"Money" in the mail?

Feed(s): 

I like to use coupons, but I haven't done it consistently lately.  Still, I'd like to save more on more items at the grocery store.  How about you?

Coupons are available in the newspaper and online -- even here from the Froggy website!  But what if you could get more savings on stuff you really like?  Try writing the manufacturer of your family's favorites.  Tell them how much you enjoy their products and you might get coupons in the mail... or your inbox!  You might even get actual products sent to you.  If you write your note via email, it won't cost you anything but a few minutes of your time!

I haven't tried this in a while, but I know it works.  I wrote a company because I was having problems locating their product in our area, and they sent me a package of the item I was looking for.  Not all companies will respond, but it may be worth your time.  What you spent an hour writing emails and ended up getting $25 in coupons?  That's money you don't have to spend and don't have to pay taxes on!

I'm going to spend some time doing this in the coming weeks and I'll let you know what happens.  Want more details about writing away for coupons?  Click here!
