i have been looking for a new pair of eyeglasses for a while and finally had an eye doctor appointment and got a new prescription, etc... i always planned on just buying them cheap online via 39dollarglasses.com or zennioptical.com or something similar. then we drove by a lenscrafters and stopped in and i found a pair of frames i love. the problem was that by the time i got the frames and the lenses they wanted almost $600. the frames are only $160 of that. $300 i was OK with, $600 was outrageous in my opinion. when i got up to leave, the next thing you know, the manager comes out and starts to try and cut a deal. "oh, you can get the AAA discount, and we will do this and that...." which ended up dropping the price down to $350. when i considered the whole used car salesman routine it just felt not right - kind of left a slimy taste in my mouth. so, i did more shopping around at more retailers and come to find out that the $350 price for those particular frames plus the lenses was actually typical (i have a strong prescription and need hi-index 1.67 lenses which are pricy). This actually got me more wary of lenscrafters as it seems like they try and sucker you into spending a couple of hundred $ extra for no reason, unless you balk, then they try and cut a deal. anyway, i ended up getting the exact frames i wanted and the hi-index lenses, etc. online from bestbuyeyeglasses.com - should be here in a week or two. so, i am curious - is this typical lenscrafters behavior? and anyone else get glasses online?
