Did you know that if you’re a student at UBC that you can get designer shades at around 75% off? Yup, that’s right. I got these Michael Kors sunglasses from the House of Vision Optical in the UBC Village for under $50 when they were originally $300. My sister even got a pair for $30!
So what’s the catch? There isn’t really one. Basically, your UBC health insurance plan covers $100 off any pair of glasses (including sunglasses) every 24 months at the House of Vision Optical. On top of that, they’re having a sale right now – 30% – 50% off most of their products.
So it’s the perfect time to go pick up a nice pair of sun glasses with summer just around the corner. Just make sure you bring your student ID with you.
