Vision Discount Cards

by KHouseman on September 25, 2011

I have 10 “bearer” vision discount cards at this time. Since vision checkups are usually once a year, I have devised this plan to “share” them with each other so that we can offer this discount to more people instead of just 10 people (amount of cards I have).

Send me an e mail with your name and street address on it.

When you get the card, call around to see which eye care centers accept the vision discount card. Use the card…… it does not have a name on it….. Good for the “Bearer”.

Send the card back to me and if you can, please include a postage stamp with the vision discount card to offset the postage cost

Sent to : David Banet, P. O. Box 997, Troy, Mi 48099

I in turn will sent it to another recipient and repeat the process.

If we follow this formula, I am suggesting that we should be able to help 70 or 80 people instead of 10 (the amount of cards I have).

Keep in mind that these vision discount cards may not work at all eye care centers. You may have to call around to see who accepts the discount cards.

Hope this helps.
