I don't have an item to add to the bill of rights. I just wanted yall to know how I do try and "get back" at credit card companies.When I get a solicitation from one of them, I tear up the application and put all of the material, the envelope, and other junk mail in the Business Reply Envelope (BRE). Then, I send it back to them. Companies have to pay a flat fee for using a BRE, but if the return is over the registered return weight (usually 1 ounce), then the company has to pay extra for that postage. Not only does this cost them money for the postage, it also makes the company handle the return and account for the increase.In the big fish bowl of life, I know this action is just pennies on the hundreds of dollars, but it sure makes me feel good. Also, it gets rid of some of my junk mail. I abolsolutely love this idea and shall share it with anyone that I hear complain about those mailings. Thanks for the idea, I too will join in on that fun. Cheap humor, it's great.
