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 clearlycontacts.ca 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  www.clearlycontacts.ca/giftfree

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.
