Loving Right Now: BlueQ Socks & their Free Stuff Promotion

7 Nov

{Pssst, my Loving Right Now posts aren’t paid or sponsored or anything. They are just stuff that I’m totally digging now and thought you would like too. You can check out my previous posts here}

It has finally gotten cool enough to wear socks in Maryland, so I was kind of excited to pop the tags off my new BlueQ pair that I picked up in San Francisco:

New socks. 😍 #styleblogger #blueq #ootd

They made me happy. Like, super happy. So happy in fact that I decided to do a little online shopping on the BlueQ website…and saw that they were running a special:

I first checked out the sale section, and found the Sugar Monster socks and the Cha Cha Cha Fox socks both on sale for $4.99. GET IN MY CART.

In order to redeem their super cool promo, I needed a minimum order of $15, so I then perused the regular priced section. That’s where I found the “You can do it – Coffee” socks. I also couldn’t resist the “Bite Me” apple socks.

To say I was super excited to receive my sock order sounds a little weird, but I WAS super excited! I was also pretty darn curious to see what my $26.96 worth of goodies was going to be…

And here it is:

My free goodies are:

“I Could Use a Sandwich” men’s socks (not online), $11.99
“Psst” bird women’s socks (not online), $9.99
“No, You Act Normal” pencil case, $5.99
Vintage Plaid messenger bag, original price $19.99 on sale for $9.99

I was hoping they’d throw in some more socks, so I’m thrilled about the two pairs they sent. I was a little worried that they’d have cursing on them (a lot of the socks have more colorful phrases) and with Jack starting to do sight words… well, I’d rather him not recognize some of those! The “I Could Use a Sandwich” socks are men’s, so I should give them to Travis or my brother… The “No, You Act Normal” pencil case is super cute and I can totally get some use out of it.

The only item that I don’t have a use for is the messenger bag. It is super cool though — it’s made out of 95% post consumer recycled material. So I’ve decided to give it away to one of you! If you’d like the messenger bag, just leave a comment on this post saying so. If more than one person comments I’ll randomly pick a winner and mail it out.

All in all, the free goodies added up to $38 – $48 (depending on whether you use the sale prices), so their promo was a GREAT deal! If you want to pick something up for yourself or get a head start on holiday shopping, check out the BlueQ website. I’m sure they will be running some more cool promotions soon!

Now it’s your turn to share, what are you totally loving right now?
