Get a pair of prescription glasses for free

Did this year’s insurance changes find you without vision care?
Or does your plan only pay for one new pair of glasses a year and that’s not enough?
We found a site where you can get a pair of prescription glasses for free!
Coastal.com offers the first pair free to their customers, you just pay shipping and taxes.
Not every pair on the site is eligible, but there are hundreds of choices for men, women and children.
Frame selections on the site spans a vast array of designer brand names including Guess, Umbro, 7 for all Mankind, Lily Pulitzer, Armani, Burberry, Michael Kors and more.
The site offers tools to help you determine the fit and you can virtually “try them on.”
Bear in mind that you need to have a current prescription which includes a bit of data you may have to call the last place you had purchased glasses from to obtain.
At checkout enter the promo code “FIRSTPAIRFREE” and you’ll only pay shipping and tax.
Our total on the test pair we ordered was $12.75.
