I have wore contact lenses since I was 13 years old. WAY back in the day, you got one pair a year, and you had this little heat zapper thing to clean them. Eventually I wore daily wear, and threw out the contacts each night. LOVED IT. Until I developed an allergy or something to it and couldn't wear those anymore.
So I have worn 2-week wear ones for several years. It is fine. I usually order a full year of contacts so I can maximize discounts. If I order the contacts through the doctor...it is $30 a box!!! So I typically search the internet and order from various places. Same contacts...way cheaper. Usually around $20 a box. And if you are a new customer, you can find a coupon code for further discount.
Well, I think I have run out of "first time customer" deals. I went to sites that I was pretty sure I had never ordered from....and sure enough....years and years ago I did order from them. Bummer.
I can find $5 off codes. MAYBE a 10% code if I am lucky. But there is a pretty good chance that I will be paying more for my contacts this year than in years past. PLUS, my brand doesn't have a rebate offer this year (sometimes you get a rebate if you order a full year....but not this year).
I am completely out of contacts, and wearing my glasses, which need to be replaced anyway. So I need to decide today where I am ordering from. I am hoping that I can find one last place that is new to me. But it ain't looking good.
If you wear contacts....where do you order yours? I have already hit VisionDirect, ACLens, Lens.Com, 1-800-Contacts. And a few others. And what do you spend on yours??
