If you're looking for sunglasses deals, you're in luck. Sunglasses happen to be available fairly cheap year round and a limited amount of digging is required to uncover the best sunglasses deals.
It should go without saying that before making a purchase, you should check at least one comparison site, like Shopping.com or PriceGrabber, and a coupon site, like Deals.com, to be sure you're getting the best sunglasses deals and taking advantage of available coupons.
Following is a rundown of where to look for sunglasses deals.
Numerous online retailers that specifically deal in clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, and the like are also good resources for sunglasses deals -- especially the clearance bins. 6pm.com is one example. Currently there are more than 150 UVA/UVB protection brand name sunglasses listed for less than $50 in the clearance section of the site. Endless.com is another good source, and we saw a pair of UV protection Identity sunglasses for just $14.95. Zappos.com features more than 250 UV protection sunglasses deals that are certainly worth a look. TigerEye Store.com specializes in sunglasses and offers tons of sunglasses deals, including some for JiMarti -- our top choice in cheap sunglasses -- for prices ranging between $19.95 and $29.95. Note that both 6pm.com and Endless.com score three stars with consumer reviewers at ResellerRatings, while Zappos earns half a star more. Zappos's reviewers remark that free shipping both ways is a big draw, the return policy is accommodating, and most items arrive within two business days. TigerEye Store is not yet rated.
Online superstores also offer sunglasses deals. Amazon, for example, displays thousands of cheap sunglasses and offers our second choice, Sunbelt sunglasses, which are priced between $20 and $30. Overstock is another site to check out. It features more than 400 sunglasses deals for less than $50, including brand names such as Guess, Michael Kors, Nike, BlackFlys (one of our picks), and much more.
Retailers such as Walmart, Target, and Kmart also have super cheap sunglasses deals. Walmart has many kids UV protection sunglasses deals starting at about $4.50 while Target sells primarily its brand names -- Xhilaration, Mossimo, and Merona; most are $16.99.
If you're looking for something to wear for beach sports, water sports, and the like, retailers like Dick's Sporting Goods and Sports Authority are sure to have sunglasses deals. When we looked, Sports Authority had several pairs of BlackFlys sunglasses ranging in price from $39 to $59.
On the other hand, if you're on the prowl for something fashionable and cheap, Charlotte Russe and Forever 21 both offer some of the cheapest sunglasses deals we've seen. Charlotte Russe has sunglasses deals at $10 for two, while Forever 21 has them priced at $9 for two, and we even saw some for $3.50. When we looked most pairs were UV protection sunglasses, but at prices this low you'll want to check before making your buy.

Users give Adi Designs sunglasses mixed reviews. Most positive comments focus on the stylish looks, but looks alone don't make a quality pair of sunglasses. Adi Designs sunglasses, which are available for men, women, and children, include lenses made of plain plastic. Some models don't provide 100 percent UV protection, few have polarized lenses, and there's no warranty. Read more »
