Default Companies That Send Coupons

I thought this might help us all. I try to e-mail a few companies each week asking for coupons. I tell them that I like their product and ask for coupons or to be on their coupon list. What companies have you e-mailed and gotten results from?

Companies that I've gotten coupons from:

Playtex - I got three FREE product coupons!
Florida Crystals sugar- FREE product coupon and three 35 cent coupons
Eggland's Best Eggs - 50 cent coupon
Del Monte - three 50 cent coupons
Kotex - two 75 cents off coupons
Huggies (also a Kimberly Clark company) - three 50 cents off coupons
From Kimberly Clark I got two 50 cents off coupons for any product
Scrubbing Bubbles scrubber - complaint and got a FREE product coupon
Colgate - got coupons for several of their products from 50 cents to $1 off

I didn't get anything from Proctor and Gamble or Dwight and Church (make Arm and Hammer and other products). Each told me to look in the paper for coupons.

I have complained to Glad for some defected baggies I got, got a free product coupon. Also, complained to Banquet for a meal I "ate", got a free product coupon. Not that I just complain for coupons, I really had problems with the products.

I e-mailed Colgate about the 1.50 off coupon from Aetna, and got an envelope in the mail today for like 1 coupon each for almost every product they make! I will put a listing of what they sent tomorrow.

I emailed The Hain Celestial Group ("aka Queen Helene") and told them how much I liked their cocoa butter lotion ... they sent me four .50 off coupons. I have been using that lotion since I was a teen, I love it ... if you've never tried it, try it! It's inexpensive (a little over $2 for a huge bottle) but works great on dry skin, and its not greasy!

I emailed Wonderbread and told them how much my hubby likes their Light Wheat Bread ... thats the only wheat bread he likes ... they sent me a free product coupon.

I emailed Glade (SC Johnson, yep) and told them how much I liked the scent of their candles, they sent me a coupon for a free candle.

I usually send letters/e-mails of praise on their products.

Recently I wrote an e-mail to Pledge about their multi-surface wipes, they sent me a whole coupon book.

In the past I've gotten great coupons from writting a nice letter to Kleenex.

A few kind words and sometimes I exagerate a bit and tell the company how life changing their product is.

I emailed SC Johnson yesterday about some of their products, on how well i liked them (because of LOVE THEM) and they are sending me a booklet of coupons. I'm excited to see what they are going to send me.

I e-mailed Merricks Dog Food regarding coupons... at first they asked me to check locally for a package of their treats that had coupons inside. I checked - emailed them back to let them know our local stores didn't sell that particular Merricks treat. Since then they have e-mailed me printable coupons. They have a date/promo code/and your name. So I NEVER print more than one of the coupons -- I want to keep getting them... See once I use the coupon, within days I have another one in my in box. So if ya don't abuse it, they keep sending your coupons. Sometimes it's BOGO on their can food, or BOGO on their 5 lb bags, or a coupon for their treats. It is alway something I can use... Merricks is made in the USA. http://www.merrickpetcare.com/

I have also e-mailed Innova Dog Food and they mailed me two coupons... one for $5.00 off and one for $3.00 off. Again, Innova is made in the USA and is a 6 star dog food!! http://www.naturapet.com/brands/innova.asp

I've complained to a few companies too with good results. I tried a Wanchai dinner kit and it was awful. General Mills sent me a $5.00 check, a coupon for a free kit, and another $1 off any item coupon.

Tyson refunded my cost for some low quality chicken I e-mailed them about. They sent me a postage paid mailer to mail the bag to them then sent me the check.

There are several companies I've e-mailed with no response.

Ocean Spray and Juicy Juice don't send coupons.

I've gotten lots of great coupons from Gerber though.

I complained about a problem with two boxes of Pampers and the company sent me four coupons for $10.00 off a jumbo pack. I used the coupons when the Pampers were on sale at CVS for $9.99. I'll be giving them as gifts since DD doesn't use them now.

I emailed Pillsbury to tell them how much we love the Strawberry Toaster Strudels, and they sent a coupon for a free box up to $4.50 (I got the jumbo family size!), and a coupon for $1 off any product.

I requested Q's from Arm & Hammer, they said they don't do coupons (even though you can find printables on the net).
