MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK: Bonus savings on receipts

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

For the past few years, I've noticed more and more stores and restaurants offering bonus savings for your opinion. 

Stopping into a Dunkin Donuts in Sandston, I was in the mood for coffee and a donut. Someone with the company wanted to know specifically how my transaction went. For filling out an online survey within three days, the next donut I get with coffee will be free.  

Every time I buy lunch at the Burger King across the street from work, the receipt is attached to the order. If I answer their online questions about my experience, I'll be getting a free whopper or chicken sandwich on my next visit. And there's no limit to how many times I can do it.  

You're already a customer, so you like the place and are more likely than others to return. Receipt coupons are just added incentive to get you back in the store. 

There's more survey savings - at Wendy's, you can get two dollars off a large sandwich or salad which can cut the cost in half. Then there's Dave and Busters - their survey could be worth $10 of gameplay or a free appetizer. Old Navy's survey knocks 10% off your next order. 

Some receipts, like those from grocery stores, print coupons on the back that support neighboring businesses. Some receipts, like the ones from Petco, have big discounts on other products the store offers. And then there's the contests - your feedback could win you an iPad at Taco Bell, $500 at Ulta or a $5000 gift card at Lowe's. 

So let companies know what you think, your opinion is valuable, otherwise these incentives wouldn't be available. Most of these offers are time sensitive and need to be completed within a few days of your purchase. Surveys that give you redemption codes to write on receipts don't expire.
