I received this as an e-mail today. I like the idea and I think I might start doing it. :D


If this will keep those idiots from sending junkmail, hey why not try it !!

A way to recycle the junk mail - Best option
for the homeowner.

When you get those pre-approved letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and junk like that, most of them come with postage paid return envelopes, right? Well, why not get rid of some of your
other junk mail and put it in these cool little envelopes!

Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to
American Express. Or a pizza coupon to Citibank.

If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their application back! Just make sure you send it back empty if you want to just keep 'em guessing!

Let's turn this into a chain letter! Eventually, the banks and credit card companies will begin getting all their junk mail back in the mail.

Let's let them know what it's like to get junk mail, and best of all.... THEY'RE paying for it! Twice!

Let's help keep our postal service busy since
they say e-mail is cutting into their business, and that's why they need to increase postage again!

Send this to a friend or two or three...or fifty!!! :D

Tell me about it...i live in an apartment, and i get companies asking me if i want my fireplace and chimney cleaned. They call me once a year. I get lots of credit card applications, etc etc etc. I think i'm gonna send all this crap back inside out.

I wonder if its possible to just make a new address lable for the envelope and use it for something you accually need to mail. Now that would be a blast!

I live in an apartment too and I get banks sending me things that say I'm pre approved for a loan and then at the bottom in fine print it says limited to home owners.:rolleyes: My all time favorite ones are the guys that keep calling me telling me it's that time of year again when I need to get my lawn ready for fall and winter because remember last year??? Hmm I still didn't have a lawn last year.
