Almost a year ago, I wrote a another review of SmartBuyGlasses, which turned out to be one of my most popular blog posts.
I don’t write many reviews, but when SmartBuyGlasses contacted me a few weeks ago to offer me yet another pair of designer sunglasses in exchange for a SmartBuyGlasses review, of course I said, “yes, please!” Who wouldn’t?
I’m usually pretty conservative in my choice of sunglasses, choosing classic “Jackie-O” styles. This time, I chose a bold pair of Dolce & Gabbana shades in gold! I had them with me in Amsterdam the other week and barely got to wear them all weekend because Vicky’s daughter and her friend kept “borrowing” them!
SmartBuyGlasses Review: Are they counterfeit?
In an attempt to clarify once and for all whether SmartBuyGlasses sells counterfeit sunglasses, I brought the sunglasses into Dolce & Gabbana on P.C. Hooftstraat (Amsterdam’s luxury shopping street) to have them authenticated. The verdict is that the glasses are in fact authentic.
They currently sell for $237 (down from $316) and are also available in gold with red lenses, and in black with grey lenses.
Best Price Guarantee
I’ve also been luxury lusting after a pair of Prada Minimal Baroque sunglasses, so I thought I’d give SmartBuyGlasses a try as a civilian and see if I was treated any differently when there wasn’t an explicit SmartBuyGlasses review at stake.
I love luxury goods, but true to my frugal ways, I like to find the best possible price. I found the Pradas selling online for €118, which was quite a bit less than the €186.95 that SmartBuyGlasses was asking. SmartBuyGlasses has a “Best Price Guarantee” so I put it to the test, contacting them over chat. The price difference was over the usual limit, so it needed special approval, but they got back to me the next day saying that the price match had been approved!
In contrast, Shade Station would not honor their supposed “Price Match on All Products” because they “don’t understand how the shop can sell for that price.” Not my circus, not my monkey. I was asking them to price match a authorized Prada dealer with a 4 star TrustPilot rating, so it’s not like I was asking them to match a shady AliExpress link. Bullet dodged.
I ordered my Prada sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses on Saturday and they were delivered about three days later. They’re beautiful, authentic, and were one hell of a deal!
So, that’s three for three in favor of SmartBuyGlasses. I hope you’ve found this SmartBuyGlasses review helpful :)
Disclosure: I received a pair of sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses in exchange for an honest review. I didn’t receive any compensation for this post and all opinions are my own.
