Remember how I talked about my sweet sister in my bad razor burn post? Well now I am going to tell y’all how smart she is. For years she has been telling me about a website she uses to order cheap glasses. It sounded REALLY sketchy to me years ago before I was even comfortable with purchasing items via the world wide web. I’m an old, paranoid soul.
But as it turns out, the site is legit! I have had a dozen friends recommend them, and even Clark Howard, the financial guru guy has raved about this place. It’s Zenni Optical. Have you heard of it? Were your scared to use them? Skeptical? Well worry no more because this site is the way to go!
Here’s what I did. First, I went in to my optometrist’s office and asked the receptionist to please print out my prescription. I was a little nervous she would give me attitude about it, but she pleasantly handed it over. Whew! The hardest part of this process was over! Then I brought it home, I went to http://www.zennioptical.com/ and picked out my new frames. I decided to go with their “Geek Chic” style, and instantly fell in love with these. Did you see that price?!?! $12.95! The shipping price isn’t bad either at a standard $4.95. So for less than $18, and one week later, I got these bad boys!
But before Zenni’s could send my glasses on their merry little way, I had to put in some simple information for my prescription. It’s just a few numbers for each eye and the website is incredibly user friendly. It completely walks you through the process to make sure you are getting the right stuff. My prescription came out perfect, and I am so happy to have a cheap second pair of glasses, heaven forbid one of my cute chilluns breaks a pair!
*I am not receiving any kind of payment from Zenni by writing this post. I simply just love what I paid for and wanted to share with y’all.* Have you used them before? What was your experience like?
