If you wear contacts, I would recommend checking out Costco or Sam’s Club for very aggressive pricing. In my case, I wear Acuvue Daily lenses, which can be quite spendy through an optical shop or even through 1–800–CONTACTS. At Costco, my lenses cost around $12/box; if I purchase 6 months worth of contacts I get a $30 mail-in rebate and if I purchase 12 months, I get a $60 mail-in rebate. The contacts I order at Costco are shipped directly to my door within 3–5 days from the date the order is placed. Dollar savings in contacts alone is enough to justify the yearly cost of the Costco membership.
