Contact A Company For Coupons (And Other Goodies)

Many people do not know that consumers can get great coupons by contacting product companies. I've done this off and on over the last few years, and I've received quite a few good coupons in return. Sometimes I've even received multiple coupons for FREE products!

I highly encourage you to give it a try! Just go through the list, find some favorite companies, send them an email letting them know your honest opinion on their products, and make sure to leave your mailing address in your message!

I have a list of companies that do NOT mail consumers any goodies (including P&G and Kraft).  Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see all those brands :/

Many people like sending generic fill-in-the-blank emails such as:
To whom it may concern, I love using (product). I think (product) is wonderful. Could you please send me some coupons for (product)?" Sincerely, Suzy Q at 123 Maple Street in Metropolis, IL
There is nothing wrong with these type of emails. However, I have found I get much better coupons when I personalize my emails with real-life experiences, memories, etc. Of course, these emails take a little more time! There is a format for these emails where it's still somewhat fill-in-the blank, but it's more personal. This is an example of own of my emails:
Dear Geno's East,
I just wanted to tell you how much my husband and I LOVE Gino’s East frozen pizza! We actually PREFER the taste over delivery/carryout from most pizza places. We also get to save some money WHILE enjoying a cozy night at home :)
We go back and forth between getting the Pepperoni Thin Crust and the Chicago Deep Dish pizza. The ingredients always taste fresh and the crust is delicious. It's no wonder why Gino’s East is our family favorite of all other frozen pizza brands and the ONLY brand I even consider when entertaining family and friends! I was wondering if you could please send me any coupons or other promotional products and samples?
In response, I ended up getting 2 coupons for FREE pizza in addition to a whole bunch of $1 and $0.50 off coupons. That made me a very happy camper :) Typically, I find when we really like a product (or have a valid complaint), it is much easier to write a personal email. And I prefer getting higher value coupons for products we love so it's win-win.

Do whatever method works for you and see what you get. Below is an ever growing, constantly increasing list of companies with links to their contact forms. After a company responds, I note which coupons I receive so you can get an idea what will happen. It may not be the same coupons, but there's not much to lose except a couple minutes of time. :)

**Be sure to set up and use an email address just for couponing so you don't flood your personal email with spam!**
