            @Rickrone: These Ray-Bans could be a good idea for you, then. As a disguise, I mean. In an amazing coincidence, they’re on special right now at Sunglass Hut. It’s a little known secret that Myer have a Sunglass Hut inside! I read that somewhere, but I can’t remember where…

    • Thanks OP, can't go wrong with this. Myer Shopback/Cash Rewards cashback is only 10% (even though boosted right now) whereas SH is 14% for CR (9% for Shopback)

        People think it not be like that but it do

  • +9

    I think they are not polarized either

    • They r definitely not polarised

      • not polarised but some of the wayfarers e.g rb2140 classic have crystal glass lenses, more scratch resistant than plastic and easier to clean…..and better optical clarity …..

        of course rb2140 aren’t 50% off …..

        • What do you think of RB2132?

          • +2

            @Mr Bargain Hunter: rb2132 "new wayfarers" also come with glass lenses. less pantoscopic tilt compared with 2140s. smaller shape of the 2132s means they're more comfortable to wear with a cap or hat, if that's your thing

          • @Mr Bargain Hunter: i have the RB2132 also ….also acetate frame and glass lens.

    • +31

      So they are worse than servo sunnies

      • +2

        I got given a pair of ray bans, I also have $20 pair of polarised sunglasses from a stall in a mall..the cheap $20 pair is better. Definitely doesn't feel like the same quality but at 1/10 the price and polarised…

      • -1

        no

        Ran Bans are Servo Sunnines

      Non polarised should be banned

        i have headsup display in my car, I cant wear polarised while driving. i keep a pair on normal sunnies

        • i keep a polarised and a normal pair in the car ….

      • +1

        Head up display in car is very dim and blurred with polarised glasses, so hope they don't ban non polarised just yet.

        • +2

          Not to mention looking at a mobile phone screen with polarised sunnies.

        My job would be very difficult if non-polarised were banned!

    Hate to be this guy but this is just marketing. Luxottica shouldn’t be posting on ozbargain. Their ‘deals’ are only on the cheapest pair

    https://www.businessinsider.com.au/companies-dominate-sungla...

    • +7

      The actual manufacturing cost of one of these is $4 to $6 dollars.

      • +3

        But marketing costs are $103 per pair, so these are being given away for less than cost

      • +2

        This kind of markup is typical of a lot of products?

        • +6

          yep think Apple, Dyson, etc

          Actually every about 99% products made are sold above their cost - unbelievable but true !

          • @Maglia Nera: Truly shocking that businesses want to turn a profit and be able to pay their employees!

            Biased viewpoint but at least tech companies have significant R&D costs that justify some of the margin, the design of these glasses haven't changed much in 50 years, they're basically pure profit at this stage.

            • @dmgmelba: Same as the other things like Milk (from Cows) - yet prices have gone up, Sliced bread (again gone up), Wine (Jacobs Creek for example) … most things go up, whilst some go down

      You shouldn't even apologise for this, you're 100% spot on.

    • +3

      THANKS FOR THAT INFO

  • +2

    They have been this price since this deal was posted: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/660810
    Hence this is really a duplicate.

  • When does this end?

    • It ends when we’ve won

  • +10

    Pretty cool that everyone just came here to flame the OP for posting a 50% off deal that’s great for the right person. Usually that negativity is reserved for posts about airpods.

    • I don't think anyone said they wouldn't pay the price though, for what is a well known fact, I will buy some through Myer with a $20 xmas shopping night voucher I have.

    • -1

      Nah at least AirPods have fans, and even the haters tend to accept they have merits.

      • +1

        Not so sure about that — as far as I’m aware, AirPods are passively cooled.

    Luxottica posting deals to ozbargain is predatory and should not be allowed.

        Owner of most sunglass brands and sunglass hut.

        Capitalistic world people; get over it. Use your $ power and don't buy from them. Hardly a reason to neg.

    • +3

      Eh, is that really a valid reason to neg? These sunglass hut offers have been posted before, only difference is they weren't posted by "Luxottica", but usually associated users?

      The same complaints didn't come up then, so why now?

    • +1

      Surely the same logic would then apply to every other affiliated person/group posting a deal, not just Luxottica

    • i’m fine with luxotica posting deals IF it’s for the ones they normally don’t discount …..e.g RB2140 wayfarer classic …..20% off isn’t discount as that deal is almost every week …..40% off 2nd pair is same as 20% off each and 20% off isn’t exciting.

    • +1

      Huh? This is not how Ozbargain works, nor how capitalism works.

  • +1

    bought one :)

    • +5

      Should really get a pair

      • My left eye is particularly sensitive to light… please don’t judge…

        For anyone else wondering, it’s simple to pop one of the lenses out of these frames. Just don’t expect to get it back in again.

        • +2

          Just don’t expect to get it back in again.

          put a bowl of hot but not boiling water to soften up the frame just enough to get the lenses in. but you don't want the water to be too hot or you'll warp the frame.

          also for future reference when lens-popping, take note of which corner of the frame was easiest to pop the lens out from. it's usually on the corner closest to the nose. this is the last corner to aim for when pushing the lens back in. try inserting the lens in first at the thickest part of the frame/at the top.

          and glass lenses like on the wayfarers are much easier to pop back in than plastic lenses. the rigidity of glass helps a lot. i have a pair of 2140s where i don't even need to heat the frame to pop lenses back in. warning though: if you have deep scratches or cracks on your glass lens, wear gloves (not nitrile), use a lens cloth and be very careful.

          • @tdw: Use the hair dryer to heat up instead of water.

            • @merv198: hairdryers don't get hot enough and sustain the temperature, nor evenly spread the heat like a bowl of hot water does, in my experience. some frames are very thick.

              the idea with the hot water is you can keep increasing the temp i.e. microwaving it for a couple more minutes each time if your frames haven't softened sufficiently. and you have both hands to do this instead of having to do it one-handed. (last bit is more important if you're trying to adjust the arms only and don't want to take the lenses off.)

  • Thanks OP bought a pair of Rayban junior for kid.

  • +2

    Maui Jim where it’s at. If you’re going to blow the dollars that Oakley and Ray Ban can get to, I’d recommend looking at Maui Jim or Serengeti for a little bit more coin, the quality justifies the price. Plus their after sales support (in particular Maui) are extremely helpful and easy to order new lenses rather than a whole new pair of glasses.

    • What you've said about Maui is true but it's also easy enough to order replacement lenses for Ray Bans (and any other Lux frame) through any stockist - they just need to bother to do it for you.

      • very hard to get replacement crystal glass lenses once outside warranty for rayban or persol …..you can get plastic aftermarket replacement lenses easy but not the same quality as crystal glass ……..

        love my serengeti sunglasses …polarised photochomatic crystal glass lenses..they changed distributorship ,last year and for some reason many got dumped at 50% off on catch.

        • You can get replacement lenses as long as the model isn't discontinued and then a fair bit longer depending on that model's popularity?

      • +1

        The OEM replacement lenses cost nearly as much as the frames!

    There are certainly a lot of negative things to be said about Lux but comparing a branded, well marketed (and honestly well designed) product to a generic servo pair is like negating any clothing or other fashion deal because a $2 item from Kmart is just as warm / functional.

    These glasses are designated ‘low bridge’. They may not suit everyone.

    • yeah …low bridge , it’s why 50% off ….. wish camel camel camel worked on the rayban or sunglasses hit site …. could enable price tracking and get an email if popular pairs hit the price drop …..was lucky one year, they did 50% online for rb2140 wayfarer classic and the new wayfarers ….bought 4 pairs,

    • +3

      Good for going down Montague St then.

  • Coming from someone who bought Maui jins, great sunglasses, and they will replace it, so factor in them selling for $300 then divide the chance you'll break them and it's almost $150 per each pair, however I got out of that game.

    I bought 25 sunglasses for $70 including postage and tax, and their all polorised as each comes with a UV filter.

    Not bad for life price.

    • +4

      I don’t think this is accurate. I bought ray bans before they were acquired by luxotica and they were not that cheap and not in servos.

        • Interesting - I bought some Predator IIs in the USA in 1997, and they were somewhere in the $60-70 US ballpark.

          I can't knock what you are saying but I'd question the source given that my experience was different, and frankly, a $640m sale doesn't track with a product sold at $19 in servos.

        before luxotica it was bausch and lomb ….. still expensive ….

    Wow so many hatred for Ray Ban/Luxottica!
    I have a pair of clubmasters and I'm really happy with the build quality and lenses. I don't think it's fair to downvote a post just because it's a brand you hate.
