Due to a change in our eye doctor’s location last year, we had a number of issues with our eye insurance company. Though we worked out the details and received all our benefits, we did not have our eye exams until August.
Usually seeing our doctor at the beginning of the year, I was learning the sale schedules which I found much better during the summer. Choosing to keep our eye appointments around the same time, I scheduled both Mr. 9 and Miss 7’s appointment for the end of July.
They both did really well having their eyes dilated and wearing their snazzy glasses for the afternoon. Once again, Miss 7 has perfect eye sight.
Mr. 9’s glasses are doing well, and he had a very slight change to his prescription. Since we can continue to use his 2 pairs from last year as backups, we only need one pair of glasses for him this year.
As I considered where to purchase his glasses, I started with JCP Optical where we found the best deal last year. Once again, I was thrilled to find a similar deal. Though $5 more than last year, I still find $30 a great deal for a quality pair of glasses.
With our insurance company reimbursing for any pair of glasses up to $120, we will be purchasing a pair of the $30 kids’ glasses soon.
$30 Kids’ Glasses
The $30 Kids’ Glasses promotion at JCP Optical continues through September 15, 2014. This offer includes any kids’ frame up to $120, FREE impact and scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses, FREE UV protection and FREE eyeglass protection plan for any school-aged child 16 and under.
With only a tweak in Mr. 9’s prescription, we will have 3 pairs of glasses for him to use. If he had needed a brand new prescription, then we would choose to purchase two pairs at this price. We would only get reimbursed from insurance for one pair, but $30 for a second pair is worth the cost should he break the first pair.
TRACY’s NOTE: The FREE eyeglass protection plan means that you do not have to pay extra for the protection. However, should the glasses break and you need to use the protection plan, there is a $19.99 deductible for each repair.
This is why we chose to purchase a second pair last year to have an immediate backup. Our JCP Optical would need to send the glasses away for repair leaving the wearer without a pair of glasses.
While stretching our dollars, we will purchase the $30 kids’ glasses for Mr. 9. Upon receipt, I will submit to our insurance company for reimbursement. In stretching our dollars, JCP Optical helps us get the needed equipment while staying within our budget.
In using time wisely to research our options, I’m thankful for JCP Optical’s $30 Kids’ Glasses promotion which continues through September 15, 2014. Happy savings!
