I was at the Thai embassy in London today - expecting to pay GBP 28 for a 60-day tourist visa - only to find out that from March 5th through June 4th anyone eligible for the visa-free 30 day entry can get the 60-day visa free of charge.
No idea if this applies at embassies throughout the world but it would seem likely..

At the embassy they advised it applied to multiple entry tourist visas as well (up to 3 entries)

Definitely what they said (you need to provide evidence of the exits and entries out of and into Thailand to get one though)
It may only apply in London perhaps - but definitely worth checking out if you're applying

You need to apply for the 60 day tourist visa before leaving at the Thai Embassy. (takes about 48 hours to process if you've got the necessary paperwork) See their website here:
You can get a 30 day extension on this visa (after 59 days in the country at the latest)That would cover your 3 months nicely!

Yep, single entry only - got it from a US consulate.
They could not grant multiple entry because itinerary was not present. Not sure what do you show that you plan to cross into Laos from Chiang Khong.
Consul official said to get re-entry stamp/extension whatever is called at an immigration office in Thailand (for a fee).
Anyone know what is the process for this, or am I locked into my single entry?

That's the right process you're saying. you just have to go to a thai immigration center (there are a lot all the way accross thailand).
just get a stamp for re-entry and done.
