If you do the opposite by telling them you got sick, or was ripped off, by their product they tend to send out free stuff as a sort of apology and “please don’t go around bad mouthing our product” kinda thing. That’s what my nan used to do.

yeah, that’s what my brother used to do too, but i think it’s pretty scummy because most of the time you need to enter the barcode of the product and where you bought it, and he sometimes complained about fast food products that were wrong when they actually weren’t and had to say where and when he bought them, and it’s a pretty shitty thing to do because he could be getting people in trouble

once he got a whole box of fizzy drink for free tho
