Spamming my driveway

Ok, really it’s like dumping trash in my driveway — a furniture store that I bought some items for signed me up for daily newspaper delivery for 6 months as a “gift.”  I did not ask for this “gift” and really do not recall opting in to this “gift” when I purchased the stuff from the furniture store.  Now the paper is coming every day and filling up my trashcan because neither my wife nor I really read the printed version of the newspaper except on Sundays.

We called the newspaper company and informed that that we did not ask for or want to receive the paper every day, but would be happy to simply receive it on Sundays.  Can you guess their response?  They responded that we would have to pay extra.
