One of the best parts about couponing is that I get to try a variety of new products. Some products are not that great, but then there are others that are awesome and have become my favorite brands. For those products, I decided to contact their manufacturers and let them know how much I enjoyed their items.
I chose 10 manufacturers to contact. Along with providing each manufacturer with positive feedback, I also requested any manufacturer coupons they may have available for their most loyal customers. And I must say, I was very impressed with my results!
Overall, the response was always positive and in some instances I was provided a coupon. Ten out of the ten companies I emailed responded, and I received coupons from seven. Emailing them only took me about 20 minutes, and in exchange, I got stacks of savings!

What to include in your emails

Include the following when corresponding with a manufacturer regarding their products. In the emails in which I did not request a coupon, I only received a message thanking me for using their product—so be specific in your review and in your request! Here are three pieces of information you should definitely always include:

  • Product name
  • Product review
  • Request for any available coupons

7 Companies to contact for coupons

Here are my findings. I hope they inspire you to contact these manufacturers for more savings!

1. Silk Almondmilk: The form I filled out required me to input the UPC code for the milk product I purchased. I received a $1 coupon in the mail and was informed that the offer was limited to 1 coupon per person, per year.

2. Luzianne Tea: I asked for samples but didn’t receive any. I did, however, receive (1) $0.50 manufacturer coupon for Luzianne Tea and a very nice letter about how to make tea!

3. Nature Made Vitamins: The Web site featured a coupon link with (4) $1 coupons! Score! I had to set up an account in order to print them, and I also signed up for the newsletter.

4. Jif To Go: Jif has a great Web site with lots of information, especially for kids. There was not a visible coupon link available, so I clicked the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the page, sent an email regarding Jif To Go, and requested coupons and samples. I also signed up for the newsletter. I received (2) $0.35 coupons for any Jif product.

5. Stouffer’s: I signed up for their Dinner Club which offers exclusive coupons and Stouffer’s information. I also clicked on “Contact Us” and sent them an email praising their lasagna and requesting any available coupons. To my delight, I received a response in three hours asking permission to post some of my comments on their Facebook page. They also notified me that I would be receiving coupons in the mail in 7-10 days! Here’s what I got: (1) $0.55 coupon for one Stouffer’s Entrée, (1) $1.00 coupon for a Stouffer’s family size meal, and (1) $1.50 coupon for a large family size or party size Stouffer’s meal.

6. Butterball: I emailed Butterball regarding their wonderful turkey bacon. I received a recipe book in the mail! I was also told that coupons are frequently released and to look for them in my community.

7. U by Kotex: I sent an email to the company, signed up for a free sample, and received a $1 coupon via email today after getting a sample in the mail.

Contacting manufacturers has been an eye-opening experience for me. I signed up for newsletters from these companies for additional information regarding their products and for coupons in the future. The outcome was a great investment of my time! Twenty minutes for $10 in coupons and some valuable information about my favorite brands!
