From the page:
1. Save every Free Credit Card Offer you get, Put it in pile A
2. Save every Free Coupon You get, put that in pile B
3. Now open the credit card mail from pile A and find the Business
Reply Mail Envelope.
4. Take the coupons from pile B and stuff them in the envelope you hold
in your hand.
5. Drop the stuffed to the brim envelopes in your mail and walk away
I have now received two phone calls from the credit card companies
telling me that they received a stuffed envelope with coupons rather
then my application. They informed me that it they are not pleased that
they footed the bill for the crap I sent them. I reply with "It says
Business Reply Mail" I'm suggesting coupons to you to ensure that your
business is more successful. They promptly hang up on me.
Now, I did this for about a month before it got boring, so I got an
added idea! I added exactly 33 cents worth of pennies to the envelope
so they paid EXTRA due to the weight. I got a call informing me about
the money, I said it was a mistake and I demanded my change back. After
yelling at the clerk and then to the supervisor they agreed to my
demands and cut me a check for the money. I hold in my hand at this
very moment a check from GTE Visa for exactly 33 cents.
What a brilliant idea! Why didn't I think of it first? So many trees die for all the crap mail I get. Geez.
just reminds me of the Maddox article
I have so much respect for that
I'm so trying this. Gouging these assholes bit by bit is going to make my day that much sweeter.
I wish I'd get credit card applications so I could try this.
I like this idea a lot. I don't get enough apps and such to do this, but when I do get the unsolicited mail I check for a business reply envelope. If there is one, I write on the form included a request to remove me from their mailing list. I then fold all the other garbage that they sent so it fits inside the envelope, and send that to them, too.
Great idea, stolen from Maddox.
