Contact Lens Deals at Contact Lens King

Why should anyone buy contact lenses online? There are two reasons, actually, and I will go over each one in detail below.

First and most importantly, you will end up paying less for contact lenses that you buy online. And the contact lenses you receive from online stores will be the exact same ones you would have purchased from your doctor’s office. So why are the prices lower? I believe it is because online stores have lower overhead, and also have to deal with more price competition. It’s easy for someone online to search for the lowest contact lens price, so sellers online have a greater incentive to offer the lowest prices.

In addition to the already low prices, by shopping online, you can also use online coupons. And example of this would be Contact Lens King coupons that I used to get a discount on my order along with free shipping. The importance of free shipping cannot be underestimated when you are buying products online, as shipping costs can easily offset any savings you’d be getting on the product itself. For the best online coupons, I recommend checking out’s Contact Lens King discount coupons.

The second advantage of online buying is that your lenses will always be in stock. This has not been the case for me at doctor’s offices, and I frequently have to return a week later to pick up my lenses. At online stores like Contact Lens King, I have never run into a situation where they didn’t have my specific lenses stocked and ready to deliver.

You may worry that you won’t have time to order and wait for your lenses. At most optometrists’ offices, however, they will give you a week’s supply of lenses, so you should be fine. Most contact lens stores will deliver your contacts in just about one week, and you always have the option to pay extra for express delivery as well. The best thing to do, however, is schedule your eye exam a couple weeks before you expect to run out of lenses. This will give you plenty of time to place an order online and receive your contact lenses.

Finding a good anti-virus program

If you’ve used computers for any length of time, you understand the importance of having a good security software program or anti-virus program running in the background at all times. Sometimes, your ISP will provide you with such software, but there are other instances where it will be necessary for you to purchase your own. Some reliable brands include Norton and Mcafee.

For individuals on a budget, free software may also be an option. While most free programs aren’t quite as good as software you purchase, they still offer a basic level of protection that is far superior to having nothing installed at all.

Regardless of whether you buy a program or download a free one, it’s important to read reviews and select a well-rated anti-virus solutions. PC Mag reviews programs every year, and you should check out their article before making a final decision.


Does it pay off to buy a cheap printer?

Cheap is good, or so we believe. But as a consumer, you must always be careful when you buy an inexpensive item. Take cars, for example. You may think you’re saving money by purchasing a cheap car, but ironically, you could end up paying more in the long run through expensive repairs.

discount ink cartridgesPrinters are no different. I have purchased cheap printers from manufacturers like HP and Dell, thinking I’m getting a great deal on a brand name printer. While in most cases, such printers did function adequately, the real cost came in the form of printer ink. The printer may be inexpensive, but the ink cartridges frequently cost $20, $30, or $40 or more. What’s more, the cartridges run out of ink very quickly, forcing you to purchase more and more ink as you continue to use the device.

These days, I always check out how much a printer’s ink cartridges cost before purchasing a printer. This information is easy enough to obtain online. You should look not just at the cost of the ink cartridge, but how many pages each cartridge will pay. A relatively expensive cartridge, for example, may end up being a good deal if it’s capable of printing 500 pages or more.

So what should you do if you’ve already purchased a cheap printer and don’t want to buy a new printer anytime soon? In that case, you’re stuck with having to purchase ink for that printer, however, there are certain tactics you can use to pay less.

One is to purchase ink online from discount ink stores such as 123inkjets. If you buy remanufactured cartridges, you can often also use 123inkjets coupons available from inkjetpritnerdiscounts for additional savings of up to 15% off. If you prefer to buy new ink, you should avoid OEM cartridges to get a better deal.

Some people also use ink refill kits to refill old cartridges. This takes a bit of work and you may need to go through a trial and error stage before you get the process right. But once you’re competent at refilling ink cartridges, this by far would be the most cost effective way to get ink for your printer. Most cartridges can be used a number of times before they need to be recycled. It is important to note that refilling ink and thereby recycling old cartridges, you are also being more environmentally friendly.

That said, refilling ink is not for everybody. For most people the quickest and easiest way to get new ink cheaply is by buying them online at well-known discount ink shops like 123inkjets.

Renting from Gamefly vs. Buying Videos Games – A Look at the Pros and Cons

I have a Gamefly membership, and for the most part, I rent games that I want to play from them. With something like 8000 titles available, it’s not hard to find many great games to try out. And I really love the fact that I can keep the games as long as I want.

Mortal Kombat XThis arrangement works well for me since I’m someone who bores easily, and I usually don’t play a game for more than a couple weeks. For someone like me, it makes little sense to buy all my games. Not only would I go broke doing so, I’d end up with a ton of games I no longer play sitting on the shelf.

The only people for whom it makes sense to buy games are people who really fall in love with games and play them repeatedly over the course of many years. I do know of such people. But even for those people, I would think that renting a game first is the smart way to test out a game. If you don’t do that, you can end up purchasing games which you believe you will fall in love with, but don’t. This happened to me numerous times, until I finally wised up and got myself a Gamefly subscription. Therefore, even if you like to purchase your games, I highly recommend that you join Gamefly. You can get 1 month free to check out the service, if you go to Free Trial

So what should you do if you have a lot of games you purchased that you no longer play? Sell them! With sites like Glyde and Ebay, there is no reason to leave these games on your, shelf collecting dust. You won’t get full retail price, but you should have no difficulty getting 60 – 70% of retail, which is a lot better than nothing. This is what I did with my old games before joining Gamefly.

Discount Shopping Guide

Welcome to our website. will be a blog dedicated to saving you money. We will do this by providing posts and guides on how to get discounts and coupons on the items you buy. The site will be eclectic, covering a wide variety of topics. In addition, we are friendly and invite you to contact us if you have any feedback or questions about the site.

With all that said, let’s get started. Since this is our very first post on the site, we thought we’d start out by providing you with a handy discount shopping guide. Whether you’re doing your shopping online or offline, there are plenty of ways to save cash. Let’s cover offline shopping first.

Discount Offline Shopping

Costco warehouseAs much as possible I try to purchase items online before buying them from brick and mortar shops. This is because I’ve noticed, from experience, that you typically get a much better deal by purchasing on the Internet. In some cases, you can avoid paying sales tax as well.

But there are still going to be plenty of things you’ll have to buy by going to physical stores. The following are some ways I save money when shopping at local stores.

  1. I always look for coupons. For local shopping, pay attention to coupons you receive in the mail. Valpak is my favorite at the moment, but there are plenty of others that you should be receiving on a regular basis in your mailbox. You can also search for coupons online. Many merchants offer coupons on their website, which you can print and take with you in order to receive your discount.
  2. Buy used. We are all in the habit of getting new items, but for many products, you can easily find a used item that is just as good. Things I always buy used are cars, some furniture (such as book shelves), and books and CDs. Garage sales and Goodwill are great places to find quality used items.
  3. Join warehouse clubs. Costco and Sam’s Club are two of the more popular warehouse clubs. Not only will you pay less for the items you buy, you will also be buying in bulk, which usually gets you much better deals.
  4. Buy generic products. I’ve said it many times in the past and I’ll say it again. Generic products are usually just as good as brand alternatives. Get in the habit of buying generic, and you’ll save hundreds of dollars each year. You won’t find generic alternatives to everything you buy, but when you do, I recommend always buying generic.

Discount Online Shopping

As mentioned earlier, I always prefer to buy online if at all possible. In almost all cases, I am able to get a lower price on the Internet. I encourage everyone to therefore do as much of their shopping online as possible.

Here are my tips for getting the best deals when you purchase products online:

  1. Hunt for online coupons. You should keep an eye on coupon sites like Groupon to find deals. Also, check for coupons on sites like Retailmenot before you make an on line purchase. You’ll be surprised to discover that in most cases, you will be able to find a coupon for something you are purchasing online.
  2. Always compare prices. There are a couple different ways you can go about comparing prices. The easiest way is to use a shopping comparison site like Nextag. But I know from experience that this doesn’t always give you a merchant with the lowest price. So it’s also a good idea to have some of your favorite discount shops bookmarked, and check with those stores as well. Make sure you factor in shipping costs, so that you’re comparing apples to apples. Incidentally, you can get shopping comparison apps, which allow you to make comparisons while you are away from your home or office. Read this article to find out some of the best apps for this purpose.
  3. Purchase in bulk. For many products, such as printer ink or vitamins, you tend to get better prices if you buy large quantities. In many cases, larger orders will allow you to qualify for free shipping as well. Buying in bulk is therefore almost always in your best interest. Obviously, if your buying a large quantity of perishable items, you’ll want to pay attention to expiration dates and make sure you don’t order too much.
  4. Buy used. Online, there are tons of things that you can purchase used. Some of the best things you can buy used are books, CDs, movies, and video games. Amazon has quite a few used sellers for such products. Ebay is also a good alternative. And lastly, there are many websites like Glyde that are dedicated to selling you quality used goods.

In the coming months and years, we will be providing many more posts on specific ways to save money. But these general guidelines should get you started on the road to living more economically.
