I’ve already said I’m a big fan of NPR. A few weeks ago they ran a story about the “Best-Kept Online Secret: Cheap Eyeglasses.” The author, tired of paying hundreds of dollars for glasses, tried out a few different online glasses retailers. 1
This weekend I ordered glasses from two different websites. (I’m going to hold off mentioning which ones for now. I’ll wait to find out what kind of a job they do.)
I ordered four pairs of glasses for much less than what a single pair used to cost me. If all goes well, I’ll be getting one pair of sunglasses, one pair of color changing glasses, one pair that looks almost identical to the ones I wear now, and one pair of funky glasses (this was the free one).
The trade-off is that the glasses will take about two weeks.
See you in two weeks!2
