How to Contact Companies for Coupons

 How to Contact Companies for Coupons

 

One question I get asked a lot is how to contact companies for coupons! Most companies love to hear about your good experience and most offer coupons as a reward! Also, if you’ve had a problem they will usually send coupons to try to bring back your business. Many companies will send coupons once a month. I suggest keeping a list of the companies you’ve contacted, when you contacted them, and the results. This way you know what companies you’re having the best success with as well as when you can contact them again. This is the form I use: it shows the date contacted, company, specific product, contact method (I save email addresses if applicable), and the result – coupon, thank you, etc. Some companies will consistently send coupons and some are hit and miss. You can contact one company per day or do seven at a time – whatever you have time to do. It only takes moments and usually brings big rewards! I would also suggest saving each company in your favorites in a special folder so you don’t have to re-find the website each time you want to contact them.

 

Here’s how to contact companies for coupons:

1. Write down a list of products you frequently use. Search the cupboard or take a peek at your price book.

2. Google the company and visit their website – most companies have a “contact us” form to submit directly through their website or will provide you with their email.

3. Contact them and tell them why you love their products so much. Don’t be afraid to also mention what you didn’t like or if you had a problem with their product. You should also include the product code if you’re complaining. Be honest and a little cheesy!

4. In my experience, directly requesting coupons doesn’t work. I have found I get a much better response writing a cheesy message and telling them what I like than saying “hey, ya got any coupons?”

5. Remember to include your contact info! I would also suggest creating an email address you use only for contacting companies and for freebie request forms.

Here is a sample to use – tweak as needed:

Hello,

I am writing to let you know how much our family loves your Texas toast! It is one of the only foods my picky seven year old requests and loves to eat! I appreciate you making such a quality product for me to serve my family.

Sincerely,

Layne Q

    I haven’t did this for years. Last time I did was so long ago, I used the phone. The lady I spoke with, after telling her how great the product was and how much we liked it, her response was and what would you like for me to do, send you a coupon or something. This upset me. My response was, no, I would not like for you to send me anything, but for your remarks, I don’t think I will buy your product any longer and hung up.
    This was the last time I called to compliment a product.

      Hi Denise! That’s terrible that you had such a negative experience. I have never had that happen to me. Maybe you could try again? You may find it to be a positive experience and you may gain some extra coupons from it!

    Layne,
    Thanks for the tips. I have had both good and bad as I’m sure most of us have and to my surprise I have received some very nice coupons from a few companies that I use and love there products. I never thought of organizing it to once a month or more but thanks, gonna beg for more.

      I’ve had pretty good success doing it and I think it’s worth the effort, especially for companies that you don’t see coupons for all the time. Good luck! Thanks for the comment. 🙂

    This totally works! I’ve also gotten free stuff and samples by doing this. And, like you said, sometimes letting them know what you DON”T like, as long as you’re respectful, gets you far, too!

      So true, Carla! I’ve also found that I will sometimes get freebies in the mail a long time later from them because they added me to their mailing list! Thanks for stopping by!
