    Are you a member of T.A.M.B.A.? A friend has triplets, and I think she gets a discount at Clarkes Shoes shops, and maybe some other places, not too sure.

    Hi Kellymobbs. I've moved your post over to the Families Board. Hopefully, you will get a better response to your question on this board. :)

    Don't suppose you know what % discount they give do you? Will be watching this thread with interest as my sister has 4 year old twins and has never mentioned being able to get anything discounted.

    Not too sure what the actual % is, the lady with the triplets is away on holiday at the moment, due back next week. I'll ask her then.

    Found the details of the TAMBA website and, yes, you do get discounts when you join, but you have to join to find out how much they are! :rolleyes:

    We just need a MSE person who has joined before to spill the beans! ;)

    Also follow the link to "Twins Club" on the TAMBA page and you might find a local group. I ran one years ago when my twins were small (16 year olds now) and members traded prams, clothes and toys.
    Your local SureStart or health visitor might also know of a group - some don't get officially affiliated because of the cost!
    "Cheap", "Fast", "Right" -- pick two.

    what annoys me about having twins is the fact your child benefit is high rate for the first twin and low for the second - they say because you dont need as much money for siblings as you can share and pass down stuff - how can you do this with twins?

    my twins are also 16 now and gee, dont i know it - enjoy them while they are babies - lovely.....
  • If you are in receipt of benefit (excluding Child Tax Credit but including Working Families Tax Credit) then you could qualify for a Reduced Fee Membership with Tamba for just £15 per year.

    Call the Tamba office on 0870 770 3305 if you think you qualify.

    !!!!!! If they can do it for that price for some, why not all!
    Like my avatar, took the photo myself with the free digital camera I bought from boots with all my free points! I love moneysaving.

    Hi, I'm the lady with the triplets. There are loads of places which offer discounts to Tamba mambers but many appear to be local or for the kind of things you would get when the children are babies. I'm a member of Tamba and the discount at Clarkes and Start Rite is 10% off shoes for all your children, not just the multiples. Check with the shop first though as some Clarks shops are franchises and don't recognise the discount. I also got 10% off a roof box. I'll have a look at the discount list later and see if there are any other useful ones I've missed.
  • When I joined last year I was sent a list of all the shops that offered discounts - it saved me a lot of money - though https://www.kiddicare.com offers discounts for multiple purchases - the Tamba website has a members area with a members only forum and link to all the discounts available, you get a quarterly mag with some interesting articles - well worth the money IMHO - mom of 1 yr old b/g twins
