Unsolicited mail, all those offers for credit cards and insurance can be a nuisance if you’re not in the market for these services.  If you would like to opt-out for 5 years or even permanently, go to www.optoutprescreen.com. The Opt-Out website is operated by the major consumer credit reporting agencies. You’ll need to enter your birthday and Social Security number, along with address and phone numbers. If you choose to permanently opt-out, you’ll have to print and sign the election form, then mail it in.  Note that you might miss an offer or something that you would actually like to have seen.
