Angry Nestle Good Start's Very Best Baby program sent me a .25 and .50 cent formula check!

...And that's it!

I called in to complain, because I have friends with babies who recieve $12 checks from NGS. 25 cents does not help me when thier formula is $25!!!! You might as well throw it away! The lady on the phone told me that "sometimes when your baby reaches a certain age the checks get smaller". Well, I told her, my baby is only 3 months old. I have friends with older babies recieving much larger checks. I asked her if I was sent worthless checks because perhaps I live in a very Urban neighborhood and perhaps it was some sort of bias? She had nothing to say to that. Needless to say, I am livid....

We only used NGS while Eliza was on fromula, we got checks from everyone except NGS!!!! The only reason I used this brand ( I breast fed for 8 mo) is because the hospital gave me a sample can.......
Next time I think I'll use something else!

I can't dog the NGS b/c when I got mastitis and could not make enough milk fo rmy twins it was the ONLY thing that worked.

My friend's sister was on WIC and lived in a very rural, very poor part of MS. She sent me her NGS checks (her baby used similac) and I would send her Similac checks and sometimes walmart gift cards and diaper coupons. Well, one time she sent me a batch of checks with these in there and they had her DH's name on them. Her checks were the regular amount. Same family even, much different amounts. Did you sign up under other family members? I don't think it's your neighborhood b/c my friend's sister's situation is as far from Urban and upscale as it gets. I didn't get any checks from Nestle with my oldest, but I got them with my twins. Honestly I think it is about demographics (what areas they need to boost sales maybe). Try not to take it personally. I did use my .25 and .50 checks, by the way!

They include info on the feeding stage and stuff besides just a check, so I guess they looked at it as sending out information or a pamphlet to justify the postage.

I've never gotten more than an $8 check and that's rare, usually it's a $1! I've never even seen an $11 check! We get tons from Enfamil and Similac but GS are rare.

I never received anything from Similac, and I just started getting $4 and $5 for Enfamil Next Step.

I will have to, but this is sudden. Last month I got a $12 check and a $1 check. Nope, I am a single mom living by myself so It's just under my name, one address. However I did used to live a few blocks away, same zip and moved recently because I wanted a bigger apartment (for the baby). And when I got checks there while I was still pregnant from NGS, they were always the $12 and $1 ones. It did cross my mind that maybe they think im getting them at 2 addresses, however my name is VERY common (Smith) and with such a high density of population where I live, there is surely 100's of smiths in my zipcode. So I dont think they could have possibly suspected that. Even so, to make the assumption and send someone with a baby invaluable checks without knowing for a fact someone is conning them, is wrong and I'd like to believe thier reps are not instructed to do such a thing.

Well when I finished talking to the rep she said she would send me some coupons, however thier worth i dont expect to be much. She had an accent and got my address wrong three times, and seemed annoyed the third time I corrected her, so im not even sure im going to get them. But we'll see! At least there was a gesture made.

Well, if you sign up under a friend or family member, remember that all the good checks come before your baby is 5 mos old. Take that into consideration. I hate to say "lie about her bday" so, just "take that into consideration!"

I also only received a check for $.50 and $.25. I complained to them in an email stating how much I got from Enfamil and Similac and asked them why they expect me to buy their formula when they haven't given me any inncentive. I was emailed back stating that different regions receive different offers. I then received an envie full (like $25) of NGS coupons, including one for a free can (up to $13.99 I think, so a small can). They didn't send me any checks, only coupons.

We only use NGS because my son has severe feeding issues and the specialist we see says that it is the easiest for him to digest. I no longer get any checks from them in the mail (at least I can't remember the last time I got any), but I have sent them 2-3 emails asking questions (no complaints, no compliments) and each time, I have been sent high value or free coupons. I sent another email today asking why the NGS2 checks exclude the large size powder can but no stores carry the small one in NGS2. We'll see what their response is!

That is exactly what they send me! I was signed up to get them for a friend, and they send these tiny little checks. I feel it's an insult to even give these to her. Maybe I should write them too. BTW-I live in a very rural area, all farm country, so I don't think that's part of it.

yeah bette... it even seemed insulting that THEY would send them out in the first place. checks of that amount are insulting alltogether. Would you write a check as a gift for .25? how can they expect people to buy thier formula over other brands (unless of course, they absolutely have to). The averge large can of NGS is $25. so how is taking off 1/100th of the cost any help to anybody?? well, im not going to keep being bitter about it Im just going to look forward to seeing what those Q's look like

Well, add me to the list! After I said they no longer send me checks, I got a .25 and a .50 one in the mail today. I was hoping to be done with formula since my little one is almost 1, but due to his health issues, now we have to continue with NGS2. What a pain!

I used NGS exclusively with my little one- at first they send you the higher amount checks, to get you "hooked"- most people don't switch formula's, and then the amounts slowly go down from there.

It started out as $11 and $8, then $11 and $5, then $8 and $5, then $5 and $1- they figure you will keep buying it, and this is just a little help. I personally didn't use the >50 or >25 checks- which I also got as he got older. But I did a lot of trading and ebay searching, and was generally always able to use an $11 or $8 check per can. I bought the smaller 12 oz powder cans so the
checks went further. Every now and then there were also coupons out, $2 or so off NGS, I would use those along with the checks! I do wish you well, but I don't really think calling and complaining as you did will help much. As for the bias- I am not sure they even know what type of neighborhood you live in just by your address.
Keep your eyes open here- people are always trading for formula checks- I am sure you can pick some up!

In my opinion, you need to e-mail them as well. I did this, because when I found out I was pregnant someone signed me up for them and I didnt need to use them then so I gave them away and when I stopped BF at 6 months, and needed them, they wouldn't send me anymore. I wrote and told them about all of this and they said they don't normally give them out past a certain age, but would love to help me out in this case. I just got the envie the other day (it took about 2+ weeks to get here) and it was packed full of coupons. One for a FREE can of NGS, 3 $2/1 cans, several of the 2.00/2 and those types of things. im hoping now that maybe they will start sending me checks again every month. but i did call them before i emailed them and i got the same line about we can't send them past a certain age! i understand that, but as much formula as i am buying now, it really helps to have any little bit...
