Add coupon codes to mass email ?

Is there a simple way to send mass email newsletters and have each copy include unique coupon codes (2 or 3 coupons per email with unique pre-generated codes assigned to each coupon), without a CRM ?
Maybe a way to use Mailchimp for instance, but pull the list of coupon codes from mySql or Sql Server or a flat file?

TIA

You couldn't do it with mailchimp directly. However, you can use mandrill which is part of the mailchimp family.    Mandrill is meant for sending one off emails.  http://mandrill.com/  I have just started using this service myself and I also use http://sendgrid.com/.

What you would do is use a server side language like asp or php and send an smtp email but use the mandrill or sendgrid smtp server and credentials instead of your smtp server.

Mandrill has some instructions for this http://help.mandrill.com/entries/21738447-Can-I-use-Mandrill-to-send-email-through-my-content-management-system-CMS-

if you need specific help on how to create your own smtp email from php or asp, let us know.
