How can I stop getting credit card offers in the mail?

Hi. I havent lived in the United States for the past 8 years, yet I continue to get credit card offers at my parents home address. I have tried writing letters, but new ones just keep coming. What can I do? This is highly annoying to me. I dont even live there, yet they are sending unsolicited mail. Please help, any agencies or anything I can contact? Thanks so much!!

    You can opt out of annoying credit card and insurance offers sent in the mail (and save some trees) by visiting

    If you get an offer in the mail, open it and look it over for a part that says opt out or subscribe or something like that. It’s usually in small print at the bottom and/or back of the letter. Then follow what the opt out information says to do. The last time I opted out of a credit card offer, I had to go to a website that was listed on their letter and then type in my info so that they wouldn’t send me anymore letters (I haven’t received anything since). Or you can call them, but that doesn’t usually work very well.

    Calling 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) to have your name removed from direct marketing lists. You can do this online at, which is the official consumer credit reporting industry opt-out website.
