Multiples Discounts

As if my life isn’t busy enough chasing after these three incredible boys, one of my pet projects these days is figuring out how to cut our budget, limit our spending, find deals on the things we need, and find ways to bring in a little extra cash. The reason why is all too simple. We went from a family of 3 on 2 incomes to a family of 5 on 1 income. I am living my dream by being a stay at home mom now, but if I want to be able to continue to stay home with my boys, I have to find ways to protect our bottom line.

Thanks to some fellow mothers of multiples, I learned a few months ago that many companies offer discounts or promotional products to families with multiples. So I got to work, creating a list of companies to contact, sending out letters, recording their responses, etc. I am including in this post a link to all of my findings. I didn’t contact everyone, and I didn’t hear back from everyone, but I think I now have a pretty comprehensive list of deals. Among the highlights, tons of diaper coupons (which we can always use!), free formula (which we didn’t use but passed along), even a $300 stroller that we only had to pay $40 shipping for!

If you are a parent of multiples reading this, I hope this list will help you to find savings for your family too. Just send a simple form letter to the company, but make sure you include copies of your children’s birth certificates. Here is what my form letter looked like:

To Whom It May Concern:

On April 24, 2012, my husband and I became the proud parents of twin boys, Benjamin and Alexander. We understand that your company offers promotional products (or coupons) to families with multiples. We would like to take advantage of this offer.

Enclosed are copies of birth certificates for our children. Thank you for your time, consideration, and support. We greatly appreciate it!

Sincerely,

(and then I included my name and contact information here)

Here is the link to my spreadsheet with addresses and information, enjoy!!

    Didn’t work for me on the stroller. Never heard back from the company. Sent the letter about 8-9 months ago….

      I’m so sorry it didn’t work for you. I sent mine around the end of August and heard back about a month later. Did you make sure to include birth certificates?
