The Best Things In Life Are [Kind of] Free

While scrolling through Reddit a few months ago, I came across a promotional ad from Coastal that offered a pair of FREE glasses. That’s right, I said FREE! And they did my prescription for free too (probably because it’s a very light Rx).

I was skeptical at first, but other Redditors and bloggers said it was a legit offer and all you need to do is pay for shipping and handling & insurance. I didn’t get around to claiming that offer then since it expired before I had a chance to look at all the face candy. But as luck would have it, I saw the ad on Reddit again last month and told myself I wouldn’t miss out! I checked out all the wayfarers they had to offer because that’s my favorite style (in case you couldn’t tell from past posts). I know wayfarers are considered “hipster” but what isn’t these days?

After about 2 hours of decision making (yes, it took me that long to decide) I picked out a pair of Derek Cardigan glasses (style 7008 in ‘Smoke’). They’re a translucent shade of grey (1/50 shades <– horrible joke), and they have these cute multiplication and division signs on either side, as well as equal signs on the stems. I’m horrible at math, I absolutely hate it, so it’s like I literally have a contradiction on my face when I wear them. And the fact that I’m Asian and am stereotypically supposed to rock at it is somewhat sad. But it’s okay, I still love them!

Unfortunately, it took FOREVER for them to get here. I know it’s not Coastal’s fault (I blame the FDA  for holding all the FedEx packages ransom in Memphis), but don’t you hate when you order something and it doesn’t come right away? I love getting packages, even if I know what’s in them. It’s like opening a present on Christmas! Coastal saw that my glasses were taking FOREVER to get to me, so they re-sent them and I finally got them on Monday!!!

Coastal also sends their customers glasses in a nice case with eye glass cleaner, a wipey-thingy, and a little screwdriver to tighten and loosen glasses as you please. My optometrist has NEVER hooked me up like this. And instead of paying $106, I spent grand total of $17.38. Saaaa-weeeeeet! I think it was totally worth the wait. 🙂

If you would like to get your own free pair of glasses at Coastal, use the code FIRSTPAIRFREE at the checkout. There’s no expiration date listed, but you should get on this offer ASAP anyway! They also have a promotion to get two pair of glasses for $89 + free shipping with the code 2FOR89. I’d be all over that but 1. I’m poor and 2. all the money on my next paycheck is going to Disneyland. *le sigh*

As you can see, I’m ridiculously ecstatic about my new glasses! And if you know me, you know I have a tendency to misplace my glasses all the fuggin time, so having a spare pair is like the greatest thing ever. Anyhow, I tried to get Rory to take pictures with me for this post, but he was NOT having it. He’s such a bumhole sometimes. I managed to get ONE decent shot though.

Cheers,
Nina
