You might have noticed some new advertising here at Travel with Kevin and Ruth. We were contacted by the Firmoo.com online optical store, and they asked if we wanted to review and advertise their company. The only way to do that is to try out their product, so they agreed to send us each a new pair of prescription glasses. The neat thing is, every one of our readers gets a free pair of glasses too!
You know we tell things like they are, so right off the bat I have to mention the fine print. But it's pretty simple. You have to pay the shipping costs and this offer is only available to new Firmoo customers. You can even order sunglasses if you wish!
It was a pretty easy procedure to order online. Of course you should have a fairly recent prescription, and so we had gone to the optometrist while we were in England. Then, on the Firmoo.com website, you create an account. Then, go shopping and choose your glasses!
Regular prescription glasses are priced between $8.00 and $58.00 ($USD). You can choose any frame you want for your free first pair, except for the "designer" frames.
Because we are traveling, we had them ship our glasses to Sam and Donna's here in St. Louis so that they were waiting here for us when we arrived. But they ship almost anywhere in the world. For the U.S., it's only $6.95 for shipping unless your order is over $39, then shipping is free. Oh, and every order (including your free order) comes with a hard case, a cleaning cloth, and a tool kit with extra screws and pads.
You can get inexpensive, good quality eyeglasses, and help us out in the process. Yes, we make a small commission from every pair of glasses that you order and pay for. Just visit one of the Firmoo.com advertisements here on our blog, or go directly to their website via the following link...
So, how are our new glasses?
