Want to get free coupons? Here's how!

For about 3 months now I've been emailing companies each week telling them one of three things: I love, hate or want to try their products. Of all the companies I've email, I have received some form of coupon from all but three and 9 times out of 10 the coupons are for FREE products! I think that 5 minutes of my time once a week is worth FREE stuff! Do you?

Today I received 2 coupons for FREE baby food from Nature's Goodness just because I emailed them to say Allyson loves their pumpkin and pear baby food.

Yeah she likes it a little bit!

Want to get more coupons for free?
What to do: All companies like to get feedback from their customers whether it is a complaint, compliment or comment. 9 times out of 10 these companies will take the time to send you coupons.
How to do it: E-Mail! Here are some basic tips on what to say.

1. Be specific! Tell each company why you like/dislike or you've never tried their
product and you want too.
2. Make it personal. Include how their product makes your life easier, how you use
it or that your kids love it.
3. Be polite and thank them for making the product and taking the time to read you
4. Don't lie! If you don't have a complaint, don't make one up! But if you do have
a legitimate complaint make sure you have the package handy! Companies always
want to know where the problem lies. For example I got a bad can of Campbells
soup about a month ago. I called and complained and they sent me 2 coupons for
$3 off ALL Campbells products. It was worth the call!

Here's a list of all the companies I've emailed:
