If you’re new around here, you may not be aware of this awesome opportunity to snatch up a free pair of glasses (and free 1.5 single vision index lenses!) from (formerly known as Coastal Contacts). Yep, that’s right. First time customers of can snag free frames with free frames and free 1.5 single vision index lenses (you’ll just need to pay shipping and handling costs which are typically $6.95-$14).

Here’s what you need to do to snag your free glasses…

* Head over to and pick out your favorite frames.
* Enter your prescription
* Enter the promo code HIP2FIRSTFREE at checkout (this code is only valid thru 2/28/12!)
(keep in mind that this promo code is for new customers only!)
* Head to checkout where you’ll need to pay shipping and handling charges and the costs for any lens upgrades

Fine Print: This promo is for first time glasses customers only; One free pair of glasses per customer; Certain frames are NOT eligible for the promotion (if you see a “Coupons not applicable” message on a pair of frames, then it is excluded from the promotion);1.5 index lenses included for free; lens upgrades including higher index lenses, progressives, Transitions, polarized and all lens coatings are available at an additional cost; shipping and handling costs apply; cannot be combined with any other offers; valid for residents of the USA only

Check out some of the comments left by Hip2Save readers last time I highlighted this offer…

I’ve ordered two pairs for my son. One pair of Guess and one pair of Lacoste. They look wonderful, work well, and the best part? With all the additional things, they were $32 shipped each. He’s been wearing them for about a year now. My opinion? They are just as nice as the $500 Gucci ones he was wearing until the frame broke. Seriously, he spent $500 on glasses only to have them break. His $32 glasses have held up really well.

Awesome! I really have been wanting a new pair of glasses and you can’t beat paying just $6.95 for shipping! I am really excited! Thanks!

I got my new glasses from there and I am very pleased. They may not fit quite as nicely as if I had gotten them fitted at the doc, but the prescription is fine and the glasses are great. I got Vera Wangs, and they are very attractive. They came within a week right to my front door! I would highly recommend this deal!

I got a pair for $18 about a year ago. I like the glasses because their lenses were 10x the quality of the glasses from my Dr. office. The lenses at coastal are clearer and stronger. And they look great on. With the tools they tell you how to measure your own face. It is so easy! And about 10% of the cost. I have ordered more from them without deals because they are such better quality. Cheaper for a whole pair there than just the lenses at the Dr. office.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
