Summer Shades: Glasses Game Strong

Eyeglasses have become a fashion statement, a must-have accessory for those who require them and even those who don’t!

Summer is the perfect time to renew your prescription (if you have one) and get fitted with some on-trend frames.

So how can a fashion-forward Savvy Shopper ensure they’re not only getting the best specs but best deals as well? of course!

Now, you might be wondering, “But Rakuten, I need to try on my glasses before I buy them.” And to that we say, “Why not try them on virtually?”

Eye Glasses

Sites, like, allow you to input the measurements from your current frames to narrow down your search. So you’ll only get glasses that will fit your dimensions! But even if you decide you don’t like the glasses or they don’t fit quite right, exchanges are free and (mercifully) easy.

On top of a wide style selection, awesome return and exchange policy, and Cash Back, also offers free shipping! And if you are a contact lense wearer – not to worry! They have you covered there, too.

Whatever your style, preference, age or gender you’ll find a wide selection of styles in every shape and colour you can imagine, all at prices for every budget!


Contrary to what everyone outside of Canada believes, this is not the Great White North… at least not all year long! Summer can get quite… sunny… Obviously, you want to protect your peepers and you might as well do it in something trendy, right?!

A great go-to for staple sunglasses is Sunglass Hut. They house some of the best brands in the biz, like Ray-Ban, Oakley, Dior, Gucci, Prada, and many more. If you’re a fan of high-end luxury brands, it’s awesome to also be earning Cash Back.

Penningtons, as if they didn’t already do it all, also has an amazing collection of women’s sunglasses. These gems are worth the visit not only because of the great price but the variety of styles and shapes they offer.

If you have a particular affinity for sunglasses (read: you like to buy ALL the sunglasses), then might we recommend a visit to H&M? Seriously, unique styles for men, women and kids at affordable prices.

PS: Have you downloaded our mobile app yet? If not, you really should. How many times have you impromptu-shopped on your phone only to realize you could have gotten some Cash Back for that purchase? It’s okay, we’ve all been there.
