FREE Prescription glasses from 7/27


Posted on : 27-07-2011 | By : Trish | In : Daily Deals, Free Stuff

It’s time for the FREE Prescription (or fashion) glasses giveaway again! Coastal Contacts has made it a regular thing to give away thousands of pairs of glasses. The frames and standard lenses are FREE, but you do have to pay for any upgrades (thin lenses, tinting, bifocals, etc.) and shipping. The shipping and insurance for my son’s new specs, which he loves, by the way, was about $15. The giveaway starts at 9am (EST) tomorrow (7/27).

Here’s what you do:

  1. Get your prescription information and PD measurement from your optometrist or the last place you bought glasses. If you don’t have this information, enter all zeroes in the prescription fields, complete your order, then call customer service and ask them to hold your order until you can get the info.
  2. Like on facebook.
  3. Click on the FREE Glasses tab to get the code. (Okay, I’m cheating. The coupon code is FREEGLASSES727)
  4. Go to and choose your frames. Frames marked “coupons not applicable” are NOT included, but there are thousands of frames (including designer) to choose from. Be sure to pick out a couple of frames in case your first choice sells out fast.
  5. Load everything in your cart, entering your prescription, payment, and shipping info, then type the coupon code (FREEGLASSES727) into that box.
  6. Starting about 8:50 am, keep hitting submit until it goes through. The site may get super slow if you wait until 9:00. If you get in on it late, you may need to have a couple of backup choices because some styles sell out quickly.

If you don’t actually need prescription glasses, but want a pair to spice up an outfit, you can enter zeroes in the prescription fields to get clear lenses.  Remember, this giveaway is for first time participants and there is a limit of ONE per household. Even if you ship to another address, they will apparently cancel your order.

I got a pair for my son that came with clip on tinted lenses and he loves them. I’ve had several friends and family members take advantage of this offer and they are all happy with their glasses. My aunt didn’t like hers when she got them, and they exchanged them with no problem! They have excellent customer service!
