Stop pre-approved credit card applications

Posted: Updated:

There's a way to get rid of pesky pre-approved credit cards that show up in your mailbox on a regular basis.

Credit card companies often check your credit score, and if it's high enough, a pre-approved card will be sent directly to your mailbox.

If someone steals it from your mailbox or digs it out of your trash, your identity could easily be stolen.

But there's a way to prevent it.

A federal website called OptOutPrescreen.com allows users to stop having the offers sent to their address. You can also make that request by calling 1-888-567-8688.
