Quay’s BOGO Sale: Stock Up on Sunglasses + Jewelry

The sun’s finally out and Quay wants to help you celebrate.

The already affordable Australian sunglasses brand is running a BOGO promotion: Buy one pair of sunglasses or blue-light glasses, or an item of jewelry, and get one for free (Prescription lenses are not included in the deal.)

If you think about it, sunglasses are eyecare and skincare wrapped up into one: they protect your eyes while stopping your perpetual summer squint wrinkles from forming. 

It’s hard to go wrong with a classic pair of aviators ($65), especially when they come in 9 different colors, but I’m seeing the BOGO situation as an opportunity to try something funky for that free pair. I’d be channeling my inner Kim Kardashian with these ($75), while this pair ($55) feels like the perfect balance of trendy and classic.

Finding out Quay also sells jewelry was like finding out Hugh Jackman can sing, a pleasant surprise that’s greatly enriched my life. They focus mostly on chunky gold pieces, some more classic, like this herringbone necklace that’s the perfect building block for a neck party, or these sweet dangly hearts. I love their section of charms to add to any existing necklace and you’ll find me sporting this peace sign the second it arrives at my door (easy with their flat rate $5 shipping to the contiguous U.S.).

This deal is perfectly timed as we head into sunnier days ahead, but it won’t be around long. The sale goes through Thursday morning (3 a.m. ET), so snag your new favorite summer accessory.

  1. Agree with the comments. Once Liz sold MSA it has gone way downhill. Spoilers appear days after other websites for example. I actually did buy from this sale but that post was bizarre

  2. Agree with everyone. Who im the H E double hockey sticks thought this was well done and approved it it to be uploaded. This is straight up ridiculous. This site is tanking more and more everyday. How about actually listening to the commentary on here by the people who used to frequent this site and now find it extremely disappointing? How about acknowledging what people are saying instead of only responding to people who praise you? Maybe send pit a survey to your subscribers asking what they want/don’t want. In the end, by not caring, you will be the one losing out.

  3. I’m happy to know about the sale. I’ve been wanting to buy glasses from Quay.

  4. I agree with all these ladies. What is going on with MSA lately?

  5. Okay not to be rude, I genuinely mean this as constructive feedback, but this writer consistently has a tone that is not in line with the rest of what I see on MSA. It’s like an off putting mix of research paper and love letter and what everyone else I’ve seen takes a subtler and more substantial approach with more in depth information. MSA is fundamentally advertising and I respect that, but if the audience (me) feels that I am being advertised to then I am actually less inclined to make a purchase and lose trust in the site. There is a massive difference between the parasocial relationship and the oh I heard about this deal from a “friend” that is what is expected on MSA vs whatever this is.

    And formatting. I know different people write for this site but there should be some level of standardization as far as the shape of the reviews, where intros/price info/links are. People come here for information, spoilers, and reviews. This post is a poorly formatted middle school love letter that happens to hyperlink to a sale.

    • yeah. these sentences in particular:
      “if you think about it, sunglasses are eyecare and skincare wrapped up into one: they protect your eyes while stopping your perpetual summer squint wrinkles from forming. ”
      This sentence just screams “oh god what am I supposed to say about sunglasses, an incredibly pedestrian item?” It’s like having to justify the point of socks by saying “if you think about it, socks are really like little shirts for your feet! they keep them warm and prevent feet wrinkles”.

      “Finding out Quay also sells jewelry was like finding out Hugh Jackman can sing, a pleasant surprise that’s greatly enriched my life. ”
      Again, this sentence shows that the writer is clearly searching around desperately for things to say to fill space. It’s actually a pretty funny sentence in its non-sequitur-ness.

      This is not a knock on the writer at all, by the way. I do not envy her job — I’m not sure if I would’ve done better if I had to write 300 words about sunglasses. She should not be made to fill up space with drivel that she clearly finds painful to write and us to read. I’m not even knocking the whole ad aspect, by all means make a post about the sale. No need to write paragraphs about it though.

    • When I read this it sounded like a radio ad and while reading I had this exaggerated radio mans voice in my mind.

  6. This is a nice brand that was featured in FabFitFun a few years back, but this post is seriously out of left field with the tone and that’s what makes it feel off-putting to me. A nice post would be to simply say the brand has a promo, add the link to their site and a “check out our review” for whatever box(es) have featured their stuff

    I like MSA having more deal alerts on subscription box related brands but I just want the facts and where they’ve been featured in boxes before. I don’t need swooning and fangirling. If it’s genuinely someone’s fave brand then say “Editor Megan recommends (fave product)” or whatever and that’s nice too but cringe-worthy lovey dovey nonsense and minimal actual content is not making me want to buy from them

    This post did not have any sort of review component, link to a review or even the standard format for how the link was embedded. I think I get what the intent was but the result is untidy, off putting and very off brand for MSA

  7. There have been a lot of odd (and off-putting) inclusions here lately.

  8. This is an odd inclusion for this site.
