Easy Ways to Buy An Owlet

It is our mission to empower ALL parents with the information they need to know their babies are okay. In order to accomplish this mission, our product needs to have both affordable prices and be accessible. Every day we are exploring new options to make this possible and are working hard to make technology that is normally thousands of dollars, less expensive and appropriate for in-home use on an infant for $299.

While we’re extremely proud of the work we’ve done so far to make the Smart Sock 2 more affordable than other products that use pulse oximetry, we understand there’s still a lot of work to be done and we’re continually working to make our products less expensive to produce while maintaining the quality and reliability. Here are a few immediate ways we are trying to help ALL parents experience the peace of mind Owlet provides.

Buy the Smart Sock using HSA / FSA funds

Did you know that you can now use your FSA or HSA funds to purchase a Smart Sock? It’s easy! Simply visit our website and add products you would like to purchase to your cart. Once finished, proceed through the checkout process like normal and use your FSA or HSA card in place of your debit/credit card. 

Discount Owlet Smart Sock – Certified Refurbished

Keep an eye on our website — as inventory allows, we sell Certified Refurbished Smart Sock 1’s for a 30-50% discount (price ranges from $149.99 – $199.99). Affirm and gift cards can be used in conjunction with refurbished monitors too! To see if we have any refurbished monitors in stock, check out our website.

Add Owlet to Your Registry

Are you signed up for a registry? The Owlet Smart Sock 2 is now sold in major retail stores, like buybuy Baby, Babies R Us, and Amazon.com, where you can add it to your registry! You can also easily add the Owlet using the online Babylist Baby Registry here.

Gift Cards – Help From Friends

Did you know we offer gift cards on our website? Amounts from $5, $15, $25 and up are available, which is a great way for your friends and family to contribute, even in small amounts. Find them here.

Foundation Support

If you find none of these options seem appropriate for your circumstances, you can seek support from one of many foundations who raise funds to purchase Owlet Smart Socks for families in need. Many of these foundations have an application process and quantities are limited. To help, Owlet matches many foundations one for one.

The Future (Insurance, Subscription & More)

Owlet has submitted a 510(k) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), seeking clearance for a medical version of the Owlet Smart Sock. This would open the door to have the Smart Sock covered by insurance and give doctors the opportunity to prescribe them to patients. We are also looking into a subscription model where parents can essentially rent their Owlet device.

  1. What is an fsa or an had can’t say I’ve ever heard of it. Tempted to buy my new grandson 1 as my son in law is the most paranoid person I have ever met, although this is his 1st an last. My daughter has an 8yr old daughter an we had never heard of this, not even in the nicu where I work.

    1. Hi Dani! A FSA or HSA is a Flex Savings or Health Savings Account that’s usually provided through your insurance to use for qualified medical expenses. Our team would love to answer any questions you may have, feel free to send them an email to contact@owletcare.com or to call us at (844) 334-5330.

  2. Are there any plans to make any larger socks? I need something like this for my almost 2 year old… She is small so it would probably fit right now but not for long. We are seriously trying to find something like this that will work for her.

    1. Hi Shanan! We don’t have plans for larger sock sizes right now but we can definitely pass your interest in this along to our development team!

  3. Hi. Our owlet is about a year old, and lately it’s been nothing but problems. Won’t connect and keeps saying it’s out of range when it’s in the same room as our son. Can support team help with this or are we going to have to buy a whole new one?

    1. Hi Harlie, we’re so sorry to hear your Owlet is giving you some troubles. Our team would definitely like to look into this for you, just give them a call at (844) 334-5330!

  4. Hello, I have a question. My Fiance has HSA but I am not on his plan since we are not married. Are we this still eligible to use his HSA card since this is his daughter even though she is not on his insurance since she is not born yet?

    1. Hi! It’s highly unlikely that your insurance would cover the cost as the Owlet is not a medical device but you could reach out to your provider to see what they say!

  5. We have owlets for our twins, however I cannot link both owlets to the same app. Is there a way to do this that I’m not seeing?

    1. Hi Tiffany! Currently, the Owlet Smart Sock 2 and mobile application are not optimized for use with twins. Two separate full Owlet Monitors and two separate mobile app accounts are required to monitor and view both twins at the same time. With two app accounts, you could either log into both babies’ accounts through two different mobile devices simultaneously or if only one mobile device is housing the app, you would need to log out of one twin’s account and then log into the other. We are working on making the app more user-friendly to multiples, though, so make sure to keep an eye out for this in the future!

  6. We will be fostering a baby boy that is to be born in the next week or so. We cannot afford to pay for another owlet (have one for my special needs 9mo old right now). What are some of the foundations we can apply to? Who knows how much prenatal care the mother received. Thanks!

  7. I just tried to purchase with my HSA card and the card wouldn’t go through. I know that there’s still plenty of money left in the account to cover this. Have you had any trouble with certain provider’s accounts not allowing transactions?

    1. Hey Taryn! Some cards aren’t going through but we’re actively trying to figure out what’s going on. While you can submit for a reimbursement, we would like to see which providers are having difficulties going through. Can you send our team an email to contact@owletcare.com with which card type (Visa or Mastercard) and the provider of your HSA?

    1. Hi Allison! Right now, you can’t split the cost but you can ask your HSA provider if they would do a partial reimbursement.

  8. Hi! I want to get this for my daughter, but my FSA card is getting declined (Zenefits). Do i need to have a specifc FSA or submit something to the IRS?

    1. Hi Michael! We’ve had a few cards be declined at checkout but you can still submit for a reimbursement. If you need further information, let us know here and we’ll get that sent to you. We’re actively trying to find a solution for this. What type of card do you have (Visa or Mastercard?).

  9. Are there a list of foundations we can apply to? I’m expecting my first child in March and she has been diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. We are a low income family. Hoping this can be covered by insurance eventually:)

  10. Hi. I put an owlet on my amazon registry and it qualifies for the 15% completion discount, however my friends and family got owletcare gift cards at my shower. Can I somehow get a 15% from owlet to use my gift cards but get my amazon price???

  11. I saw a post about a quote for triplets I had previously gotten a hold the islet team and said they don’t offer this as a triple thing bc u would have to individually buy each unit idk who has 7-800$ to individually buy them and then also have to have 3 diff devices to run it otherwise u have to sign in and out which then u wouldn’t be able to keep track of your baby.. is this something that’s been worked on or is this still the same and u have to buy individual units??

    1. Hi Kim! With the nature of pulse oximetry, you would need to buy an individual Owlet for each child. Our team is working on a fix for viewing multiple babies in the app, though! However, regardless of which baby profile is open, you’ll still receive push notifications from the other profiles. The base stations will also continue to function as the primary notification system (meaning they’ll notify you if you don’t have the app open or even if you don’t have the app). We hope that helps!

  12. Hi I have a baby boy and he has healthy issues my doctor recommended this but we don’t have the money for it is there anyway I could get help with getting one.

  13. Are there any stipulations that make this an approved purchase with an HSA? For example, does it need to be suggested/prescribed by a doctor or need to be used for any certain illness or medical condition? Or is it where anyone for any reason who buys it can use their HSA or FSA? Thanks so much!!

  14. How can I get financial assistance for my purchase? We are a one income household with no insurance and don’t qualify for affirm.

  15. I am on the monthly payment plan for the Owlet. Can I replace my credit card info with my FSA card information to make the remaining payments?

  16. is this considered an acceptable purchase when using HSA? I know HSA/insurance does not always cover certain purchases when using HSA.

  17. Hello! I bought an Owlet in August. Can I file a claim with my medical Flexible Spending Account now to be reimbursed for that?

  18. I am a foster mom who takes drug exposed newborns. Therefore, I am not their insurer, and no HSA applies, and of course the county won’t reimburse me for anything like this. Is there a list of foundations I can apply to? I applied to one that I saw online, but all I seemed to accomplish was more facebook ads, and no response to my application.

  19. Do you know when you should hear back about insurance possibly covering some/all of it? Our baby is due in February and I plan on getting one, but I’d rather wait if it could go towards our deductible. 🙂

  20. I would like to get one of these for my son who is in the nicu born at 23 weeks it would give me some piece of mind but I can’t afford it can my insurance pay or it or how can I go about getting one?

    1. Hi Amber! At this time, it’s highly unlikely that your insurance would cover the cost. However, in the post above, we have a few suggestions that may help. Best wishes from the Owlet Team!

  21. I purchase an owlet sock and base 6 weeks ago – can I use HSA funds to self-reimburse for that, or is this only for new purchases?
