Opt-Out Spam Guide

This is a directory of opt-outs I use on a frequent basis.
I hope it's useful for others as well!

Applies to Usonia (USA) only.
Pop me an email if one of these links stops working.
I'll go digging for working ones in my free time, wink wink.

Credit & Debit Card Marketing Use these every-single-time you get a new debit or credit card, some expire… so… make sure to set reminders

PITA, you'll prolly have to call them. Also, there's different opt-outs depending on the service. Use the navigation bar up top & have fun…

Must have an account, there is a way to call them but the real number is super buried...
