Super Cheap Glasses – What else can you buy for £5 / $8?By James (SelectSpecs) - July 14, 2009
After several months of preparation we’re now excited to be able to offer an exclusive range of single vision glasses from just £5 (or US$8, AUS$12, CAN$10) complete with standard lenses, a FREE scratch resistance coating, full UV protection and anti-reflection treatment! We believe these are actually the cheapest complete prescription glasses available to buy online, just see for yourself when you take a look at this offer!
During our research for this fantastic offer we were really quite shocked by what £5 actually buys you in 2009 so in order to demonstrate what fantastic value our Super Saver Glasses are we’ve listed 10 alternative items you could buy instead of a pair of the worlds cheapest glasses!
1). Large Big Mac Meal
A large McDonalds Big Mac meal purchased in a UK city is unlikely to leave you much change from a £5 note.
2). A Gallon of Petrol
Us poor unfortunate souls in the UK are hit hard in the pocket every time we fill up our cars, at the moment £5 will put just over 1 gallon of petrol or diesel in your tank.
3). 2 Pints of Beer
For £5 you could get 2 pints of beer from a pub chain like Wetherspoons, of course this varies from pub to pub and the location.
4). A Bottle of Wine
Many of the well known supermarkets in the UK have a good range of cheap bottles of plonk available for less than £5 – Not quite sure how it will taste though!?!
5). A Packet of Cigarettes
A packet of cigarettes – your £5 note will be going up in smoke.
6). A Music CD
CD sales are dwindling due to ever increasing digital downloads, this means you can often find the latest album from your favourite artist for around £5 from various online retailers.
7). A Magazine and a Bar of Chocolate
A popular magazine and a bar of chocolate from your local newsagents will leave you very little from a fiver. A copy of the latest EVO automotive magazine now costs £4.20!
8). 1 Day London Travel Card
London has a habit of emptying your wallet rather quickly and the transport system doesn’t help either. If you’re an adult looking to travel around London for a day it will cost you £5.60 for a 1 Day, Zones 1-2 off peak travel card!
9). Movie Rental
A month of entertainment with a basic subscription to an online Movie rental service such as Love Film (2 Movies per month) will cost you a little less than £5 per month.
10). 50 Text Messages or 1/2 hour of Talk Time
£5 won’t last you very long if you’re a chatterbox or a ‘textaholic’ on a Pay As You Go mobile phone, your credit will probably need a top up after 50 text messages or 1/2 an hour of talking.
So What Glasses are on Offer?
This fantastic offer includes 10 frames from our NEW Savannah range – 8 full rimmed and 2 semi-rimless styles. Here are a couple of examples:
Choose from 8 full rimmed styles for just £5
Choose from 2 semi-rimless styles for just £8
If you are interested in this great offer we highly recommend that you get your order in as soon as possible as these glasses at such low prices are sure to sell out quickly!
*Limited stock available. A maximum of 2 items per order. See offer for further details.
