Redeem limited-edition high cut socks & long pencil collectable

On to the one word we all love: “free”. Several IKEA-themed freebies await shoppers, but be sure to snag these early on in the day, since there’s a daily cap on redemptions.


Long socks? Instant hipster vibes. Top it off with cute patterns and you have IKEA’s limited edition socks, which come free with a minimum spend of $90 on home furnishing items. They’re uber cute with prints like IKEA’s iconic snacks, retro sofas, and adorable blue sharks. 

Be sure to purchase all your items in a single receipt and redeem the socks on the same day. While the designs are given out at random, nothing’s stopping you from trading with a friend to get your preferred pattern.

Note that it’s limited to the first 1,200 redemptions per store, per day. And only one redemption per customer is allowed.
