In 2020, actress Kate Hudson’s popular subscription-based activewear brand membership Fabletics launched into the activewear space its highly-anticipated clothing line for men with a small limited collection promoted by actor and comedian Kevin Hart. Fast-forward to 2021 when everyone and their dog is living almost 24/7 in athleisure wear and the Fabletics Men collection now offers thousands of styles, including underwear and socks.
How Does Fabletics for Men Work?
Fabletics for women — it’s a subscription-based membership that offers discounted prices on crew neck workout tops, joggers and other activewear staples. Here is an outline to better understand what you get from the service:works just like
For about $50 per month, one new workout outfit each month is a pretty great deal, considering a single pair of Fabletics men’s sweatpants from the company’s line costs almost $90 if you were to buy the sweatpants on its own.
Other non-member prices range from $39.95 for a Tank to $79.95 for the Postgame Hoodie, but member pricing saves you 40% on those same items, saving you over $15 to over $30 on each item, respectively.
This Year’s Sign-up Discount is Even Better than Last Year
Fabletics for men also offers a pretty compelling deal to get people to sign up for a VIP membership: When you sign up, you can get two pairs of workout shorts for just $24, making each pair just $12 compared to their retail price of almost $60 each. If you’re thinking about upgrading your athleisure or streetwear wardrobe, this is a frugal way to stock up on foundational pieces like TechStyle pants, crewnecks and sweatshirts.
If you missed signing up Fabletics for Men in the past, you’re in luck since the current $24 is a better deal than the previous one of 2 for $39 that was promoted on the site in 2020. Remember, non-member prices guarantee a one-time payment of $59.95 for a single pair of shorts, so the saving of getting almost $120 worth of workout gear for just $24 pays for your first 2 months of a Fabletics membership.
This all sounds fine and dandy, unless you just don’t want to fork over $49.95 each month for new workout clothes.
How to Make a Fabletics Men VIP Membership Work for You – Try This Hack
If you like the idea of a curated closet based on your workout style, favorite colors and favorite styles — but not the idea of a subscription you may or may not use —
Every month, on the first of the month, Fabletics sends VIP members a reminder that their virtual closet is ready to shop or to skip the month if you don’t want to buy anything that month. If you skip the month before the 5th of the month, you won’t be charged the $49.95 membership fee.
You can then go back to Fabletics later in the month and purchase an outfit or individual pieces at the special VIP pricing. If you forget to skip, though, you will be charged the $49.95, which is placed on your account as a credit to use later. This means you’ll still have to purchase a curated outfit or piecemeal your own, although you don’t have to shop right away. The other sticky part? If you forget to skip the month and don’t spend that month’s credit, it doesn’t apply to the next month.
For example, let’s say you forgot to skip May. Your account is charged $49.95 and it’s placed on your account as a credit. June comes around and you never used that credit from May. Well, Fabletics will still charge you $49.95 if you don’t skip the month in June. So, by then, you may be out $100.
Moral of the story: don’t forget to skip the month if you don’t want to shop in a particular month. If you do remember to skip the month, you can still shop, but you don’t necessarily have to spend the entire $49.95. You can buy just one shirt at the discounted VIP price if you want.
