what can you get with $39 these days?It was Steve Rubel who found it, now I'm passing it on. Likely, plenty of others will do the same.
It's called the $39 experiment, and it's simple: Take $39 worth of stamps, mail 100 letters to 100 companies asking for some free stuff, and see what happens. There's more to the equation of course; visit the link and read to the bottom, where he (Tom Locke) has his often hilarious letters written- and the status of the response from the companies.
Since it's obvious that this cheeky concept will make its rounds of the blogosphere, it will be interesting to see which companies respond at all, which respond the quickest, and whether their responses reflect the fact that they know they have an audience of a LOT more people than just the letter writer.
