I've just joined the wonderful world of contacts. Where do you recommend to buy replacements from?

Welcome to my world! I wear Purevision monthly disposable lenses. I usually buy 'em online. The best places to check for contact lens prices is this website (sort of like a dvdpricesearch for lenses):

http://www.lensprice.com/

The last 2 times I bought lenses (I buy 'em in 6 month paks), I paid under $50 each time after rebate. I've bought from 1a1bargaincontacts before; their website maybe crappy but their prices are good and their merchandise is the same as you would buy at any lenscrafters.

You got that right. But their pricing is pretty darn attractive. I would never buy from these guys without your recommendation, as the website looks pretty shady.

costco has the 1-2 week ones @ $15 (contacts aren't taxed) last time i checked. might be a little cheaper online, but not much, after shipping.

I did hear about Costco having good prices on contacts.

I wonder if Sam's and BJ's also have similar deals...

For those without membership, I have seen Walmart have decent prices as well.

Why not spend $70 on a regular pair of soft contacts that last 1-1.5 years?
