Have you ever received a catalog in the mail and browsed through it to find an item that you suddenly can’t live without? You didn’t know about this item five minutes ago, but now you’re on the internet entering your credit card information. The most effective way to avoid these impulse purchases is to stop the catalogs. Catalog Choice is a great service that helps you do that.
Catalog Choice’s free service allows you to opt-out of receiving catalogs from over 3,000 companies. When a company doesn’t accept Catalog Choice requests, Catalog Choice will link you directly to the company’s website to opt-out. By using the service, I have drastically decreased the number of catalogs that I receive; this not only saves me money by keeping those temptations away but also saves me the time of going through all that mail in my mailbox.
