Save Money On Eyeglasses; a Few Free Kindle Titles
We've been doing this for about five years now- my prescriptions and my son's have all come from online stores, for a savings of a few hundred dollars over the course of the last five years.
With my last eye exam, I asked the eye doctor to check my glasses and see if the prescription was accurate, and it was perfect. We are very satisfied. We also know a pair of twins who each need a very strong and complicated prescription. This last year one of them paid the usual several hundred dollars for his prescription at the local optometrist, and the other bought his online for about 50 dollars. The glasses are great, and his envious brother says next time, it's online for him, too.
First, sign up for Ebates (it's free), and get 5 dollars credit with them, or a ten dollar gift card to Walmart or other stores.
Look up glasses. Glasses USA is currently running a few specials, a buy one, get one free deal, 12.5% cash back in your ebates account (and they will pay you cash when you get enough money in the account), free shipping, and more.
Zenni Optical, which a friend has used to her great satisfaction, is offering 4% cash back through ebates.
There are other online places- the above two places and 39dollarglasses.com are the ones I am familiar with.
Free Kindle Books:
Standard background information:
These books are free at the time of listing. This can change, so be sure to check the cost first before you download. Check carefully. If it only says free for Prime, it's not free unless you have Prime. I don't. (I love to hear from our readers, but I do not love to hear that a book listed here is not free because this tells me you did not read what I said and that makes me sad. On the plus side, it might even make me sad enough to eat chocolate, so there is that.)
You do not need a Kindle to take advantage of these offers. You can read them on various free reading apps. I often read mine on my laptop if they are short enough books, even though I have two kindles. That’s because my kids keep taking off with the Kindles to read their school books and they don’t remember to recharge them before returning. I wouldn’t say I’m bitter about it, but I might be a little disgruntled.
If you’re curious, this is the Kindle I have when the teen-agers have not absconded with it. I have used others and mine remains my favorite. Mine has Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi and I don’t have commercial screensavers. I love all of these features. When our grandson Striderling was in the NICU and I stayed there with him and his Mum because his Papa couldn't get off work immediately, my Kindle enabled me to keep the rest of the world updated on his progress. They wouldn't let me bring a cell phone into the NICU and text with it, but I could bring the Kindle and update FB, as well as play soothing music (I could have played unsoothing music if I'd wanted to, I suppose, if I'd used my earbuds).
Our second Kindle is actually one I was given in exchange for some writing work, and I gave it to my two teens. It does not have 3G, which is why it’s their Kindle.
I have tried the Fire, I didn't like it. If I'm going to have distracting colors, bells, or whistles, I just want an iPad or a Tablet, or whatever. You know, really *great* bells and whistles.
If you like these free listings, you should also like my Facebook page, because I list other free titles there several times each week, and you wouldn't want to miss a chance at free, would you? Plus, I post other fun stuff on the FB page, too, political links, and funny stories about my son that don't make it to the blog.
