Eyeglasses and contact lenses discounts

It's that time of year when temperatures cool and leaf colors change. If you need an eye exam, eyeglasses, sunglasses or contact lenses, why not fall into some savings?

We've updated our offers page with savings from our partners, and I, a former managing editor at CreditCards.com, will show you some tips to stack your savings.

If you're buying eyeglasses from online sites like EyeBuyDirect or Ray-Ban.com, check your Amex Offers. As an American Express cardholder, you often can save a chunk at select eyewear retailer sites just by paying with your Amex card (as opposed to other credit cards).

EyeBuyDirect Amex Offer

For example, now through the end of 2019, if you spend $70 or more at EyeBuyDirect, you will get $20 cash back with your Amex Offer-linked American Express card.

Ray-Ban Amex Offer

If you spend $150 or more on some Ray-Ban shades, you will get $30 back just by linking the Amex Offer and paying with your American Express card.

You can stack even more savings by adding Honey or other cash back apps to your browser or phone.

Go through your airline's shopping portal to shop for eyeglasses online, and you may be able to earn points or miles with your purchase.

How do these savings stack up?

1. Check your Amex Offers (or similar bonus savings programs on your other credit cards) and link any eyewear offers to your card.

2. Use the links to eyewear offers below or go to your favorite eyewear retailer through your airline shopping portal and then find the discounts page on the retailer's site.

3. Shop for your glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses.

4. Fill your shopping cart and check Honey or a similar service for additional savings.

5. Pay with your Amex Offer-linked card or other bonus cash back-linked credit card.

Add up your discounts and fall into savings. Let the savings apps and your credit cards save you even more money on your next pair of glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses.
