You Don't Have to Pay a Lot for Glasses

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of my friends just ordered some new glasses and sunglasses from Zenni Optical.  She wanted me or Jeffrey or Cory - one of us - to order some too.  They were offering free shipping on orders over $50, and her two pairs of glasses didn't qualify.  That's right, she was ordering two pair of prescription eyeglasses, one of them sunglasses, and her total was less than $50.  Unfortunately, none of us could help her out because Cory already has two pair of glasses, I already have two pair - including the pair I paid too much for at a local eye doctor, and I don't want to talk about! - and Jeffrey couldn't decide which ones he wanted.  So she had to pay Zenni Optical's regular $4.95 shipping.  It was still a really good deal.

I had a pair picked out -

Maybe.  There are lots of cute frames available at Zenni Optical, so the hardest part is deciding which one (or two) to order.  If you think getting cheap eyeglasses means you have to give up on style, you'd be wrong!  The only thing you're giving up is the over-large price.  The last time I ordered glasses from Zenni Optical, I paid about $10 for a pair, and I loved them!  And, I got lots of compliments on them, too - to which I usually responded, "$10 at Zenni Optical!"  This pair I like here is $29.95 - that includes the frame and light 1.57 index single vision lenses.  Now that I need bifocals, they'll cost a bit more, but they're still a lot cheaper than I could get them anywhere else.

How does Zenni do it?  No middlemen, no retail overhead, and practically no advertising budget,(they leave it to satisfied customers to spread the word).  They do not pay for or sell expensive, or even inexpensive, brand names, but only their own manufactured brand ZENNI.  They're high quality glasses anyone would be happy to wear.

I believe in saving money any time, but with the current economy, it's extremely important. Glasses are something that, if you need them, you need them.  You can't just not buy them.  But why should you have to spend a fortune? You could use the money you save on something else you want or need, like groceries, a night out, or a new pair of shoes!  That's why any time somebody mentions needing new glasses, I refer them to Zenni Optical.  Why pay a lot for glasses if you don't have to?  By the way, the free shipping on orders over $50 is still going on, so if you need new glasses...
