Buying Eclipse Viewing Glasses

From Yahoo News

If you're buying your specs through American Paper Optics, the nation's largest supplier of eclipse glasses, the company makes it easy for you with a countdown at the top of its website for how much longer you have to procrastinate. As of Tuesday morning, customers have little more than three days to make their purchase and take advantage of the company's express shipping across the country.

That's about the same amount of time allotted to Walmart+ online shoppers, as well as Prime members looking for reputable glasses on Amazon.

Many eclipse websites like and also sell a variety of eyewear products, along with plenty of other gadgets — but double check that estimated delivery date before checking out.
