CouponKat inspired me to start a coupon writing campaign. I’ve done this off and on in the past with pretty good results. This time I’ll keep track of the companies that I write so that you can see my progress. Maybe I’ll inspire you to do a little writing yourself!
What is coupon writing campaign?
I’ll be writing (actually emailing) companies that manufacturer products and foods that our family uses. The emails will be compliments and might include future product suggestions. I don’t anticipate having to send any complaints, but if an issue arises with a product I purchase I’ll go ahead and write the company to let them know.
Companies like to get feedback. Positive or negative. The feedback lets them know they are doing something right; or if they need to make some changes with their products. What do I get out of it? Well…companies also like to say thanks to their customers and will send out high dollar coupons in return. Sometimes the coupons won’t have expiration dates or even better, they will be for completely FREE products. All of my compliments or complaints will be completely honest.
That sounds pretty time intensive.
It’s not. Most companies have a contact form on their website that’s pretty easy to fill out. I’ll try to email just one company a day during the week, time permitting.
Here’s what I’ve done so far and the response I’ve gotten. The dates in parenthesis are the dates that I emailed the company.
I was able to get a FREE bag of pretzels with the coupon from Snyder’s!
Snyder’s (3/3) Received a coupon for ANY Snyder’s Product FREE
Dannon (3/5) Received ten coupons for .50 off any Dannon yogurt
SC Johnson- Ziploc snack bags (3/7)
Prego Sauce (3/9)
Give it a try! Think of a company that makes a product you love. Have you told them that lately? Go ahead, it doesn’t hurt to give it a shot!
