These glasses will feel like $5-$10 glasses. In my university days I got free pairs (paid shipping around $5-10) from zenni, clearly and one other brand. My prescription is low and the cheap glasses worked fine. I would recommend them if you're on a budget or need something disposable. My biggest issue was finding big enough frames because my head quite large.

However, now that I have insurance I much prefer spending $150-$250 at Costco or on Ray-Ban from any of the retailers.

No need to generalize.
I got 2 pairs from Clearly for $145-160 and they were uncomfortable to wear and not true to the size. It was also painful to wear those frames with on-the-ear headphones.
In July I got a free pair from Kits ("Ulysses" frame) and have been wearing it every day since. Not only they are very nice-looking and comfortable, but even the standard lenses with no additional coating are quality enough for everyday usage. So I would definitely recommend Kits, but not Zenny or Clearly.

I myself ordered a pair last Thursday. Should be getting it by Monday they said, then I will see how good they are. Never hurts to have an extra disposable set of glasses though.

I've gotten 2 "free" pairs from Kits (Just used a different email address, same payment method, name and shipping address) and they are both good so far. Shipping was fast.

I bought 8-10 pairs over five years from the three brands and made an educated guess based on my experience of glasses that cost under $20 each. I qualified it with why they didn't work for me due to size and still recommend them for people on a budget. I have no experience with Kits but I am perfectly happy to defend my generalization and apply it to Kits. My conclusions were more similar to yours then dissimilar.

You made a general statement about Zenny and Clearly because you spent $145-$160 and were unhappy due to comfort (subjective), but were happy with Kits because of looks (subjective) and comfort (subjective).

Here is a link to a previous RFD thread with some feedback from people who received their glasses: kits-com-free-glasses-kits-com-code-2364077/4/

Again, I do generally recommend these online glasses companies, as long as your expectation of quality is realistic. Even within the lineup of clearly and other brands as you move to wards $40, $60, $100 a pair the quality may go up.

I also know that a higher price does not always equal better quality. Earlier this year I spent $800 on Gucci prescription sunglasses and $600 on Tom Ford prescription glasses. They are both of lower quality (plastic, creaking, flex) than my two Ray-bans which costed around $250 each. I knew this when I bought them, but I wanted the specific style and brand name and insurance was paying for it. Just my 2 cents.

Apparently their refund policy is non-existent for glasses and frames. They only offer exchanges or store credit, which is a shame. Can anyone comment on this? How's their customer service otherwise?

Got 2 pairs so far. I don't think I'll ever be able to pay 300$+ for glasses again. The prescription was spot on. The only thing I recommend is double checking the size of the frame.

Edit : They ship from BC, got my pairs within a couple of business days. I'm in Ontario.
