Contacting companies is a great way to get high value coupons. These coupons also normally have long expiration dates, so you can hold on to them until you find a good sale. Companies will normally honor coupon requests once a year.
Last time I posted about contacting companies for coupons, I contacted 48 companies and received coupons from half of them. Some of these companies even sent coupons for completely free products!
My goal this year is to contact 250 companies. I will do a post every Sunday to recap what companies I have contacted so far and what kind of coupons I have received.
Most of the companies I am contacting, I'm sending an email complimenting their products. There are a few that I'm sending a complaint to. Also, if I haven't tried one of their products, I'm sending an inquiry asking if they have any coupons or samples so that I can try one of their products.
I started emailing companies on April 7th and this is a picture of what I've received so far.
