Reader Coupon for Compliments | Julie’s Mailbox Score

Download

Over the last few weeks I have posted my efforts to write to companies to seek product coupons in response to giving them feedback. Some of you have taken the challenge as well – with positive results!

Julie is just one of several that continue to keep me updated on your progress – check out her mail from today – she was very fortunate!  I also scored coupons today too – but my kids are playing with my phone so pictures will come tomorrow.

How are you doing? I went to check my mailbox today and I received responses from 8 companies!   8 out of 20 in 2 weeks, is not too bad in my opinion! Thank you for the motivation! I get so excited to see your weekly post!

Coupons for Compliments | Reaching out to 5 Companies Per Day (Week 6)

NewImage

A few weeks ago, I started a series “Coupons for Compliments” – for 8 weeks, I will be writing to 5 (FIVE) Companies each day to give them feedback about their product.  This is week six for us.

I did this to encourage some of you to start writing…my intent was to capture savings on items I regularly buy, but also let them know what I particularly like about their product. Although I don’t expect coupons in return, getting them is definitely a nice bonus – some companies are more generous than others.

Over the last week I have noticed that many of you have given it a try – some of you have mentioned that you emailed 1, 2, or even up to 14 companies and received only one response, or no response, and that you were giving up. Don’t give up……. keep trying. 

Most companies I have emailed have not responded; those who have, did so 1-2 weeks after my contact. I contacted Maranatha a few weeks ago and just this week scored coupons – so there is a time gap!

Katie let me know by email today that she had a positive response when she contacted GoGo squeeZ:

Hi! I wanted to thank you for recommending to write companies. Last week I wrote a couple and one was GoGo Squeez. I just thanked them for making a product that my son loves and they sent me 3 coupons for FREE packs!  Amazing.

Remember that not every company will respond; that does not mean you should give up – all good things take time and effort.. don’t expect great rewards to happen immediately.

You can see my post from last week HERE.

This week’s results weren’t quite as grand as last week, but I’m grateful for the savings – any savings is important to me.  Here’s what I scored:

  • 2 FREE Mariani Products up to $4.99
  • 3 – $1/1 Challenge Butter
  • 1 – $.75/1 Challenge cream Cheese
  • 2 – $1 off Maranatha Products
  • 1 – $.50/1 Boulder Canyon Product
  • 4 – $.55/1 Reser’s Products
  • 2 – $2/1 Quaker Products (not shown – already used)

I will admit this week was difficult for me to write; I found myself up until 2-3 a.m. Monday and Tuesday working on the grocery ads so I did not write to any companies.  Wednesday I wrote to 2 companies before finding myself peeled over my screen at 3:30 a.m., and last night I stayed up very late to type the Fry’s Mega Sale list and found myself up with the kids (they had early naps so they woke up middle of the night) at 3:30 a.m. eating Quesadillas in our kitchen.   So I have some catching up to do this weekend!

Want to give it a try? You can can use this spreadsheet here… it’s doesn’t hold all companies but it’s a great start. Use their website to find the CONTACT form….. always include your address.

Tell them why you like their product, usually 2-3 sentences is sufficient.

Coupons for Compliments | Reaching out to 5 Companies Per Day (Week 4)

NewImage

A few weeks ago, I started a series “Coupons for Compliments” – for 8 weeks, I will be writing to 5 (FIVE) Companies each day to give them feedback about their product.  This is week four.

I did this to encourage some of you to start writing…my intent was to capture savings on items I regularly buy, but also let them know what I particularly like about their product – not all companies respond.  Some may just respond with an email “Thanks!” – some, on the other hand, will send coupons for future savings. And some won’t respond at all. You can’t get discouraged!

You can see my post from last week HERE.

This week’s mail had the following:

  • (4) $0.35/1 ANY Sun Maid Product

  • (4) $1/1 ANY Bolthouse Farms Juice or Smoothie (not pictured because I used at Safeway this week!)
  • AND (4) $0.55/1 Plum Organics (not shown – I used them at Safeway & paid $.25 for pouches!)

I thought it was a great week!  I was excited! Even more, I wrote to so many last week that I had such a great response – many of the companies I emailed last week DID respond … not immediately but 2-3 days after my contact email and had intent to send coupons too. So next week might be even better!

Coupons for Compliments | Reaching out to 5 Companies Per Day (Week 2)

NewImage

Last week I let you know I started a series “Coupons for Compliments” – for 8 weeks, I will be writing to 5 (FIVE) Companies Daily to let them know I love their product.

That is, indeed, quite a lot of items. Lots of brainstorming went into this – and I have been very consistent with writing – each day. Every night, I snuggle up with my laptop IN bed (even if it is at 1 a.m.) and before I close the lid on the computer, I write to FIVE companies – it is very easy, and my compliments are 2-3 sentences “Hi! We LOVE your cookies!” — or, “My kids love your milk —- we purchase it regularly, thanks for carrying it at my local Fry’s store!”

To inspire you to reach out & start contacting companies again, I am sharing my results with you in hopes that it inspires you to do the same.
