Note: I tested this and it is working as of Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012, 10:15am. After applying the promo code, my price went down from $104.54 to $16.54, the cost of shipping and handling.
Coastal Contacts runs this deal periodically where new customers can get a free pair of glasses, including frames and 1.5 index lenses. It’s absolutely legitimate. Many Charlotte on the Cheap readers have gotten glasses through this deal other times it’s been posted. I got a free pair of glasses myself. Some frames might not be eligible. They’ve just announced a deal for free glasses for new customers.
Once you’ve selected your frames and entered your prescription information and shipping address, use the promo code FIRSTPAIRFREE . All you’ll have to pay for is shipping and handling (around $12), and any extras you choose for your glasses, like scratch-resistant coating or tinting. The deal is for 1.5 index lenses. If you need something else you’ll pay extra. Only certain frames are included in this deal. Typically there are many to choose from, though. The link takes you to the frames that are eligible.
If you have a complicated prescription, that won’t be covered, but you can always just put a basic prescription in it and at least get the frames for free, or you can pay extra for what you need. It will still be a great deal. New customers only.
Just follow the instructions on the webpage. Use the coupon code: FIRSTPAIRFREE.
