Save money on
eye glasses by purchasing them at a
store like Costco. Walmart also has good prices, but you have to be careful when
you order glasses. Not all eye glasses are created equal, and difficult
prescriptions need skill and expertise. Check the reputation of any store
where you plan to buy glasses.
Make sure the store where you
purchase you glasses honors the warranty of the glasses. If the frame of
your glasses falls apart after one week, it is a manufacturer's defect.
Costco will refund the money, but when it happened to me, Sears told me I should
have purchased the "extended warrant." I will never buy glasses from Sears
Here are some frugal tips to save money on eye glasses.
- Eye glasses come in different
sizes, even for adults. Knowing your size makes selection a lot easier and
they will look better on you.
- Bring a friend with you or ask
for help choosing eye glasses. If your vision is poor, it can be difficult
to see yourself well enough to tell if you like them.
- Some glasses come with snap on
sun shades. These are very convenient and save money on prescription
sunglasses or other protective eye shades.
