Stop Progressive Insurance Junk Mail

July 21, 2022

Progressive is one of the most widely used insurance providers in the U.S. However, their ranking hasn’t stopped them from sending you unnecessary marketing mail.  

This marketing material comes in the form of direct mail, emails, or spam calls. As a result, you probably receive hundreds of pieces of junk mail from Progressive each year.  

Fortunately, opting out of Progressive’s mail list is quick and easy. What’s more, there are a few simple steps to take to ensure you don’t end up back on it in the future.  

The type of junk mail Progressive Insurance sends

Progressive junk mail is nothing more than unsolicited promotional material for their insurance coverage—mail that will probably just end up in your trashcan. 

It might include letters, fliers, or brochures, also spam emails. These are basic strategies to help Progressive sell their products and reach new potential customers.

How to unsubscribe from Progressive’s mailing list  

To unsubscribe from the Progressive Insurance mailing list, you need to speak to their customer service team directly. 

You can easily contact them by phone at ​​1-888-671-4405. However, there are other methods of contact listed on the Progressive website contact page, as well. 

If you want to take things a step further and unsubscribe from the Progressive email marketing list also, you can enter your email address here.  

How long it takes to stop receiving mail from Progressive 

Progressive doesn’t state how long its opt-out process can take. However, in our experience, you can usually plan on it taking up to 6 weeks for a request to be processed.

What to do if Progressive keeps sending marketing material 

We recommend you wait at least 6 weeks, but if you’ve opted out of the mail list and still receive junk mail from Progressive after that, follow these steps:  

  • Send the mail back. Progressive junk mail tends to have return addresses, so write “Refused: Return to Sender” on the envelope and put it back in the mail. 
  • File a formal complaint with Progressive by either calling the customer service line, or filing a complaint by mail with a Progressive branch near you.

How to stay off Progressive Insurance’s mailing list 

First of all, make sure you don’t consent to receive marketing material when or if you interact with Progressive in the future—that includes signing up for anything online. 

You also need to keep in mind that unsubscribing from the Progressive mail list does not fully guarantee you won’t receive spam mail from them in the future.  

The reason being, organizations like Progressive acquire your data through information intermediaries called data brokers. What that means is, even if you never agreed to receive marketing mail directly from a company, your data can still end up on its mailing list.  

So, to ensure you stop receiving junk mail for good, from both Progressive as well as other companies, you need to remove your personal information from data-broker sites. This process has to be done with each of the 500+ data brokers in operation, individually.
