EyeBuyDirect vs. 39DollarGlasses
39DollarGlasses offer stylish yet affordable frames for men, women and kids. Starting at $39, they’re currently one of the cheapest online eyewear retailers around. All their glasses are crafted in the USA, which means your order will be delivered quickly if you’re US-based, and they have a 100% worry-free guarantee.
Even though EyeBuyDirect deliver both nationally and internationally, they only offer free domestic shipping if you spend over $99. They also have a unique pricing proposition where the prices listed on the site are for the frames only. If you want advanced or even basic lenses, you will need to keep in mind the added cost as you’re shopping.
The company have an extensive FAQs section of their site where they discuss how to choose your frames and measure your Pupillary Distance, but it would help if these resources are a little more interactive. They do supposedly have an ExactFit try-on feature, but this is nowhere to be found. Plus, if you want a full refund for whatever reason, you have to cover the shipping costs.
EyeBuyDirect have a fashionable and affordable eyewear range. Their passion to make glasses accessible is apparent in everything that they do, from producing their frames in-house to offering their own innovative brand to donating to charities who share their vision. The EyeBuyDirect website is minimalistic and user-friendly which makes it incredibly easy to shop with them. It’s just a shame that their pricing policy isn’t straightforward and you have to spend so much to qualify for free shipping.
39DollarGlasses provide fashion-forward, designer-inspired glasses at a fraction of the price. They have a wide range of styles currently available on the site in different colours and designs for all the family. They also offer free domestic shipping, which is a great bonus, with international shipping costing only $12.95. However, it’s a shame that their “Help” section isn’t more interactive, and their ExactFit try-on virtual resource isn’t visible on the site. In addition, having their customers cover the shipping costs to receive a full refund doesn’t seem very fair.
