I Hate That Advertising Crap! Login/Join 
one of us
posted
The first thing I do when I get a magazine is tear out all the advertising cards that are stuck into the magazine to supposedly grab your attention. I just pulled eight from inside the latest Guns & Ammo. I probably pull eighteen out of each issue of AARP. As far as I'm concerned it's spam.

I use those things to include as "counter offers" in the return envelopes from the junk mail I receive (postage pre-paid only of course). Those folks always say they are anxiously awaiting a reply from me, and I hate to disappoint them. Who knows, they might like to get a portable sawmill, or an all terrain mower, or a subscription to the "cigar of the month club". I try to offer them an opportunity just as they are offering me.

Bmtshooter, please don't continue posting, for being your first post, it has set the standard too high. I don't believe you will be able to top that.

I will continue to spread your "counter-offer" gospel.

I cant imagine throwing away those mail-ins from magazines!
The best are the ones from the magazines themselves.
I just fill in my enemy's name and address, check the little box that says, "Bill Me Later", and drop them in the mailbox. Two or three dozen at a time.
You have to know that those subscription services are like pit bulls when it comes to non-payment. Wink

That's cold!
Did you know that you can take the pre-paid envelope and tape it to a brick and the post office will deliver it! And bill them for the postage!
Yes, it works!


Shovel ready.....
but hangin' on

The only thing worse, are those crap faxes that advertise $99 trips to Cancun, that show up in the office fax machine. I put them back into the machine, and dial the 800 number. Love to hear the guy at the other end screaming this is not a fax number. Then I hit redial several times, just to tie up their lines some more.... BOOM
