Great Discount on Glasses/Sunglasses at Sam’s

I wanted to share a great deal that we stumbled into on glasses!  Now through around July 14th or 16th (I can’t remember what they told me), you can save $40 on eyeglasses or prescription sunglasses at Sam’s Club, up to two pairs.  My daughter’s glasses were $57 total – just basic lenses and kid’s frames, but we thought that was a great deal.  Last time we paid around $100 total at Sam’s for a very similar setup. The optician that served us said they don’t do the sale very often.

If you’re interested, you may want to call to confirm the sale info and dates, as the Sam’s Club website doesn’t have anything on it.

Price-Matching Ending at Local Walmarts

Update on June 27th: A reader let me know today that the Gazette reported today that price matching has officially ended at all area Wal-Marts.

Dorinda sent in this news that’s a bummer to Walmart shoppers:

My clerk at the Austin Bluffs and Academy Walmart neighborhood market told me today that June 12th is their last day to price match. Savings Catcher will continue, but price matching at the register will cease.

I haven’t heard about any other specific locations that are ending price matching, but it looks like Walmart has been slowly taking away price matching a region at a time for the past year.  If you have heard about other local stores that are or aren’t ending price matching, please comment.
