Who cares about pumpkin spice when October is also “Kroctober”?
Hey, Crocs aren’t for everyone, but many people swear by the clog of rubbery foam. Nurses love them. The Crocs company gave one million pairs to health care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now you have a shot at winning some free crocs of your own – but you have to act fast.
The makers of Crocs announced that they’re giving away thousands of pairs of Crocs, which they’re calling “Croctober,” this week to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Of course they are.
However, the daily Crocs giveaway only runs until this Friday, October 7.
what you need to do to get free crocs
Here’s what you have to do:
You’ll need to join Crocs Club (which is free) and opt in for email. Go to https://www.crocs.com/. Then go to this webpage and click on the button that says “Enter Now”. You can also enter drawings through the Crocs app. The daily drawing is open for entry from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. To drive the daily drawing, the footwear company is using something called EQL, a commerce platform for retailers. You will need to create an EQL account, which is also free and very easy to do. You’ll need to enter some payment information to join the EQL, but they swear you won’t have to pay anything to enter the drawing. Once the daily drawing is closed, if you win, you will be notified by email within 12 hours. You will still get the shipping details. This is a drawing, so you are not guaranteed to win. If you don’t win on Thursday, try again on Friday.
Oh, but the Croctober doesn’t end there, my Crocs-wearing friend! perish the thought!
On October 20, Crocs Club members will have their first shot at buying a new limited-edition “Croc Day” pairing clause — if you’re into that sort of thing.
On Croc’s Day, which is October 23, the footwear maker will host what it calls a “global metaverse experience” on the Roblox and Zepto virtual world platforms. The immersive virtual event will feature a special guest appearance, allow Crocs fans to connect via live in-game meet and greets, and offer VIP benefits to Crocs club members.
“Croctober is one of our favorite times of the year,” said Heidi Cooley, Crocs Chief Marketing Officer. Yes, he really did say so.
Croc Nation, the time has come.
