Tired of credit card offers?

According to the June 2005 issue of Money Magazine ("The key to Fighting ID Theft: Think Low-Tech", pp. 48A-48B), you can get off the mailing lists for credit card offers by calling 888-5-OPTOUT. (Of course, if you're one of those people who still doesn't have a no-fee, cash-rebate credit card then this might be a bad idea.)

I would include a link, but Money isn't online. Furthermore, in the process of Googling another article I have managed to get an unwanted JAVA program running on my computer. I don't know much about JAVA or spyware, but I hope the mystery program isn't waiting for me to access the Optout webpage!

Incidentally, I'm getting 1% cash-back with no fee and no hassles. I'd be interested to know if anyone has a better card.
