I see that Lenscatalogue has implemented an idea that we have been kicking around for a while - a $5 discount for people who "abandon" their shopping cart. Since they do not have a newsletter, I tried to "sign up" for their mailings by going through the checkout process up to the point where they have my email address, and then stopping. I was not surprised to get an email from them asking if I needed help to complete the order (we do that, too), but I was surprised that I got a $5 off offer (especially since I was ordering in GBP!). Here is the email...

Nice! However, don't forget to compare prices - both VisionDirect.co.uk and Lensbase.com are lower priced, and highly reliable.
