Contacting a company to let them know your opinion on a product (whether negative or positive) 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.

Join in and let us all know who you're contacting, what you sent Compliment/Complaint, what you received, 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.

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. This will also be used to update the spreadsheet below so others may contact as well!

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. We had a few members keeping lists as they did their grocery shopping; if they saw a new brand, or a brand they liked, they would note it and contact when they got home.

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 a spreadsheet "borrowed" :giggle2: from VivaciousJewelz from the 2011 google doc spreadsheet we used last year! I will work on keeping it updated througout the year. I will add a "newly added companies section at the bottom for those of you who prefer to copy/paste the document into a spreadsheet of your own. That way you will be able to pull out the new companies! Companies to Contact in 2012 (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhssKI7oEyFBdGROcmhlS2FGSHNoV2NDRGI5S1REZ Hc). Have Fun!!

A majority of the time, I'm using the Contact Us link on their website and they ask for your mailing address. If I'm doing an email, I specifically ask for coupons and give them my mailing address.

Don't forget to search for all your company info using swagbucks! It's just like searching with google but when you search with swagbucks you earn points for searching and the points add up super fast to earn a variety of rewards (I usually get amazon gift cards;-)...I was just searching healthy choice b/c I tried a new flavor today and didn't care for it...who knows, maybe I'll get a free coupin out of it;-)

Everyone has a different system. Some of our members call, some email. Some have a "canned" compliment they send and just spice it up by adding a specific product they are writing about, some specifically ask for coupons. Last year, we actually had a few members writing and asking for samples of products. Some members do have luck when you send in complaints, but with some companies, if you select complaints on their contact form, they will ask for UPC code and additional information so be sure to have the product available when and if you send a complaint.

Contacted: boogie wipes (compliment) (they have been a neat discovery in my world...love them...but they are WAY too expensive to buy. Right now they have a coupon on their website, but it is a pdf and for some reason I don't have great success with pdf printables at my stores??)

I have contacted them in the past and they sent me a big box of samples one time. I agree that they are really neat! My DD has only really used them once or twice because that's all she needed, but she really liked them. Hope you get some! :wavehi:

Last year I received free samples (or even full size products) from some companies just by telling them I wanted to try their products.

Here are some of those:

Celsius- 3 full size packs of cans different flavors (approx 36 cans)
Celestial Seasoning- samples x 6
Everybodys nuts- samples
7th generation- 2 diapers, 1 box of tampons, 1 sample dish detergent, 1 sample laundry detergent
Arizona tea- really cool reusable bag
Bigelow tea- samples
Spice world- several full size products

Contacted

All
Angel Soft
Avenno (but forgot to give them my address...DARN IT...only gave them my email b/c that's all they "asked for" I mean to type it at the end of my compliment...grrr)
Driscolls
Bigelow Tea (asking for a k-cup sample...DH just got a new coffee maker and I never thought about asking for a sample until I read the post above! Thanks!!)
Celestial Seasonings (asking for k-cup sample)
Cuties
Jif

With earthbound farms (or other places like this)...they have a option "coupon request" Would you guys pick that or pick general statement? I mean, of course I'm hoping for coupons...is that the best way to get them though?

I was inspired by reading this thread so I decided to give it a shot. Earthbound farms is SUPER responsive! I sent an email Wednesday and received a response Thursday with links to a $5 q and a $1 q! I also received a sample of Woolite that I had requested awhile ago, but the coupon that came with it was expired! I contacted them and they sent me a $3/1 q good for any woolite, resolve, airwick, lysol, easy off, resolve, or finish product-so I should be able to get some free/cheap product with that one....getting ready to contact a few more, thanks!

I'm in for this challenge. After another doctor visit for my husband and several labs and tests later, we found out the reason or his pain- a very large gall stone. we got this info one day after the car went in for a new transmission ($3000, but still cheaper than a brand new car! The savings account is being drained for that alone). :sad22:What a way to start 2012, huh? :panic1:

If I can keep our grocery bill down for the items that we regularly buy by contacting companies and getting decent coupons, I'm all in.

Do most of you email or send a snail mail letter? I plan on sending the snail mail letter, I know it will cost more, but my parent's dear, sweet neighbor is at risk of losing her postal job if they close her PO. Even though it is out of my way, I will gladly make the trip to buy stamps and mail letters at her PO (it will help keep it open). I also plan on including a UPC or recent "panel" or POP in the envie to see if it will help me net some coupons. I'm hoping it shows "proof" that I am a loyal customer.

Good luck everyone! :wink7:

i have been slacking the last couple of days, been kinda busy, making up for it today. when y'all contact the companies do you lay it on thick? or do you just keep it short and sweet?

I do a bit of both. The last couple of days, when I have been contacting a company, I have a cooking blog where I post pics, I have actually been including a pic with a comment about their product (of course only if I have used their product in the meal) and I have been getting frees from it. Complaints, I do explain to them in detail what my complaint is, otherwise, with just a general compliment, I keep it fairly short, but will name the product that I am complimenting.

Some if you ask say no..some say yes. It's a gamble. When I start I plan on writing letters and mailing them. I know this is money out of my pocket but with sooo many people emailing them these days I think it's better for me.

I am "snail" mailing the companies too. the Post Office that I frequent is on the verge of being eliminated. The PO closest to me is already on the chopping block. If the PO I frequent is to be closed, I'll have to travel at least 15 miles to the next one. So to lend support, I have been stocking up on stamps (plus they go up next week) and mailing letters out. I am also including a UPC or panel from the product I am writting about. Sort of like proof that I actually purchased the product.

I have never gotten anywhere with email, except for product complaints. I haven't gotten any responses yet, but I just started this week. :wink7:

No when I contact companies I never ask them directly for coupons. I always compliment or give them a complaint. For Huggies I told them that I am a long time user but that I was particularly unhappy with their size 6 diapers because it seems like they dont hold as much and they rip real easily from the tabs. an they sent me coupons. Honesty has been going a long way with these companies I am happy.

Sill not in the best mood. So I decided to write to Maxwell House and give them a piece of my mind. Told them how I switched to Folgers Black Silk. Also told them that I am severaly disapointed with the lack of Kraft coupons in my area. Non in the papers, no tearpads, no blinkies. And being the the 6th largest city you would think that they would try and circulate more coupons in the paper. (Well we probably have more. That is acording to the census. But there are so many illegal people here I am sure it another 1/2 to 1 million extra people). They are lossing out to a big population that are now buying store brands instead of Kraft brands. They need a new marketing team.

And what is up with you having to pay for the magazine now? And you have to pay for a coupon book? That it beyond rediculous.

Good luck with Kraft. I sent them a email one time about the salad dressings and how they changed the taste of them. I hate anything with soybean oil in it and they have put that in almost all of the dressings now. I never got a response from anyone. The only Kraft dressing I buy now is 1,000 island because DH likes it.

I hope to get to contacting soon. I've been so busy.

I got a nice package in the mail yesterday from King's Hawaiian. I hand wrote and mailed a letter to them praising their breads. I included a UPC code with the letter. I tried them for the first time three weeks ago and I mentioned that. I also indicated that I could not wait to try moreof their products. In return, I received 2 packages of 4 ct rolls, a coupon for a free item and a $1/1 coupon, a letter, receipe booklet, and a very sweet hand written card.

I was so surprised and flattered that I need to send "Barabara" (the customer service rep) a thank you card! So excited!!!! :)

that is an amazing envie!!! :biggrin: what did you say to them?


I wrote to them and told them that I was a long time user of their product. I told them that I love their product and that I am a regular user of their product. I told them also that because sometimes due to expenses I cannot always afford to buy the big packs and unfortunately the 12pkg of toilet paper I like is not available at the local retailer that I shop at. So it was compliment with a slight complaint in it. But its the truth I wish I could get the 12 pkg at the store I usually shop at.

@Jessi I just got today the $5.00 off coupon for J&J too and it was off a complaint as well that I had. But the complaint wasn't really toward them it was more toward the retailer that did not want to do anything about the product and would not refund me my money.

I have just started contacting some companies. Most of the ones I already contacted are things we regularly use and I have complimented or given comments about the product. I've only gotten one email back so far saying they are sending coupons (SeaPak), the rest have just said "thank you for your comments, we are listening." I wonder if they might still send some... a lot of the ones I did yesterday though were Con Agra foods, for several different products.

Decided to take on the challange! Reading the above posts helped me make my long list of companies to contact. I also worked on the list by looking in my pantry, bathrooms, fridge, freezer and laundry room for all the products I use often.

Companies contact and received coupons from:
Ora-Ida
Zatarains
Daisy sour cream
Jif
Martha White
Simply pototoes
Apple and Eve
King Hawaiian
Bumble Bee
Chiquita bites

Companies that said "No and sent nothing:
Tyson
Shake n Bake (Kraft)
Hanes
Gatorade (PepsiCo)
Wonder Bread
Jennie O
Little Debbie
All Oxi-active (Sun products)
409 (Clorox company)
Marie Callendar (Conagra)
Red Baron pizza

Still contacting companies and will post when receive coupons.
Thanks for the challange! This has been very helpful.
