Need Coupons? Call the Manufacturer Directly...you might be pleasantly surprised

I have been using coupons for over 2 years now and it really bothered me when I started to buy new items due to Brody's food allergies that these items rarely go on sale and coupons are not easily accessible (example: in the newspaper inserts). I did a little bit more research and decided to call the companies of the items I was wanting to try/buy.

I was happy with the outcome. You can do this with any item that your family uses, but do not get coupons for. Call the company and tell them how much your family enjoys the product or that you would love to try the item but the cost has been prohibiting you from doing so and then ask if they have coupons that they could send you. Most likely, they will be happy to.
*OR, if you don't feel like calling, drop the company an email and request some coupons. Hope this helps!

  1. Hey Rachel! I love your blog! I am interested in your allergen-free recipes, so I'll be back. Also, I just started couponing a few weeks ago, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for Brody-safe coupons!

  2. Rachel,

    I am so amazed by your wealth of knowledge on this already. We were supposed to be helping each other but so far you have been a total help to me and I am not really returning the favor! I need to get on the ball! THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to put this on your blog and share it with us!
