The selectspecs 20 off 39 offer makes no sense. There are no glasses at 39 or above in their own brands!

There are lots. SS is their own brand (this is obvious).

Hi, you can choose anything from our Economy, Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum ranges, these are all included in the offer. You can either choose a pair above 39 or make the total up by choosing several items of a lesser value.

Kind regards,

The codes are valid from 00.00 Thursday until 23.59 Friday GMT only. So unfortunately when you tried to use the code it wasn't active.

So we can choose 2 pairs totalling 40 and still get the 20 discount?

i've chosen Savannah frames and delivery which totals 39.00. However, the code is not accepted (exactly at this moment).

does the 39.00 have to be EXCLUDING delivery?

i've just tried it at 41.50 excluding delivery and it's still not accepted.

.... and there seems to be no way of emailing/ticketing Select Specs to enquire.

i'm choosing from the Value range, does that matter?

I think that offer is little expensive which will stop customers to buy it.

I got an email from Speckyfoureyes.com on friday with their latest offer - 2 pairs of William Morris Designer glasses for just 39. The banner on the homepage takes you straight through: www.Speckyfoureyes.com You just need to put 2 pairs in your basket and use the code: 'fkn3c' to get the money off.

I've also just noticed that they are offering a pair of Bench glasses for only 15 on the 'featured frames' section on the homepage - and if you put FREE COATINGS in the info box you get free coatings plus a free case and cloth: http://www.speckyfoureyes.com/produc...pfid=3179&c=83. Doesn't look like you need a code for that one.

They always seem to do really good offers.

That's a pity. My order at selectspecs seems to have gone through. I would have liked the Bench glasses as an extra pair.

I bought a few pairs from Asda some months ago on their offer of 2 for 90 and these others are just as spares. The Asda ones are very good with all coatings and ultra thin lenses included.

Hiya,

I tried calling them but the phones were closed so I emailed them and they replied, this is what they said:


Thanks for the email Claire,

The offer we have running on the 15 Bench glasses should still be available over the next week or so - perhaps a little longer. They are selling quite quickly but we have enough stock to cope with the demand. At 15 for a pair of Bench Designer frames, prescription Single Vision lenses, a case, cloth and free Anti-Glare (Anti-Reflection) & Scratch Resistant Coating we are sure you'll agree that this is a great offer especially since Bench frames (without lenses) can be up to 120 alone on the High Street.

We've noticed you've bought multiple pairs from us before - have you had a chance to view our new William Morris range? We are currently running an offer where you can buy 2 pairs for only 39. Just click on the banner on our homepage to view the frames (www.SpeckyFourEyes.com)

If you require any other information please feel free to email us again.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Kind regards,
Claire
