Thread Details

Just made a warm deal really hot, called 1800contacts to see if they price match, they said yes, plus give 2% bonus. i know its not much but they have great customer service, including 100% US based support.

if they whine about rebate, have them place the order on the phone, then just find the rebate form and send it in (this is the YMMV part).

use your cashback

I usually hate doing the price matching thing because of the time spent and usually you can tack on coupons but looking at my usual sites other than 1800 contacts their gouging you on 'Processing' and 'Shipping' fees which is so shady. Although high, at least 1800 contacts is straight forward pricing, so I called 1800 contacts to give them another shot and they did beat the other price by 2% and added a rebate that was better than the competition so definitely worth my while. Thanks OP!

just did a price match over the phone on 4 boxes of contacts. They discounted their price about $120 to match opticontacts. Nice!

Do you know where I can find the rebate form? I ordered some contacts, but they said they couldn't honor the rebate because I pricematched opticontacts

They have been price matching for years and years. I always find the shadiest contact lens site possible and they always beat the price. Been doing this for at least five or six years.

Also, they buy back your unused lenses. 1800Contacts is incredible. I went to Hawaii and forgot my contacts. They overnighted me a year's supply for twenty bucks - and with the price match plus, I didn't mind paying the twenty bucks at all.

I've been doing the same thing.

Price matching can be done via email or online chat too. Sometimes that's a little easier.

the rebates are issued by manufacturers they won't know you price matched. simply find the form (if available) from the manufacturer's website and send it in with receipt.

Does anyone know if 1800 contacts can match prices for Acuvue products (with the new fixed pricing policy) to a "rogue" merchant that doesn't comply?
