3. Make sure to click ‘yes’ on the question that says “I wish to stop receiving all communications from AARP”
Call AARP at 888-OUR-AARP (888-687-2277)
You can also send an email with the subject “Unsubscribe” to email@example.com.
If you prefer to contact AARP by post, you can send your opt-out request to AARP Membership Center, 3200 E. Carson St., Lakewood, CA 90712. However, your opt-out process may take longer via this method.
How long does it take to stop receiving mail from AARP?
AARP doesn’t provide a timeframe of how long the opt-out process takes. But, in our experience, expect to wait 4 to 6 weeks for the request to take effect.
What to do if I keep receiving marketing material from AARP after opting out?
As mentioned, your request won’t take immediate effect. Wait up to 6 weeks for this to take effect. If, after 6 weeks, you’re still receiving junk mail from AARP, follow these steps:
Do not open any letters from AARP. Write “Refused. Return to sender,” on the front of the envelope. Then post it back in the mail. It’s important to stress that envelopes should not be opened for this to work.
Making a formal complaint to AARP. Follow the guidance provided on its website on how to make a complaint to customer services. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your grievances and await a reply.
How do I stay off AARP’s mailing list for good?
To stay off AARP’s mailing list, you need to ensure you don’t consent to receiving marketing whenever you interact with the organization. For example, when signing up for something online.
Keep in mind that unsubscribing from the AARP mailing list may not guarantee you won’t receive mail spam in the future. This is due to the fact many organizations acquire marketing data through third party intermediaries called data brokers.
To stop receiving unwanted mail from AARP and other companies for good, you’ll need to delete your personal information from data brokers. But this can be very time consuming as there are over 500 data brokers in the US.
Instead, you can get DeleteMe to do it for you. We specialize in removing personal data from data brokers. And once your information is removed, you’ll start to see a reduction in spam calls and junk mail. Our plans start from just $10.75 per month. Click here for more details.
