GlassesUSA Offers Customers Generous Discount On Prescription Glasses During Sale

GlassesUSA is keeping prescription eyeglasses affordable. Staying in line with their philosophy of ensuring eyeglasses are an affordable necessity and not an expensive luxury, GlassesUSA recently launched a new marketing campaign for their customers. The newest campaign is aimed at selling a selected portion of their most popular, fashionable eyeglass frames at a discount to their customers.

Unlike many retailers who keep their sales under wraps and hidden in the dark corners of their websites with special landing pages in hopes that customers will not use the discount, GlassesUSA launched their “Autumn Sale 2009” campaign first via email to customers who signed up for their seasonal newsletter. After the successful email campaign was launched, GlassesUSA launched the promotion on their website – inviting customers to take 10% off any of the selected eyeglasses.

The final steps in the promotional campaign launch was reaching out to bloggers and affiliates in order to get the word out about the 10% discount. The campaign was well-received among bloggers and those running coupon and discount sites.

GlassesUSA, a company that endured many changes recently including moving their shipping outfit to St. Joseph, Michigan, is an international cooperative group with offices in New Jersey as well as Tel Aviv, Israel. The company believes that vision care should be within arms reach and that high-quality eyeglasses should not cost a fortune. In conjunction with their business philosophy, GlassesUSA established efforts for their customers to not only recycle broken glasses but to donate old and used eyeglasses in order to ensure that those around the globe who cannot afford eyeglasses will receive them free of cost.

Since launching as a company, GlassesUSA transformed into an organization committed to philanthropy as well as consumer education. Their customers have a blog available to find the best ways to keep themselves informed on anything new in the vision world. GlassesUSA also reaches out to its customers with creative and innovative ways to save money – such as their Autumn Sale 2009.

GlassesUSA Helps Customers During the Economic Crisis

As the economy slips from bad to worse, many Americans put major purchases on the back-burner and hold off on massive investments until a sale arises. As the economy slips from bad to worse, many Americans put major purchases on the back-burner and hold off on massive investments until a sale arises.

Unfortunately, health care has become one of the major investments that Americans do not want to sink their money into. GlassesUSA is aiding people all across the United States during the latest economic crisis by making eyeglasses affordable as vision care has generally be regarded as a luxury – even in times of economic prosperity.

GlassesUSA is hoping to change the world of vision care and eyeglasses by providing customers with “quality eyeglasses at affordable prices” and with the best possible customer service. The cooperative group has turned into an organization committed to philanthropy and education.

It is always reaching out to its customers with new and innovative ways to save money.

Across America, most optical stores mark up their eyeglasses from 300% to 3000%. A pair of eyeglasses that would cost about $15 (US) to make can cost upwards toward $350-$400 (US).

Many chain stores that sell eyeglasses will contest this amount but insiders in the optical industry agree that a 400% mark up is indeed the correct number. Normal markup is 50-75% to cover the costs of the frame, some overhead, and a set percentage for profit. However, designer frames – which are generally the most sought-after – cause a massive jump in cost creating a domino effect that makes no name brands more expensive.

The cost of prescription eyeglasses does not always include the cost of the eye examination. What most Americans do not know is that when you get an eye exam, your eye doctor must – by law – give you a copy of your prescription when you leave the office. GlassesUSA can then fill the prescription online and send you your classes within a weeks time.

Committed to providing customers with discount eyeglasses, GlassesUSA offers discounts to various universities, colleges, military personnel, union members, organization members, and customers who search the internet for deals. They also work in conjunction with the Unionville Lions Club in a partnership that helps preserve sight for those living in impoverished regions of the world. Customers can simply send an old pair of eyeglasses to the Unionville Lions Club – specifying they would like purchase new eyeglasses with GlassesUSA as part of this deal – along with their email address. Once the glasses are received, the customer will receive a discount code good towards their next pair of prescription eyeglasses.

As Americans look for cheaper accessories for their wardrobe, eyeglasses have become aninstant hit for those who do not want prescription frames. Those not wanting to spend $200 (US) on clear-lensed eyeglasses for fashion purposes are turning to the internet andGlassesUSA for help and saving hundreds in the process.

Sunglasses are a popular purchase online as well. Prescription sunglasses can cost around the same as prescription eyeglasses but to add polarized lenses can cost more. GlassesUSA assures its customers that they are getting the best possible deal on sunglasses as they would get on eyeglasses. All sunglasses come with polarized lenses. It is recommended that customers add on the anti-reflective coating to the lenses.

All prescription and non-prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses go through a vigorous “5-stripe” quality assurance process to ensure customers that their glasses have beentested to exceed FDA standards.

GlassesUSA announced a partnership with the Lions Club this week

GlassesUSA announced a partnership with the Lions Club this week. The partnership will consist of taking used eyeglasses and returned prescription eyeglasses and donating them to the Uniontown Lions Club.

The partnership is a new development for GlassesUSA as it hopes to change the way people view eyecare and eyeglasses. Vision care has long been a luxury in the United States as opposed to a necessity. Lions Clubs all over the United States have taken to the streets to find old and used eyeglasses in order to produce a wearable eyeglass frame with new lenses. The new eyeglasses are then given to those who need them most – people who cannot afford eyeglasses.

GlassesUSA is proud to be a part of such a union. Eyeglasses returned by customers will be sent to the Uniontown Lions Club for collection. The glasses will then be recycled and sent to a re-manufacturing plant. From there, new lenses are manufactured suited to fit the needs of the future wearer. The eyeglasses are then sent to the people who need them the most.

As part of the partnership, GlassesUSA will give customers who donate their used eyeglasses a 10% discount on future frames with the presentation of a receipt from the Lions Club. Those interested in sending in their frames should send them to:
Uniontown Lions Club
C/O Bob Kendall
81 Pontius RD.
Mogadore, OH 44260

Once customers have sent their glasses in along with their email address, a receipt will be given to them via email. In order to receive the discount, the customer must email the receipt to support@glassesusa.com to receive the coupon code.
