Please note, Sunglass Warehouse reserves the right to verify the customer's military or veteran status prior to issuing the discount.
Q: Why can't I use a prepaid Visa/debit card?
For security purposes, our system must check the billing address for a match to the card used for the purchase. Prepaid Visa/debit cards do not have an address that is "attached" to the account, and thus, our system cannot verify an address.
Q: Why won't my order go through?
Sometimes our system tells us exactly why an order doesn't go through, and sometimes it just tells us that the card was declined. There are a few different reasons why a credit card may be declined, including insufficient funds, incorrect expiration date, incorrect security code, and incorrect billing address.
Q: The style I want is out of stock. When will it be restocked?
We try to restock inventory as often as possible. Sometimes products are discontinued by manufacturers, and unfortunately, we cannot restock them on our site. If you have a specific question, please call our Customer Happiness team at 1-800-559-4209.
Q: I need a different size of a particular style. Can you customize it for me?
We are not the manufacturers of the sunglasses, and unfortunately we are unable to customize the frames in any way.
Q: How do I know what power/strength/magnification I need for reading sunglasses?
The best way to determine your reading glasses strength is to consult your eye doctor.
Q: I see a picture of a different color in a certain style below the big picture, but I can only select one color. Can I order the other color?
All available colors are listed in the dropdown menu. If a certain color does not appear in the dropdown menu, it is out of stock and unavailable for order.
Q: Why will it not allow me to order the amount of this style I want? It keeps adding a lower quantity than I entered to the cart.
The system will only allow the amount we have in stock to be added to the cart. This way, you will not pay for items we are unable to ship to you.
Q: Do you allow CODs (Collect on Delivery)?
We do not accept COD as a form of payment. We require payment before your order is shipped.
Q: Where do I enter a gift certificate code?
You can enter your gift certificate code at the bottom of the checkout page, under "Step 5: Payment Method." Select the "Gift Certificate" option, and enter your code in the available field. Gift certificate codes will not work in promotional code boxes.
Q: Where do I enter a promotional code?
You can enter the promotional code in the middle of the cart page. Check the box next to "Yes, I have a promotional code." Then, enter your code and click "Apply."
Q: The promotional code did not apply to my order. Can you apply it?
Yes, we can. Simply call us at 1-800-559-4209 to provide us with your order number.

You can calculate your shipping costs by adding your items to your cart, proceeding to the checkout page, and entering in the shipping address. For complete shipping information, please click here.
Q: How long does it take for my order to ship?
All orders placed Monday-Friday will be shipped on the next business day. If you place an order on a weekend or on a holiday, your order will ship the following business day.
Q: My confirmation number says the package was delivered, but I don't have it. Now what?
Please check with anyone in your house/apartment that may have received the package. If your order was shipped to an apartment complex, check with the front desk. You can also contact your local post office and speak with your mail carrier or delivery manager about where the package was left.
Q: I received my shipping confirmation email, but the tracking number does not work. Did my order ship?
Tracking information is not available right away. It often takes at least one business day for USPS to update tracking. If you try the tracking number too soon, you may find that there is no record of your package yet. Please check the tracking number again tomorrow.
Q: The shipping confirmation email does not have the second line of my address and that's necessary for delivery. The second line was confirmed in my initial confirmation email, so I know I entered it. What does this mean?
Sometimes our system does not include the second line in the shipping confirmation email. If the second line of your address was included in your original order confirmation email, you can rest assured that it was also included on your package. If you are still concerned, please give us a call at 1-800-559-4209.
Q: Does the free shipping apply to international orders?
All orders over $45 going to Canada and Australia receive free First-Class Mail International shipping. For full information, click here.

Yes! During checkout, you'll enter your billing address first at the top of the page. Then, select to ship to a different address. You'll enter the full shipping address second. If you choose to create an account, you will be able to save multiple addresses for future delivery.
Q: Can I have half the order sent one place and the other half sent another?
Unfortunately, we are unable to ship one order to multiple locations. If different destinations are required, please separate your purchases. Shipping must be paid for each, unless the orders meet the shipping threshold on their own.
Q: USPS said my order would be here yesterday, but it did not arrive. Will you refund my shipping?
USPS offers an expected delivery date on their tracking information. This is not a guaranteed delivery date, so the package is still on its way to you.
Q: Which countries do you ship to?

In order to qualify for free shipping, your order total must be over the $25 and $45 threshold, respectively, after discounts and coupon codes are applied.
