  • You don't need to pay a shade-load for sunnies – you can get a pair of either Barbour, Jasper Conran or Hackett branded sunglasses or specs for £33 delivered (normally £135), with the MSE Blagged code MSE33BHJ via our link at SpeckyFourEyes*. The code's valid until 11.59pm on Sunday 23 June.

    The code can only be used on the selected Barbour, Jasper Conran or Hackett items you'll see via the link above, and you'll need to enter it in the vouchers box on the 'Shopping cart - summary' page once you've chosen your frames and lenses.

    Need-to-knows for getting the cheapest price

    • To get them cheapest, pick 'continue with free lenses' when asked to choose your lens package (stage five of the checkout process), as thinner or scratch-resistant lenses will cost £10-£126 extra. To avoid other extras and keep costs down, click 'skip step & continue' until you reach the checkout.
    • 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. Do note that only standard lenses are included in the price, you'll pay extra for bifocal or thin lenses.
    • Select 'Royal Mail Standard' delivery – our code will make this delivery option free (normally £6.99).

    See 'More info' below for full T&Cs.

    MSE Georgia-May says:

    It's tricky to compare prices for these exact frames, as many of them are end-of-line and aren't sold elsewhere – but I reckon £33 all-in for a pair of branded prescription sunglasses or specs is pretty decent. They're normally £135 at SpeckyFourEyes, but when we checked on Thursday 16 May, we found some similar pairs from £40 elsewhere online. 

    SpeckyFourEyes might not always be cheapest, so do your own price comparison before buying. As ever, with branded items in particular, be sure to check reviews if it's a retailer you've not heard of.

    See our Cheap Glasses page for other deals on specs. 

    • You can use the code more than once but can only use one code per item, per transaction – so you'll need to make multiple transactions if you want more than one. The code gets you free delivery (normally £6.99) and takes 7-20 working days. Standard lenses are included in the price of the frames, but bifocal or thin lenses cost extra. 

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

      If you need to contact SpeckyFourEyes about your order, you can do so via this special contact page*

  • 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 30 June.

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

    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 30 June to get £49 off the varifocal lenses, a free second pair. 

    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 go online to glasses retailer Glasses Direct*, you can get 33% off when you enter the blagged code MSE33 at the checkout, until 11.59pm on Sunday 30 June. Delivery's free with the code.

    The code gets you 33% off your basket which includes all lens types, including varifocal and bifocal lenses, sunglasses tints, blue light reflecting lenses, thin lens, plus the bronze, silver, gold and platinum lens coating packages. The code is also valid on most frames, but it does exclude £9 frames and the Premium Designer range.

    What's more, if you choose a pair of glasses in its 2for1 from £49 range, you'll get a second pair of frames for free (excluding Premium Designer). These don't have to be the same lens type or prescription either, so you could choose the basic lenses for a totally free pair, or choose different lens types and get 33% off those, too. 

    Once you've chosen your frames and lenses, you can enter your prescription then, or opt to send it later. This offer won't work alongside any other discount codes or on items already marked down or on sale.

    Your order should be shipped within seven working days, but during busy times it may take up to 14 days to arrive. 

    See our Cheap Glasses page for other glasses deals.
