Manufacturer Coupon Contact List

Most of us know that one of the best ways to obtain coupons is to go directly to the manufacturer and simply ask. But how many of us have actually done so? Give yourself a pat on the back if you have, but the vast majority have not. Why? It’s a great concept, but it takes time, and who has any of that lying around, right?

It’s one of those things that looks good on paper, but where do you start? Who do you call? Where do you get the number? What do you say? How do you remember who you’ve called and not? If you decide to email, same thing… you have to search online for the contact information, type up an email, wait for response… All well and good, but many companies aren’t offering coupons by mail anymore, so you’ve wasted that time. Is it even worthwhile?

It is now! You’ve just found the most comprehensive manufacturer contact list on the ‘net! Why can I boast such a claim? Others have posted lists with one or two of the following items, but I have put together a spreadsheet that contains all of the following:

  • Company name
  • Parent company (so you’re not repeating calls to the same company without realizing)
  • “Contact Us” direct link
  • Direct link to printable coupon, if such exists
  • Customer service phone number
  • Company’s response to coupon requests
  • A handy red/yellow/green light for each – An at-a-glance notice of whether the company currently offers coupons via mail
  • A column for you to record the date you contact a company, should you choose to do so

This is all in an effort to save you valuable time – so your requests are spent on companies that are currently more than happy to fulfill them.

To be fair, please note a few items:

  • The information contained on this spreadsheet is purely based on my own experience with these companies (with a few items input from my couponing friends).  Of course, I am not guaranteeing the same results.
  • My approach was consistent – I simply called each company (all recent requests, since Sept 2011) and politely asked if they offered coupons via mail to consumers.
  • It is not uncommon to receive coupons under different circumstances, such as for criticism or praise of a company’s products.  However, I felt that in order to fairly represent the purpose of this spreadsheet to the general public I should clarify that the red/yellow/green signification indicates the company’s response to a simple coupon request – no other circumstance necessary.

Although I have worked diligently on this for over 2 weeks, I am quite certain that there will be brands that I have missed so I invite you to leave a comment if you’d like to see one added in and I will be happy to research.  Feel free to share your own experience in a comment as well – the one thing I have learned with contacting mfr’s is that it seems nothing is consistent.

This will be a constantly-evolving work, as company information changes and is updated. The download is free, so download as often as you wish. There were even a handful of companies that I didn’t get to before posting, but I really wanted to make this available before starting another work week. I will update those within the next few days as well.

Leave a comment sharing your experience and what kinds of goodies you get in the mail! Hope everyone enjoys!

    Hi there, I am wondering if I can access this program in any other form? I am not able to see this with the software used. Please let me know when you can..Thanks so much

      Teresa -
      For now it is in Excel only, but i will try to make it available in Word format within the next few days. It may not look quite as “neat”, but hopefully help users without Excel to be able to utilize it.

    Hey working mom! Just upload the excel spreadsheet into google docs and then provide that link for your readers. Much less work and it will look a lot better than a word doc. ;)

    This wonderful resource was just pointed out to me! I have a bargain blog in Arizona and was wondering what your thoughts were on sharing it there. Can I provide a link to your link, also linking to you and giving you credit.

    I can tell an incredible amount of time went into this and I want to honor your wishes.

    Thanks so much. I plan on looking at it more closely and making some calls soon. Great idea and wonderful resource!

    Of course – feel free to share the link, and thanks!

    What are you saying to the companies in order to get these coupons?

    • J. Kelly says:

      Short and sweet and whatever is the truth as it pertains to their brand, such as:
      “Our family regularly uses your product but we are frugal shoppers and I haven’t seen any coupons in the recent Sunday inserts. Do you have any available to send to consumers, or could you point me in the right direction to find coupons?”

      Or…
      “I’ve been wanting to try your product, but being a frugal shopper I was hoping you might have a coupon available…”

      Or simply…
      “I wonder if you might have any coupons available to send to consumers?”

      I tried to keep it somewhat consistent because, as I mentioned above, the purpose of this was obtain an honest consensus of companies that send coupons simply upon request. No product praise or complaint necessary.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with everyone. I will be starting down the list right away in the morning. I have contacted Bounce online and got 2 coupons and Heinz and recieved a couple from them as well for sending good praise about there product. This must have taken you a long time to put together and document. I appreciate it. You are AMAZING!
