Companies That Will Send You The Best Free Stuff If You Just Complain A Little

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

If you're curious about how to get freebies from companies, the process is pretty simple. Make a phone call, send an email, or write a snail mail letter (yup, people still do that!) to the manufacturer and explain your experience. Remember: You can complain without being disrespectful or unkind. In fact, companies prefer constructive criticism with room for discussion versus trying to communicate with an irate customer. Chances are good the company wants to keep your business, and to do that, it may just send you something gratis!

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