    Funstuff 2012 Contacting Companies Challenge!!

    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" 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. Have Fun!!
