Emailing Companies to Get FREE Coupons!

Kristen over at Couponing To Disney has spent the past 3 months emailing 5 different companies a day complimenting them on their products--with hopes of getting some coupons in return! She has now emailed a total of 250 companies and from those 250 emails, she has received coupons from 29 companies... and counting!

Here's a list of the 29 companies:

What a great way to build up your stash of coupons and even better, for products you actually like and use! I would suggest, just like Kristin did, to set aside time each day to email a few companies... maybe 2 or even 10. If you email a few companies everyday for a year, just imagine all the coupons you'll be receiving on a regular basis! Pretty motivating, huh? I think I may have to email a few companies right now!

**If you need more ideas for companies to email, then make sure to check out this post over at Couponing To Disney. If you scroll down a little, you'll see a long alphabetical list of the 250 companies she emailed! You can also check out her post here where she discusses why it's a great idea to start doing this and how to personalize your emails for each company you decide to write.
