Did you know that if you take the time to contact your favorite companies and request a coupon a lot of times they will come through on your request? Its true! Most corporations will respond to your emails or letters with a response and sometimes a coupon for money off or even a free product! The first step is to think of your favorite brands, especially the ones that you don't seem to see coupons or offers for very often. Go to their website and find their contact information. Email or regular mail would be best. Make sure and express your satisfaction with their product and touch on all the reasons why you like them more than the "other guy". Also include your dissatisfaction for their lack of coupons or promotions. Let them know that you prefer to shop for products that offer coupons and that you have noticed that they don't seem to offer printed or newspaper coupons. Explain to them that you do like to be loyal to the companies and brands you love most but it makes it hard when their competition is pushing coupons and offers in every area possible. It might not work 100% of the time but it is always worth a try. Companies do appreciate ideas, reviews and advice and will reward you when they can. Here's hoping this will help you score some good deals down the road! Let me know if you have any success!
