General Information

What is ‘Put a Sock In It’? What's included?

‘Put a Sock In It’ is a letterbox sock subscription that brings you awesome socks monthly. Our socks follow a monthly theme, in which we offer both a pattern and illustrated option. Our illustrated socks are sometimes a bit more fun and ‘goofy’, allowing us to be more playful; whilst our pattern socks are designed to be fun and stylistic, whilst also being suitable for offices. Love the sound of both of our sock options… why not have both!

The socks are 'one size, fits all' approximately around 6-11.

Illustrated or Pattern?

‘Put a Sock In It’ brings you 2 sock styles that follow a theme every month. Our options are illustrated and pattern.

Our illustrated socks are sometimes a bit more fun and ‘goofy’, allowing us to be more playful; whilst our pattern socks are designed to be fun and stylistic, whilst also being suitable for offices. Love the sound of both of our sock options… why not have both!

Don’t fancy both, but want a random selection each month? Why not select our surprise option! This is a completely random selection between pattern or illustration.

I’ve opted for the surprise option, and I’ve gotten the same style multiple months in a row?

Our surprise option is completely random, this means you could have a different style (pattern or illustrated) every month, or, you may have a couple of months with pattern or illustrated before you get the other style.

Can I have more than one subscription on my account?

Yes, you can have as many subscriptions on your account as you want. These can all be managed easily within your account by simply logging in.

How do I prevent my subscription from auto-renewing?

To prevent your subscription from auto renewing you must make sure you cancel your subscription before the next bill date on your plan. You must make sure to cancel your subscription by the 3rd of the month, this must be prior to the billing date and not on the 3rd of the month, otherwise you will find that payment may have already been taken, meaning the subscription has successfully renewed.

Cancelling your subscription does not affect your current months boxes. The team will honour cancelling any future renewals for you. However, we will not automatically issue a refund unless requested in your email.

Unfortunately, if contact is made after the 3rd of the month, we are unable to cancel the renewal which has been applied to the subscription. This is simply due to the fact the warehouse would have processed your box and it will be ready for dispatch. We can however assist with cancelling your next renewal due.

How do I change my account details?

You can change most details directly on your subscription by simply logging into your account and editing accordingly. We have some useful user guides available within our FAQ's, with detailed videos on each process

Can I change my subscription plan?

You can alter your ‘Put a Sock In It’ plan at any time. However, due to the way the subscription service operates. You do run the risk of a new order being generated, if this is not done correctly or at the right time.

You will need to follow the below steps, to prevent receiving a duplicate box

  1. Cancel your existing subscription, this can be done directly via your account once logged in
  2. Do not re subscribe until you have received your final box. This is simple if you’re on a monthly plan, but if on a 3 or 12 month, ensure you've received all 3 or 12 boxes before re subscribing.
  3. Once you have received your final box. You then can re subscribe to the service the following month, under the preferred plan. It must be done from the 1st of the following month, to prevent receiving a duplicate box. Our subscription runs from the 1st to the final day of the month, so all orders within this time receive the same plant.
