Question: How do I get off a credit card offer list?

Answer: According to the Federal Trade Commission, consumers can opt-out of receiving prescreened, unsolicited offers.

Consumers have the option to opt-out for five years or permanently.

The Federal Trade Commission instructs consumers wishing to opt-out for five years to call 1-888-567-8688 or visit www.optoutprescreen.com.

Consumers who wish to opt-out permanently can initiate their request online at www.optoutprescreen.com. The request will be completed upon the consumer returning a signed Permanent Opt-Out Election form.
