VisionDirect.com Offers Contact Lens Customers a New Way to Pay
--Auto Reorder Provides Convenient Automatic Way to Spread Payments and Deliveries
BELLEVUE, Wash., June 9, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Vision Direct, Inc., a leading online
retailer of contact lenses and a wholly-owned subsidiary of drugstore.com, inc. (Nasdaq: DSCM), today announced Auto
Reorder, a convenient way for customers to set up smaller automatic payments with more frequent deliveries. Customers
usually order and pay for a supply of contact lenses that lasts six months to a year. With Auto Reorder, customers can choose
to automatically spread their payments and deliveries. For example, if a customer prefers to pay monthly, they can set up Auto
Reorder to have their contacts automatically shipped every month, and pay only when the order ships. The customer will be
charged for one month at a time, rather than being charged for a larger order.
"We want to help our customers maintain healthy vision during these economically challenging times, and we know that for
many it's much easier to pay in smaller installments more frequently," said Stan Pavlovsky, Vice President of Vision Direct.
"Vision Direct started offering this convenient payment option recently and as customers come to the site to take advantage of
our low prices, many are choosing pay-as-you-go."
Vision Direct is focused on delivering savings, convenience, and value to customers while supporting their needs for healthy
vision. The new Auto Reorder feature is a timely addition to customer value programs for contact lenses.
