Comcast Junk Mail
I have looked into trying to get them to stop sending junk mail, but there does not seem to be an easy way. A search on the internet has shown other customers who are also fed up with junk mail from Comcast.
The excuse there was that they think someone new might move in and they want the new resident to get their offer. Ok fine, no problem, but do you have to send it every week? People don't move that fast. Comcast, I can tell you I am not moving for at least a year, and probably many years after that, so you can stop wasting your money on postage sending me this junk.
I decided to call the number on the last mail they sent me, after going through several menus and not have the option to choose anything related to getting off the mailing list, I decided to email them. This again was not easy. After browsing around the site for a few minutes I managed to find an email contact for general questions. I requested to be taken off the mailing list.
Today I received a reply from Comcast. It was a rather long email for such a simple question, but they did say they would take me off the list but that I might still get mail from them for the next 1 - 2 months. We'll see. If it keeps coming, you will hear about it here.
UPDATE 10-7-11 Still getting junk mail from Comcast.
UPDATE 4-7-15 I still seem to be getting mail from Comcast as well as AT&T every week trying to get me to sign up for new services. It should not be so hard to unsubscribe from all of these things.
