We Love Fridays: Sock Insurance

Posted by Nicole | Friday November 16, 20128 comments

Don't you hate it when you're getting ready in the morning and you just can't seem to find a matching pair of socks? Or when you have officially lost one of your favourite socks and have to throw out the other one because you don't want to walk around with mismatched socks? Those days are over!

Meet Betabrand's Sock Insurance. This sock insurance covers a year of possible sock loss and will replace up to two single socks for you with no extra fee! There is a handful of colourful designs to chose from in their insured sock collection. This is an excellent idea if you're prone to losing socks, or just want to take extra precautions just in case something may happen to a sock in a year's time.

They have ways of making this more fun as well! In order to claim your replacement sock, they state that you have to "go to any Betabrand Insured Sock page to submit a claim, which basically involves you uploading a funny photo and sharing it on Facebook." Your sock loss will probably bring joy to others that see your funny photo, too. This isn't something to get cold feet over - it's a win-win situation!

What do you think of having your socks insured?

Lol wow the things people come up with. I simply always buy the same socks (black ankle socks from dollarama) and keep them in a shoe box. This way, I never have to pair socks, and if I lose one it doesn't matter because I have a ton of others allll the same! ...They\re cheap too.

I like the idea but I don't wear crazy patterned socks.

I'm traditional white over here. Wouldn't be against wearing Argyles though.

Now this is funny!! I really can’t se me using this because I don’t have this problem. I just fold the two matching socks together when they come out of the dry. Although I have heard of the sock monster that seems to love stealing one sock out of the dryer.LOL
It’s a cute idea and I’m sure a lot of people will jump onto it, but I think I’m safe, at least I hope I am.LOL

Hilarious! But do you think 15 minutes at Geico will save me 15% or more on sock insurance? I really want to get the best possible value for my socks...
