Compliments / Complaints

I received a coupon for a free jar of Progresso Sauce last week. Why? I attempted to print a $1 off coupon from their site and it failed. I emailed and asked them to send me that coupon and instead they sent me a coupon for a FREE sauce. I have always let companies know when I have been disappointed with a product and have received coupons and free items. 

Thanks to Couponing to Disney’s  5 A Day Mail Campaign I am no longer writing only with complaints, I am thanking and complimenting companies whose products I appreciate and enjoy. What an easy way to get some free products or great coupons! This week I began writing the companies of every product I used throughout the day via the Contact Us pages of their websites. After loading the dishwasher I wrote Cascade to thank them for making a great product. After eating my Yoplait yogurt I wrote to let them know how much I love their yogurt but how difficult it is to get all the yogurt out because of their packaging. After putting away my leftovers in Ziploc containers I wrote to thank them for helping me save money by keeping my food fresh and protecting my freezer meals from freezer burn.

Check out Couponing to Disney’s suggestions for contacting companies HERE and check out the spreadsheet of what her friend has received HERE

 Here’s my list of companies contacted so far:

  • Cascade (compliment)

  • Chex Mix (compliment & suggestion)

  • Starbucks (complaint)

  • Yoplait (compliment & complaint)

  • Ziploc (compliment)- promise of coupon for free Ziploc vacuum pump system
