One way to get great coupons is by contacting manufacturers. Send them an email or give them a call with a compliment or a complaint and often they will reward your time by sending you coupons – sometimes even for FREE products. I have been doing this lately with products I have found to be really good or products I have had a problem with and have found it really works. Most companies are ecstatic just to hear from customers. So, if you have any issue with a product, don’t hesitate to call or email the company to let them know and on the flip, if you love a product, let them know that too. Then watch your mailbox!
I have found a great blog dedicated to this task. Karissa over at Confessions of a Couponaholic picks one type of product daily and emails several makers of those products with comments. She records what she says and then also lets you know what she receives in the mail. I have been having a great time following her and it has motivated me to start contacting manufacturers more often. Go HERE to check out her blog.
Let me know what great deals you get from your contacts. So far I have found that Kashi, Gerber, Seventh Generation, and Colgate are good ones to contact.
