I email companies of products that my family and I use/eat and make complaints and I always get coupons for free products that way. Before you go telling me that I can compliment the company to get free product coupons, I have tried that tons of times. Nine times out of ten I just got coupons for a few cents off or no coupons at all. Today alone I got free product coupons for a free Venus with refills razor, Olay face products, shampoo coupons, Swiffer Sweeper, Lysol cleaning wipes, Stouffers lasagna, Coles garlic bread, Honey Nut Cheerios....I have a bunch more coming. I've not had to buy shampoo, body wash, razors, cleaning supplies and certain foods that we enjoy for a while. Of course, I still have to buy food but it's nice to have a lot of free product coupons to hand to the cashier!

I complain if I actually have an issue but I don't think it's right to do that just to get free stuff.

If I have real compliant I email the company because they won't know if no one tells them.  I also email them if I really like a product.

In vain he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.

A friend of mine used to complain to resturants after eating there to get a free gift card to go again. I thought it was tacky.

I only complain when I have a real complaint.

In school we had to do that as part of some lesson or project...we picked a product we liked and wrote a letter telling them how we felt about the product.

I wrote about skittles and got a coupon for a free bag...I was like 11 or 12 so I thought it was awesome! lol
