Why do I receive so many offers for new credit cards in the mail?

Credit card issuers, auto finance companies, other lenders, and insurers ask credit bureaus for lists of names and addresses of individuals who meet certain criteria (such as a minimum credit score). They then use this information to contact you. You can opt out of receiving these offers.
