Stop junk mail

01 Aug

We signed up for Green Dimes three months ago to help stop junk mail. The company offers three service options – Basic, Premium and Bundle. The Basic is free, Premium is $20, which includes 5 trees planted on your behalf, and the Bundle is $36.

We opted for the Bundle, which included a compact, reusable shopping bag, an organic cotton t-shirt, 2 CFL bulbs, and a Little Critter children’s Earth Day book. I love the compact shopping bag and always carry it in my purse. The t-shirt is super-soft and comfortable and Jenna loves the Little Critter book.  Since signing up, the amount of junk mail we receive is down to almost none. Woo-hoo!  I’ve also signed up (through them) to stop receiving most catalogs by mail in an effort to reduce waste since I do most of my shopping online.  I feel a little more green already.  They offer a money back guarantee, so if you’re not satisfied with the service, just let them know.

    A word of caution…I use Catalog Choice to try to cut down on the junk. What I’ve discovered is that many companies change my customer ID number so they can continue sending catalogs. It’s absurd.

    Insta-Mom –

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll watch for that and see what happens. Seems like the company would want to save a little money too, so if the customer says they don’t want a catalog, they could save a few bucks. The wastefulness is crazy. Grrrr.

    My wife and I used Remove Junk Mail to stop all of ours. And it seemed to work very well for us and the customer service was even better. Well good luck stopping yours I hated getting all mine.

    I happen to be one of the owners of MyJunkTree and as a new company I search the web to see if we are getting any visibility out there and it seems the word is getting out. Thanks for the support.

    We launched the company because we were tired of all the junk mail we were receiving and we personally did not want to bounce all over the web to contact all the different companies to stop it all. First and foremost we wanted to let people choose what they wanted to let come to their home knowing that some people really do like some of the coupons and catalogs. So our clients choose what they want stopped.

    We also had to provide a service that is different than the other services out there, so here is what we offer:

    1. We have a database of over 1300 catalogs that you can choose to stop.
    2. We have over a 2000 charities/Non-Profits that you can stop solicitations from.
    3. Stop the delivery of the national phone directories.
    4. Stop the delivery of the weekly coupons.
    5. Stop the general credit card offers as well as the ones from your own major bank.
    6. Stop the miscellaneous junk mail from the data brokers.
    7. You can register on the National Do Not Call Registry from the website.
    8. You can order your no strings attached free annual credit report right from the website.
    9. We plant trees with every new membership.

    And, yes we are a paid service and yes you can do everything that we do for free, if you want to do all the research and spend the time contacting the companies yourself it can easily be done. We have just done all of the legwork for our clients and feel there is value in the service we provide.
