It can be time-consuming and stressful when you are trying to save money. Often, you know what you should be doing, but sometimes, it’s hard to know exactly how to do it. If you know you should be using coupons, but are not sure how to get them, then this is the post for you. I’ll go over different ways to save money with coupons and how to ask for coupons.
How to ask for coupons
Have you noticed that many of the coupons that you find in the papers and printable coupons online are for products you don’t normally buy? I was getting very frustrated with this. I have found it’s especially hard to find coupons for healthy foods and green products.
I thought there has to be a way that I can save money when we are trying to eat a healthy diet and live a healthier life.
I decided to start asking for coupons.
I have gotten coupons by just asking the company who makes the product. If there are products you use often and like a lot, then tell the company that and most times they will send you coupons and/or samples. Sometimes they will even send coupons for a free product. Kashi is great about that.
If you aren’t sure where to start and want a list of companies from certain categories, head over to Amazon. You can start in the food and grocery category to get some ideas of food companies you can contact.
To start, go to the company website. Then, use the comment form, tell them how much you like the product, and that you would love to have some coupons.
What do you write when you are asking a company for coupons?
Fill out the form and I’ll email you the template I use.
Do Not Directly Ask for Coupons
Another thought on this topic from Hot Coupon World is to not directly ask for coupons. They recommend you compliment or make a suggested to the company. Then, be sure you leave your full address so that they can, and hopefully will send you some coupons.
How to find a list of companies that send out coupons and free products.
In order to save time, check out this master list of companies to contact for coupons. There is an alphabetical list of companies that will send out coupons. It includes a link to the company’s website.
I suggest you then start your own spreadsheet to keep track of which companies you have contacted for coupons, when you last contacted them, and what the results were.
Now that you know how to ask for coupons, would you like to know my secrets for saving money on Amazon?
