How to Stop Discover Card From Sending Me Applications
For many consumers, unsolicited credit card applications are an unwanted burden. Discover Card offers are among the most annoying — since most merchants don’t accept Discover cards as payment, few consumers have any interest in applying for them. Receiving credit card offers forces the recipient to spend time destroying the envelope and its contents, since they often contain sensitive information. To avoid wasting time and paper, you can opt out of future mailings.
Stop Discover Card Mailings
1)Call the Discover discover card company at 1-800-225-5202. Go through the automated menu until you are connected with a live representative.
2)Tell the company representative that you no longer wish to receive Discover Card mailings.
3)Provide your name, address and all other required personal information upon request. To prevent Discover from selling your information to an affiliate, specify that you don’t want the company to share your information with any other companies or use it for promotional mailings.
