One of my favorite ways to get coupons is to email the manufacturers of my favorite products.
I routinely look through my house for products that I love and use regularly. Then I go to the product websites and look for the “contact us” link. Some websites have an email form and some just have an email address.
Then I write a short note about how much I love their product, how often I use it, and why I love it/how it helps me and my family. Sometimes I ask about coupons and sometimes I just leave my compliment.
If I mention coupons, I might say something along the lines of “Do you have a newsletter or coupon mailing list that I can be added to?” Most of the time they will send coupons and offers via email, but it doesn’t hurt to include your physical mailing address in the note. That way you don’t miss out if they are still sending paper coupons via snail mail!
Doing this lets the manufacturer know that people like their products so they hopefully won’t discontinue the ones you love, and it also helps you! The companies (I’d say 8 times out of 10) will usually mail you coupons if you reach out in this manner. Sometimes they even send coupons for FREE products! It’s a win-win!
Some companies that have sent me FREE product coupons for emailing them a compliment:
- Starkist Tuna
- Playtex Tampons
- Flinstones Vitamins
- Dannon Yogurt
- Con Agra
- SC Johnson (they are AWESOME!)
- and many more!
It only takes a minute to do! I have a Google toolbar with AutoFill (fills in forms with my information automatically so that I don’t have to type it a million times) so that makes it much easier and faster.
It’s also so much more fun checking the mail when it’s filled with coupons and free products!
