Previous pretty good luck with Stanton, although the price of the one you pay for on "Buy One Get One" is usually about $250 - $300, which you could get 2 pairs for at lots of places.  Regardless, this is about not standing behind their warranty.

In August of 2010 I bought 2 pairs and paid extra for the 2-year extended warranty on frames and lenses, assured this was a good investment.  My main pair they had to re-make a couple times, due to various errors, including one pair that did not have a screw in one of the temples - pretty bizarre.  They had to special-order the new frame, no biggie though it caused an extra 2 week's delay.

Last week I went in because the weld on one of my temples broke, I would be covered as I was in my 23rd month.  I was advised I could get up to 3 pairs of the frames, so I said go for it, he got them all ordered up, and it turned out the SKU was wrong or something, and they could no longer get my frames.  which means I would need new lenses too (no-line bifocals with scratch coating and UV protectiona dn a couple other "treatments").

Cory advised me "we're in a gray area here", but he could offer me the 2-fer deal on 2 new pairs, with 20% co-pay on the lenses - which would be $51.20 for BOTH pairs - he repeated that and I clarified - and he would use in-store coupons for all coatings and treatments etc., the only extra being $19 (per pair) for Transitions treatmetn if I wanted that.  Also a free eye exam (which is no big deal, always included anyways).

Went in with wife a few days later to pick out frames, Cory then told me he "made a small error in what I told you" and "overstepped my bounds", now it would be $51.80 copay on the lenses PER PAIR, so twice as much!

We argued, I told him I couldn't believe they would be willing to lose a repeat customer over $50, but he said too bad so sad.

I will never refer anyone there again (I had referred wuite a few, even defended tehm when others spoke badly of them).
