  • You can get two pairs of designer branded glasses from £25 if you use our MSE Blagged code MSEJUNE on top of an existing Glasses Direct* offer. The code also gets free delivery and 40% off silver, gold and platinum lens packages and is valid until 11.59pm on Thursday 30 June. Here's how to get the offer...

    1. Select two pairs of designer glasses from the 2for1 on designer frames offer. Glasses Direct has a range of designer frames from brands such as Scout, Polaroid, Levi's and DKNY. They're priced from £69, and are currently on a 2for1 offer, meaning you get the cheapest free.

    Once you pick your frames, you'll be asked to choose your lenses, some of which, such as bifocals and varifocals, will have an extra cost.

    You can then choose 'extras' for your lenses, such as scratch-resistant coatings – the code also gets you 40% off the silver, gold and platinum packages. Though here you can avoid any extra costs by clicking on 'continue with basic lenses'. You'll then be asked if you want to enter your prescription (you can also opt to send it later if you prefer).

    Once you've got the first pair of glasses in your basket, repeat the process again for the second pair. This doesn't have to be the same prescription as the first, so you could get one for yourself and one for someone else. Though this deal won't work on very strong prescriptions – see full details below.

    2. Use the MSE Blagged code to get £44 off & free delivery. After adding the second pair to your basket, use the code MSEJUNE at checkout by 11.59pm on Thursday 30 June to get £44 off ANY glasses where the frames cost £69+ (before 2for1 discount), and free delivery. In many cases, the code will already be applied, and the discount taken off your final purchase price.

    Different designers' frames are priced differently – when we looked on Monday 20 June you could get the following offers:

    • Two pairs for £25 (£69 each before the code) – Scout, Aspire
    • Two pairs for £45 (£89 each before the code) – London Retro, Harrington, Perri Kiely x LR
    • Two pairs for £55 (£99 each before the code) – Polaroid, Joules, MCQ, Puma, Levi's, Ben Sherman, Waterhaul, Mini, DKNY, Pepe Jeans, Le Coq Sportif, Cat, Tommy Jeans, Lipsy London, Champion
    • Two pairs for £75 (£119 each before the code) – Finelight

    Check out our cheap glasses page for other glasses deals. It might also be worth checking if you qualify for free glasses using NHS vouchers.

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

      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.

      If you need bifocal lenses you'll have to pay an extra £39, and it's an extra £49 for varifocals.

      This deal won't work on very strong prescriptions

      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.

      Free 'Home Trial'

      Glasses Direct offers a free 'Home Trial' service, where you can choose some frames to be sent to you, so that you can try them on at home and see if you like them. It's told us that as long as you order a Home Trial from your account before the code expires, Glasses Direct will honour the code up to a week after it expires.

      You don't need to buy the same frames that you tried, but if the code's expired you'll need to call Glasses Direct to place the order. You can call it on 01793 746601. Find full terms and conditions here.

  • If you go online to glasses retailer Glasses Direct*, you can get a pair of varifocal lens glasses from £49. Simply enter the blagged code MSEVARIFOCAL at the checkout, until 11.59pm on Sunday 31 July. Delivery's free.

    The code gets you free 'Varifocal Advanced' lenses (norm £49) when you choose a pair of frames priced at £49 or above, plus free delivery. 

    What's more, if you choose a pair of glasses in its 2for1 range, you'll get a second pair with basic lenses free (excluding Boutique). You'll only get the free varifocals on one pair. 

    Here's what to do:

    1. Find frames costing £49 or more. Glasses Direct has a range of frames priced from £49, and you can choose any (including Boutique frames) then click 'Select lenses'.

    2. Choose 'Varifocal Advanced' lenses. You'll be given a list of five different lens options. Select 'Varifocal' and then 'Varifocal Advanced' (it says these cost £49, but once you've entered the code at checkout, this will be taken off). See 'more info' below for other lens options. 

    Select 'clear' for transparent everyday glasses. 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. Code gets £49 off, free second pair & free delivery. Once you've selected your lenses, you can either enter your prescription or opt to send it later. Then use the code MSEVARIFOCAL at the checkout by 11.59pm on Sunday 31 July to get £49 off the varifocal lenses, a free second pair and free delivery. 

    If you don't need varifocals, see our Cheap Glasses page for other glasses deals.

    • With the code, 'Varifocal Elite HD' lenses will cost an extra £30 (norm £79) and 'Varifocal Supreme HD' lenses will cost an extra £50 (norm £99). 

      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.

      The majority of single vision orders are shipped within 7 days from order date, though during busy times this may extend up to 14 days. However if your prescription is more complex or you've chosen extras, it could take longer.

  • If you're a new customer to online contact lens retailer Vision Direct*, enter the MSE Blagged code MSE11 to get 11% off everything on site. Delivery's £3.98. It can't be used with other offers.

    Vision Direct may not always be the cheapest retailer, even with the code, so make sure to always do your own price comparisons.

  • You can get a complete pair of varifocal glasses for £45 at Asda Opticians*. The price includes value frames, lenses, anti-reflective coating, tints and thinner lenses (if required).
