Why Choose a sock of the month Subscription?
sock of the month subscriptions are an incredibly popular gift idea. The best part? You don’t have to do any shopping! Your recipient gets some really cool socks every month, and you can keep the fun going by sending a new pair each time. If you want to get in on the fun too, or if you want something to wear with your favorite dress shoes, read on to find out more about sock of the month subscriptions and why they make such great gifts!
10 things you need to know before picking a sock subscription
Most sock companies offer a sock of the month option and these subscriptions are wildly popular. But choosing one isn’t as simple as you might think. There are many reasons to try one out, but there are also several things you should consider before purchasing your first sock subscription.
Is it fun?
Fun is certainly subjective, but most people love novelty and gift-giving, so I think yes. The idea behind sock of the month clubs is that you receive 12 pairs of socks each year. This is fun because you get to sample a variety of styles without making too big an investment in any single pair. You can customize your subscription by telling us what type(s) of socks you like (or dislike). We tailor our recommendations based on your preferences, as well as information we glean from Facebook and other sources about what's popular or trending in men's fashion. You can also shop for socks on our website if you prefer to select your own style and color choices; but why would you when we'll do it for you?
Will I get what I want?
When you first get started in your sock-of-the-month club, you'll answer some basic questions about what types of socks you like and which kinds don't fit your philosophy. (Do you wear socks all year round? Do they have to match with your outfits or just go well with them?) That way, when each month's new set arrives in your mailbox, you'll know if it's right for you. Philosockphy! People often ask me whether they can return their socks or not—and as much as I'd love to help them out (I mean, who doesn't love returns?), we only send out awesome socks that our customers will want to keep forever...so no returns allowed!
Is it worth it financially and emotionally?
You’re paying for convenience – but is it worth it financially and emotionally? Economically, if you’re purchasing some of your clothing (like socks) online anyway, you may as well get some fun socks. But don’t fall into that trap of having to buy new clothes every time they arrive. I have a friend who used to do that with her sock-of-the-month club – she never really knew what kind of socks she would like, so each month she would go out and buy something new to wear with them. That’s silly! Try some old standbys in fun colors and styles instead.
What about gifts for family members, friends and coworkers?
There’s something funny about socks. We buy them for everyone and anyone, but we only wear our own. Most people have three to five pairs that make it through an entire week without smelling worse than your toilet after Taco Tuesday. Philosocks puts philosophy on your feet! Our socks are different; they inspire thought, conversation and laughter—but most importantly, they bring you closer to those you love. Our sock of the month club isn’t just socks—it’s philosocks! Each month when we send out new socks, we include a card with some philosophical questions designed to get you talking and laughing. This is our philosophy: sharing life together through conversation and laughter over socks. Now that's our kind of sock-sitivity!
Can I cancel easily at any time without incurring hefty fees?
Before you sign up for anything, it’s important to read through any contract and/or terms & conditions. Make sure you understand what fees are associated with canceling early and what your options are. Not all subscription boxes will allow you to skip or cancel easily if you decide that it’s not working out for you, so keep that in mind when choosing something with recurring billing. You may also be able to set up an auto-pay option to ensure easy cancellation down the road.
How can I reach customer service quickly in case of an issue or question?
Our customer service team works Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm Pacific time. Please visit our website and send us an email or submit a support ticket online and we will respond within 24 hours. If you leave us a voicemail outside of these hours, we will return your call at our earliest convenience. We always want to be accessible to our customers!
What are they options are when it comes to delivery frequency, number of packages per month, etc.?
Our socks are available in 3 delivery frequency options: 1 month, 3 months and 6 months. Our customers who choose to do an auto-shipment tend to prefer three packages per month as it allows them to have fresh new designs every month. The socks are also available individually if someone wants to purchase just one pair or there's any special occasions that call for just one pair of socks (like weddings!).
Why do you love your sock subscription box so much?
When you wear socks, they cover up your feet. But what’s on your feet says a lot about who you are and who you want to be. For example, I’m going to wear a different pair of socks each day for as long as .ehlk u a iewnrSepmi dsi h.omyosrBoeoadaI nrTh&soahpioy.>ioh<>:ebrfrnc ce itis h oit!r
