15th Costco shopping in 2018 – $186.30 (today) / $844.46 (this year)
I spent many hours researching. I can tell you with confidence that Costco provides the best deal on prescription lenses (for eyeglasses).
There are cheaper deals out there. I used to wear a pair of eyeglasses from China that was $18 for both frame and lenses. So, if you are poor, you can take a chance, sacrifice your vision, and save money. I was young and financially challenged several years ago. At that time China was my only option. Now that I am financially stable, I will absolutely avoid sending my prescription to China.
Today I ordered a pair of lenses at Costco. This was my first bi-focal.
Since Costco has limited supply of eyeglass frames, I bought a frame of my own from Amazon. Costco charges $25 (?) for bringing your own glasses. They charged me $18 this time, because of the system glitch. They couldn’t find account number to charge me $25(?). So, they charged the old price of $18.
After ordering prescription lenses, I bought a 16 pack of Gillette razor blades, Fusion5 Proglide, with $10 savings. As far as I am concerned, Gillette razors that takes a battery is the best (non-professional) shaving system on this planet . Let me know if there are better razors out there.
$34.99 for 16 pack is THE best price anywhere. Without $10 savings, you can find better price on eBay.
There are ways to make your razor blades to last longer. I should study on how to properly maintain them. I don’t do anything special to my razor blades. But, each of my razor blades lasts well over a month. I understand most men go through 1 razor blades a week. I guess most men have a lot more hair.. thicker… gross.
