Most people I know like to save money. And there are plenty of direct mail companies out there to help us in our pursuits of saving the all mighty dollar, but the amount of unsolicited junk mail sent out to help us in our pursuits is enough to drive a person nuts!
What I’m referring to is the multiple envelopes or insert-type mailings you receive on a regular basis. These include coupons for home repairs, dental work, and any sort of product or service you can imagine.
There are many direct mailers that send you these coupon mailers, but with a few simple steps you can be off their lists. The companies listed here are the most prevalent.
These are the coupons that come in the blue envelope. You will need the envelope to enter your address information exactly as it appears on the label. To be removed from ValPak mailings, click on this ValPak link. Enter the requested information and press submit.
If you still want to enjoy the savings offered by ValPak you can go to their website at www.ValPak.com and find coupons for your area online. That way you only print the coupons you need.
RedPlum (formerly Advo or ShopWise)
RedPlum sends coupon inserts similar to what you find in the Sunday paper. They include the address card that shows pictures of missing children.
There are two options for removing your address from the RedPlum mailing list:
- Fill out the form at the RedPlum website, or
- Call the Valassis Consumer Assistance Line at 800-437-0479 (between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm Eastern)
Removal from the list may take 5-6 weeks. You may still look for local deals through RedPlum at their website, www.RedPlum.com.
special note: The post office is prohibited from delivering unaddressed mail. The RedPlum address card is usually inside the coupons so your mail carrier may still give you a set of coupons without the address card once your name is off the mailing list. If this happens, just let your mail carrier know by leaving a note in your mailbox or talking to them as they pass by.
Money Mailer is another envelope full of coupons. It comes in a 6″ x 9″ red/white/blue envelope.
You can remove your address from Money Mailer the following ways. Provide your mailing address as shown on the envelope with instructions to be removed from their mailing list and either:
- call 714-889-4609
- send by U.S. mail to: Money Mailer, 12131 Western Ave., Garden Grove, CA 92841
- send an email to ListManagerContact@moneymailer.com
Other Local Mailers
There may be additional coupon mailers you receive that aren’t listed here. Look through the mailer to find a website or phone number to get the instructions for being removed from their coupon mailing list. Some of them get a little sneaky so check the fine print along the fold too.
If you continue to have difficulty locating contact information, leave a comment below and tell us about what you’re receiving. Others may be having the same difficulty and we will find a solution together.
