The Good Life For Less: The ‘Eyes’ Have It

By Alison Lorge, WCCO

Time to take care of your eye sight! And boy — there are some great deals happening if you are short on cash.

CoastalContacts.com has been giving away 10,000 free pairs of prescription glasses for free from time to time over the past year and there’s another great give-away tomorrow (March 31) starting at 11 a.m. central time.

The catch is you have to hit the ‘Like’ button on their Facebook page to reveal a coupon code, then you can go to the website to pick out a pair of glasses. Place your order using the coupon code and all you’ll pay is shipping, which can run from $8-$15.

One thing to note: if you’ve gotten a free pair of glasses through Coastal Contacts before, you’re not eligible for this promotion. You should also have your eye information ready so you can get through quicker.

Another place that is offering a great deal on glasses is Goggles4U.com. Right now with the coupon code ‘slickdeal‘ you can get a complete pair of prescription glasses with coated lenses for $9 shipped (basically the same price as above). This deal runs through April 19, 2011.

Reseller Ratings (one of my favorite places to check if an online seller is reputable) gives them a 4 out of 5 stars, compared to Costal Contacts’ 3 stars. For that cheap, it may be worth the $10 risk.

If you know of any other deals, share them with other ‘Good Lifers’ in the comment section. You can also text WCCODEALS to 84816 for a ‘deals of the week’ reminder.
