We found the Glasses Spot website to be one of the most confusing websites to navigate. For example, one place it states that they have free shipping on all orders - but then when you click on shipping it states that there is a $9.99 flat rate shipping charge on all orders under $100.
Glasses Spot advertises that they sell 58 name brands of eyeglasses. However when searching specifically for those brands, several only have 1 pair of glasses for a particular brand. At the time of our review it seemed like the website was also having some issues based on the searches we tried to perform. For example, when we clicked on eyeglasses at the top of the screen, only 2 pairs of eyeglasses came up. But if you search on the left side of the screen under frame style it reported there were 3,892 pair of eyeglasses. Frustratingly, though, we were unable to see those pairs.
Glasses Spot has progressive, anti-reflective, transition and polarized lenses. They offer a 14-day money back guarantee, however that is on the frames only and does not cover the lenses. All Deal of the Day purchases are final sales and they will not accept returns on them. Return shipping is also paid by you, the customer.
We also found customer complaints about the production time of their orders. Many reported an order taking several weeks instead of the days that are advertised on their website.
With their misleading "free shipping" claim, along with their almost non-existent eyeglass selection, Glass Spot falls well short compared to the other eyeglass companies that we reviewed. If we were actually able to see the selection of eyeglasses that they advertise we would be able to give them a higher rating.
If you have not purchased eyeglasses online before, you may not know just how easy it is to order prescription eyeglasses online. But how can you decide which eyeglass company to use?
Obviously, you want to find quality, affordable eyeglasses that look great on you! A lot of eyeglass companies have really simplified the process of online ordering and explain the steps to order in detail on their websites. Some companies even have the virtual mirror where you can virtually try on the glasses to see what they will look like on you prior to ordering.
As you consider the various companies that offer eyeglasses, keep in mind these basic criteria:
