Yes, free. Not “put in your credit card” free or free “with $67 shipping.” Actually free. All you have to do is put in a little work sending the letters in the mail.
While pregnant, knowing we would be losing my income, I started looking for ways to save money. This is where I stumbled upon a few articles talking about getting things free for having multiples. Sweet. Push out three babes and get a free coupon. Seems easy enough?
I’m kidding, of course. I didn’t push the babies out. I had a c-section. Okay, kidding again. Anyways, after doing a bit more research and sending out a few letters, I realized – this wasn’t a scam. You really can get free stuff and not just a coupon! Formula. Back-packs. Gift certificates (I call them that because they are $10-$20 coupons, which pay for the entire product). Toys. Bottles. Yep, FREE!
I sent out my first round of letters on January 22nd. I am just now starting to receive the items in the mail, which means this list will be up-dated as times goes on. However, I wanted to get the details out to you NOW!
For each company, I sent a letter (scroll to bottom to see the letter used) and the girls temporary birth certificates from the hospital. They use that to verify that you actually have multiples. I found phone numbers you can all, as well, but, who has two hours to sit on hold in hopes that they do have a multiples program. Not me!

This is the template I used for each letter. I am not sure who to give credit to for the original template. I found it on multiple spots across the internet! Only thing I did was add in the last paragraph!
To Whom It May Concern:
On (date of birth), my husband and I became the proud parents of triplet girls. 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 birth certificates for our children (baby A, baby B, baby C).
We are BEYOND thank you for your support of our family. It truly does take a village. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at (insert email).
I thought about making each letter more personalized, but, decided I didn’t have enough time and went with signing each letter with a pen. Make sure you put your email address! They will add it to the tracking, meaning you get notified when you’re getting a package and that is half the excitement.
I hope this list helps you! Let me know if this works for you or if you have any other contacts you want to share.
Last thing, I will continuously be updating this as I received items (or find out the address doesn’t work or they don’t have a program).
