I’ve mentioned before on my blog that EyeBuyDirect has made me a customer and I have on several occasions referred friends, family, strangers to go check out the website and give them a try. Well… I now get to give one lucky reader a $30 Gift Voucher from EyeBuyDirect.com. $30 was about what I spent on the first pair of glasses that I purchased from them. You can’t use this on their designer eyewear or sunglasses, but there are A LOT more frames to choose from.
Honestly when I first looked into buying glasses online, I thought that I didn’t have much to lose. The prices were so inexpensive and if I came away with a pair of frames that could get me buy for a few months, I’d be OK. The pair that I purchased in December 09 are still in great condition and I have purchased a pair of tinted frames from them since then.
A very cool app that they have on the site is called “Eye Try.” You can upload a photo from your computer or even take a picture from your webcam and then virtually try on the frames. This isn’t rocket science on the web, but what is wild is that I’ve never been able to see what I’d look like in new frames anyway. I am so blind without my prescription that if I go to a store and look at frames, I can’t actually see what I look like in them.
They have a great selection of frames. Frames for all ages and styles. The prescription I got was dead on. The service was unbelievable. Yeah, I didn’t get them in under an hour, or even 24 hours, but come on. Getting a nice pair of glasses for under $40! I’ve never done that.
So… How can you win?
Here are the details:
