I’ll give you a little insight into the world of product-related blogging. I get a lot of emails from people wanting to pitch their product or company. Most do so politely in a private email. Some spam up the comments. Nine times out of ten I say no. Well, more like 99 out of a 100. But 90 of those are companies selling male enhancement pills. The other nine are legit companies offering quality products but I feel they just don’t fit in with what we do here at getbetterglasses.
And that one out of a hundred is a good company offering a nice, relevant product. The last new company I mentioned was glassesusa (click to see my glassesusa post). That was more than a year ago. I’m still loving their glasses and still wear them every day, by the way.
So here is today’s company: lensway.com. They sell deeply discounted designer glasses as well as some very cheap house brand glasses. Until now, I have seen companies offer either very inexpensive own-brand eyewear – ala eyebuydirect, 39dollarglasses or much more-expensive (but still nicely discounted) designer eyewear like bestbuyeyeglasses. glassesusa caught my eye with their more mid-range self-branded glasses. Lensway is catching my eye because they are the only retailer i’ve seen combining designer and mid-range generic eyeglasses. Prices start at about $35 (realistically $65 with thinner lenses and all the coatings) but range all the way up to several hundred for a fly pair of Gucci. They have mid-range designers like Oakley as well.
Since they are the new kid on the block, they’re offering a generous 25% discount. This offer will be around until the end of the month. I don’t know if it will get extended or not.
Please report back and comment with your experience if you end up ordering from them.
