But I didn't mean to!

Orchard Bank might want to rethink their marketing campaign. It's an invitation to apply for a preapproved credit card, but it reads like a Puritan minister thundering accusations from the pulpit. Oh, you can try to hide, but we all know where the blame lies. YOU made this happen! Do you feel guilty? YOU SHOULD.

Wow, I'm surprised you are receiving solicitations for credit cards. Since the new credit card laws have gone into affect, we haven't received a single one for a personal credit card.

Business cards are a different matter. We get those all the time, with increasingly crappy terms. It turns out that those cards weren't affected by the laws that cover cards issued to consumers, so they are still issuing those cards with reckless abandon.

Thank goodness for our crosscut shredder.

I don't get nearly as many as I used to - a couple of years ago there were multiple solicitations every time I opened the mailbox, and now it's maybe one a month. Hilariously, they sometimes come in the same delivery as letters inviting me to apply for debt relief programs. Someone's got their mailing databases crossed.

Yeah, my wife's old property recently went into foreclosure. And we just received this same ad from Orchard Bank. I wondered if the credit card is aimed at people who recently lost 200 points on their FICO . . . we have no credit card debt, so no thank you. And now we have one less mortgage. Things are getting better all the time.
