I know I put this in my Coupon category, and while it isn’t technically a coupon, it is a money saver!
Over the summer, my 2 girls and I all went for eye exams, and found out we all needed eyeglasses. Ouch. Double ouch. Triple ouch to our bank account. I think we all know how much glasses cost, and thankfully we have decent vision insurance that covered most of the cost of a pair of eyeglasses for each of us.
But, knowing how we are, I knew that at some point those pairs would get lost, broken, misplaced, etc. So, I had heard about the website, Zenni Optical, from a few friends, and decided to check it out to see if we could get a few pairs as back ups. They have frames starting as low as $6.95, shipping is $4.95, and they have options for different types of lenses, they have tinted lenses, and they offer clip-on sunglasses as well.
They also have this neat feature where you can upload a picture and “try on” a pair of glasses.
I signed up for their e-mails, and after a few weeks, they had a coupon code for 10% off. I decided on the pair shown above, entered in my prescription, and waited patiently the 2 weeks for them to arrive.
These are frame #339627, which are $6.95. I got the free lenses, added anti-reflective coating for $4.95, shipping was $4.95, coupon code gave me 10% off, so my total was $15.66. I wear these out on occasion, but mostly these are in my nightstand for when I want to watch TV or read in my room.
I waited until a promo to order again, which was right after Thanksgiving. This time the promo was buy 2, get 1 free, so I decided to get each of us a pair. We all picked out frames that were $9.95, Katie picked #281125, Sophia picked #297216, and I picked #281221. We got the free lenses, added the $4.95 anti-reflective coating, and shipping was again $4.95. Cost for all three pairs : $34.75. Can’t beat that! We took these on a recent trip so that our nice glasses for school wouldn’t get lost or broken. We all love the pairs we picked out. I’ve also been wearing my pair on a daily basis just because I like them so much.
We have only worn these minimally, but have held up well so far. They aren’t really fancy, but they are still nice frames and lenses that get the job done – we can see! This is a great, cost-effective way to get glasses, either as a main pair, a back up pair, or a pair or two to wear for different occasions.
