Thanks to LadyWaterWind for this intro for this!:wink7:

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.

Here is VivaciousJewelz's google doc spreadsheet of companies she has listed so far with links to the contact page Companies to Contact in 2011 (https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0AhezP3Z4cuCqdFh3LVdDa0hzRDBEdUwtQTVNaUZ0W Gc&hl=en&output=html)....please rep her and/or PM her with any new or omitted companies. Have Fun!!:BigHand:

Thanks for starting this, Jessi!

The current database is outdated, so I'm working on a new spreadsheet with most of the old database data, as well as a bunch of companies added by Angeleyeza which I'll be happy to share with anyone interested as soon as it's completed, which should be this week.

I would like a copy of that speadsheet when you get it done. I need to see if all the companies I have contacted before are on that as well as any new ones that I find.:wink7:

Oooh I'm excited to do this this year. I contacted a few companies after I started couponing this year and got so many wonderful coupons - most of the time one or more free item coupons along with some $.xx off coupons as well.

Glad to have you guys!

I'm still working on the Company list spreadsheet and should have it ready to go by tomorrow. I'm not sure yet how to upload it to the site, but I'll have it in my Google docs and can share it with Google account users that way.

I'm gonna try out this challenge also....hoping for 3 companies a week, minimum...so 156 companies(prolly half that because at 6 mos, most companies will let you contact them again).

VivaciousJewelz
12-30-2010, 05:46:23 PM
Yay! Nice to see all the new faces!

I'll have the spreadsheet done by tomorrow and I just figured out how to publish it as a website, so everyone can access it. :smile:

Going to try to contact at least one company a day in 2011. So at least 365 and up to 1,095.(3 a day)

rachellepeters
12-30-2010, 06:25:07 PM
This worked out great last year, tons of q's....and from that thread I also learned to not hold back if you have a product complaint!

I will start off with what I received today from Ronzoni....If you have penne pasta boxes, and have noticed that about 5-10% of it is Rotini nooodles, Let them know, every box I bought on a sale had some of the other kind of noodles, so I just thought I'd mention it and tell them that I found it a little annoying. I got 4 Free's today!

Can't wait to see what 2011 brings!

Kulis
12-30-2010, 07:52:05 PM
Sounds like a good challenge for me. Count me in.
Think I'll start small and set a goal of five contacts per month.

You can usually only expect coupons from the same company once every six months or longer.

Thanks everyone for your time vested in to making this easy for the rest of us. We truly do appreciate it :BigHand:

Okay, everyone, the spreadsheet is up here (https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0AhezP3Z4cuCqdFh3LVdDa0hzRDBEdUwtQTVNaUZ0W Gc&hl=en&output=html). Feel free to PM me or post here with more companies as I know I didn't get them all, but this should get us started!

I email companies every three months. McCormick is one that I don't have to recontact though. They just send coupons to me every three months. It's nice for them just to show up in the mail without having to contact them again. I plan on starting in the morning and will post my list after I'm done.

mom2lucas
12-31-2010, 07:47:44 AM
I'm in for 7 companies a week. I got some really great coupons from Honeysuckle White Turkey last year.

Thanks for the speadsheet!! WOW!!

I plan on contacting atleast 7 companies in one week. Maybe more if I get time.

I can't wait for tomorrow and the weeks that come, contacting companies makes checking the mail soooo much more fun!

Has anyone had luck getting q's from smuckers uncrustables? I have tried and never get anything, my DD LOVES these, but I hate spending so much on only 4!

I'm pretty sure they will send coupons. I know they own Folger's and sent me $1/1 q's that don't expire for awhile. This is the only brand of coffee DH will drink and the insert q's always expire quickly. Can't hurt to try. I'm cleaning out my binders now to get ready for the mailman to bring new wonderful coupons. :smile:

snydersofhanover.com - I have received free pretzel coupons in the past.Snyders is on the East Coast - I do not know how far or how many states they sell thier product.

What's one more challenge for me to join? lol

I'm in for a minimum of 5 per week - I should be able to squeeze in one per weekday and take the weekends off!! :hysterical:

12-31-2010, 11:08:37 PM
I'm in for this, I'm mostly a lurker, but I could be more active. I suppose I could send at least one a week.

Does anyone have an example of the typical email they send a company?

justmama
12-31-2010, 11:39:23 PM
I'll go for an average of 5 per week.

Hain Celestial (hain-celestial.com), which does a handful of brands including Celestial Seasonings teas, Arrowhead Mills, and Earth Best, seem to respond okay to feedback. An honestly nice feedback from me about Rice Dream resulted in a few coupons for Dream products a couple months ago.

Also, I got a couple coupons for Pampers wipes from P&G when I submitted a letter explaining some dissatisfaction I had with one one of their products (after previously used the wipes with no problems).

The only thing about these two, and other large multi-brand companies, is that I feel a little weird about sending feedback for different products, especially similar-toned feedback (multiple negative or multiple positive), using the same contact form or at least having one "name" answer several feedback messages. Especially when they send me coupons. Like sending an email to Jill and Bob about loving their shirts and having Gene answer both messages with a discount code to a shirt store. LOL

I can say though (for people that are less accustomed to leaving product feedback), the way I write feedback is to remain factual, polite, and specific. I've never threatened a business/company over their products or service, either with negative press or "to never return". Merely offer realistic consequences ("will buy more" or "am disinclined to purchase more"). Likewise, I only give great praise because I honestly love something, no fluff just to look like fan #1.

I need to contact companies more. I've had lots of positive results in the past with getting coupons but for some reason I'm shy about doing it. But with this challenge I hope to get off my butt and get it done.

I'll contact at least 3 a week

I slacked off the last three months, so may this be a constant reminder!

Jessi
01-01-2011, 09:55:41 PM
For everyone that has been doing this awhile now.......which companies have you complimented and they gave you free coupons for their products? Just wondering so I know to contact them. I plan on starting to contact either tomorrow or Monday.

KRP1981
01-01-2011, 09:56:34 PM
Count me in! I'll aim for 5/week.

The last feedback I gave was this summer when I first tried Keebler's new Coconut Dreams (I think that was the name) cookies. I thought they were fan-tas-tic and I am not big on packaged cookies. But I emailed to let them know how good they were and to please keep them as a regular product. I got a link to print two $1 coupons. Not horrible...not fantastic. But I was happy with it.

01-01-2011, 10:12:14 PM
I've always have had good luck with Lance Crackers.Each of the last three years they have sent me 2 free cracker coupons and 4 $1.00 off coupons. The last free coupon from them has an expiration date of 02/28/11 so you may want to contact them March 1st - not sure if they have a new batch of free coupons yet or not.

Jessi
01-01-2011, 10:42:54 PM
I know Lance crackers, Sweet baby rays, country bob's, bar-s but that is all I have first hand experience with free coupons for compliments.

Count me in! I'll aim for 5/week.

The last feedback I gave was this summer when I first tried Keebler's new Coconut Dreams (I think that was the name) cookies. I thought they were fan-tas-tic and I am not big on packaged cookies. But I emailed to let them know how good they were and to please keep them as a regular product. I got a link to print two $1 coupons. Not horrible...not fantastic. But I was happy with it.


Here some more companies I have gotten freebies from:

Tuttorossa Tomatoes
Tampico
Soft Lips
Pictsweet
Mrs. Freshley's
Morton Salt
Martha White
Margaret Holmes
Idahoan
Hanover
El Monterey
DeWafflebakkers

If you go to the company's website who makes the product for the stores, you probably won't get a reply, at least I didn't when I tried it that way. Best bet is to let them forward it. I always keep my emails until the coupons arrive, so once when I didn't receive from Nathan's, I emailed them back to make sure they had forwarded and they forwarded again and I got the q :-0

Just a tip for all:

When contacting companies do not ask for coupons. Compliment them or complain to them about their products. If you are not familiar with the product look on their website and go under products and look at the products and see if they look appitizing to you or not then compose and email on paper before you contact them about the products you like using your eyes...tell them a little white lie when writing the email. I ususally tell them that my boyfriend reallly likes this product(insert one of the companies products here.) and so on. So some friendly advice to get any type of coupons insead of being turned down when asking directly for coupons.

Hi RnJ,

Unless I missed it, Bolthouse sends Qs once every 3 months. They send around 4 to 5 $1.00/1 beverage Q which is huge, because I rarely ever see Qs for their beverages in the inserts. www.bolthouse.com (http://www.bolthouse.com) just click on the contact us link.

Mebbe if you do another update at some point you can add that to your list!

And thanks for the list!!! It is awesome. I was just bellyaching about having to figure out how to export the QDB.


Okay, everyone, the spreadsheet is up here (https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0AhezP3Z4cuCqdFh3LVdDa0hzRDBEdUwtQTVNaUZ0W Gc&hl=en&output=html). Feel free to PM me or post here with more companies as I know I didn't get them all, but this should get us started!

Jessi, I've heard that and haven't gotten the same results. When complimenting I ask to be added to their mailing list and mention that I would also like to receive any coupons they have available to send. Most of the time I get a response that while they don't have an active mailing list they are happy to send some coupons. I think if you write "I like your (product), please send me coupons" you won't get much, but I also compliment a specific product and tell how much we use it, eat it, etc. I think it's all about how you go about asking.

I second this. I usually have good luck when I compliment a company on a product that I like of theirs or a product I want to try. I try to be specific instead of just sending a generic "I love your products" type email.

Also, with companies such as SC Johnson, Kraft or others that have many different brands I will contact them about one certain product and then wait a while until I contact them about another. I emailed SC Johnson about Ziploc yesterday but I will wait a while to contact them about Pledge.

Hi RnJ,

Unless I missed it, Bolthouse sends Qs once every 3 months. They send around 4 to 5 $1.00/1 beverage Q which is huge, because I rarely ever see Qs for their beverages in the inserts. www.bolthouse.com (http://www.bolthouse.com) just click on the contact us link.

Mebbe if you do another update at some point you can add that to your list!

And thanks for the list!!! It is awesome. I was just bellyaching about having to figure out how to export the QDB.

No problem, I'm glad people are finding it so helpful!

I updated the spreadsheet with the PMs I received as well as through Post #129 of this thread. I'll keep updating every few days as things are a bit busy for me to update on a daily basis, but I'll keep updating when I can! Great job guys!

For those of you with small pets or birds, friends or family with small pets or birds, or those who want to send your coupons to me for my small pets :biggrin:

Go to Kaytee.com then there's a link to contact us. I emailed this morning and told them I used their products for my guinea pigs and asked for coupons to help stretch my pet budget! Response: I would be happy to send you some Kaytee coupons. I will also provide you with a coupon id. # so you can call or email us once a month to request additional coupons.

Hi!! Here is what I use for companies I have either contacted before or products I have used for a long time:

" Hi there,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank your company for the continued wonderful products. We are a long time customer and we especially love...
Thanks so much
Kristy "

(then I just fill in the product(s) we like best from that company and why)

Then for companies I have never contacted or only just tried their products I do this:

"Hi there,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank your company for your wonderful products. We are a new customer and we just tried your...
Thanks so much
Kristy"

Hope this helps!!:smile:

Well, I have yet to recieve any mail for today and it's now 3:51pm. I think that is because we got 5 and a half inches of snow last night. My DBF told me he went out to get a few things at the grocery store up the road and she was just getting started on her route, and he had to pull her out of a ditch, so it might be awhile before I get any mail.

Contacted country bob's yesterday...this was a new one for me...Here is the response I got from them today:

" I am sending you 15 coupons for free bottles of Country Bobs. Please use 4 for yourself and please go to the store and get bottles at a time and give a bottle to a family member or friend that has not tried it. If you give them a coupon only 35% will use it. Also if you would like to receive 15 more or have family or friends that would like to receive 15, please email me name and address. Thanks so very very much for your help. Al Malekovic"

Never had a company offer to send that many coupons to friends AND family...So I didn't want to be too greedy and sent them a list of 5 peeps...

Go to Kaytee.com then there's a link to contact us. I emailed this morning and told them I used their products for my guinea pigs and asked for coupons to help stretch my pet budget! Response: I would be happy to send you some Kaytee coupons. I will also provide you with a coupon id. # so you can call or email us once a month to request additional coupons.

:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: If you buy these products at full price you know why I have all these smilely faces posted :biggrin:
Thanks for this, i contacted them and i got the same thing!


Is it just me or does anyone else feel that are not having as good of luck as last year when emailing companies? I have done this for about 2 years and always had pretty good luck getting great coupons but this year not so much. I am emailing the same companies too. Oh well, I will keep trying!!

I am always amazed how the same company will send out different responses. I contacted Simly Asia - and just got a thank you e-mail and that is it. The same with Thai Kitchen! I would have loved to gotten frees from them - Great Job Rachell!!!!!!

I contacted Steak Umm's and they said they don't send out coupons any more, but this is what I got:
"we are sending you some premiums that I hope you will enjoy!" - I have no idea what premiums are, but I do hope I enjoy them.

I also contacted Woeber Mustard - they said they are sending out a bottle of Mayo, and a free coupon.

Now I have to go and contact Country Bob's - hope I get 15 free coupons as well!

Lol, I added them, and if I contact them, I'll be happy to pass on the coupons for you!


Don't know if these sites are in the list but here is a link to some organic food companies you could contact

Organic Food Companies. Vegan and Vegetarian Food Companies. (http://www.ecobusinesslinks.com/organic-vegetarian-foods-manufacturers.htm)

I went through the list here and added all the US companies I could find contact info for! :thanks7:


Hi!! Here is what I use for companies I have either contacted before or products I have used for a long time:

" Hi there,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank your company for the continued wonderful products. We are a long time customer and we especially love...
Thanks so much
Kristy "

(then I just fill in the product(s) we like best from that company and why)

Then for companies I have never contacted or only just tried their products I do this:

"Hi there,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank your company for your wonderful products. We are a new customer and we just tried your...
Thanks so much

Hope this helps!!:smile:

ok so give your opinions.. Do you think the Co's are downgrading there coupons/home mailers? for ex. less high value Q's and more cents off Q's

TiggerToo
01-13-2011, 08:12:20 AM
I am seeing that! I am guessing too that most of the compliments...are the ones that are now just receiving the cents off...instead of the complaints..but that is my opinion. The few times I have sent a complaint I get the freebies...lately with the compliments, I have barely been getting anything.

I've gotten the same thing telling me not to expect coupons, they don't offer, etc. Seems like a generic response e-mail since I didn't even ask for coupons, just sent a compliment.

I'm thinking the same thing, i have contacted over 120 companies now, and have only received a couple envies, and other than popchips no frees! I'm not as worried about getting free's, but was hoping to see more q's come in, but my mail has been really slow.... My mom really wants me to start contacting companies for her house, but I'm going to wait it out and see who is actually sending q's, cuz even with googles autofill, it still takes a lot of time!

Today I got coupons from popchips (1 free, 1 b1g1, and 1 $1.00 off). I also got coupons from ore-ida (1 free bag, 1 75 cents off, 1 $1.00 off, 1 $1.00/2)

For those thinking that they're not getting a good response or the coupons are less than normal....don't worry. I think they're great, nothing's changed since last year. Of the 4 I emailed...2 free coupons already, plus cents off. It takes a week or two to get the q's...PLUS, I always ignore the emailed responses as they mean nothing. SOmetimes they say they have no q's...and them ba'am a week later you get them :) There are also companies that just never seem to send them- Sara Lee, all the pop companies, betty crocker related companies, kelloggs...etc, so if you email 10 companies tied into Kelloggs for ex:...that's 10 wasted emails :) Be patient :) We're only 13 days into the new year and I think that alot of you will get bombarded with q's in the next week......so don't panic yet :) It will be great!
