OK so they weren’t exactly free, I did have to pay Shipping and a Handling Fee but I am very impressed with how fast these came. I got my Glasses in just 6 days! For those of you that missed the deal Coastal Contacts offered 10,000 Pair of Free Glasses last week. This is a frequent sale that they run so I thought I would try it out and give you my opinion. Plus, I really needed new Glasses.
Here’s how it works… Before the Sale you want to have 2-3 styles picked out. Then Make sure you know your PD measurement because you’ll need that when placing your order and often the site runs really slow right when the Free Codes are released. If you’re on of the first 10K to complete your order you will get your glasses and basic lenses FREE! You just pay Shipping and a Handling Fee.
Here’s how my glasses worked out. I didn’t get glasses the last time my prescription changed because I wear my contacts 90% of the time and it wasn’t worth the cost. Well I went to the Eye Doctor again a few weeks ago and my prescription had changed a second time so this was something I really needed. I was going to pay $58 + Tax to get the lenses changed on my existing glasses and over $100 for a basic pair of glasses at the Eye Doctor.
At Coastal Contacts I paid:
Vera Wang Frames, $118 – FREE with Coupon Code
$9.95 in Shipping
$8.60 in a Processing Fee
$18.55 Total for a Brand New Pair of Glasses that arrived in 6 days!
I actually could have selected to get the Recommended lenses and that would have been an additional $24.95 but since I only wear glasses at night when I’m reading then I thought I would try the regular lenses first and see how they turned out. Even if I had chosen the recommended lenses that would have only been $43.54 for a complete pair of glasses which is less than having my current lenses changed out!
Here’s how to get your Free Glasses:
Head over to Coastal Contacts and choose 3-4 Frames that you like. Look for the ones that don’t exclude coupons.
