FYI, that's $9.95 USD, which comes out to around $14 CAD. That's still a good deal, I think, for a no frills backup pair of prescription glasses.

It is probably still cheaper to order from Zenni even thought kits is "free" because coatings are expensive (relatively speaking).

For example:
Kits: Frame (free) + coating combo (UV+anti-reflect+anti-scratch) $19.99 + shipping ($9.99) = ~$30
Zenni: Frame (varies, but ~$10) + coating combo ($5) + shipping ($7) = ~$22

Kits will be a bit cheaper if you get zero coatings or other features, but if you do, they are all roughly half the price at Zenni. In a no coating comparison, $9.99 at Kits vs $14 at Zenni (using cheapest frame at $7 + anti-scratch and UV coatings, which are 'free').

It’s good for granparents.
No titanium glasses. Plastic ones are still more expensive with a prescription than titanium ones with the prescription in Eastern Europe.

Has anyone bought glasses with high-index lenses from Kits? If so, can you comment on the quality of these lenses and how they might compare to a Nikon high-index lens?

I bought non-prescription lenses and they are transparent (in a good way) with almost no reflection.
I think the flip-open case they came in would cost me more that $14

It must be profitable enough to eat the cost of the first one and make it up on the percentage of people who buy a second (or third, fourth, etc) time.
The last time they raised capital was Nov 15, 2016

Heads up. I ordered a Pair back in early June.
Haven't recieved it yet.
Probably more of a post issues that a KITS problem though.

I got a free upgrade to high-index (without the coating I assume) and the quality is great tbh and I’ve worn it everyday since! I see no difference from the overpriced lenses.

It's a bummer that they don't offer progressive lenses :(

Had the same issue, contacted customer service and they sorted things out and reshipped same day. Good communication, I'd buy again.

I got these last time around and love them.
shipping was super fast, 3 days in BC.
I had bought a pair from clearly and within a week the lenes were already starting to scratch even with their coatings.
kits hasn't so far =)

recommend kits!
