opt out/in

New here Ive been lurking for a couple of weeks.  Learned a heck of alot so far, didnt even know anything about utilizationSmiley Surprised

 

How do you know if you have opted out from credit offers?  I cant remember if I opted out or not years ago.  If I did opt out in the past, will I still be able to opt back in?

Sorry cant do paragraphs. Posting from an iPad, for some reason the return key doesn't work on Myfico forums.

Welcome.

 

You can always go through the process of Opt Out/Opt In again if you can't remember. Unless you send in a hard copy for a permanent opt out though the opt out feature online only lasts for 5 years.

 

 

 

From a BK years ago to:

And if you pull your full reports directly from the CRAs (or via annualcreditreport), you'll see a mention at the very bottom of the report with a simple one-sentence saying that you are opted out, if that's the case.

+1.   I opted out and my reports says File Blocked for Promotions.  I can't remember if all three reports says that.

Re: opt out/in

I checked mine today. Only one said that. I'm at work and can't remember which one. Anyway, it only takes a second to opt out or in so do it again. It won't hurt.
