How does the subscription service for Becko Books Work?

It's easy. Sign Up by selecting either the Monthly or Bi-monthly service.  Then select the Becko Box you'd like based on the age of the child.  We will send you a survey by e-mail for you to provide more informaition about your child, so we can optimize the reading level appropriate for your child.  We will ship your box on the 15th of the month.

What is the One-Time Becko Box?

The One-Time box is not a subscription and is available as a trial sample. It's often purchased as a gift for Baby Showers, birthdays or Christmas presents. The One-Time box ships two days after an order is placed and it often arrives at its destination within 7-10 days (depending on location of the order).

Our target audience is children ages 0-12.  We have four box types which you select from when you sign up.

My Account

What should I expect after I Sign Up?

Yay!  After you do a happy dance, you should receive an email asking you to provide a little more information about your child to customize your Becko Box.

I signed up! When will I be billed?

New subscriptions and one-time boxes are billed immediately.  Subscription members are billed the same day they signed up in subsequent months according to their subscription frequency.  For example:  Joe signed up on the second of February and has a monthly subscription.  He will be charged the second of March and every second of the month there after.

When will my Becko Box arrive?

All subscriptions are shipped around the 15th of the month via USPS.  Boxes arrive at their destination near the end of the month.  An email with a tracking number will be emailed to you when your box is shipped.

One-time boxes are shipped within two days of the order received and arrive at their destination within 7-10 days of shipping.  No expedited shipping is available at this time.

I can't wait to receive my Becko Box, is there a best time to Sign Up?

Subscriptions renew on the first of the month.  This means that subscriptions which begin after the 2nd day of the month will have their first Becko Box shipped on the 15th of the following month.   For example:  If Sonia signs up on the 28th or April, she will have her first box shipped on May 15th but if she waits to sign up until May 5th (after the first of May), her first box will ship on June 15th.

I'm going on vacation, is there a way to pause my subscription?

Yes you can!  You have the option to pause your subscription for up to two months.  After two months your subscription will resume automatically.  

To pause your subscription, login into your account area and select My Subscription > Manage > Subscription Settings.

How do I cancel my subscription?

We'd hate to see you go, but if you must no problem.  Cancel anytime.    Log in to your account area and select My Subscriptions > Manage > Subscriptions Settings.
