    Apple's latest Apple Pay promotion is offering $45 off your next purchase from Ray-Ban, as long as you spend $180 or more on your current order. The offer is available on Ray-Ban.com through November 20, and customers who participate will receive the $45 as a gift voucher via email within two weeks of their order, which can be put towards their next order of $100 or more.

    To receive your credit, browse the company's website, add items worth $180 or more to your cart, and check out using Apple Pay. The offer is limited to one per customer, and the credit must be redeemed before December 31, 2018. Additionally, it can only be used on full-priced items and not sale items.

    Apple's promo email also encourages shoppers to look their best by shopping for the latest fashions and more at Bonobos, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Zara. All three iOS apps support payments through Apple Pay. The company also reminds users that they can split gift payments for the holidays by using Apple Pay Cash in Messages.

    The Ray-Ban promo follows a few weeks after Apple Pay offered similar savings from Oakley, where customers received a $25 Oakley coupon after they spent $100 at Oakley.com. Throughout the past year, previous Apple Pay promos have targeted retail partners like Under Armour, Postmates, Nike, and StubHub, and shoppers can expect more holiday-themed promotions to be coming in the next few weeks.

    This promo is pretty much hot garbage. Spend nearly $300 to get a $45 store credit? For sunglasses and sunglass accessories? I'd rather spend my money on propane, thank you very much.

    So do the glasses have Bluetooth or anything to do with connecting to your devices? Wait they are just suppose to make you look good? That’s debatable! I don’t look good most of the time anyway. I don’t think an expensive pair of glasses will change anything (puts on my prescription glasses)... right ladies?? Ladies??? See.. I knew it!

    I love my Ray-Ban aviators, but I agree, this deal is absolutely hot garbage. Who’s spending $180 on sunglasses and then another $100 on more later? Also, who pays full price on something like this?

    Deals like this show more and more that Apple only wants the “haves” and not the “have nots.” It will take some time, but it’s going to bite Apple in the ass.

    LOL... come on, they have deals for stuff all the time from all kinds of stores and at all price ranges. Earlier in the year they had one for free fries from McDonald's!

    For crying out loud...

    It doesn't work with some (not all) polarized lenses. Some (not all) RayBans have polarized lenses.

    Raybans are being produced in Italy by Luxottica - there are many nice documentaries about that. They produce spectacles for all major fashion designer houses that in turn sell the 10 USD frames for 4000% profit and margins.

    Lol, glad everyone else seems to feel the same as I do...
    My 1st thought was: “sooooo.... I just have to be in the market for a $180 pair of sunnies, & also need a 2nd $100 pair 2 weeks later for this to be worth it- seems like a slim audience!”.

    how though. the 'have nots' have nothing to spend and apple makes its money by actually selling stuff.
    Unlike other companies who profit from people's data not their wallets. The have-nots naturally would lean that way.

    For those of us who wear both prescription sunglasses and non-prescription sunglasses on the days that we wear sunglasses, this may not be so bad. The other scenario might be one of us buying sunglasses and the other needing sunglasses as well but can wait a little longer, this might not be so bad either. I do agree that this is not the greatest deal for most people.

    Actually I almost thought this was spam when I saw the email.

    Ray-Ban always seems to be the go to spam of choice. The spam calendar appointments (glad  fixed that), text messages, posts from compromised Facebook accounts...
