Coupon Tip - 11/16/09


Welcome to a cold and dreary Monday! You'll probably be staying inside today which inspired today's coupon tip! I used to do this more often a few years back, and now I only do it every now and then even though I should get back on the band wagon - so maybe today I'll take some time out and get on it!

Today's coupon tip is to think about your favorite brands and take the time to drop an email to those companies. Often times a compliment about how you love to use a product will get you some free coupons! And even better than that, sometimes these coupons are for FREE items not just cents off of a product (even though you'd likely use those too if it's a product you love)!

Kristin from Couponing to Disney has a great list that will help you get started here. All of the companies that sent her coupons for FREE items are at the top and she has convenient links to their online feedback forms. If you don't find anything on the list that appeals to you, look at what's right in your own cabinet and start there!

On the flipside, if you ever have an unpleasant experience with a product, ALWAYS let the company know. Almost 100% of the time they will send you a coupon for a free item to replace the product. This could be anything like faulty packaging, reduced package sizing or broken diaper tabs! Although, don't complain unless you really have something to complain about!

Not sure what to write? Kristin has some tips here that will help getting your writing juices flowing. Companies love to hear from their consumers when you take the time to tell them how you feel! Good luck!
