In this work we consider the border collision bifurcations occurring in a one-dimensional piecewise linear map with two discontinuity points. The map, motivated by an economic application, is written in a generic form and considered in the stable regime, with all slopes between zero and one. We prove that the period adding structures occur in maps with more than one discontinuity points and that the Leonov's method to calculate the bifurcation curves forming these structures is applicable also in this case. We demonstrate the existence of particular codimension-2 bifurcation (big-bang bifurcation) points in the parameter space, from which infinitely many bifurcation curves are issuing associated with cycles involving several partitions. We describe how the bifurcation structure of a map with one discontinuity is modified by the introduction of a second discontinuity point, which causes orbits to appear located on three partitions and organized again in a period-adding structure. We also describe particular codimension-2 bifurcation points which represent limit sets of doubly infinite sequences of bifurcation curves and appear due to the existence of two discontinuities.
