EyeBuyDirect: review and giveaway CONTEST CLOSED

Ok, I had some problems with getting a winner on this one as lots of comments in there were to congratulate me with the Blogs of Note. Some had nothing to do with the giveaway, so I deleted those.
Random Integer picked a number:

And the winne is VickieB.  Vickie, I've send you an email to confirm.
Thanks all for your kind words and entering my giveaways!
====================================================
Both my husband and myself wear glasses and as you all know getting a new pair of glasses can be very expensive (even with insurance). After finding out about EyeBuyDirect, I now know I spend WAY too much on my previous pair. I had the fantastic opportunity to review this amazing company EyeBuyDirect. 
This company has  hundreds of  frames to choose from: from Designer frames to Rimless, to Fashion Bifocal glasses, and even Sunglasses, the options are endless. 
And they start as low as $7.95!

I selected the Mara frames in brown and I love them. I didn't know what to expect quality wise but I shouldn't have been worried. The quality is excellent, the frames really light and I just love my design! 
The thing I was hesitant about initially is that I didn't want to buy these frames "blind". EyeByDirect has a great solution for this called Eye Try, this feature lets you download your
picture, you add your frame to it and voilà, you've just tested your frame. If you don't like your frame you just keep looking until you've got the one just right for you! It's great!
I have prescription eyeglasses so with my prescription in hand I entered this info in my order and my glasses are just perfect! 
My glasses arrived in a hard plastic case with a cleaning cloth and 2 vouchers for 5% off on the next order (hey, I'll take it)

Some facts on EyeBuyDirect:
* they make online prescription eyeglasses affordable and accessible to everyone 
* you save at least 70% on your new glasses 
* you get the same high quality glasses as in a store 
* you can use EyeTry on any of their frames 
* easy & convenient way to buy glasses 
* 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
* free shipping over $99

Here's my EyeTry picture (I bought my frames at night so the picture is a little dark) and my picture with the real frames.
Something else I really like about this company? They have a special deal:
For every five new customers you refer to EyeBuyDirect.com you will automatically be sent a coupon voucher worth $60 , in addition to 20 loyalty points per customer. I can not let this opportunity go by.

If you add this code IFMG8VG8L9 when you order, you get 10% discount and I get 20 rewards points that I can then save towards a new pair of glasses (WIN-WIN)

And now what you've all been waiting for, I have a giveaway!
EyeBuyDirect has very generously offered to give away one free pair of eye glasses ($100 value) to one of my incredible readers! (Please note this is with the exception of designer eye wear and sunglasses.). Are you excited or what???

In order to have a chance to win this, you need to head on over to EyeBuyDirect and do the following (these steps are really easy, I can guarantee it)
1.) post your "Eye Try" photo to the Wall of Frame
2.) add a comment to the Wall of Frame, to any of the people of which you think the frame works really well 
3.) let me know which Eyeglass frame you would choose if you won + a link to your EyeTry photo

Additional entries (separate comment for each)
* follow my blog
* follow me on twitter & tweet about this giveaway (let me know the link & username)
* fave me on Technorati
* add my button to your blog, let me know the URL
* blog about this giveaway linking back to EyeBuyDirect and my blog (3 entries, leave separate comments for each)

The deadline for this giveaway is 5/10/09 midnight PST and the winner will be chosen by Random Integer generator, emailed and posted at this post on the 11th.
US entries only.
Good luck everybody!
Thanks EyeBuyDirect for this fantastic opportunity, I'm a big fan!

I like the MODO1

I'm not sure if these were supposed to be in one comment or separate. Most of the blogs have made them separate comments.

Thank you for this information it is very useful! I wear both contacts and glasses and only get $200 per year with insurance to pick one or the other but now I afford to get both! Thank You!

Jocuri said...

Thanks for the information.

Rodrigo Feijó said...

you're amazing... congratulatios.

Sounds like a good deal. Glasses are so stinkin expensive. I wear hard contacts and had not bought glasses in a long time. Boy, was I in for sticker shock the last time I bought new glasses. Now I need an update, but I don't wear them all day long so I am having trouble letting go of $250! (that's what it cost me last time.)

Thanks for having the giveaway.

My Eye Try was hysterical! I couldn't get my photo to size, but it is the only photo I have on my comp. cause I recently had a crash and lost all other pics. BUT, I got the best laugh from it. Check it out:
