Free Pair of Glasses via Coastal.com

Free Pair of Coastal.com Glasses

This freebie was originally posted on October 22, 2012 and is still available.

If you’ve never placed an order with Coastal.com, you should know that you still qualify for a free pair of regular frame prescription glasses (all you pay is shipping, which should come under $15). I think it’s one of those inalienable rights the Founding Fathers bestowed upon us, along with freedom and the ability to throw away green beans whenever you want because they’re gross.

It’s not just for adults either! In addition to almost 400 pairs of free adult frames, they have 39 eligible ones for children as well. Just in time for school too, so no more “Mom, I’m failing math because I can’t see” excuses. I know that one worked wonders for me from the 5th to 7th grade.

Free Pair of Glasses

In order to get a free pair of Coastal.com glasses, you need to:

  1. Click the link above, then click “shop free glasses” on the left.
  2. Pick your glasses from the available frames and enter coupon code FIRSTPAIRFREE at checkout.

The code should work through the end of the month and note you’ll need to pay shipping, but the glasses themselves are free.

You can also use the code to get an additional 10% off any upgrades. If this is your first time buying glasses online, then have fun looking like an idiot in front of a mirror. It’s totally worth it though. I’d been wearing the same broken pair of glasses since high school, so it was hard passing up an $80+ free pair of glasses like this!

    thanks much.  need a new pair.  do you know if there are restrictions on the frames and if progressive lenses are included?  Thanks.

  • trophylady

    Won’t work for me, says it won’t apply coupon and wants to charge me full price.

  • Goob

    Sorry to hear that. Do you know which frames you are trying to buy? This won’t work for luxury frames.

    I talked to one of the ‘optical specialists.’ She said it “As long as the frames you’ve selected does not state, “Luxury Frame”, then it would be eligible for the promotion. Here’s the link for the eligible frames.  http://www.coastal.com/glasses/cCouponEligibleGlasses.html At this time all the PINK FRAMES included in this link are luxury frames to pave way to the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.

    @TheRunnerDad Cool, hope you both enjoy the new glasses!

  • rblgoalie1

    Pretty sure it works for any of the glasses that are eligible for the ‘get your first pair free’ promotion which you can find by clicking on the banner on the main page or by going to the link below. Not sure if it will work for non luxury frames that don’t happen to qualify for the promotion.

    Thanks!! My 4 year old son needed a back up pair & thanks to this he is going to have a new pair that are transformers!!

  • Stephanie

    Another alternative (that’s been cheaper for me) is http://www.ZenniOptical.com. They have free lenses and the frames start at $6.95. I recommend adding Non-Glare coating (their’s is good). Shipping is something like $4.95. I got my entire pair for less than $20 with shipping. Just posting to give you choices. :)

  • Rich

    got mine. $96 reading glasses for $16 delivered. Nice glasses! Thanks Goob!.

  • Susan

    I love Zenni! I have bought several pairs from them and have never been disappointed!

  • Susan

    I don’t think this will work if you need bi-focals.

  • alka

    i love zenni the glasses are good and durable.

  • Macy

    it is not really free, you have to select one of the whenever package cost minimum $29.95 plus shipping and handling and insurance, it cost you at least $60 at the end.

  • Christina

    Yeah! I don’t understand why this is happening… I have a friend who got hers completely FREE… but mine are coming up 39.99 because of the “mandatory” package selection. Ugh!

  • Lesley

    Maybe you selected additional stuff like polarized lenses. The shipping turns out to be $14.72. That’s all I had to pay and I orders mine yesterday. The promotion is still on!!

  • Lesley

    *ordered

  • Macy

    When either one of your eyes prescription is -4.0 or more, you will have to pay minimum $39.95 silver package Thin Air Lens…..

  • Jen

    I wasn’t able to get past the extra package either. My perscription is over 4.0 on both eyes. Total is $59.53. Any ideas?

  • Jen

    -4.0, I mean

  • twdavis

    Jen – Same thing here. I’m on the free selection page and have tried two different styles and after adding the code I get $59 or $127 for one pair. It’s crazy. Mine is -4. too, but this seems crazy. I even tried to contact the 1888 number and I’ve been on hold for a while. :( Giving up.

  • Maria

    Aw come on, green beans are awesome!

  • Mary

    It keeps telling me that the code doesnt work. its not valid. )=

  • Ashley

    Call the 888 number that they provide for further assistance. they can apply the discount for the code while you’re on the line and complete the order. really nice people that work the customer service line.

  • wholesale_girl

    This isn’t really a deal. I’ve got similar styles/quality from Zenni Optical and EyeBuyDirect by purchasing the $6 pairs they sell and using a coupon for less than $12. Coastal wants to charge $17 something for shipping plus a handling charge, when in reality it costs about $3 to ship it – this is where the money is made :).

  • rio

    no deal here. it’s advertised free, but it’s not. sure shipping cost but then when you have to pay for the lens choice forget it. deceptive advertising, so for this reason I will not order from coastal

  • Muddy

    You’re wrong. I’ve worked in the eye industry for 16+ years. Their basic lenses, for prescriptions up to +/-3D are completely free. They advertise an additional charge for AR coat, but actually all lenses come with the AR coating. I would know – I’ve ordered two. If you have an rX over 3D, you may want to upgrade to a thinner lens, but you don’t have to. All I paid for was shipping.

  • Muddy

    order in a plastic frame, and you shouldn’t have an issue with the prescription being too thick. If your frame is large, there is almost no way around this, but a smaller, plastic frame will suit an rX even to 6, not too badly.
