Does "Return Service Requested" mean what I hope it does?

American Express sent me a book I didn't request and don't want. My card won't be charged as long as I return it within 90 days. Do I have to pay to send it back to them, or can I just write "Return to Sender" on the package?
"Return Service Requested" appears on the mailing label. I've just done some quick research
on this term and it seems to mean that if a package is undeliverable as addressed, it will be returned to the sender at no charge. But maybe it also means that a delivered, opened, and unwanted piece of mail can be returned, too. Have you had any experience sending junk mail back to AmEx?
The cost to mail would be less than my card would be charged if the post office tosses it (or if I keep it), but I'd prefer not to pay for this experience at all.
