Recession Mama Michele Ashamalla: Have any of you bought glasses online? I am extremely tempted -- we have insurance that covers a portion of one pair, but anyone who wears glasses always needs a spare.
I've done a little research, and the prices are phenomenal! A couple of sites that get some good reviews online are:
- Zenni Optical. The customer service isn't the best, but some glasses are as low as $8 plus $5 shipping (which takes one to two weeks via USPS first-class mail). The glasses generally come from overseas and arrive in a padded envelope with a translucent plastic magnetic case.
- 39dollarglasses. One review said this was a great place to get a lens replacement for your frame, but there were mixed reviews as to the speed of shipping. The glasses arrive in a padded envelope with a high-quality case AND pouch.
My husband has a very strong prescription and he's pretty skeptical, but if I can save $200 on a pair of his glasses, I'm in.
