2 pair of prescription glasses, including titanium frames, for £20.95 delivered by Goggles4U

Found 10th Feb 2015
There is always some kind of deal at Goggles4U, but it hasn't been posted for awhile. This time it is two pairs from their £15.95 range for the price of one, plus postage, which comes to £20.95 all in. Includes lenses, anti-reflective coating and post. The code is 2ndfree. Alternatively you can have two pairs from the £6.95 range for a tenner plus post, £15 all in (code 2for10), but I think the extra £5.95 is worth it for a better range of choices. These take less time to arrive than they used to.

These prices are for distance or reading glasses. If you want bifocals or progressives they are available but the cost is a lot more. You can also pay more for thinner, light-weight lens materials, tints, etc.

I don't think you can use both codes on the same sale.

what is the quality like? I'm always a bit dubious about this sort of company.

do you know if this covers the other ranges too?

The quality is fine. These are end of range clearances from other sources, so the choice is not as wide as a full price high street optometrist's, and the fashions may be dated. But there are excellent frames available, maybe not in all sizes. I mostly buy the titanium ones, like these:

Be careful entering your prescription, especially watch the plus and minus signs (+ -), they are important. I have bought many pairs of specs from this company, driving, reading, VDU, and they have always been optically perfect, but if you enter the wrong prescription, they won't be.

The 2cndfree code covers the £15.95 and up range, but not frames they designate as "designer" If you buy frames at different prices the cheapest is the free one. The 2for10 code covers only the £6.95 range, very limited choice.

You can chop and change all you like, enter codes, remove them, until you see the price you are after before committing- make sure you sort out the postage addition- it will come to a fiver but you need to enter your post code and tick a box before it shows in the total.

A little help please, I wear glasses everday, I only take them off to sleep, so long and short distances etc... are these progressive lenses? Getting a bit confused with the prescription type on the website.

Current codes at the moment are 2FOR10, for 2 pairs of £6.95 frames, 1.57 CR single vision lenses, anti-scratch coating and UV protection. Another is 2NDFREE, buy one get one free £15.95 frames. £5 postage is added on top to the UK.

I commented the other week on Ask about Goggles4U (listed a few more of the frames I have from G4U): hotukdeals.com/tag…705

I've made a first order at Zenni Optical recently too, to see what they're like (Zenni are a bit funkier and have a better website). I've ordered some sunglasses and glasses from G4U too, that are on the way (the scalloped cat eyes below). But G4U have a few Zenni frames as well.

A few examples: zennioptical.com/111…tml

(Now OOS, alternative here): goggles4u.co.uk/ins…tml

(Edit: Tortoiseshell version on Coastal, by the looks of it, for $89, around £50!) coastal.com/pro…ell

And a pair I bought a few months back from Goggles4U for just over £10 delivered (spring hinges as well, same as the scalloped cat eye frames!!):

Packages from Goggles4U have a UK address on the label, for those wondering about customs charges: never been charged yet, and I've made six orders so far. Apparently drop-shipped from Pakistan to the UK, takes around 10-14 days.

Feeling very ripped off by high street optometrists when I see these prices.

Goggles4U seem to get scathing reviews online from some but I've been very happy with them. I must have around 14 pairs now...just as good as the Specsavers glasses I pay £100+ for!

My first order was a disappointment as I didn't get the higher index lenses I paid for (one pair were thinner than the other) but Online Chat resolved it quickly, told me to keep the original thicker pair, and sent a new pair gratis.

You can buy single vision lenses at these prices, either reading glasses or distance. The site has bifocals and progressive lenses available, but the cost will be a lot more.

They offer all kinds. If you want reading glasses, just select that prescription type from the drop-down box when you enter your prescription.

Lol @ titanium frames.

I don't see the joke. Do you not believe they are titanium? It isn't just a colour name, they are made from the metal, lightweight and strong. They have frames made from other materials too, of course.

Well they are. I have bought many pairs from Goggles4u, about half of them titanium frames.

Ordered 2 pairs of the £12.95 ones, I thought they looked a fair bit nicer. Cheers OP, heat.

I have used Goggles 4u 3 times now, and each time they are perfect.
shipping is fast too, under 2 weeks.
I can send invitations if anyone wants, not sure if you receive anything extra ?

I must admit, I'm not sure about the titanium frames on offer, if the Designer selection is any indication. If you view their Designer brands, versus the frames on Eyewearbrands eyewearbrands.com/des…es/ you start to have doubts. G4U's designer selection looks very like their cheaper styles. http://www.goggles4u.co.uk/designer-glasses.html

I got a pair of "Vivienne Westwood" sunglasses frames from G4U about two years ago: burjoptical.com/med…jpg but typing in the model number got me nowhere, couldn't even source them online! They were dirt cheap, so not too fussed.

I also read that someone took their G4U designer (think it was Calvin Klein) glasses to a High Street optician that stocked the same brand, and they were fake!

Edit: Actually, it was on this very site. hotukdeals.com/dea…053"A friend used this site and the CK frames he bought turned out to be fake. Only found out when he went to Vision Express who let him know."

ozbargain.com.au/nod…336 (bottom of the page): "Bought a pair from Goggles4U 3 months ago. The lenses (distance only) were good quality, but the frames were rubbish. As for 'designer' labels - some should tell them that RayBans is spelt Ray Bans. I don't mind buying fake copies provided I'm told that they are fake. These guys are passing them off as real."

My advice would be to stick to the non-branded frames on Goggles4U.

Another Edit: I have found most opticians aren't too keen to give out your PD (pupillary distance), though Specsavers were fine at my last appointment. It's easy to do yourself.

"FREESHIPPINGUK" Voucher gives £3 discount on £5 cost....hardly free then!

Still a good price for some cheap specs though.

So how do you decide if one of these looks good on your face? Seriously, I'm unclear if the saving is worthwhile given the number of hours a pair of glasses get used for.

deeky

No.




Have to agree.

These will see you through the week

There's a thing on the site where you can upload your pic and try on the frames that way. You could spend £20 on a couple takeaways that last <2 hours, or get 2 pairs of glasses to last months/years.

Ordered cheers OP.

I have never used Goggles4U before, I've usually used Specy4eyes. But for £20, you cant complain really.

Thanks

Have some heat. Ordered from them before came in a week and they are great. £18 and that included £3 postage!

I've place an order earlier for 2 pairs. Websites down now tho. Always wary ordering specs online but for the price I'll chance it
