    Anyone else get tired of all the Cabela's catalogs you get in the mail?

    Some I have received.

    Fall master catalog,Fall clothing catalog,Christmas 2008 catalog,another Christmas 2008 catalog,Last minute Christmas catalog,Mid-winter sale catalog,Inventory clearance sale catalog.I called them nine months ago and asked to be taken off the mailing list.I was told it would be around three to four months before I would be taken off.Think of the money they could save.

    What is wrong with ordering on line?I guess they do this where you will look at the catalog and be caught at a weak moment.

    They won't burn worth a dam.Too heavy in the garbage.Too slick for the (out house).So I came up with the bright idea,run one through my paper shreader one
    or two pages at a time for nesting in the wood duck box.Yea right,anyone know how long it takes to shread a Cabela's master catalog?

    If you don't like them, why don't you ask to be taken off their list.

    Did you read the first post to this thread Bo said:

    "I called them nine months ago and asked to be taken off the mailing list.I was told it would be around three to four months before I would be taken off."

    That should tell you why. It doesn't seem to do any good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    100 MILLION Trees are chopped down each year for Junk Mail.
    That is 333,000 acres of trees, almost half the size
    of Rhode Island each year! It's a love hate relationship with these companies, which is why I stopped most of the catalogs when I heard the above statistics.
    Everyday my mailbox was jammed with catalogs...most I liked...so I canceled them and filed them on my computer as a favorite place. Now I shop when I need something...online. Kim

    Roll them up tightly and secure with wire. Then burn them in your wood stove. Free fuel to keep you warm in the winter. HMB

    I finally had to call their "customer service" manager to get remove from all mailings. E-mails didn't work for me. Too a while, but I don't get ANYTHING from them anymore! Sure is nice!

    Why not just write on it return to sender and drop it back in the nearest mailbox or better yet ... have you thought about just calling them and asking them to stop sending you all of them? Ya know you could also just tell them all you want is certain ones and they will put you on the list for them and those only.

    But then that is just to simple to do ...

    Mr Newbius I have an idea read the post by Bocephas you know the very first post where he explains.

    "I called them nine months ago and asked to be taken off the mailing list."

    You only pretend you can read. Sometimes I think its just to much trouble for you to do so. Or you might have really low reading conprehention.
