How to Stop Receiving Credit Card Offers

tips suggest edit

Tired of annoying “pre-approved” credit card offers? I sure am. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) of 1970 as amended in 1996, the four major credit bureaus have the right to sell your information to companies that want to offer you a credit card. Fortunately, the amendment also stipulated that credit bureaus must provide a way for consumers to have their names excluded from pre-approval lists. If you’re a United States citizen sick of getting pre-screened credit card offers, this article will show you how to avoid receiving them.

Jiraffe

personal suggest edit

We went on a triple date last night with Walt, Celine, Dan, and Judy to eat at Jiraffe. They are having some sort of Monday prefixe special. Unfortunately, a lot of French food has egg product in it to give it an added richness, which makes it difficult for my wife. I, on the other hand, had no problem with any of the food. Especially the Fois Gras. Very rich and tasty!
