Just a reminder that this awesome deal ends tonight!
Coastal.com, an online eye wear company, is offering a fantastic promotion until July 31: Get your first pair of glasses for FREE if you’re a new customer when you use the code FIRSTPAIRFREE at checkout.
Sounds a bit too good to be true (Will the frames be junk? Will they make me look like a dork?). Since I have the eyesight of a freaking eagle and my husband got himself some Lasik, I asked Laurie, one of our contributors, and her husband to try out Coastal.com.
Is there anything possibly less fun than losing one’s glasses? Hmm, maybe having to navigate to the optometrist without said glasses to pick out, order and pay full price for new glasses. Absolutely zero fun. So when my husband lost his last pair of glasses, and our insurance informed us that they would not be paying for a new pair until November, we thought we would give Coastal a shot.
A free pair of decent glasses seems a bit too good to be true, but even James was able to quickly find multiple frames he would be comfortable wearing out in public. I might note that this is a man who is pretty particular about his glasses, and his running shoes, and the color of shirts he prefers to wear, and what he enjoys for night time snacks, but I digress…
Ordering from the Coastal website was a breeze and transferring his prescription information into the order was a quick process. We paid the shipping charge, which was much less than taking our family of five to Burgerville for lunch. The time it took to complete the order start to finish was quicker than one episode of “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.” Ask me how I know that.
We received an order confirmation the same day and a shipping notification the following day. Estimated delivery was six days, but since they are shipped from the Pacific Northwest, they arrived in just three!
Here are some shots of James in his new glasses, Sharp, right?
Overall we are very pleased with the quality and ease of ordering from Coastal. We saved a ton by trying out a pair for free, and would definitely consider ordering from them in the future!
Success! I love it when I force one of my contributors try out a deal and they are honestly jacked about it.
I simply can’t believe how many frames they have to choose from with this promotion. There are 27 pages of options! And there are some expensive brands available — some up to $128!
And Coastal has kids frames included in the sale as well! There are some really cool ones — both understated and some funky colored ones!
