrap and a piece of cheese once. STINK!!!

    Capitol One? They are my favorite! Here is today's mailings, complete with coupons for almost anything imaginable and randomly attached stickers, and the foil lids from my SnackPack chocolate pudding... with pudding still smeared on the foil.

    i usually use them to start fires... or throw them away at work. I don't mind getting CC offers... because I transfer balances and cancel cards all the time. I have had a revolving balance for the last 3 years, and haven't had a rate over 0.0% that entire time... gotta love it. :grin:

    I don't see how a company can ban you from mailing postage-paid packages. Couldn't we just as easily ban them from mailing us anything at all? I guess they could ban you from mailing THEM postage-paid packages, but it doesn't seem right that they could ban you completely. :dunno:

    That is a great idea though. I may have to try that. I just moved so I'm sure I can find some old junk they would love to have. Really, it's all in the Christmas spirit. Better to give than to receive!:D

    I used to work for the post office and that is why your bills don't come in postage paid envelopes anymore. People used to attach their utilities bills to cinder blocks and mail them in. The USPS has to deliver them and can't tamper with it...

    Good for junk mail though... :haha:
