SHESPEAKS Your Power to Influence

As a gift from a company, which would you prefer?

Companies offer a lot of incentives to get us to pay attention to their products and buy their brands.  If you had a choice, would you prefer a $10 gift card or coupons for free products? 

And, as always, let us know why!

4-5 coupons for free products from brand name manufacturers (52.4%)

$10 gift card to spend anywhere (47.6%)

    sometimes 10 just doesn't go very far anymore so why not get free stuff instead.

    TELLING MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY I RECEIVED $10 FREE IS NO BIG DEAL. TELLING THEM I RECEIVED 4-5 FREE PRODUCTS IS PRETTY COOL!!

    free is always nice in any economy. It would be nice to try new products.

    The items on the coupons might not come in need at the time. But with the gift card i can get simple little things i need!

    coupons might give me a chance to try new products or products I have never used

    4-5 coupons for free brand name stuff is worth a lot more than $10 and we need as much as we can get these days.

    I would like to have the flexibility to shop for items that my grandchildren might need; ie., clothing, school supplies, shoes, the necessities and maybe extras!

    I think the better value would be to recieve the coupons. Getting four or five free brand name items would amount to more than ten dollars. However, if the coupons are only redemable as a "buy one get one free" type deal, than I would have to say the ten dollar gift card is better.
