If you live in the United States and no longer want to receive unsolicited physical mailers for credit card offers and insurance services, then you need to head over to now. allows you to opt-out of all those annoying credit card offers via mail for at least five years or forever. Receiving offers like this in the mail can put you at risk for identity theft as well. Opting off this list may also raise your credit score.

A couple of weeks ago marked the start of quarter three for credit card companies that have 5% cashback categories. Two of my favorite cashback programs are the Chase Freedom and Discover IT  credit cards. With Chase Freedom, you can now earn 5% cashback at grocery stores (excluding Target and Walmart) and select streaming services on up to $1,500 in combined purchases from July 1 - September 30, 2021. Groceries are one of the biggest expenses in my budget, so I will easily max-out the grocery store category during this quarter. The Discover card’s 5% cashback bonus categories are restaurants and PayPal from the beginning of July until the end of September, on up to $1,500 of spend. Many online merchants accept PayPal as a payment option. Do know that both of these credit cards need you to log into your account and activate these offers.
