I recently got a random e-mail offering a coupon for $38 off a pair of glasses; and intrigued, I checked out the website that had sent it. It's called 38 Dollar Glasses, and I can't recommend it enough! If you go on there, you'll see a promotion code that you can use at check-out to get $38 off your order.
I've been wearing glasses since I was eleven years old, and I've never had more than one new pair at a time. Whenever I went for my yearly insurance-provided check-up, I picked out new frames, and that one pair of glasses would have to suffice until the next check-up. (At my age, I think I can only get a new pair of glasses every two years--unless I want to pay the full shot myself.)
As anyone who wears glasses knows, even with insurance paying part of the cost, they are so expensive. By the time you pick out the designer frames, choose polycarb lenses, and add a scratch-resistant coating, you're probably paying well over $100 out of pocket--and that's WITH insurance!
So anyway, I thought I'd check out this site. The coupon deal was amazing--it said I could get $38 off any pair of glasses, even those that only cost $38 to begin with. Are you thinking, "There is no such thing as a pair of glasses that costs $38"? I was thinking that, too, until I checked out 38 Dollar Glasses and saw that they really do have some frame choices that are that cheap.
Taking a huge risk (because choosing frames without trying them on first is a real crap shoot), I settled on a style by Adrienne Vittadini (which was more than $38, of course). For those frames, with high quality single vision lenses and a scratch coat added, the total cost was $44.96 (and that's with $9.98 shipping & handling factored in!). You just can't get a better deal than that. And now, for the first time in my life, I have two pairs of glasses with my current prescription in them, and I can go back and forth between the two styles.
Here are my $38 glasses. What do you think?
