While many consumers love a good discount, others don’t find coupon mailings sent to their home useful at all. Unfortunately, there are lots of coupon companies that continue to spam households with marketing mail, whether they like it or not.
RedPlum was once one of America’s largest coupon companies, filling millions of U.S. mailboxes with unnecessary mail. Though it’s changed its name to RetailMeNot Everyday, it hasn’t stopped bombarding recipients on its mailing list with this junk mail.
What type of junk mail RedPlum sends
A parcel is usually classified as junk mail when it’s a letter or brochure promoting products, coupons, or samples. In other words, it’s mail you get you don’t want when a company is trying to sell you something you don’t need. It usually ends up in the trash.
RedPlum, now part of the Save family of coupon distributors, typically sends unnecessary vouchers, coupons, or marketing for special offers.
How to unsubscribe from RedPlum’s mailing list
Because RedPlum is part of the Valassis and Save networks, you’ll need to process your opt-out request through their corporate website.
- Head to the Valassis marketing opt-out page and fill in your details, including name, address, and email. Click “Submit.”
- You can unsubscribe from Valassis email marketing by entering your details here also.
How long it takes to stop receiving mail from RedPlum
Though you can expect your direct mail marketing opt out to be processed within about 6 weeks, you should know that you might continue to receive solicitation from RedPlum, Valassis, Save, or their coupon associates at RetailMeNot, within that time.
What to do if marketing material from RedPlum doesn’t stop
As mentioned, your opt-out request won’t take immediate effect. But, if after 6 weeks you’re still receiving junk mail from RedPlum, take the following steps:
- Write “Refused: Return to Sender” on any parcel and put it back in the mail (please note: this mail should not be opened).
- Call to file a formal complaint with Valassis at 1-844-940-7283.
- File a formal complaint with Valassis online. Use this contact form.
How to stay off RedPlum’s mailing list once and for all
First off, you need to be sure you never consent to receive any marketing mail when or if you interact with RedPlum, Valassis, Save, or any of their partners in the future.
What’s more, you might continue to receive this junk mail, as well as spam texts or robocalls, because marketers are accessing your information through the many hundreds of data brokers that are operating at any given time across the U.S.
To stop receiving unwanted messages from coupon companies, you need to delete your personal information from each individual data-broker site—a process that can be very complex, time consuming, and seemingly never ending.
Alternatively, you could get DeleteMe to do it all for you. We specialize in removing personal data from data-broker platforms, and keeping it off.
