Best Time of Year to Buy Glasses
It’s already super affordable to buy glasses online, but you can get even bigger discounts by ordering them during a sale. We’re cutting to the chase and telling you the best time of year for eyeglass sales.
Before the school year, there are always sales on school supplies, apparel, and footwear. What some people may not know is that it's also one of the best times of year to take advantage of eyewear sales. Eyeglasses and blue light glasses are essential for students and teachers, especially when using digital devices and being under LED lighting all day. On top of the back-to-school sales in July and August, students and teachers can save even more with student and teacher discounts.
Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales offer steep discounts on everything from electronics to clothing to even glasses. Retailers will most likely advertise their glasses deals before the big days, so search for what you’re interested in beforehand. Whether it is in store or online, you’ll know exactly what to shop for once the sale starts in case any styles sell out quickly.
Other Holidays around the year with the big sales include Memorial Day, Independence Day (4th of July), Labor Day, and President’s Day. Whether they are just for the day or all weekend long, don’t forget to check for holiday sales.
The New Year
New Year’s sales are also popular for eyewear. At the end of the year or on New Year’s Day are great times to find deals on glasses. For those with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), in most cases, all of the money contributed will need to be spent before the year ends or else it will go to waste. So using the rest of the money during an end-of-year sale is a win-win situation.
