(Bumping this Halloween Contacts post for 2011! I am bumping it quite early so as to give you plenty of time to make your online order, and give you time for it to arrive)
If you want to go that extra mile for your Halloween outfit this year, you should consider buying spooky Halloween contacts to add that final touch. I've compiled a list of a few useful online Halloweencontact lens sellers, and some details about discounts, and shipping within Canada.
I've not included any novelty sites on here, just proper contact lens stores.
A good Canadian online company that I know of is Clearly Contacts Canada.
Remember, there are often coupon codes which you can use to get extra discount too - here are all the ClearlyContacts deals I have posted on Bargainmoose. You should be able to score yourself at least 10% discount on the Halloween lenses. Some coupon codes might include free shipping too.
While I cannot see a dedicated Halloween section on their site, Visionpros sell Freshlook contacts if you just want a colour change.
If you're a new customer there, you can get $10 off and free shipping on a $149 spend with the coupon code WBNEW, or you can get an extra 5% discount on your order with the coupon code BARGAINMOOSE.
Now, for a bit more choice you might be more inclined to try purchasing from US merchants. There are literally LOADS of US based optical stores, which will ship to Canada. Here's a bit of a rundown on what you need to know, about a few of the major US merchants. Just order early!
AC Lens only sell a Halloween range of contact lenses. There's even an Edward Cullen!
At checkout, you can change the currency to Canadian dollars. Canadian shipping starts at $14.95.
Here, they have a range of Halloween, special effect, FX, theatrical and novelty contact lenses.
Shipping seems to start at $7.95.
Coastal Contacts is the US arm of Clearly Contacts. It might be worth using an exchange rate converter and see if you can get a better deal from Coastal Contacts than from Clearly Contacts Canada.
For shipping from Coastal Contacts, prices start at $10.95 for priority ground shipping.
Here, there's a Halloween page, with various styles and colours of contact lenses.
Canadian shipping starts at $9.95.
There are a lot of Halloween contact lenses to choose from on Lensmart.com. They are a pretty major player in the US contact lens market.
Canadian shipping is $9.99. Orders over $99 can get 25% off and free shipping with the coupon code 25NEWLM (thought I don't know if the free shipping applies to Canada too).
Another US based company, Vision Direct also ship Halloween themed contact lenses to Canada. It seems to be the same company as Lensmart above!
Canadian shipping is $9.99, and it should arrive within 5-10 days. It must be an arm of Lensmart too, as the above coupon code also applies.
Justlenses is another US company which sells a wide range of fashion lenses too.
Shipping is a bit steep though, $24.95 with Fedex to Canada.
This seems to be the same checkout mechanism as a few of the other sites. Shipping is $24.95 by Fedex too. Steep!
Note On Taxes
Because contact lenses are a prescription product, there is no sales tax, whether you are buying from Canada or the US.
(If you know of any more good contact lens stores that I should add to this list, please let me know)
