Freebies and Discounts for Twins and Multiples

I originally discovered that many companies offer freebies and discounts to parents after the birth of their twins or multiples through Twiniversity. I am so glad that I read about this because this is honestly something I would have never known about, and it is pretty darn easy to take advantage of.

Since the boys came unexpectedly early and were in the NICU for 4 weeks and life in general was crazy, I did not get around to working on this until 3 months after their birth.

To get started, you will need:

  • copies of their birth certificates or records of live birth from the hospital
  • a form letter (sample form letter can be found below)
  • envelopes and stamps
  • pen

This is an example of the form letter I used. To save paper, I printed two of the letters on each sheet of paper and cut them in half.

[DATE]

Dear Sir or Madam:

On [DATE OF BIRTH], my husband and I became the proud parents of twin boys. We understand that your company offers special benefits for families with multiples. We would love to take advantage of this offer and be added to any mailing list your company may keep for future coupons and informational mailings. Enclosed are copies of the proofs of birth for our children, [CHILDREN’S NAMES].

Thank you for your support of our family. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at [PHONE NUMBER].

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]

Some of the companies are extremely generous with what they sent to us, some were not and some gave no response whatsoever. Remember that these companies are being generous when they give you anything, so I was grateful for whatever we received.

I put an asterisk (*) next to the brands that I thought gave the best freebies or discounts, in case you are like me and are lacking in the time department. Remember, these programs and freebies can change at any time.
