Two Can Play This Game!

credit 002

This morning while I was shredding another huge amount of junk mail and credit card offers, I decided to have a little fun. I mailed out one empty envelope, a couple with the terms of the credit card, and the rest, I left our name on, and wrote in big black magic marker, NO THANK YOU, PLEASE REMOVE ME FROM YOUR LIST, across the space where you fill in all personal information.

These offers always include postage free envelopes (which THEY have to pay for), so I decided to return something in the envelope with each credit card offer I receive. This morning, we dropped 11 credit card offers in the mail. Six went to Chase, three went to Citibank, and two went to Discover.

This afternoon when we got back from our motorcycle ride, we had TWO more offers from Chase. Instead of mailing back junk mail, I decided that they needed something to do with their time, so I printed out a word search puzzle for each envelope, and put that in the envelope. One puzzle was about mothers (well, since tomorrow is Mother’s day, you know…) and the other one was about items you find in a Garage (Cant forget the guys!) Grand total today….13.

I hope they enjoy the puzzles. I have a feeling I’ll be sending them many more! If nothing else, it should break up the monotony of their day!

How is your weekend going?

Add Happy Mother's Day

Be blessed!
