Glasses Direct logoGlasses Direct 2 specs £22 plus free £10 tint*Combine blagged code with two offers for spec-tacular deal

1 day left

If you use our MSE Blagged code MSE22APR on top of two existing offers at Glasses Direct* before 11.59pm on Sat 30 Apr (it was due to end on Wed 20 Apr, but has been extended by Glasses Direct), you can get two pairs of glasses for £22 (including delivery), plus a free £10 tint.

Here's what to do:

1. 2for1 on prescription glasses £55 or over. Glasses Direct has a range of frames priced from £55, which are currently on a 2for1 offer*, so you get the cheapest free. Once you pick your frames (Boutique frames are excluded), you'll be asked to choose your lens package. If you don't want any extras such as scratch-resistant coatings, you can avoid the extra costs by clicking on 'continue with basic lenses'.

2. Free sunglasses dark UV tint for one or both your specs (if you want it). Select the dark tint in brown, green or grey (it usually costs £10 but it's free until Sat 30 Apr). Other types of tint such as polarised or transition are not included in the offer.

3. Code gets £33 off & free delivery. After adding the second pair to your basket, you can either enter your prescription or opt to send it later. Then use the code MSE22APR at the checkout by 11.59pm on Sat 30 Apr to get an extra £33 off ANY glasses where individual frames cost £55 or more (before the 2for1 discount). It's not valid when you spend £55 or more on several cheaper frames. Delivery is free with the code (normally £3.95). If you copy and paste the code, make sure there are no spaces either side of it as this can prevent it from working. If you're still having difficulty, try clearing your cookies and starting again.

Combining these offers could get you two pairs of glasses or sunglasses for just £22, plus free delivery. What's more, the second pair doesn't have to be the same prescription as the first, so you could get one for yourself and one for someone else. You can't combine this offer with the Boutique offer below.

It's worth noting that if you need bifocal lenses you'll have to pay an extra £30, and it's an extra £49 for varifocals.

Orders for very strong prescriptions are excluded, such as when the combined SPH and CYL is greater than +/-8.00, when the CYL is over +/-4.00, if there is more than a 5.00D difference between each eye or if the prism correction is over 4.00 in any direction.

Or, if you're looking for designer frames...

There's also a separate Glasses Direct offer where you can get 25% off frames in the Boutique (designer) section of the site. Simply enter the code MSE25OFF until 11.59pm on Sat 30 Apr. You can combine this with the free dark tints offer above but not with the 2for1 offer. 

More info

Single vision lenses are free with all orders. Other lenses and lens packages can be added at an additional cost.

Light cosmetic, polarised and transitions adaptive tints are not included in the offer.

Specky Four Eyes logo£10-£33 Otto, Superdry & Converse specs*MSE Blagged codes for prescription glasses. Incl lenses & del

Limited stock

MSE Update 3.05pm Thu 14 Apr: We've received feedback from a number of users that they've been waiting for their orders since March. If you're still waiting for yours, have enquired with SpeckyFourEyes and haven't heard anything back yet, then email us at msedeals@moneysavingexpert.com with your order number and we'll chase it up for you.

Online glasses retailer SpeckyFourEyes* is offering discounts of £29-£77 off selected prescription glasses and sunglasses if you go via our special link and use the codes below. You could get a pair of glasses for £10 all-in.

Delivery's included when you use these codes, and takes 7-15 working days. Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra. 

Key need-to-knows for getting cheapest price before you start

  • The codes are valid on the frames via our SpeckyFourEyes* link only. Don't use the search or filter 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.
  • Pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package, rather than one of the 'Specky' packages, which include thinner and scratch resistant lenses and cost £9-£125 extra.
  • You can either enter your prescription during the checkout process, or opt to send it later. Some frames aren't suitable for high prescriptions, so keep an eye out when choosing (sorry).
  • When asked to choose a delivery option, select 'Royal Mail Standard' at £4.99. The codes get you free delivery, so the cost will be taken off the final price. 

How to get the specs

If you use the codes below, you can get frames from £10 to £33 including delivery. There is a code for each designer, which will work on all of its specs via the specific link above. 

  • £10 Otto glasses -  £29 off £39 glasses using the code WARM10
  • £11 Andrew Actman -  £28 off £39 glasses using the code WARM11 
  • £22 Converse glasses - £77 off £99 glasses using the code WARM22
  • £33 Superdry glasses - £66 off £99 glasses using the code WARM33
  • £33 Goldigga glasses - £66 off £99 glasses using the code WARM33
  • £33 Oasis glasses - £66 off £99 glasses using the code WARM33

Prescription sunglasses deals include:

  • £15 Otto prescription sunnies - £34 off £49 sunnies using the code WARM15
  • £21 Andrew Actman prescription sunnies - £28 off £49 sunnies using the code WARM21
  • £32 Converse prescription sunnies - £77 off £109 sunnies using the code WARM32
  • £43 Golddigga prescription sunnies - £66 off £109 sunnies using the code WARM43
  • £43 Oasis prescription sunnies - £66 off £109 sunnies using the code WARM43 
  • £43 Superdry prescription sunnies - £66 off £109 sunnies using the code WARM43

It's tricky to compare prices for these exact frames, as many of them are end of line and aren't sold elsewhere. Always try to compare prices with similar glasses before you buy, though.

This is an ongoing offer. Although SpeckyFourEyes says there are good stock levels available, all frames are subject to availability, so they could still sell out fast if demand is high.

More info

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.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

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.
