Updated 14 Jun 2019 196.4k views14 items

A customer's experience can tell a company a lot about a certain product's effectiveness or usability. Because of this, most businesses hold considerable stock in what their customers have to say, and there are countless companies that respond to customer complaints in maybe the best way of all: by sending you free stuff. And who doesn't love free stuff?

If you're curious how to get free stuff from companies, the process is pretty simple and straightforward. Make a phone call, send an email, or write a snail-mail letter (yup, people still do that!) to the product's manufacturer and explain your experience. Remember: you can complain without being disrespectful or unkind. In fact, companies often prefer constructive criticism where there is room for discussion over trying to communicate with an irate and volatile customer. Chances are good that the company wants to keep your business, and in order to do that, they may just send you some nice free sh*t!

Keep reading for a small sampling of companies that will send you free stuff if you only just nudge them a little.
