Any codes for Glasses Direct

Basically I am after a pair of bifocals (only able to afford one from the £25.00 range) for my mum, problem is due to her prescription, it brings it up to £58.00 which is a tad expensive for me as I am an apprentice, so was wondering if anyone knew of any discount codes? thank you! :j

    Probably better having a look on the referrals board where we have listed our links.

    I've found that Asda come up with the best price on varifocal/bifocals. They charge the same price as their normal lenses (£40 I think) and have budget frame from about a tenner. And at least if they're not right they can be changed. (Which isn't knocking any online glasses - I regularly use Glasses Direct and Zenni but I found the varificals were just slightly "off")

    Don't know about bifocals but I've just bought a double double pair of glasses from Glasses Direct before the latest offer runs out - tomorrow, Thursday 23.59.

    I need them for reading and driving - computer work too but I don't have a separate prescription for that, so have to make the reading ones dual function. I'm pretty heavy on them, particularly reading ones. If I don't lose them I seem to mark them, scuff them mainly because I move them from pocket to pocket throughout the day!

    I've been using GD for ages, ordering their "Silver" lens, scratch-resistant @ £12 per pair. That adds £24 to the amazing £15 cost, so after buying two pairs @ £39, I've gone back in to try two more pairs with only basic lens for the total £15 price. I'll be interested to see how the two options compare in use.

    I just thought I'd highlight the cut-off at midnight tomorrow.
