Free Coupons in your Mail

I have never really been into clipping coupons until I started reading about it through all of the ingenious women whose blogs I follow. I have read on how so many of them have drastically cut down on their grocery bills through the science that is couponing. Of course, who wouldn't want to save money here and there.I know I do!

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.



Needless to say, I'm little by little becoming addicted to the idea of saving money through the calculated use of coupons.

Have you ever written to companies asking for discount coupons?  How was the experience?  What companies did you write to?

  2. Hey! I don't mind at all! I am flattered, actually, and glad I am reaching out to others! I am working on my stack of coupons currently and trying to get them into my binder today, while blogging, etc! I am waiting a little while longer before I start to "re-write" some of my companies to see if they will send more coupons!!! I don't think I ever go shopping now without using some coupon on the transaction. I love it! By the way, I was able to score free McCormick seasoning with one or two of those coupons!

  4. I just wrote to Frito Lay about their BBQ Doritos telling them how much I liked the limited edition flavor. They sent me 2 $0.55 coupons.
