Getting maximum use out of decline letters

[ Edited ]

Remember to save those decline letters and use them to pull free reports. With those, you can pull your reports over a certain time period. So, let's say you got two declines recently from a CCC that pulled EX, for example, you could pull your free EX report twice without having to wait a full year as you normally would when you pull from Hope that makes sense.

 We interrupt this program to bring you the following message...
