ReglazeMyGlasses logo£10 off replacement lenses at ReglazeMyGlasses*MSE Blagged code gets basic new lenses for £10

Order by 31 Jan

Getting new glasses can be expensive, however if you're happy with your frames but your lenses are damaged or your prescription has changed, you can send your specs to ReglazeMyGlasses* to get your lenses replaced.

The price you'll pay depends on which lenses you have (standard 1.5 index starts from £19.90), but we’ve a code to get £10 off all lenses.

Here's how to get it:

  1. Ask for the free ReglazeMyGlasses information pack*, which includes a box to post your glasses in, and enter the code MSEOCT14 to get £10 off your total order. It's for new and existing customers. You must order your pack by 31 Jan 2015. You can send up to two pairs per box, but the code takes £10 off per order, not per pair.

  2. Post your glasses (max two pairs) in the box provided in the pack - postage pre-paid - including a copy of your prescription, and once received by ReglazeMyGlasses, you will get a call to discuss your requirements.

  3. You only pay if you then decide to use it. If not, your glasses will be returned for free. Feedback on previous deals has been good – see the Glasses feedback discussion.

  4. Standard delivery’s free (allow 10 working days for your order). There are more expensive delivery options which include insurance - if you have pricier frames, this might be worth considering as you're relying on Royal Mail to ensure you get your frames back in one piece. 

 

What lenses is it valid on?

The code's valid on all lenses such as bifocals, varifocals, tinted and polarised lenses (See the full price list). The normal price for standard 1.5 index glasses is £19.90 so, if you go for the most basic lenses, you'll pay £9.90.

How does it compare?

The cheapest price we can find elsewhere online for basic replacement lenses is £15 at Ciliary Blue and Direct Sight, while on the high street it's £39 at Specsavers.

Specky Four Eyes logo£10 Berkeley specs, £24 Henleys, £71 Ray Ban*Prescription glasses & sunglasses. Incl lenses & delivery

Limited stock

Online glasses retailer SpeckyFourEyes* is offering discounts of between £22-£66 on selected prescription glasses and sunnies if you go via the special link and use the codes below. One code gets you glasses for £10 all in.

Delivery’s £4.99 and takes 7-15 working days. You can only use one code per transaction, so if you want to buy more than one pair you'll need to place separate orders.

How to get the £10 specs

There are five styles of Berkeley*, currently priced at £39. Use the code SUMMERMSE34 to get them for £5, plus £4.99 delivery.

  • £59 Henley glasses for £19 using the code SUMMERMSE40

Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra. To get the very cheapest price just pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package. Some frames aren't suitable for high prescriptions, so keep an eye out when choosing (sorry).

Important! The codes are valid on the frames in the link above only. Don't use the search options on the left-hand side of the SpeckyFourEyes page, as these will take you away from the special offer page and the codes won't work.

SpeckyFourEyes says there are good stock levels available but be aware, all frames are subject to availability, so they could still sell out fast if demand is high.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a secret phrase that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. "Section 75" laws means your plastic must protect anything you buy over £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust you can still get your money back.

Although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards there is something else to fall back on if you paid on a Visa debit or electron card, or Visa credit card under £100 (otherwise go for Section 75). Known as Visa Chargeback, this is part of Visa's internal rules and not a legal requirement. Full details of Section 75, chargeback and how to claim in the Section 75 Refunds guide.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link.
