Remember the post I did on emailing companies to score coupons and freebies? Well if not, you’ll definitely want to check out the post here— and make sure to read through the comments for even more great tips!
I challenged you all in the previous post to set aside time each day to email a few companies. Well, I’m happy to report that it seems like lots of you are doing just that! I’ve gotten so many emails from readers excited about the FREE coupons and samples they’ve received in the mail! What did they do to get these? Just emailed a company and gave them a compliment or two about a product or products they like and some readers even emailed companies letting them know why they didn’t like a product. There is nothing wrong with emailing companies to try and score some free coupons or even free products. Just be honest in your emails. That’s it!
Mary, a reader, emailed tonight and was very pleased with what she found in her mailbox today (pictured above):
“I have been emailing a few of my favorite companies every week since you posted about doing so and today in my mail I got this wonderful surprise from Splenda! I told them how much I love using the Splenda in my coffee EVERY morning and complimented them on their web site (splendid life) and how I always love the goodies that are on there. They sent me a package today with the following-
-$3 coupon off any Splenda product
-Coupon booklet with $24 in savings for companies like Listerine, Tylenol, Rolaids, Splenda, Lactaid, Benedryl, EPT, etc.
-Recipe for Pineapple Yogurt Dip
-Helpful Hints and Tips booklet with Sweet Cheat sheet (shows sugar to Splenda conversions,etc)
-5 samples of Lactaid FastAct
-Koolaid/Splenda yellow stirring spool
I also received this week a coupon for a free 32 oz. bottle of Coffee-mate creamer by telling them how much I love their creamers every day in my coffee and look forward to all the holiday flavors that are available!”
Here are a few other reader emails and comments I’ve received below! I hope they serve as some great inspiration and motivation for you!
“Hey Hip! I just wanted to share with you my success in writing to companies about their products! I wrote to Huggies and told them that I wasn’t really happy with their diapers. When I used them they leaked too much. I’m a pampers girl, but they sent me a $6, $3 and two $1 coupons to try their product again! Plus, I got about 10 other companies that sent me coupons… it does pay off! Woohoo!”
“I emailed Wise Chips just to let them know how much my kiddos and hubby love their chips! Within 2 days they emailed me 3 high value coupons! I was so excited! Thanks again!”
“I emailed Draino (with all our pets our drains get clogged often and Draino is our staple!) and Sally Hansen (love those nail art pens!) last week and got a free product coupon from Draino in addition to a coupon book… And 2 coupons each for $5, $3, & $1 from Sally Hansen! I never thought anyone actually read those things, but someone really does! :)”
Are you motivated?… maybe a little?;)
