Junk Mail

Thank you for your interest in our junk mail position. This is a unique position that you will not find anywhere.

JB Marketing Services wants your junk mail! Here's the basics. Everyone receives junk mail. All you do is save up your junk mail, and send it to us once a month. If there is personal information that you wish not to be on it such as your name or address, you can white it out. Please do not blacken it with a marker as you may accidently blacken out the backside and some of the wording. We are also wanting the envelope it came in, if a letter.

What we're looking for
Mortgage letters/offers (Except citifinancial offers)
Products such as insurance (Except auto), security systems, ect
Other junk mail/mailers such as if you are going into foreclosure i.e. solicitations

What we're NOT looking for
Credit card offers
Any work at home opportunity booklets
Anything from citifinancial
Car dealership flyers
Cell phone offers

Basically, we're looking for junk mail that is offering services. Along with the junk mail, may be a quick survey that you'll need to fill out concerning the junk mail that you received.

Must send a minimum of 25 seperate mailers
Maximum once a month per household
Ship via US Media Mail ONLY
Fill out quick survey which will be sent to you upon approval of application
Invoice for junk mail and postage must be included
Not everyone will be approved instantly
This is a work at home position
You will receive $5/month per shipment (Average of 20 cents per mailer), plus reimbursement for postage
Envelope is a business expense and can be written off on your taxes. You can buy a package of 10 large envelopes to ship in for $2 at Wal-mart.

Why participate in this? Why not? Not only does this cut down on your trash a little, you will be recycling your junk mail, while making a little money on the side. There's nothing to lose except for junk mail, so apply today!

Questions on application are somewhat personal. All information is kept confidential and will never be shared with anyone. Information is needed to help select a variety of families participating to ensure a wide selection of junk mail being sent in. This way, we're not going to get the same thing from everyone.

Their instruction to send the junk mail by Media Mail, is, IMO, illegal. Media Mail can only be used for books that do not contain advertising; it can't be used for magazines, as they contain advertising. Junk mail is, by its very nature, advertising.

not so good, thanks for your input. to be honest i do not think it would be something I would be interested in (seems like too much work for the money, but to be honest though i am pretty much desperate). but i did not think of that aspect.. i sold books back to websites using media mail and i know it's slow but did not know magazines could not be sent that way.

I asked my mail person and they said media mail was intended for books, tapes, videos and BUNDLES of documents, magazines etc.

Is this for real? It seems like a scam to me. Who would want other people's junk mail? Besides, a lot of that stuff has a scary amount of personal info like your address and phone numbers. I wouldn't want to spread that info around to even more companies, but that's just me.

i would be interested in that considering i have a TON of junk mail every week but it does seem like a lot of work for 5.00 a month. its easier to just burn it in our outdoor furnace. but if they uped the price to maybe 10 i would consider it for sure!
