International clothing retailer L.L. Bean tries to ensure that their customers stay on trend by sending out seasonal catalogs.
However, there’s unfortunately a chance you’re receiving catalogs and unwanted junk mail from L.L. Bean, even if you’ve never been a customer.
How to cancel the L.L. Bean catalog
Although many clothing brands have gone paperless, L.L. Bean still produces several catalogs that are delivered throughout the year.
If you’re an L.L. Bean customer and want to amend email marketing preferences, you can do that by accessing your account online and changing your settings.
Otherwise, to stop receiving the L.L. Bean catalog, you need to contact the retailer directly.
- The quickest way to do this is by phone at 1-800-441-5713.
- You can also email using this online form.
- You can even send a written opt-out request by mail, though it will take longer to process. The address is: L.L. Bean Inc., Dept. CFM, Freeport, ME 04033.
L.L. Bean does not state how long it takes for an opt-out request to be completed, but you can usually expect it to take no more than 6 weeks.
What to do if catalogs from L.L. Bean keep coming
There’s nothing more frustrating than junk mail continuing to find its way into your mailbox even after you’ve done everything you can to stop it. Here are some actions to take:
- Send the mail back. If there’s a return address on the catalog, write “Refused: Return to Sender” on it and put it back in the mail.
- You should also make a formal complaint to L.L. Bean by contacting their customer service department.
- Unfortunately, L.L. Bean “does not honor” third-party opt-out requests from databases such as CatalogChoice or DMAchoice.

How to stay off the L.L. Bean mailing list
Most importantly, don’t consent to any future marketing when you shop from, or have any communication with, L.L. Bean in the future.
Unfortunately, there’s always a chance some junk mail will slip through the cracks. That’s because companies regularly use data brokers to update their mailing lists.
Data brokers sift through publicly available information online to gather consumer data. This data is sold to the highest bidders, resulting in unwanted junk mail or spam calls.
To get your information off data-broker sites, you have to opt out of each one, individually. While you can do this yourself, it’s incredibly time consuming.
Instead, let DeleteMe do that hard work for you by completing the opt outs on your behalf. For as little as $10.75 a month, we remove your information from data-broker sites and continue to monitor them during your subscription.
