    followed advice on here and have received a £2 off coupon for mccains after complementing them on their products via email. Nestles just sent a well worded reply!

    Just compliment them, and ask them if it might be possible for them to send you something to help with your wedding.

    Any recent tips anyone ?
  • Hii guys this only kinda works if you live somewhere not so close to a big shopping town etc etc but I always save the magazine pages of things I like (most recent one was a bag) then when then when they don't put the item you want on their website and obviously, your local store doesn't have it in stock (or you don't have a local store so can't get it) then write them a letter WITH the magazine page saying you would like an some kind of explanation as to why it was never put on their website when it was advertised and that you're upset cos you really wanted the item, stress that you have checked your local store if you have one and checked the website regularly usually they'll send you the thing you want for free (don't leave it too long though because they might stop selling what you want, but remember magazines get things sometimes months before they are in shops, so leave it a while) I've done this a few times, generally cos it really annoys me when things are advertised in magazines and they never actually sell them anywhere acsessable to me. Sorry if this is a bit confusing but it works lol :) Sorry kinda obvious but I forgot to add - you write directly to the company not the magazine, like if it was a bag from new look, write to new look. And always remember letter not e-mail, companies hardly ever send things in response to e-mails.

    I e-mailed Tigi telling them I was apprehensive about spending so much money on products I have never used and they have posted some free samples for me :)
    Nestle said no, as did Thorntons.
