Previously, I posted about buying contact lenses online, and hopefully all of you out there with less than perfect vision are making a habit out of this. I’m always on the lookout for the best deal I can get, and with contacts lenses you purchase on the Internet, you often have to hop around different stores to take advantage of whomever is offering the best price at any given moment. I probably have accounts at 4 or 5 different online stores for this reason.
In addition to Lens.com, which I talked about earlier, I found another decent contact lens stores, so I wanted to mention it. The store is Contact Lens King. This is one of the few stores I’ve found that have links to mail-in rebates you can take advantage of. So they are definitely worth checking out. They might not have the lowest price for every brand of contacts, but I find them to offer great prices overall.
I looked online to see if I could find a Contact Lens King coupon. The only one I could find was for free shipping, which I found at http://coupons4contacts.com. Oh well, I guess Contact Lens King isn’t that big on offering online coupons, but that’s okay – They still make my shortlist of good online contact lens stores.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I find that the majority of video games these days eat up a good amount of time. For example, when I first started playing World of Warcraft, it took me 2 weeks to decide whether or not I wanted to get a monthly subscription. And during those 2 weeks, I was pretty much playing every single day. I guess my point is that in order to really judge whether you like a video game, it can take some time.
Given this fact, I have no idea why the free trial for gamefly is only 10 days long. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Gamefly, it’s an online service that lets you rent out games and have them sent to your home. Now, don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that they give a free trial at all, as many online services won’t do that. But 10 days? It would be nice if the current gamefly free trial offer lasted for a full month, like the one at Netflix.
In fact, at one point Netflix wanted to get into the video game rental market. I personally would have liked to see this happen, but they abandoned those plans last year. So for now we only have Gamefly. I don’t mind, because it’s a good service, but a little competition always helps to make all services raise their game.
With that said, I must admit they do have some good commercials, like the one below -

Today I want to talk about contact lenses. I’ve been wearing them for years, and I used to buy them at the doctor’s office for something like $100 a box. One day a few years ago it occurred to me I might be able to buy them online, so I Googled “Contact Lenses.” To my surprise, there were tons of stores in the results, and what’s more they were selling my lenses for about half the price I ordinarily pay. Needless to say I jumped on board. Over the years the store that I’ve come to like the most is Lens.com. The reason for this is that you can get a Lens.com coupon here which will give you something like 15 – 25% in discounts. Mind you, this is on top of already pretty low prices. I think the most popular store out there, however, is 1800-contacts. They have some partnership with Walmart, but I’ve found they are not the cheapest. For me personally, using a lens.com coupon from http://couponanything.com has worked out the best for me.
One of the habits I’m trying to kick is smoking. I don’t smoke a whole lot, but I do smoke about a half pack each day. Not long ago I read about e-cigarettes online and I’m seriously thinking about giving them a try.
Here is the thing, however. The starter kits cost around quite a bit of money, and for this reason I’ll probably do a bit more research before I take the plunge. I looked online to see if I can get a v2 cigs coupon and fortunately, they allow me to get an extra 15% off starter kits.
The main thing that makes me hesitate is that I’ve never smoked an e-cigarette, so I have no real idea what I’m getting into. If I end up not liking how they taste, that startup kit that I invested my money in could just wind up sitting in my closet.
The best v2 cigs coupon I could find was available at http://e-cigsmokers.com and it gave me 15% off. If anyone knows a better coupon that’s out there, let me know in the comments section. Also, if someone can tell me whether these things are just like smoking the real thing or not, I’d appreciate it.
