I’ve been wearing reading glasses for about 1 1/2 years. I got my pair at a reasonable price through Costco (I think I paid around $80). Even at that price, though, I stress out a little bit about losing them or scratching them. The need for spare reading glasses is high for me, because I want to have a backup just in case my pair gets lost or broken and I need a little bit of time to save up the funds for a new pair.
I just learned about a really cool online shop called Reading Glasses Shopper. This site offers simple prescription glasses for under $20 a pair! I was floored when I saw their prices. I often wish that I had an extra pair of glasses in my office or in the car, and these would be so perfect to fill that role. I have never been able to justify spending another $80 for a spare pair, but $20 I can swing!
One thing I really love is that the glasses they carry are actually cute! My favorites are the Gracieand the Jennifer. And I really love the Katie sunglasses. Super cute, and oh-so-affordable! The shipping is very reasonably priced at $1.95, and if you spend $30 or more, it is free! That’s my kind of shopping! Returns are also a breeze. They offer a money-back guarantee within 30 days of purchase if you aren’t satisfied with your purchase (but I bet you will be!). There’s also no sales tax to pay (unless you live in Indiana).
Buy it!: If you wear glasses, you know that having a few extra pairs would be so nice. Buy some today at an affordable price without sacrificing style! Right now all styles are an extra 15% off!
