The $39 Glasses Giveaway!

 If you didn't know, I happen to have horrible eyesight. In fact, after I take out my contacts, my glasses go right on and stay there until I'm in bed. It just so happens,I was recently contacted by John from $39 Dollar Glasses.com, asking if I'd want to do a review. He offered to throw in a giveaway for you all. Who could turn that down?























So I picked out my favorite style from their site (the "College" frames in black), and waited for them to arrive. I just couldn't wait to share this with you!


When I opened the package, I found that they included a nice, hard shell case, a soft carrying bag, a microfiber cleaning cloth, and a eyeglass repair key chain- pretty neat extras that I wasn't expecting. 



I have a pair of more "sensible" Ray-Bans that I wear every day, so I thought I'd have fun with this and get a style I really like but haven't been brave enough to try before. They're a little over-sized, in a cute, nerdy way. I instantly loved them! I figured they would be flimsy or cheaply made for the price, but they seem like they'll hold up just as well as my expensive pair.


The ordering was surprisingly easy, too- there were options for eyeglasses as well as prescription or non-prescription sunglasses. For prescription lenses, I just typed in the numbers from my exam. You print out a small ruler (you can also print out all the styles of glasses to try them on!), and measure the distance between your pupils. Done!

The only downside I found was the shipping speed, although I am told you can pay a little extra for expedited shipping. My glasses didn't pass inspection the first time, so they took a little longer. However- they ship FREE to active military no matter where they're serving, so I am totally on board with that. (They're also American made.)


So, rather than spending hundreds of dollars on a pair of glasses, you have two options.
1- Use the special code CHAMB for 10% off your order.
2- Enter this giveaway for a free pair!

The rules are pretty simple. Please leave a comment for each entry you complete, and leave your email address in your first comment. 

Mandatory entry: 
Like $39 Dollar Glasses.Com on their Facebook page.

Bonus entries: 
- Post one of my buttons on your blog. (If you already have, just let me know.)
- Visit their website, and tell me which style you'd pick if you won.
- Tweet once a day with a link to this giveaway, tagging me (@chambanachik) when you do.
-Share this giveaway on your blog. 
(Please don't tag $39 Dollar Glasses.com in your links or tweets. 
They specifically asked that this not be done, or those entries would be disqualified.)

Easy! Good luck to all of you. The contest will close September 10, 2011 at 9 pm central time (aka, the best time).

I really need a pair of prescription sunglasses because I will dorkily admit that I use clip ons to my regular sunglasses and they're getting old. I'd probably get the South Beach style in Burgundy
