The Truth about Victoria’s Secret Opt-outsJuly 16, 2007
Victoria’s Secret Opt-Outs – Explained!
We have been reading another junk mail service’s blog post entitled May Member Update from May 22nd about Victoria’s Secret opt-outs.
Apparently, this service claims their members must call Victoria’s Secret personally to be removed from its postal mailing list.
Strange … since PaperKarma has been sending opt-out requests to Victoria’s Secret for years on behalf of our subscribers. Successfully, of course.
In return we always receive a helpful and courteous reply. This includes exact information on what to expect and how long the process of a Victoria’s Secret opt-out for postal mail will take.
I am confused as to why another service to stop postal junk mail is giving out incorrect information to its subscribers.
How to stop catalogs from Victoria’s Secret
Victoria’s Secret has mostly stopped sending its once ubiquitous catalogs. This was a respoonse to public backlash to the lack of diversity in the models featured in its annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show an unhealthy focus on female body ideals.
If you still receive a catalog, simply contact Victoria’s Secret Customer Service Center via Live Chat and send them your opt-out information, including:
- your customer number
- source code
- key code
