Glasses Direct logoGlasses Direct: MoneySaving tips & tricks*Incl keeping an eye on offers on daily deals sites

Ongoing

New glasses can be expensive, but there are ways to save money at online glasses retailer Glasses Direct*, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.

Ways to save include:

  • Get two pairs for the price of one. Select the 2for1 from £49* option from the drop down boxes at the top of the home page, and you could get two pairs of glasses with basic lenses for £49. Delivery's £3.49.
     
  • Sign up for the newsletter. Sign up for the Glasses Direct newsletter to receive information about current promotions. Glasses Direct doesn't have any physical stores making its overheads far lower than its high street competitors, so it's worth keeping an eye out (sorry) for the newsletter and on its website to check for offers. 
     
  • Change browsers or use 'incognito' mode. Sometimes Glasses Direct might give you different offers based on what you've previously browsed - so if an offer you wanted has disappeared, try clearing your cookies, using another browser or enabling the do not track 'incognito' mode on your browser.

  • Check out similar retailers, eg, Specsavers, Optical Express and SpeckyFourEyes. If you're not committed to buying from Glasses Direct, check out our deals from Specsavers, Optical Express and SpeckyFourEyes, where there may be a better offer.

  • Want more? Find out more shopping tricks in our Shopping Secrets guide.

  • Had a problem with Glasses Direct? If you're not happy with the service, you can contact us at msedeals@moneysavingexpert.com, and we'll do our best to resolve the issue.

Expired Deals

Glasses Direct logoTWO pairs of prescription sunnies 36, or 2 specs for 16 code*Good for summer. Stack code with existing offer

Expired

Here's a spec-tacular summer deal... You can get two pairs of prescription sunnies for £36 delivered or two pairs of prescription glasses for £16 all-in, if you use our MSE Blagged code MSEJUNE16 on top of two existing Glasses Direct* offers before 11.59pm on Sat 30 Jun.

Here's what to do:

1. 2for1 on prescription glasses £49 or over. Glasses Direct has a range of frames priced from £49, 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 want sunnies, select 'sunglasses' then 'dark tint' which is £10 per pair. For glasses, just click 'continue with basic lenses'.

2. 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 MSEJUNE16 at the checkout by 11.59pm on Sat 30 Jun to get an extra £33 off ANY glasses where individual frames cost £49 or more (before the 2for1 discount). It's not valid when you spend £49 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 for just £16, plus free delivery, or two pairs of prescription sunglasses for £36 delivered as you'll be paying an extra £10 each pair for the dark tint. 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.

It's worth noting that 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 eye tests

If your prescription is out of date, check if you can get a free eye test

Check out our cheap glasses page for other glasses deals or if it's contacts you're after, take a look at our cheap lenses guide. Also it might be worth checking if you qualify for free glasses using NHS vouchers.

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.
