    Mail 2011 Contacting Companies Challenge

    Thanks to LadyWaterWind for this intro for this!

    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

    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....please rep her and/or PM her with any new or omitted companies. Have Fun!!

    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    The current database is outdated, so I'm working on a new spreadsheet with most of the old database data, as well as a bunch of companies added by Angeleyeza which I'll be happy to share with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.

    Consider downloading this cool new Coupon Savings Tracker to keep track of your expenses starting in the NEW YEAR!! :)

    You are welcome!

    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.

    You can if you want to, but you don't have to, I'll have a new spreadsheet with all the companies you gave me in the old thread ready by Friday, hopefully.

    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.
