- ADVO is a leading circular distribution company , you can remove your name from their mailing list by calling 1-888-241-6760
- Valpack Savings-you can remove your name from their list by going to http://www.coxtarget.com look under their Contact Us tab and they have a mailing list removal list form.
- Remove yourself from catalog and other direct-mailing lists by writing to Mail Preference Service, c/o The DMA, P.O. Box 9008, Farmingdale, NY 11735-9008; include in your request your name as it appears on catalogs.
