We are always told to protect our skin when staying out in the sun for long periods of time, but I never seem to hear all that much about protecting our eyes. It’s just as important! But I’m as guilty as everyone else out there – I’m really reluctant to buy nice, polarized sunglasses because I lose them so frequently.
So I was happy to come across FramesDirect.com. Not only do they have a HUGE selection of sunglasses, but they also carry prescription eye glasses as well as contact lens too! They have very competitive prices and often offer discount codes to make the deals sweeter. As a matter of fact, they have a few holiday deals going on right now:
Save $10 off eyewear priced $79 and above. Enter Code: HOLIDAY10
Save $15 off orders priced $129 above. Enter Code: HOLIDAY15
Save $25 off Rx orders priced $199 above. Enter Code: HOLIDAY25
FramesDirect was kind enough to give me a gift certificate to their site so that I could place an order and evaluate my experience. I have to start out by saying, I am quite impressed! I decided to order some new Oakley sunglasses for my Dad as a Christmas Gift.
The online account creation and order process was a cinch. I placed the order on November 10th and the next day, I received a personal email from a customer service specialist saying that the item I had chosen was backordered until December 10th. I was given the option to cancel the order or wait. I decided to wait.
Just by past experience with many other online companies, I expected the order to ship sometime after the 10th – but to the credit of FramesDirect.com, I received an email on December 10th with a tracking number stating that my order had shipped! Wow, they had nailed it!
When the package arrived just a couple days later, I was very pleased. Not only were the glasses in brand new, original manufacturer packaging very safely shipped in bubble wrap, but there was also an unexpected extra gift! An Oakley Lens Care Kit that includes a case, spray cleaner, microfiber cloth and a mini screwdriver. What a great little bonus!
So even though I had to wait a little while for my order to arrive (but hey, backorders happen – you can’t fault a company for that, but instead evaluate them on how it is handled!), the order and receipt process went extremely well and I couldn’t be happier. I totally recommend FramesDirect.com if you’re in the market for any kind of eyewear!
