Contact Companies to Get Free Stuff

Contact Companies to Get Free Stuff

Did you know you can Contact Companies to Get Free Stuff?

It is a little known fact that compliments or complaints will get you amazing things from companies…they love to hear your feedback and use it to improve their products or services.

Simply use the “contact us” link on any of these websites and let them know what you like or dislike about their products. You will most likely receive coupons for either free items or cents off. I say “most likely” because this is not a guarantee, but I personally have had great success with doing this. This is where I get most of my Free coupons from.

Pick 10 or 15 and email them (use your junk email account) do this about every few days or so and you will be amazed at the response you will get. 20 minutes of time can easily turn into $50 worth of free stuff!

NOTE: Don’t just complain to get free stuff, that isn’t very nice.

If you know of any other great ones, please post a comment!

Want great deals and tips in your inbox?


  1. I’d like to add to please not abuse companies by lying about loving or hating the product just to get a free coupon. Like don’t say “oh I use this all the time” if you’ve never even tried it. You can still write in if you’ve never tried an item just be honest and say that you’ve never tried it and would love to, do they have any coupons or samples available 🙂

  2. I have had some success with Gillete as well. I had got a few samples from gillette and was asked to review products for them. Once I gave my review, I was rewarded with free P&G products (not sample/trial size, but full sized ones) and high value P&G coupons.

    • so you just email them saying i love or never tried your product and was wondering if u had samples i could try or what?

  3. there is a company based out of IL called country bob’s sauce. It is the most delicious sauce I have ever tasted!!! They sent me 15 free bottle coupons to share with my friends! It was such a treat!

  4. I just received an email Chombard telling me that they enjoyed reading my comments and were sending me a gift that they hoped I would enjoy. Went to the site on a whim because I hade been given a bottle of their Black Rasberry Liquer before Christmas. I used it in a recipe for salmon as well as enjoying a cocktail and just wanted to tell them I thought it was a great product~ Didn’t see them on hyour list so wanted to share! I will let you know what my gift is once I receive it!! 🙂

  5. cool thanks im a single mom of 2 year old girl and i LOVE gettin free samples check out sweet free
    thanks for the links can anyone send me any for toddler stuff thanks

  6. Amazing list, and very time consuming to share, you are very giving of your time. I have been doing this for many, many years. But I never combined it with couponing. I used to love the look of the cashier when she rang up my order and then I handed her a batch of free product coupons, of course they called over the manager because they had to approve the large dollar value, when they were done, I literally only had to pay tax. It was awesome when I lived in Delaware, it is a tax free state.

    Thank you for sharing.

  7. I complained to Victoria’s Secret about a bra that the threads were coming loose on after the first use. I told them that I was shocked because their company has such a high reputation and they sent me a coupon to get a free bra valued at $45 or less

  8. if you write a letter to clinique (telling them how you like their products) they send you 3 free sample items online they are valued at up to 53 dollars! also… have you sampled all of these?

  9. if you write a letter to clinique (telling them how you like their products) they send you 3 free sample items online they are valued at up to 53 dollars! also… have you sampled all of these?

  10. I wrote to “Who-Nu” cookies a few months back and received 2 coupons for free boxes of cookies, plus 2 or 3 coupons for 55cents off of a box…Then they recently sent me another coupon for a free box plus another 55cents off a box again, just because of the season change.

  11. Crayola will send kids back tons of art supplies for sending in a letter! I have not tried email, but I know they will send you stuff if you send in a letter.

  12. My friend wrote to Scunci (hair company, its a branch of Conair) saying how much she loved their products and they sent back huge boxes filled with like a hundred headbands!

  13. Add Red Bull to that list. I e-mailed them recently to tell them how much I love Red Bull and they sent me a free four pack.

  14. I recently contacted Huggies for an issue I was having with snug and dry they requested the lot number and are supposed to send me a gift card for the cost of the diapers.

    Also contacted Gerber cause a hair in the food they are sending coupons

  15. Don’t know if anyone is aware of this, but if you contact johnsinville they will send you some coupons within five days. Also you can contact them every 90 days and receive more coupons.

  16. I recently started writing to companies for free or discounted items and have received a pretty great turn out…Below I have listed companies I wrote to and what they sent me:

    Regal Cinemas – Sent me 2 free movie tickets good until 2099 for ANY movie (IMAX, 3D, or regular)
    EmergenC – Sent me 2 free packets of EmergenC and a $1 off coupon
    Clif Bars – Sent me 2 free bars
    Luna Bars – Sent me4 free bars and multiple $1 off coupons
    Tide – Sent me 1 free Tide pod
    Kings Hawaiin Rolls – Sent me a coupon for 1 FREE product up to $6.99 value
    Palmers – Sent me samples for several different types of lotion, 1 travel sized bottle of Men’s Cocoa Butter, and several $1-$2 off coupons for any of their products
    Starbucks – Credited my Gold Card $12 for a bad experience at a location I used to frequent
    Johnsonville – Sent me a $1 off coupon

  17. i recently just emailed the skittles company . hopefully i will be able to get free stuff 😉

    • Just wanted to add that the earrings are free ($20 value), but you have to pay shipping and handling of $4.99 and by requesting the earrings, you are signing up for an email subscription from their website.

  18. Gardernburgers do not keep a coupon list, but they do have coupons on their site. Just received an email today from them.

  19. Also its a good idea to go around your house and just contact the products you already use,so you can give upc #’s,ect.I contacted 5 hour energy and they had sent me 6 free bottles.I had also complained to Rave about their new formula hairspray(been using Rave for like 15 years now)and not only did they send me a free bottle but they are going back to their original formula in April because of the tons of complaints they had about the it pays to complain(only when its legit)I believe in coupon Karma so I keep it true!

  20. I just messaged Bertolli, as it is pretty much the only olive oil I use, and I love their Alfredo sauce, (I told them this, but I did not directly ask for anything!)
    I received an email from them telling me that if I want coupons then I need to check newspapers and magazines for cents-off coupons.
    Well, alright then!

  21. Okay, so I am loving the idea of contacting companies and giving them some feedback. It’s not something I do often, but after reading this I thought it would be a great opportunity to scan my cupboards and closets and think about the products my family and I really do enjoy using and let these companies know. If for nothing else, perhaps if they know that their consumers like their products, they will continue stocking our store shelves with them!
    So, I took the time to email 30 companies. I didn’t flat out ask for anything, but I typed a quick message to say “thank you” and let them know which products I like and why. In 3 days, (which I realize isn’t long), I’ve heard back from 10 of them. Of course they all said “Thank you”, and they appreciated my feedback. After that the responses varied. Some are on your list, but a few aren’t. So I will briefly go over the 10 who have gotten back to me:

    Bisquick: “It is our policy we do not give coupons out on request”
    **Is it just me, or does this seem like an odd policy?? and again, I didn’t request anything!**
    Act II Popcorn: “Please check circulars for coupons, as we have no promotions going on right now.”
    Beechnut: “Please enjoy the coupons we are sending you. You should receive them in 2-3 weeks”
    Bertolli: “Please check circulars for cents off coupons”
    Ball Park: “We currently have no coupons available right now. Please check newspapers and magazines”
    Apple & Eve: “Please enjoy the money saving coupons we are sending you in the mail”
    Colgate: form “thank you” message
    Olay: form “thank you” message
    Listerine: “we will be happy to send you any coupons and/or samples that are currently available”
    Western dressing: “Please check our site frequently for money saving coupons”

    So 3/10 companies who have replied so far have offered coupons and/or samples. I find it interesting that even though I didn’t mention that I wanted anything from them, 8/10 felt the need to mention coupons. I am going to continue to contact a few companies every day. This certainly has become an interesting experiment!

  22. If you email Nivea and request samples and coupons you will get quite a few coupons and bodywash, and lotion samples for both men and women if you also request for men’s samples. It’s a really great little supply!

  23. I have been doing this for years, and have found that so many other people have now started complimenting and complaining to companies that companies general response now is to let you know that they do not offer coupons which is a joke because if you happen to have a complaint then they have coupons to offer.

  24. If you contact GLAD, they will send you a 8.50 coupon, Energizer will send you a 10.00 coupon, Schick sent me a free razor and 14.50 in coupons, Hefty sent me a 13.00 coupon, Hidden Valley Ranch sent me a coupon for a free 16 oz bottle!

  25. Has anyone tried emailing their favorite restaurant or fast food place? I’m curious if they send coupons too.

  26. Thanks for the tip, I did not know this, I think I might try it, I really need to save with coupons with the holiday season around the corner!

  27. I called Johnson baby and baby magic and told them I was soon to b a new mom and was looking forward to trying their products . I asked if they had any coupons and both were extremely friendly. They sent me coupons in mail. Baby magic- one .50 coupon and Johnson baby – two $1 coupons

  28. Just got an email back from Coca-Cola who said no which is fine but they were fairly rude about it. I didn’t write a crappy 3 sentence email either, it was like a paragraph long.

  29. Huggies, Pampers, Aussie, Herbal Essences, Venus, and Dial all sent me coupons. Dial was a little difficult, but I eventually did get coupons from them. I emailed Meow Mix and they don’t send coupons, so don’t waste your time. I’ve put in emails to Downy, Hefty, Dole, and Expo Markers and I’m waiting on responses.

  30. I have been writing companies and couponing for a few years now, and it has saved me a lot of money. Last month I went on another company writing spree, and it has paid off big time. Southern Recipe sent me a box with 7 bags of pork rinds, Pepsi sent stickers, Turkey Hill sent about $10 in coupons, SCJohnson sent $17 worth of coupons, Propel sent me a water bottle with 10 flavor packets and $6 worth of coupons, Snyder’s of Hanover sent a free item coupon up to $4 value, Stash Tea sent me 4 free tea bag samples, Quaker sent a $6 coupon for use on multiple products at one time, and I’m waiting for other company goodies right now.

  31. I’m new at couponing. I lost everything trying to start over. Please help me learn to coupon. Thank you

  32. I have been contacting companies, surveying, and couponing for for several years now. I have weeded through alot of the “waste of time” sites and will gladly pass my lists on to anyone interested. There are too many to just start listing here so if you are truely interested I can be contacted via yahoo- lc98402 or facebook- lorrie mcgruder. List add *Proctor&Gamble *Starkist

  33. I emailed purina they sent two 17.00 value dog food coupons three times. Also nfl teams 49ers sent three different fan packets I requested. The chargers sent one. And team picture. Pennant. And The Saints sent stickers. Also got stickers from O neill sase.
