    Maybe this particular repost is deliberate. Junk mail often involves the same thing repeatedly.

    I`ve had about a hundred pieces of junk mail from Virgin trying to get me to sign up with them. I wouldn`t do that if it was free - if a company is that desperate and that annoying, why would I want anything to do with them?

    I`d like to recommend an iPhone app that has reduced my volume of junk mail by about two-thirds: PaperKarma.

    You simply sign up for the service and then, every time a piece of junk mail appears in your mailbox, you take a picture of it. PaperKarma then contacts the mailer and works to get your address taken off their mailing list.

    It works and I absolutely love it. (Reason #182 why my iPhone rocks.)

    I don`t think there`s anything on that business reply slip that identifies who it came from, only things like what marketing campaign it was....so it wouldn`t stop them sending you stuff because they wouldn`t know who the reply envelope was from if that`s all you put on it.

    I called the post office out of curiosity.

    This WILL NOT WORK.

    The code on the envelope only works for a letter under 3 ounces. So feel free lugging a box of rocks to the post office and getting to lug it back home.

    VV That`s why I suggested stuffing the envelope with OTHER junkmail and sending that ;-)

    How to stop receiving junk mail in one easy step:

    1. Call the company that sent it to you and ask to be removed from their mailing list.

    Additionally, the Direct Marketing Association`s (DMA) Mail Preference Service (MPS) lets you opt out of receiving unsolicited commercial mail from many national companies for five years.

    It works. I get almost no junk mail now. The only one that didn`t honor my first request was Comcast.

    I once heard of a guy who opted IN to every junk mail list he could. Then he rolled it all into logs and burned it to heat his house all winter.

    I rip up all the paperwork and mail it back in their envelope.

    If it doesn`t fit in the envelope they won`t take it.

    Also, there is a maximum weight limit of a couple of ounces on that kind of return postage envelope.

    Just swap junk mail to the wrong envelope and mail it back. At the very least, this helps fund the continued operation of the U.S postal service.
