One thing I often hear is “There are not any coupons for the products I use” and so often that may or may not be true. I tend to believe that there are coupons for almost everything you just have to know where to look and be willing to wait to find them. For example I have posted coupons in the past for Eggs, Bread, Milk, Pineapple, Lettuce, Seasonings, Flour and so much more. The problem is these aren’t always available when you might need to purchase these products.

Another great way to get additional coupons would be to contact the companies of the products you love. Often companies will take the time to “thank” you for providing them with valuable information by sending you a few coupons for those products. I’ve done this several times in the past when I genuinely had something to say to a company and It really doesn’t take long. (Keep in mind, I really think genuine comments are best here, if you’re going to take the time to email a company try to provide valuable insight into why you use their product)

Kristin over at Couponing to Disney has a great list she calls “5 a day” that lists 5 companies to contact each day. This is a great resource for companies contact information and it’s also a great reminder of everyday products you might already be using. You can see her complete list here.

Here are the 5 companies she posted yesterday:

  1. Pom
  2. Popchips
  3. Reynolds Wrap
  4. Shout
  5. Starbucks Icecream

Kristin also does a great job of tracking the results. You can see the results of each email she’s sent here.

You might also try emailing companies of products you would like to try. I did this recently, my daughter is just starting to eat baby foods so I contacted several companies of products I would like to try but don’t have coupons for. I just simply let them know my daughter was starting to eat solid foods and I was wondering if they had any coupons available or an email list that I might be able to sign up for. Most companies want you to try their products and they are very willing to send you coupons to help you try them out. Once again look for products you know you would use or love.

I would love to know: Have you had any luck emailing companies for coupons in the past? If so let us know.
