When it comes to sunglasses, there is a perfect style for everyone. Although some people are in a position to purchase designer glasses with a price tag of $150 and higher, most often people want sunglasses that look nice and offer good protection but also fit within the budget. While there are thousands of options for low cost sunglasses that look great, two primary problems exist.

  • Little protection from the sun’s harsh rays
  • Distorted vision

Obviously, the main reason someone buys sunglasses is to shield the eyes, which serves as protection while making it easier to see; so investing in something subpar is simply a waste of money. However, the other concern, of distorted vision, can be almost as bad. Unfortunately, some of the cheaper made sunglasses have defected lenses. Regardless if the problem is caused by a bubble, uneven lens density, wavy lines, or something else, distortion would be both an annoyance and potential risk when driving.

Instead of spending $10, $20, or even $30 on something that would last only a short time and provide poor quality protection, we want to provide some helpful tips for buying designer sunglasses but at a fraction of the original cost.

Cost Saving Tips

With the information provided, a person could save anywhere from 30% to 70% off the original price of designer sunglasses, sometimes more. Although it might take a little time to find the best deals, considering the combination of high quality and low price, it would be worth the effort. We listed viable tips for spending less and getting more.

  • Yearend Sales – Every year, designers launch a new line of sunglasses. To clear out the inventory of styles from the prior year, retailers are directed to dramatically lower the cost. Remember, sunglasses from the prior year are still going to have current styles and in fact, some of the newly launched merchandise will be very similar.
  • Overstock – Another way to save money is by purchasing overstock merchandise. While there are companies that sell nothing but overstock items, it is also common for retailers to mark down prices when carrying too much of a particular product.
  • Less Popular Brands – Even among top designers, some brands outsell others. If sunglasses are produced in a particular style or color that does not sell as well as anticipated, the price would be reduced to make the item more appealing to consumers.
  • Seasonal Sales – As with clothes and shoes, designers create sunglasses for specific seasons. To save money, an example would be purchasing sunglasses from a summer collection closer to wintertime.
  • Outlet Stores – There are designer outlet stores located throughout the country where sunglasses are sold at discounted prices for a variety of reasons. For instance, the merchandise could be a prior year’s style or something not selling well. However, outlet stores also sell designer products as part of a marketing strategy or a testing phase. For instance, a small number of sunglasses from the upcoming year could be sold to get consumers excited about up-and-coming launches or sunglasses might be tested prior to being manufactured to determine consumer interest.
  • Online Resources – Buying online offers several advantages but also a few disadvantages. The greatest benefit is cost savings in that designer sunglasses are often sold for 60% to 80% off the original retail price. In addition, shopping online allows a person to look at multiple designer brands, which means more styles and colors. The main disadvantage is not having the ability to see or try the product on in person. However, a pair of designer sunglasses could be tried on first at a local store and then that same product can be purchased online for less money.
