My first encounter with Coastal.com was about a year ago, when they were doing the “free pair of glasses” codes that exploded on Facebook and Twitter. I got a pair of glasses that ended up being too small, but they exchanged them for me. Then, the new pair of glasses got a scratch on the lens within the first week or so, and they replaced them for me. What I’m trying to say is, they did a lot for someone who didn’t even pay for a pair of glasses. I was extremely impressed with their customer service and the speed and ease with which I could make returns and exchanges.
I was recently contacted by another online glasses + contacts company and asked to do a review. I began to inquire about their customer service policies to see if they matched up with my beloved experience with Coastal.com, and they didn’t. So I thought, I don’t want to blog about another company! I want to blog about Coastal.com! I contacted Julia at Coastal and asked if we could work together. I am impressed with the way Coastal is using social media — they even have an Instagram account! — and wanted to brag about them. Because if there’s one thing I love, it’s a great deal. Combine that with excellent service and great social media utilization and you will have my heart for all eternity.
I chose a pair of Tory Burch glasses to review, and I love them. They are stunningly gorgeous. I kind of just want to keep them to look at them…but I guess to really look at them, I need to wear them…so yeah. But here’s the thing. Julia (and everyone I’ve spoken to at Coastal.com) has been amazing to work with. The customer service is unbelievable. It’s so easy to order and they have about a bazillion (rough estimate) frames to choose from. And if you know me at all, you know I don’t rave about things unless I really love them. This company is the real deal.
So do you want to win a free pair of glasses or WHAT? Of course you do! Coastal.com and I are giving away THREE free pairs, no stipulations (so you can literally choose any pair on the website, designer frames and all). Here’s how to enter:
1. Leave a comment below with your thoughts and feelings about glasses. Feel free to wax eloquent. I love glasses and I love thoughts and feelings, so really, the sky is the limit.
2. Tweet a link to this post and a description of the frame you’d like to win. Be sure to add both myself @laurenfromtexas AND @TweetCoastal to the end of the tweet so we will see it. Tweet once per day from now until the end of the contest for more chances to win.
Contest will end Saturday, May 5th, midnight CST. Two winners will be chosen at random via Twitter; one will be chosen at random via blog comments.
Good luck, my fellow four-eyed friends!
