Not sure if it's still on but they used to have first pair free, only pay shipping which is about 15$. One order per address. I used 2 different emails and got one pair sent to home, one pair to work.

The two pairs I got were pretty solid though I got the metal frame ones and not plastic so can't comment on the quality of that.

The quality is fine for what you pay for at 50% off. Can't comment on their plastic frames, but plastic/acetate has always got a bit of that low-budget, flimsy, "dollarama" feel...you're really just paying for the lens/coating.

I have a high index prescription (-6.00), their thin lenses don't really feel thin. So anyone with a bad prescription should be aware to not get large lenses or metal frames like I did Neutral Face
It is very front heavy and the adjustment can be bit of a pain. That being said...frames feel fine. It's like under $100 shipped so I can't complain.

IMO don't get any brand names (Ray Ban, etc.) on Kits. Stick with their in-house brands for a cheap pair. IMO I find their lenses being a bit on the cheaper side. Still functional, just not thin/light enough.

You're better off going to Clearly if you want brand-name frames as they use Essilor lenses (their parent company).

Ordered a free pair of London Fog (pay only shipping) awhile back and they are as solid as the ones I saw and tried in the store. Actually identical.

Guess it may be hit or miss but I had a positive experience.

jumping into to say, insanely fast shipping (richmond, bc) and quality pair of glasses. The frame has taken a beating as well as the lenses. I'm still impressed the spring-loadedness feels premium.

GF and I both got sets with FREEKITS prior to them ever showing up on RFD. Daily drove (and even wearing right now) these glasses for 2 years almost. Can't complain for $10-15.

I do, however use my insurance for higher end frame/lenses. These initially were a backup pair, now became dailies.

Oh. That’s a pretty big difference. I wouldn’t get excited about the house brand I don’t wear the free ones I got from them.

If one needs some throw-around glasses one doesn't care about, then online is the best way to go. If it's mission-critical like if your work depends on having clear vision, or you're legally blind without your glasses, I would recommend going to an optical store. Depending on your budget and if you have vision care insurance to help out, I do recommend Optiks International if you have one in your town. They have a hot deal where you can get the 2 for 1 deal for x amount off (generally $175 off, but ymmv) with a Groupon coupon you can buy for really cheap depending on if Groupon also has a sale. Best of all, you may be able to double-dip by getting cashback from Rakuten.ca as well since Groupon is a Rakuten.ca merchant. For me, it works out to be about $100 per pair of glasses with one of them a designer frame with pretty much all the features and creature comforts you need on a single prescription lens: anti-reflection; anti-scratch; oleophobic (anti-smudge); and even transitions (lenses that go dark when exposed to UV light with built-in blue light filter).

I also tend to prefer to shop for glasses in-person since I can visit them for adjustments and after-sale care. It is important that your measurements are correct for your prescription and proper focal points with good manufacturing tolerances so you have glasses that won't give you a wicked headache, but nowhere to turn to for help.

They may have free returns, but how painless is the returns process? At the end of the day, you do get what you paid for -- and service generally is very missing from the picture when shopping at the lowest price. Neutral Face
Why settle for full retail price when you can wait and get it at a lower price for better value (even better if there's a bundled freebies deal)? 😉

I'm happy with my two out of three pairs. The one I'm not happy with is because the frame I chose slides down my nose and sits small on my face. Considering I paid less than $60 for all three, compared to at least $300 from literally any in-store shop, I'm way ahead.

Anyone have any alternative suggestions for cheap glasses? Kits.ca doesn't sell the lens my daughter needs.

I've tried zenni, kits, eyebuydirect, and clearly. Clearly had the worst customer service, trying to get them to warranty glasses that started peeling was terrible. They said it was my fault that the plastic dip was coming off even though I've never had a pair do that ever. Zenni and Kits were the cheapest overall and great for everyday use. Eyebuydirect had the BEST warranty hands down, my prescription polarized sunglasses fell off my head when I leaned down and scratches the front. I emailed them asking to buy just replacement lenses and they sent me a free replacement pair.

Hopefully this helps!
