3 Ways to Save on Contact Lenses


I am always looking for ways to save on contact lenses since they aren’t included in our medical coverage. Here are a few cost-cutting ideas that have worked for me:

1. Take your prescription elsewhere. I usually have my eye exam done at the optometrist and then take my prescription for glasses and/or contacts to a discount place such as Walmart or Target for a better deal.

2. Price compare online before you buy. I recently came across 1-800 Contacts, and I will be adding them to my list of resources for great deals on contacts. 1-800 Contacts offers brand name lenses at competitive rates and makes it easy to compare contact lens prices online. They also offer a price match guarantee to beat any price by 2% (20/20 Guarantee) and free shipping on orders over $50! I also noticed that my favorite brand (Acuvue) features a $32 discount when you buy eight 8 boxes, which is a one-year supply.

3. Use a coupon code when purchasing contacts online. If you shop through Retail Me Not, new 1-800 Contacts customers can save 20% off an order of $125 plus enjoy Free Shipping! This is a deal! I can get a year supply of Acuvue for just $191.94!
