I get bombarded with offers, too. Although, pleasantly enough, they have been for better quality cards recently (I get a lot of Amex BCP and Discover it...even after opening a Discover it card). I have no problem with companies marketing cards, but the amount is just insane. I also appreciate, in a way, the prescreened and targeted offers. I'm much more likely to open and consider one of those than if they just litter every mailbox in town with them.
I've gotten to the point where any time I get any offer with one of those business reply mail envelopes, I return it with the blank application...and any other junk mail I can stuff in. I figure I'll let them pay for some extra postage and wages to the mailroom people that will open it, make them waste as much time as they made me waste, and do my part to keep the USPS running. Anyone else do this?
