Email pays off!

After being inspired by Couponing to Disney I made a list of some of the products we use that I love.  Then I sent emails to the companies praising their products but NOT asking for coupons.  I received an envelope full of coupons from Dial last week and today I received a booklet of coupons from SC Johnson because I wrote to Glade about their Spring candles.  LOTS of good ones too!   So if you’re looking to build your stash of coupons I highly suggest writing to some of the companies whose products you use on a regular basis.  I mean look- one email made me almost $20!  More than that actually because our grocery stores double up to 98 cents.  Word.  Oh, and if you’re thinking “OMG I don’t have time to write a million emails”…don’t!  Just write one.  Then save it somewhere, copy and paste, and change some details.  Basically here’s what I wrote to Glade:  ” Hi!  I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I enjoy the Spring Sparkle  Glade candles.  The lime scent is so fresh and clean smelling!  My husband, who normally doesn’t care what kind of candles I burn, even loves these and has remarked how good the house smells.  I know the Spring Sparkle is a seasonal scent but please consider making it part of your permanent line.  Thank you for making such a quality product at an affordable price!  Sincerely, Shanny & CSP”.   That’s it.  Like 4 sentences.  Took 2 minutes tops.  Made almost $10 a minute!
