I mentioned my experiment in writing to companies last week, and hope you all found the time to send out a few requests of your own! I was feeling pretty successful last week and getting my mail this week has been a little bit extra fun. I received coupons for FREE Flintstones, FREE Texas Toast, and two $0.55/1 Fresh Express coupons that will pair nicely with sales this week! This is who I've been writing to this week:
- Green Giant (Betty Crocker): I opened a can of corn this week and it was almost 25% filled with soggy corn husk. I wrote to them letting them know I love their canned corn product but wanted to let them know about my recent disappointing experience. They said they'll be sending a FREE item coupon to replace my bad can. I don't suggest you write to them to complain if you haven't had a bad experience, but perhaps compliments will work in your favor? (Got 2 FREE item coupons worth up to $6!!)
- Quaker Oats (PepsiCo): I wrote in to let them know how much we love the Lower Sugar Maple flavor and asked for coupons (we can eat a ton of this stuff!). Response: they currently do not have coupons to send out, bummer!
- Eggland's Best Eggs: I wrote last week to ask for coupons and never heard back. This week I got a newsletter with a silly message at the bottom with a phone number to call and a code to mention so I could get a coupon. I don't know what the coupon is, but if you want to try your luck- call (800) 922-EGGS (3447) and mention code "THEBESTJUSTGOTBETTER". The coupon is supposed to be good so you can try their new eggs, so maybe we'll all get lucky with a free item or high value coupon?
How did you all fare last week? Get any exciting coupons or promising emails? I'd love to hear how things went for you!
