This blog features a family of four mostly normal people doing very boring everyday things. I love to get good deals & coupon finds & will be sharing them with you as I find. I love to read & will also share some good finds & not so good finds, including FREE books once in awhile. We love to eat & do it with gusto so will let you know of any good or terrible places we find around the country too.
First I would like to express that its quite a deal you have going with VPS. VPS is the crappoor man'shideousbasically non existent eye coverage that my husband's life sucking employer job generally gives us along with our crappoor man'shideousbasically non existent medical insurance coverage as a "perk." A "perk" that costs us about $100 EVERY WEEK for just him and myself. This does not include our two children. (Oh sorry I digress this was not a rant about health care or the husband's job. Back to the story.)
Its a great hook up you have with VPS. I call them to make sure I know which providers are covered and they will pay the WHOPPING measly 20% of the bill. You are the first they mention so I make my appointment. The husband and I both get STANDARD eye exams and I get a contact exam and sample to try out. I go to the desk to make my follow up for my contacts and am told the price. AFTER VPS. $340. That's right. Did you know America's Best will give me exactly what you gave me for $60!! NEVER again will I even attempt to use a VPS provider. Obviously I saved...ZERO. It actually cost me $220 to go to you. You have friendly staff but not THAT friendly. F off. Thanks for making me use 1/3 of my flex for the year to get repaid this OUTRAGEOUS amount. Jerks.
