contest: glasses from clearly contacts!

12 Nov

I’ve been ordering contacts from Clearly Contacts for a couple of years now and I’ve had very good experiences with them. You can get a pretty good deal if you apply coupons or price match. If you want to learn how to get the best deal on your contacts or glasses, google for it and you will probably find something on the Red Flag Deals or SmartCanucks forums online. In my last order, they sent me a gift card for a *free* pair of glasses. Of course, it can’t be totally free so please read on.

The small print on the card:

* This gift card entitles you to one free pair of glasses from and is for single use only with no residual cash value. The free glasses include the frame and standard 1.5 index lenses. Upgrades for progressive and high index lenses, as well as Coupon Not Applicable glasses, are not included with this offer. Shipping and handling applies. First time customers only. Offer expires on December 31st, 2011.

Details are from

My details and explanation of the fine print:

While the frames and the 1.5 index lenses are free, you will have to pay for shipping & handling (about $13) and lens protection (glare, scratch, etc) if you want it. If you have poor eyesight, I don’t think you will be eligible for the free glasses as you will need to upgrade to a higher index lenses (sorry!). So to be eligible for the 1.5 index lenses, you should ideally have between -2 and +2 vision. I am -1.5 and -1.75 and I got the 1.5 index lenses. Additionally, a lot of the “designer” glasses are “coupon not applicable” but, if it’s an older style of that brand, you might be able to get it. So overall, you might be looking at paying $15 – $30 extra but it’s still a good price for new glasses.

Now here’s the contest entry details. I would like to get feedback on the blog and would like you to share it with a friend (or more!). Please leave me a comment detailing:

a) Your favourite post(s) so far and why?

b) What would you like to see more of on the blog (e.g. less Apple stuff, DIY, computer tips, travel, etc.)

And then share my blog’s homepage with a friend via email, Facebook, Twitter or whatever mode of social media you choose.

Contest closes: 12AM PST November 19th 2011. I will use a random number generator and announce the winner on the November 19th weekly recap. I’ll send the winner the promo code once confirmed.

    1) Most useful to me posts:
    – the jewelry cleaning post
    – the techie site post

    The shopping for free, craigslist and the dollar store ones were good reads.

    Although I won’t use many of the Apple ones right now, I think they may be useful to me later because I’m getting my mom an iPad for xmas and I’m contemplating getting an iPhone when the next one is out.

    I like the UBC ones too; didn’t know the shoppers didn’t participate in the advertised sales.

    2) I like the posts where there is a bit of a back-story… like when you have your own story to share (i.e. dollar store one, waiting in line for apple, shopping for free). But I guess they are harder to write.

    I don’t want to be entered in the contest because I won’t use the code. But I’ll share your blog!

    Hey! Apologies for the long delay, life can get pretty busy you know ;).
    Anyways, I read through a bit of your blog and I found some very interesting posts, a few that I found actually quite useful.

    -Prezi. I have gotten used to powerpoint presentations to the point where I find them boring at times. I like the way how Prezi is much more creative in presenting information, and someday this could come in handy for my next presentation assignment.
    -Whithpering xD nice.
    -SUPERHUMAN NIGHT VISION. Haha could come in handy.
    -All tech related posts (Im a seasoned tech guy so I find everything useful/great read)
    -Android apps! I don’t have an Iphone nor an android, but I will be getting the Galaxy Nexus soon and I am drooling at its awesomeness.

    -The amazing yet simple life saving tips like whithpering and superhuman night vision posts.
    -Tech stuff.

    Perhaps more posts about android? Anything you post about this could come in handy when I get the phone.

    I have to admit this blog is barely noticed by anyone, but I definitely will help share this blog to others. I’ll check on this blog every so and then and see what other cool posts you come up with.

    Thanks for all those tips! I also appreciate the promo code as well because I am truly in need of new glasses.
