Victoria’s Secret is yet another popular retailer that may send promotions and special offers to people on their mailing list that might be classified as junk mail.
So, if you’re not in the market for new clothing, lingerie, or intimate products, you’re probably wondering how to stop receiving Victoria’s Secret marketing.
There are few steps you can take to remove yourself from the company mailing list. What’s more, we’ll also show how to put an end to junk mail once and for all.
The type of junk mail Victoria’s Secret sends
Obviously, if you are or have been a Victoria’s Secret customer, you’re going to receive product purchases and maybe billing statements through the mail.
The retailer’s well-known catalog was discontinued in 2016 as business went digital, but it’s likely you get email marketing, and discount promos might still end up in your mailbox.
How to unsubscribe from the Victoria’s Secret mailing list
To unsubscribe from Victoria’s Secret marketing, you need to contact their customer service team directly. They can be reached via phone at 1-800-568-4288 or online via chat.
There’s also a Spanish-language customer service option if you prefer: 1-800-474-7834.
If you already have a Victoria’s Secret customer account, you can update your mail preferences by accessing your account online.
While Victoria’s Secret doesn’t state how long it takes for them to update their mailing list, in our experience this process can take between 4 and 6 weeks.
What to do if you keep getting mail from Victoria’s Secret
If you’ve opted out, but continue to receive unwanted marketing from Victoria’s Secret after 6 weeks, you still have a few options.
- Victoria’s Secret products are stocked in many major department stores. Always verify a junk mail sender to determine if additional opt-out procedures are required.
- You can also send the junk mail back. If there’s a return address on the parcel, simply write “Refused: Return to Sender” and put it back in the mail.
- Consider making a formal complaint to Victoria’s Secret by contacting their customer service team at 1-800-568-4288.

But it’s even more important a precaution to tackle the root cause of the problem.
