Opting-out

November 13, 2006 at 1:51 pm 1 comment

Ever since I ‘kind of’ retired I get one of those prescreened/prequalified credit card offers just about every day. I figured there had to be some sort of Do Not Call list type of thing for unsolicited credit cards, and there is.

Equifax, Experian, Innovis, and TransUnion – the four major credit reporting agencies – have created OptOutPrescreen.com which lets you opt-out of getting these offers for five years, right from the web site. If you want to opt-out forever, you can do it by mail.

The site and its service are free, as required under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
