So over the last few months I have finally grown tired of receiving horrible, rude, and just plain BAD service everywhere I go! Soooo...I finally started complaining. And not to managers who don't care or supervisors who are simply "warm bodies," but to CORPORATE! Check out what I have received for FREE in just the past few months:
*$30 gift card to Olive Garden *$20 gift card to Chili's *3,500 Delta Skymiles (This put me over the 25k limit to get my FREE award ticket!)
Now, I haven't gotten all corporate-complaining happy and just complained about every last little thing just to get freebies, BUT, I have gone out of my way to notify Olive Garden, Chili's and Delta when they have had remarkably horrible service. I have realized the best way to contact a company and simply go to their website and find the "Contact Us" button and then send them a short e-mail. I usually get a response within 2-3 business days and voila!
What do you think? Have you ever complained and gotten anything for free? What methods work best for you?
