Happy Friday: Emailing Companies for Coupons

Sent from reader, Jamie:
A couple of weeks ago, I decided that I was going to try emailing companies and asking for coupons. I sent out a bunch of emails and was so surprised when my mailbox started filling up with coupons and even a package at my door with products! I have received positive responses from 9 companies so far. I wasn’t successful with many of my emails; I did receive a lot of responses telling me to check my local paper for coupons. However, the coupons that I did receive definitely
outweighed the no’s!

My method was going to the websites of the products that I love and use frequently and clicked on their ‘contact us’ link. I would write them a short note telling them why I liked their product and how I use it. Then I would ask if they
could direct me to where I could find coupons for their products and leave my name and address. I thought that your readers could benefit from the coupon friendly companies that I have come across!

Chobani – 3 magnets, 3 coupons for FREE 6 oz yogurt, and 3 coupons for 30 cents off a 6 oz yogurt
Fresh Express – 2 coupons for 55 cents off any packaged salad
Ocean Spray – 1 coupon for a FREE juice 64 oz or smaller
Skinny Cow – 2 coupons for 75 cents off any product
Edy’s – 2 coupons for 75 cents off any product
Barilla – 1 coupon for $1 off any microwaveable meal

Earthbound Farms and Yoplait responded to my email saying mailed coupons were on their way but I am still patiently checking my mailbox.

But my favorite of all was from Five Hour Energy – they sent me a package with 6 Five Hour Energy! When I opened it, I squealed like I won the lottery and my husband thought I was nutty! :D

I plan on continuing to send out emails to see what responses I can get next!
