The great credit card opt-out

I’m trying to save you some toxic junk mail.

Discontinuous Permafrost is surely the most northerly Unitarian Universalist blog. Its Fairbanks-based anonymous author has his own way of sticking it to the Credit Card Offer Industrial Complex (“The Credit Card Resistance Movement (CRAM)“) — shared incidentally by people I respect — and I have mine.

Opt out. Start here. It’s for real, was widely promoted a couple of years ago and I did it myself. Now, the only offers I get are from banks whose cards I already have, mainly for those dreadful little faux-checks, which I immediately shred.

I suspect the CCOIC would rather deal with malcontents in a civilized manner if for no other reason that our efforts cost them money and make them none.
