I'm updating the original post due to the many thumbs down and reports of people unable to replicate the deal.

Visiondirect has a 30% off coupon for new customers but it looks like you can stack this with a general 25% off coupon (not limited to new customers). Together the discount comes out to 47.5% off. You should also be able to stack with 15% back from Shop Discover or www.contactlens.cash for a total of 55.375% off!! (YMMV)

New customer coupon code: 30NEW
General coupon code: SAVE25

Based on various feedback, try the following steps:

1. Important - clear your cookies or use uncognito mode
2. the coupon code does not work if you go to the site directly, you have to use one of these links: http://www.lensbob.com/dailies-aquacomfort-plus (click on the orange 'SHOP THIS DEAL' button), www.contactlens.cash (click on the Vision Direct link), Shop Discover (Discover closed my card last year so I can't check if the coupons work through them, waiting for data points)
3. in the shopping cart - first add 30NEW then add SAVE25
4. if you've ever shopped at vision direct before, you'll have to use a different email address or it will invalidate the first coupon code. You may be able to use the gmail + trick.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Eye don't either. We should contact OP for advice.

This worked for me. I think the confusion arose because the OP didn't post the http://www.VisionDirect.com link in his post. He posted the cashback site link which will then direct you to the VisionDirect website. Once there set up a new account and use the 2 coupons at the coupon code location within the shopping basket.

Overall, my breakdown was as follows:


1. CIBA Vision VD 2016 CIBA REBATE Aug-Jan - 1 ea $0.00
2. Air Optix for Astigmatism Contact Lens - 6 lenses per Box - 2 @ $55.49 = $110.98
3. Air Optix for Astigmatism Contact Lens - 6 lenses per Box - 2 @ $55.49 = $110.98

Subtotal: $221.96
Shipping: FREE
Discount/Credit: $-120.13
Processing Fee: $1.99
tax: $0.00
Total: $103.82

I used the cashback site that the OP referenced as well. So I should expect $15.57 back from them.

Also, there is a $35 rebate for purchasing 4 boxes of contact lenses.

So my total cost per box of contact lenses will end up being $13.31 or $53.25 for a year supply of contacts.


Thanks OP! Repped!

Okay, I think I figured out what's going on here. The coupon code only works if you come from certain places. For instance, if you simply type in www.visiondirect.com [visiondirect.com] in your browser, the 30NEW code gives an error message. Also, you need to have your shopping cart empty and clear your cookies (incognito worked for me too). I retraced my steps several time and here's what I found works for sure:

1. clear your cookies or use uncognito mode
2. go to this page: http://www.lensbob.com/dailies-aquacomfort-plus
3. click on the orange 'SHOP THIS DEAL' button
4. This takes you to a specific lens but you can browse the site for your required lens and add to cart
5. in the shopping cart - first add 30NEW then add SAVE25
6. if you've ever shopped at vision direct before, you'll have to use a different email address or it will invalidate the coupon code. You may be able to use the gmail + trick.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, it's nice to see someone was able to replicate it. So I guess using the cashback links work as well. I didn't use them since the coupon codes weren't listed on contactlens.cash and I no longer have shop discover. Which did you use? I'd be interested to know if the order tracks.

I used the www.contactlens.cash website. I normally use Chrome but to make sure it worked I used Microsoft Edge.

I wanted to make sure that my ad blocker that I have enabled on Chrome didn't affect the cashback site or that any previous cookies in the browser history wouldn't affect the coupon codes. Shouldn't be an issue for anyone else with different circumstances.

That's why I eventually used incognito. After my first try, I wasn't able to replicate the success until I used incognito and clicked again through the original site. I've tried several times since then and it seems to work that way.
