The first step to receiving free things in the mail is to think of the most recent unpleasant experience you had with a company. What you are going to do is contact that company's headquarters and explain to them what happened. Companies need to know how their customers feel.

Next you will need to look at another product by the same company to obtain an 800 number to call or an address to write to.

Don't be afraid to tell them how the bad experience affected you. For instance, "I only had $1.50 on me and after the machine ate the money, I had no money or drink."
