I cannot tell you how often I hear someone that is ‘boycotting’ a brand for some reason or another. Usually it’s due to a viral rumor, but that’s another story… (remember the fake Oprah/Tommy Hilfiger scandal? )
I’ve also had couponers tell me that they organize their coupons by ‘parent company’. WOW! I cannot believe that they can find anything when it’s lumped into eight random groups.
The graphic above is a very easy to read diagram of parent companies and their subsidiaries. I wish I could take or give credit for this graphic, but I received it in an email and there was no name attached.
As a couponer, rebater, or just plain ‘ol shopper, it’s important to know the parent companies for several reasons. In one of my stores this week is a promotion: Buy any 5 Kraft products, save $5 instantly. No coupon required, the register will take care of everything. Now you can easily find qualifying items without searching the store high and low.
