Cheap Sunglasses, ummm, Glasses!!

"Now go out and get yourself some big black frames
With the glass so dark they won't even know your name
And the choice is up to you cause they come in two classes:
Rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses..."

Who doesn't love ZZ Top? Or Cheap Sunglasses? (The song & actual cheap sunglasses!) How about just cheap glasses? I recently picked up a pair of cheap glasses (there's no song called "Cheap Glasses", so work with me here!) - and I gotta say, I'm pretty darn pleased with them.


Have you heard of 39dollarglasses? They've been around for awhile - and as a matter of fact, this isn't my first purchase from them. Over the past several years, I've purchased 4 pairs of glasses for myself (reading, distance, & progressive lenses), and a pair each for Buddy and Lulu. So this makes my 7th purchase from them!

Did I pay $39? No. They had a $20 off coupon that I took advantage of - and even with shipping added, I ended up paying just $23.99!! Now that's a deal!! And it included a hard case, microfiber bag (that doubles as a cleaning cloth), a little purse-sized microfiber cloth, and a tiny double-sided (flat-head & Phillips) screwdriver for repairs/tightening screws.


You choose a frame, type in the information from your current eyeglass prescription (eyeglass prescriptions are valid for 2 years), pay, and your glasses will arrive in a few days. Easy!! Also, when you make your first purchase, you're automatically enrolled in their "reward" program, where 4% of your purchases are deposited into your account - and you can use these points for future purchases!

They also have a worry-free guarantee:
"At 39dollarglasses.com, we offer a 100% Worry-Free Guarantee (certain lenses excluded*). Our objective is simple: to make sure every customer has a wonderful experience purchasing from us. If you are unhappy for ANY REASON you may return your eyeglasses for a full refund on your original order (except shipping, which is not refundable) or a one-time exchange at no cost. (Exchanges for higher-priced items will only be charged for the difference in price). We even provide FREE return shipping."

Worried about whether or not the frames will look good on you? No worries! You can print actual-size frames, cut them out, and try them on - or you can upload a picture of yourself and "try on" frames online!

I ended up getting the Pasadena frame in brown. I also have also purchased this frame in the past (with progressive lenses). This particular frame does not have spring-hinges, but I only wear them for a couple of hours a day here at home, so they don't get a lot of wear and tear.


So if you're looking for a place to purchase inexpensive glasses, I recommend checking out 39dollarglasses!
