I love coupons.
Using coupons is a great way to save money on groceries. Hunting down coupons for my family’s favorite brands or the products I use regularly isn’t always easy, though.
Sunday newspapers pack oodles of coupons into their inserts, which is fabulous. Most of the time, I find I don’t actually use very many of them.
There’s just a lot of coupons in Sunday newspaper inserts for products I don’t buy, don’t need, or have no interest in trying. That doesn’t stop me from using coupons for most of the groceries I pick up.
So how do I get multiple high value coupons for the groceries and other stuff I actually buy?
My favorite way is to contact the companies who make the things I purchase all the time and ask nicely.
You might be surprised, but there are plenty of companies that mail coupons upon request. A lot of the companies I contact send me coupons in the mail for free. Or they’ll email printable coupons.
Contacting brands is simple and it works pretty well for getting coupons. But it does take some time.
The biggest time sink is figuring out how to get in touch with the manufacturers. You might Google the brand name or pull up their Wikipedia page, find their website or Facebook page, then locate their contact info, and shoot them an email. It’s a pain when you have more than a couple of companies you want to track down.
Well, you’re in luck! I made a handy list of companies you can contact for coupons. It’s a sortable table with over 200 brands listed. Scroll down or click this link to skip right to it:

When you’re ready to get free coupons in the mail, create a fresh email account. You’re going to be getting a lot of emails from the companies you reach out to, so a separate email address is better.
You also might want to subscribe to a company’s email newsletter or join their fan club for promos and incentives that interest you. Your new email address is perfect for that.
Also, only contact the companies whose products you use. When you start to get free coupons in the mail and you see printable coupons arriving in your inbox regularly, it’s tempting and sort of fun to try to get as many coupons as you can regardless of what they’re for. Just don’t do it.
If you end up with a bunch of coupons you’ll never use or buy things you wouldn’t normally buy just because you have a coupon, you’re wasting your time. And you’re not really saving money, which is the whole point of writing to companies for coupons in the first place.
Many companies both big and small are happy to send coupons in the mail or email print at home coupons to their fans and almost anyone who asks. Here are some examples from my list:
This is just a small sampling of companies who sent me free grocery coupons in the mail or by email. Here’s the whole list:
Some companies gently discourage you from emailing for coupons right on their Contact page.
Bigelow Tea has a very apologetic and genuine statement on their site about why they can’t give coupons or free samples to everyone who asks. Here’s what they have to say about sending coupons:
I don’t have Bigelow on my list, but after I read their Contact Us page, I dropped them a note just to let them know they’re awesome. I appreciate hard work plus their Earl Grey is pretty good.
Some companies will respond to your email by politely telling you to go look in the newspaper. You will probably get some version of this response:
“Thank you for your interest in our products! Unfortunately, we don’t have coupons available to send our consumers. Coupons can be found through newspapers, grocery store circulars and online. Please visit our Facebook page where you can find the latest news and offers.”
Others spell it out for you right on their contact page:
If your favorite brand flat out tells you they won’t be sending coupons, have a look at their Facebook page. They might offer printable coupons, giveaways, contests, or free samples. Examples:
I’ve included links to Facebook pages for the brands on my list whenever possible. Click this link to go straight to the list:
Some companies want you to subscribe to their email newsletter or join their fan club to get coupons. I think that’s fair enough if you really like a brand and use their products all the time.
Signup is free, you won’t be using your primary email address, and you can opt out at any time. You also get a coupon so there’s not too much downside. Some examples:
Fast Fixin’ offers a $1 coupon for joining their email list right on their home page:
Who knows? You may like getting recipes, promotions, and tips from your favorite brands.
There are a few different approaches you could take in writing to companies for free coupons. You can try some flattery, report a problem, offer some suggestions, or just come right out and ask.
Many companies will send coupons for compliments, complaints, or feedback of any kind. So any of those approaches could work. I have done them all.
I’ve been sugary sweet. I’ve fired off complaints. I once submitted a couple of ideas I thought would make a product better. I wasn’t really being helpful, of course. Some frustrating packaging caused a bout of wrap rage which I shared with the company in an email.
When I sent my angry emails and grumptacular feedback, I wasn’t actually trying to get free grocery coupons. I was not my best self when I hit the Send button either. Funny thing is, the brands I contacted were all gracious enough to offer coupons or other free stuff, even though they probably thought I was a lunatic.
I don’t suggest making a habit of trying to get coupons by letting your inner psycho out of the cage or by giving companies smug advice on fixing their problems. It might work, but nobody really likes helping a jerk, even if it’s their job. No need to ruin someone’s day just to save a dollar on mustard.
If you’re wondering how to request coupons, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with just being nice. As the saying goes, you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
I live in Georgia where we have long discussions on the best way to catch flies. Trust me when I tell you the honey vs vinegar thing is 100% true.
You also want to be specific. What is it about the product that you love? If it’s a family favorite or it makes your life easier, let the company know.
If you’re complaining, you can be polite and still get your point across. I have to remind myself of that often, but you’re probably more pleasant than I am.
For complaints, you’ll also want to have your package and your receipt handy as well. The company might ask for the UPC, a picture of the toenail you found in your soup, and where you bought it in case they have a production problem or a potential recall on their hands.
Here’s an example email asking for coupons I’ve sent to companies in the past:
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much my family enjoys [name of product]. My [family member] asks for it by name every time I go shopping.
[He|She] really loves the [product feature]! That came as quite a pleasant surprise since [he|she] is normally very picky about [type of product].
We’ve tried other brands and were very disappointed. I’m thrilled to have finally found something my [family member] adores so much that is also [affordable|healthy|easy to use].
Do you ever make coupons available for your products? We’re big [name of product] fans so if we could offset the cost even a little bit we’d love you even more.
[Your Mailing Address]
Simple as that. Getting free grocery coupons isn’t exactly rocket surgery. Tweak my example and make it your own.
Real people are going to read your email then hopefully send you some excellent high value coupons. Personalize the message and include details so it doesn’t look like a form letter. Real people hate form letters.
If you’d rather write to companies for coupons using actual paper and stamps instead, you can go to your target brand’s website, find their mailing address, and use my template as a sample letter. Again, take the time to make it look like you wrote it, not me.
Yes! You’ll get coupons in the mail, coupons sent to your inbox, and you might get free samples or other swag sent to you.
Skeptical that this works? That’s OK. My lovely mother in law was too when I started doing this a couple years ago.
Mom didn’t believe any company would ever take the time to respond, much less send coupons. “You crazy!” is what I think she said. So I took a picture of the first response and coupon I got back and sent it to her.
Here’s a little note I got from the nice folks at Pepperidge Farm a while back:
And here’s a high value coupon good for any of their products that came with it:
Seeing that made Mom a believer.
Mom is old school obviously. She prefers to get coupons by mail rather than getting printables off a website or through email. She used to send (hilarious) letters mostly, but now that she lives with us she’s starting to embrace checking out brand pages on Facebook or emailing companies to get coupons.
English is not Mom’s first language and she’s a bit of a technophobe, but if she can do it, you can too. Scroll down or click here for the list then get to typing!
I’ve linked the company home page, their contact page, and their Facebook page where possible. You can sort the table by company name or product category.
I made some judgement calls on categories for companies with multiple product lines or products that could technically fit in more than one category. They make sense to me.
Brands sometimes have coupons available on Facebook and respond pretty quickly to messages in my experience, even if they don’t post there every day. Take a look at what your favorite brands are doing on Facebook or try messaging them through their page if you don’t hear back after your initial contact or complaint. It can work pretty well:
You can go straight to a company’s Contact Us page and send them a note, but a lot of times you’ll get a reply directing you to their Promotions page to get coupons. If a company has a Coupons or Promotions page on their website, I linked that as well. You’ll sometimes find printable coupons on these pages as well as contests, giveaways, and free samples.
If there’s a newsletter signup page that promises a coupon or other free stuff in return, I linked it. Again, set up a separate email account for couponing.
Please keep in mind your mileage will definitely vary. Mom and I have had very different experiences contacting the same companies. So I can’t promise you’ll get coupons from every company you contact.
Company policies change all the time. Luck and timing likely play a part. It might depend on who sees your email or letter.
But it’s worth a shot.
Download the Ibotta app. Ibotta gives you cash back for your grocery purchases and more. You get cash straight to your PayPal account for buying the things you normally buy at supermarkets, restaurants, and all your favorite stores.
So here it is. I try my best to keep this list up to date, but if you find any dead links or know of any coupon friendly companies I’ve left out, please feel free to contact me. Happy couponing!
