Contacting a company to let them know your opinion on a product is a great way to get coupons that usually 1. have a higher value than what you would normally see in a sunday paper insert, 2. you wouldn't perhaps see at all in sunday inserts, or 3. to get coupons for free products.

Just as in a previous thread, join on in and let us all know who you're contacting, what you're getting, and etc. It's very simple to contact a company. Just go to their website, look for the Contact Us link, and most have an email form you can send off giving them your opinion.

Don't forget to use, and add your information, to the Contacting Companies Database located here (http://www.hotcouponworld.com/contact-companies-for-coupons-database/)

Make sure you keep a record of who you contacted, when, what they sent, and any other pertinent information. Most companies have a 6 month, or so, waiting time before you can contact them again and they will send more coupons.

Try to think outside of your normal brand or area. For instance, if you're looking at eating healthier/more organic, try and contact a few organic companies, let them know that your family is looking at making this lifestyle change. Fruitabu, an organic smooshed fruit snack, used to give frees when contacted.

Remember, this is a great way to really let a company know how well, or not, they are doing. You, normally, get great coupons and they get a free unsolicited opinion to help make their product better. This doesn't have to be an essay on how you feel about their product, but you should make it worth their time to read it.

Good luck on your writing! I am going to start thinking about my list of who I want to contact.

I started this last week... unfortunately I got a lot of e-mails saying thanks for buying their products so far no coupons.

Hi, I can't figure out how to move in the database. Can anyone tell me how to make it fullscreen? This is a good idea. Thanks!

I did nothing yesterday. Well, I worked on the Smoking Promotions forum, but as to contacting people, pish, that went out the window.

I'm doing a few this morning though and so far have contacted Bar S, Amy's, and Atkins.


Elle-TN, don't worry when they don't mention sending you ones. Sometimes they do, but more often than not it's a surprise in your mail box. Just make sure that when they don't have an area to list your address, you add it into the comment box. Not sure if it helps or not, but I figure they're more willing to send coupons when you provide the address than they are to ask for your address.

I usually do like 'comment, thank you for your time, name with addy'.

christmaslady, i don't believe you can make it fullscreen, but let me get with Sweets, she runs it, and see what she says.

cspigner28, great to have you on board! It's so much fun to get all these nice letters in the mail with wonderful frees in them! You'll be addicted to it in no time :D

I did A-D yesterday and will do more today. I just do them in increments. Everyone yesterday responded back to my emails. Only a few said they were sending something out. But just as previously stated they don't always tell you they are sending you something.
Good luck everyone.

LWW, thanks for mentioning Amy's! I totally forgot about them, and have been addicted to their boxed mac n cheese for ages. I know, funny item, but they have cool flavors like white cheddar. I remember when you pretty much had to go to the co-op to buy them, now I can get them at the regular grocery store!

When I contact companies, my letters usually are along the lines of:

Dear:
Just writing to let you know that I really love / dislike (favorite, or not so great product) --- if it's a really awesome product, I will usually say why.

I would love to be added to your postal mailing list.

Thank you,
The crazy lady ;)

It's fast, it's simple, and roboform stores it for me, and I just change the name of the product and what I like about it ;) Just a thought. And when I get all the way to the part where I get to leave a comment, if they have not yet asked for my info, I leave it there - if a form comes up after I hit submit, oh well - roboform will do that too, no worries lol!!!

I'm so excited that this challenge has been started again! I was just reading through the thread from last year and was so inspired that I started contacting companies today.

Today I have contacted:
Noxzema = Complaint
Ziploc = Compliment

I was going to contact Skintimate, was redirected to Schick and there in bold red writing said they do not send coupons, freebies, etc. Bummer.

I have a question, do you check the box to receive e-mails and special offers from the companies when submitting your feedback?

I tend to. I sign up with a yahoo email addy that gets all those kinds of things. I'm a little superstitious and think it helps my chances of getting coupons in return. Kind of like those little troll dolls at bingo, if you don't have one you're not winning, lmao.

I wonder if the skintimate thing is newer. I remember last year contacting them and getting a free coupon in return. But then, I just made a comment I'd been meaning to make for a long time, about a after shave product they made for a little while a few years ago, and asked what had happened to it.

chitownmelli
01-07-2010, 02:19:01 PM
I saw that red blurb of evil text, I still asked, and they still didn't send anything lol!

LWW, were you asking them about that creamy shave stuff they used to have? Because I loved that stuff and can't find it anywhere any more. :(

Haha I like the trolls analogy! I have a funny childhood history with those scary things. :giggle2: Thanks for answering! I really should make a new email for this, I feel like I might be getting a lot of emails in the near future.

It was a few years ago, like back when I was in high school and those days are a decade gone. But it was an actual after shave product for women. Like, put on your regular shaving cream, shave, and then put this stuff on after. It was soooo nice. Here's an ebay listing of it, and seriously, if I had an extra $70 laying around for 4 little bottles...I'd be sorely tempted. 4 Skintimate MOISTURIZING AFTER SHAVE GLISTENING PEAR - eBay (item 230361535732 end time Jan-23-10 16:51:36 PST) (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230361535732&rvr_id=&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=WVF%3F&GUID=4fa8761b11f0a0e2043049a0ffebaa8a&itemid=230361535732&ff4=263602_263622)

Though, that's the pear one, and I only ever got to use the raspberry rain one.

chitownmelli
01-07-2010, 03:21:29 PM
Yeah, that stuff was out at the same time as the other stuff that I was talking about. I remember it. I only used one bottle of the aftershave stuff, didn't really care for it... or forgot to use it. I'm silly like that.

I really liked it. It was like an ungross greased lightning leg, lol.

I don't remember the other stuff though. :(

Added Blue Diamond and Buddig. I think that's all I'm doing for today.

Found out Buddig has a little club though, and when you join and then verify your email they have a printable coupon you can get. I really need to get some ink so I can keep up on the printable coupons >.<

chitownmelli
01-07-2010, 03:57:21 PM
It was a thick lotiony cream that didn't wash off easily when you accidentally turned around and let your leg go through the shower stream lol! I wish I could find some of that again.

chitownmelli
01-07-2010, 03:58:14 PM
Buddig will probably send you like 4 frees or 4 q's for .25/1 2 oz pack. I normally end up getting the frees from them, so fingers crossed for you.

Yeah, I emailed them once before I believe and got some frees. Not bad, and though it's probably not the healthiest lunch meat out there, it's not awful either. At least DH eats it a good bit.

UPDATE: Noxzema answered my complaint e-mail within a few hours. They asked if they could send me a replacement coupon. I said of course!

chitownmelli
01-07-2010, 04:03:04 PM
Heck, I know what you mean. I actually write to those hot pocket people, and then actually go buy hot pockets because that buys me 2 days where I don't have to pack up a whole lunch for DH. He thinks that side dishes are cookies and leftover cake. For you and me, that's okay - because we're us.... but his sides are leftover dinner sides, yogurt, veggies and dip and maybe one junk food lol. So you see, I have to make his lunch for him or he punishes me by taking too much junk food!

I think I will write to Buddig too lol!!!

I'm going to write to Entanmann's today. They usually send a pretty blue 1/1 and our store has their stuff 2/$5 next week, and that q would double.

Skintimate used to be an SC Johnson product but was sold to Energizer, who makes the Schick brand. You probably got a coupon from SC Johnson before it was sold.

I hope I'm wrong, and good luck, but I can't think of a single time that p&g has sent something for a compliment. Now if something goes wrong with their product, they usually send something though.

Procrastinating sounds a lot funner :P lol

Ok, I'll do 3. Let me think, hmmm, Birdseye cause they usually give some good ones, On-Cor cause they usually give a free or two, annnnnnddddd Edy's, cause they send some from like their parent company, so you get a few.

I love contacting companies, everyday the mailbox is like Christmas. And I LOVE using the freebies as filler to reach the $5/$20 CVS deals!

Frees over the last month
Pledge 5
Fantastik 3.25
Playtex 5.99
Roberts Dairy - Gal of milk
Breyers, free ice cream

It sure does make me sad though when I have a day or two with no coupons :(((

I'm SO happy that so many of you ladies are joining in!
I know I'll sure be here more to keep up with how everyone is doing, and that will keep me on track as well! I am trying to start with products that we use a lot, but the database and other threads on here have been very helpful as well. And every time one of you posts about contacting someone, I realize that I didn't think of them and that's one more for my ever-lengthening list.

Just received the coupon from Ziploc in the mail.
I got one for a FREE box of bags, up to a $3 value.
Also got a booklet worth $19.95 for many other SC Johnson products!

Pepsi answered the email saying nothing about coupons, simply that they would tell HQ I liked their product.

Nabisco said to look in the Sunday paper, look for tear pads, and on packages for coupons.

Still contacting companies....I like seeing the posts of who you gals are emailing as it's hard to think of EVERY company.

A couple more I received coupons from last month

T Marzettis (I love their dips!)
Fresh Xpress (bagged salad)

They weren't frees but $1 off!

I don't have any office suite things on this computer, so I've just been using the windows calendar that was already on there, under the programs section, and just putting in 'new appointments' and listing them as the companies I've contacted. Seems to be doing ok so far.

I need motivated some companies just referred me to signing up for their coupons (budding and coles) .
Campbells said they would send me a complementary coupon as did P&G for drano .
Duracell said something like getting back to me (thats been over a week ago)

Not a problem. Just though of something, I remember at one point somewhere seeing someone said they used the same thing, just the calendar stuff. But they would also jump up 6 months and make a little note saying that it was ok to contact that company again, since most have a 6 month, give or take, policy of sending coupons. You know, contact them in January, they probably won't send again until June or July ish. So they'd not only put a note on when they contacted, but the date it should be good to contact them again.

Did you go to heniz.com or is there a website for the ketchup? We are down to two bottles and the kids eat it on EVERYTHING. Ketchup is something we are brand loyal.

I went to heniz.com and found the contact us tab. I gave them a compliment about how I was brand loyal just like you all are. They contacted me a day later via email telling me they were going to send me coupons and thanking me for being a loyal customer. That was roughly a week ago and today I recieved these from them!(It took 2 days to get to me via snail mail!)

I am trying to figure out more companies to contact that we use alot of. I think I contacted just about everyone off of my wishlist that we use alot of. I think next I will contact Dove, and Caress. I really need to stop doing HBA things...we have alot as is. Food Items is what I really need now!

01-13-2010, 05:09:44 PM
I love seeing everyone so excited about this! I did great last year doing this, just didn't keep good records. Maybe we can help each other by doing a certain theme/topic everyday?! Seems like everyone is into dental...lol right now. Maybe one day can be Baby day , smell good day, (deoderant, powder lotion etc) Pasta...I dont know, just a thought to keep us all motivated and see who comes up with different companies! I seem to go for the meat companies first, cuz they always cost the most!!! And remember, just because you may not need a certain item ie baby stuff, doesnt mean you cant write and then give it as a gift or a trade!!!!!

Just contacte Clean and Clear, Aveeno, and Bandaids.
I am surprised Aveeno hasn't replied. I emailed them Dec 1st and nothing.


I'm so excited that this challenge has been started again! I was just reading through the thread from last year and was so inspired that I started contacting companies today.

Today I have contacted:
Noxzema = Complaint
Ziploc = Compliment

I was going to contact Skintimate, was redirected to Schick and there in bold red writing said they do not send coupons, freebies, etc. Bummer.

I have a question, do you check the box to receive e-mails and special offers from the companies when submitting your feedback?
I contacted them at the end of the summer and they sent me One .75Q

Jessi
01-13-2010, 06:58:10 PM

Just another suggestion....I got a notebook and pen and went thru all of my kitchen cabinets, fridge, freezer, big freezer, then went to the bathroom, and then the laundry room, I wrote down every possible product I could, thats where I am getting my list from. When I can, I try to think of competiting products (hunts vs heinz, glade vs airwick) just in case I dont have one of 'em in my stockpile! I am up to 95 as of right now. Still trying to catch up to my goal of 5 per day, I'm off work tom so maybe I can get caught back up! If anyone wants a copy of my excel sheet I will be glad to send it to you, not sure how to post it on here, and hate taking up the room to post them all here!

I had an issue with 2 Nerf PS2 controller we bought over a year ago. We spent $30 a piece for them (just because we liked them so much), but after about 4 months of use (adult use) the joystick didnt work right on either so we chunked them. Wondering if it would b worth my time to contact Nerf now?

OH, I have a question for the people that have been doing this a while...
I had an issue with 2 Nerf PS2 controller we bought over a year ago. We spent $30 a piece for them (just because we liked them so much), but after about 4 months of use (adult use) the joystick didnt work right on either so we chunked them. Wondering if it would b worth my time to contact Nerf now?

It can't hurt to try. The least that would happen is they just say sorry for the inconvenience or something.

Oh, I just remembered. I contacted Tidy Cat earlier and just emailed Mrs Butterworth. Getting the mail now is like when i was a kid. I almost feel like I am stalking the mail man..hoping new q's arrive :))

Got my Bush Beans q's today, 1 free Grillin Beans up to 3.50 and 3 .55 off 1 baked beans. I specifically said I was interested in trying their new grillin beans, thats probably why I got the free.

emailed a couple companies today, but already forgot who! I think I am doing too much of this, it's all a blur, but I will post as I receive qs! If I didn't already post this one, I also got this week 6 .55 of 1 pack of Angel Soft, and 2 .55 off Northern. Patiently waiting now for a great sale on these at Dillons to get those doubled!

I'm SOO jealous on 2 accounts :giggle2: 1. free grillin beans, and 2. your store double .55 Q's :wink7:

Great JOB!!!:BigHand: Thanks for the Angel Soft idea too :whistle67:

01-14-2010, 03:45:46 PM
I wish my stores doubled over 50 cents! Oh well!

rachellepeters
01-14-2010, 03:52:59 PM
it will double but max at 1.00 so a .55 is the same as a .50. That's odd that your stores won't do that???

BTW. I emailed bush less than a month ago and got q's about 3 weeks ago. so you might just try again and tell them you're interested in trying the grillin beans, who knows maybe they send another. The first time I got 3 .55 q's 1 off baked, and 2 2/.55 any beans (besides baked)

Give it a shot in a couple weeks

Jessi
01-14-2010, 03:56:45 PM
Not too sure why they won't do that for doubling.

I just got done emailing everyone that I have mentioned all thoughout the day and add one more to the list is Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce.(love this stuff!)

Kashi replied that they are coming out with a new cereal and they were sending me some high value coupons for my next purchase.

Purina- I emailed them and asked them how their beneful would stand up against the brand I use for my dog now. They replied with a list of their beneful brands and info about them all and said they were sending me high value coupons for me to try their product.

Interstate bakeries said thanks and go online to sign up for their newsletter and or print off .50 off coupon.

all of the others have said thanks for the kind words and so on and so forth. I'll post if I get anything.

LWW, thanks for mentioning Amy's! I totally forgot about them, and have been addicted to their boxed mac n cheese for ages. I know, funny item, but they have cool flavors like white cheddar. I remember when you pretty much had to go to the co-op to buy them, now I can get them at the regular grocery store!

When I contact companies, my letters usually are along the lines of:

Dear:
Just writing to let you know that I really love / dislike (favorite, or not so great product) --- if it's a really awesome product, I will usually say why.

I would love to be added to your postal mailing list.

Thank you,
The crazy lady ;)

It's fast, it's simple, and roboform stores it for me, and I just change the name of the product and what I like about it ;) Just a thought. And when I get all the way to the part where I get to leave a comment, if they have not yet asked for my info, I leave it there - if a form comes up after I hit submit, oh well - roboform will do that too, no worries lol!!!

I use Autofill! Saves a TON of time!!!

I'm so excited that this challenge has been started again! I was just reading through the thread from last year and was so inspired that I started contacting companies today.

Today I have contacted:
Noxzema = Complaint
Ziploc = Compliment

I was going to contact Skintimate, was redirected to Schick and there in bold red writing said they do not send coupons, freebies, etc. Bummer.

I have a question, do you check the box to receive e-mails and special offers from the companies when submitting your feedback?


The last time I did my contacting companies, I actually called Skintimate instead of emailing, I told them how much I loved their shaving cream bottle in hand lol, and I got 2 frees :)

rainbowxbrit
01-18-2010, 07:36:12 PM
The last time I contacted companies (which was in March of 09), I had 63 on my list. I didn't receive q's from every place but I ended up with more than enough to make me happy I spent all the time doing it. I had about 25 frees and the rest were cent's off which came out to free or nearly free :).
I've been procrastinating contacting companies again, but my job is cutting hours, and I somehow managed to get Mon-Fri off, so what better time than now to do this?
I kept track of it all by pencil and paper last time, I think I'm going to create a Google spreadsheet for this list.

So here's my list of companies.. so far..
Angel Soft
Aussie
Bagel Bites
Banquets
Betty Crocker

I'm sure I'll think of more within the next few days. My friend is setting me up with spreadsheet to help me keep track of them easier lol. I haven't decided if I'm going to do e-mails and let RoboForm help me, or if I'm just going to call the companies. (if there is an option to). I wonder if calling versus emailing can score you better coupons?

What do ya'll think?


(Ooh and I'm going to get this all done by Friday)

Wish me luck and good luck to all the rest of ya'll <3 !

I just finished the list that was in the database. Now tomorrow I'll look at the lists posted here and email them.
I will also email Outback because every time we get to go orders they are cold, smaller portions and stuff is missing or isn't right. So, from now on no more togo orders from there.

Jergens (Kao brand) said they don't mail Q's but there is another Q coming.
3/7 $1.00 off any Natural Glow and $1.00 off any Jergens Moisturizer

I know they email Q's and they suggested signing up for their newsletter. I like when companies reply even if they say no. It's nice to know they care.


Bummer. I just contacted John Fredia (A Kao Brand) to tell them I like the Brilliant Brunette, but do not like their new Root Awakening product. Guess my first contact will be non-productive:sad:

There was no mail in my box today. I mean, no mail at all. I'm so sad! Plus with how the mail lady comes anywhere between who knows really, I think it's 2 and 5 pm, but could be earlier or later on the cut off times, I don't really know if it just hasn't gotten here yet today or if there really is no mail for me today :(

Quick question for everyone - I'm always conflicted on this. Today I sent emails to several companies. I noticed that two of the products I sent compliments to are made by the same company - Kleenex and Scott tissue. What are your experiences with this coupon wise. Do you ever contact the same company twice in the same day (my case was accidental) or do you wait a little while. Thanks in advance.

rachellepeters
01-19-2010, 04:47:52 PM
I have done that...I did it with Angel Soft and Northern, didn't realize they were the same co til I hit submit on the 2nd one. Ended up getting coupons on the same day from both of them. I TRY not to do it...so many of them have 10-15 products that I want to email, so with SC J and others I have emailed them on a different product once a week. I don't know if they go to different depts or not???

I have contacted all of Georgia-Pacific & SC about all of their products before and never had I problem. Both companies are very coupon friendly. I wish all were this way. I got 4-0.55/1 Angel Soft q's today. Hope for more tommorrow.

I emailed SCJohnson a few hours apart on two products. They answered my compliment on both emails in one and I got one coupon book.

The last time I did my contacting companies, I actually called Skintimate instead of emailing, I told them how much I loved their shaving cream bottle in hand lol, and I got 2 frees :)


Very cool thanks for the info I'll try that!

I got an envelope from Henkel, the company who makes Renuzit air freshners and they sent 6 40 cent off coupons.

Got the spread sheet goin, and have began on my list. I have 218 companies now, to contact.. heh.. crazy, eh?

I'm really getting down and dirty.

I just officially began and have done 14 in the last hour.


Some of the companies had coupons offered on their site, but I don't have a printer, (should look into buying a cheap one, for black and white printables) so I contacted them anyway, asking if they could mail me the coupons, since I can't get them otherwise. (It cost $.15 per black and white page at the library, not really worth it imo)

I plan on posting my spreadsheet in a few months, after I've received everything.

01-19-2010, 07:57:01 PM
I also have a column on if the company offers printables on the site, and have the links bookmarked.

A lot of the ones I have are ConAgra.

Now, what do you ladies do? Do you submit one entry for all of the products, or are you filling out one for each product?

I've been doing it for each product. I'm hoping to get coupons for that particular item, and not a coupon booklet for the ConAgra line.

Guess we'll wait and see!

Can I join in? I contacted companies last summer, but stopped because I ran out of steam trying to contact so many at once. I'm aiming now for 5 a week, which I think should be more manageable for me.

My list this week is:
Purina
Del Monte
Folgers
Birds Eye
Bush's

I've already emailed the first three and have received an email back from Purina saying they're sending me coupons, so I can't wait to see what they send! I have 4 cats and 2 dogs that all eat Purina food, so I made sure to mention that I use both Cat Chow and Beneful. I could really use some coupons for all those hungry bellies! :wink7:

With them I fill out one for each product but wait a couple days in between compliments.

Got email from Martin's Bakery saying keep an eye on my mailbox for coupons coming.
Nothing in my mail today but I also talked with SC Johnson about my Pledge stainless steel wipes being dried out and not working. They said they discontinued them in July and will issue a refund of the national average selling price and would send me coupons for frees of their Pledge multipurpose wipes that are supposed to work on stainless steel appliances. Yeah! I love that word free.

Also heard from Stouffer's they are sending me a coupons for free family size meals as I complained about their meat sauce lasagna.

Others have replied but didn't mention they were sending anything so I'll let you know if they do.
