Works for Me Wednesday- Free coupons! September 4, 2007

Filed under: Works for me Wednesdays — thediaperdiaries @ 10:06 pm

wfmwheader_163.jpg It’s a special Works For Me Wednesday over at Rocks in My Dryer(kind of like a special “Blossom” without the brilliant writing and major morality lesson…ok so it’s nothing like that).

Anyway, if you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that every Thursday, I post about products I love. You can read those here. So you will have to return tomorrow for more of my product picks. I know what you are thinking, “How can I possibly wait a whole 24 hours for more of her wisdom?” I know, dear reader, but you must.

So, I will instead give you some advice I have gleaned from my Thursday posts. When you love a product, let the company know. Often times, they will send you coupons for the stuff you love, sometimes for free products. I simply go to the companies website and find their contact information. I then craft an email stating that I love their product and would love some coupons. 90% of the time, they send me some and I get more of what I love and save some money in the process.

 That is what works for me. For more great product ideas, check out Rocks in My Dryer.

    I’ll have to try that. I was just googling coupons today and they are scattered every where and some places want your first born in exchange for a coupon for 25 cents off.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This is a great tip! I’ve heard about people getting coupons and free product sample but haven’t tried it out myself. i’m a big fan of online shopping and researching so your tip works perfectly.

    Great idea! I’m with Jodi on the follow-through! It probably doesn’t take much longer to email the company than to fill out your personal info to print (and suck the life out of your ink cartridge) a cents-off coupon from their website.

  8. My momma raised me to always write as my compliment letters as complaint letters! LOL I admit I’m behind on the positive side of this! LOL I’ll have to try it! *wink*

    That’s a great idea. Thanks for the tip. I never thought about contacting companies directly. I’m definetly going to give this a try.
