Last week, I was going through the archives of The Frugal Free Gal to found out how she had started on her couponing journey. I stumbled across a post on how she had received free coupons directly from the companies simply by e-mailing them through their contact pages.
I thought, why not do it. I e-mailed McCormick and The Skinny Cow last week and received letters along with some coupons yesterday (Saturday). When contacting the companies I made sure to tell me how much I enjoyed some specific products of theirs-which I do. Prior to sending the coupons, The Skinny Cow company, contacted me via e-mail to let me know that they would be sending out some coupons. McCormick didn't write back, but they did deliver.
|I received four (4) discount coupons from McCormick.|
|I received two(2) $0.50 discount coupons from The Skinny Cow valid for any of their products.|
Have you ever written to companies asking for discount coupons? How was the experience? What companies did you write to?
