I rarely get them, but you can bet that when you sign up for things online, or donate to some places that your address/phone number/email address is being sold. I worked for a company that did direct mailings back in the day, and yes they work. It is amazing what information people will give to companies through the mail. It seems like mostly older people do this. But yean, your info could easily be sold when doing things online. The charities may not buy them directly, but someone is buying it then selling, then someone else buys and sells, etc. My comany would purchase them according to different criteria but usually either by: income, zip code, or age.

Edit: You can also write on the envelop: Do not mail, remove address and just send it back in the mailbox. Most likely they will remove your address then.

My FI gets them all the time and we’re not sure why/how! I personally like the address label ones haha. Although they always put MR. for mine – I totally still use them though! I hate writing my return address out!
