2 Pair of Glasses for $29 at Vision Works!

Vision Works is offering 2 pairs of single vision glasses for just $29 through 09/30!  They also have progressive glasses on sale 2 for $69!  This is valid only on specific frames.  When you shop in-store you’ll see a sticker on the ones that qualify.

I did this deal last month for each of my 3 kids.  There’s no catch, I promise.  We walked out with 6 pair of glasses for only $87.  This is far better than what we’ve paid in the past using insurance.  I was worried about them not being able to find frames that they liked, but they had a large selection and everyone left happy.
