'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
The deals are hot during Amazon's Prime Day sale this summer, especially on popular sunglasses brands. Most notably, Ray-Ban and Oakley are discounting some of their coolest glasses.
For Ray-Ban, there's an Amazon Prime savings discount of 30% or $38.70 off on a pair of classic rectangular sunglasses. These come in either black/gold frames with dark grey lenses or rubber black frames with dark blue lenses. Either option costs about $90, and the lens width is 55 millimeters.
Those who want a larger frame and a different lens color should consider the Ray-Ban brown gradient Andrea Square sunglasses, which used to be priced at $186 and are now $92. All Ray-Bans have 100% UV protection and come with a case and lens cloth.
At a slightly higher price point, but still under $100, of course, are the Ray-Ban Erika Round sunglasses. These have a lens width of 54 millimeters, so they're not as large as the Andrea Square model. The light Havana/ dark green color frame/lens combination looks slightly different because of the unexpected color but still flatters the wearer.
Oakleys are generally larger and have a unique style. The Oakley Men's Fuel Cell Wrap sunglasses in the color matte black with grey lenses are 25% off today. Oakley's lightweight lenses offer 100% UV protection and filtering of all UVA, UVC, and harmful blue light up to 400 mm. Talk about comprehensive protection! The frame is made of a strong, flexible thermoplastic.
The Oakley Women's Cohort Rectangular sunglasses are also on sale this Prime Day, with Prime savings of $41.10 off the original price. The amethyst/black gradient color is stunning, and the lens width is a large 62 millimeters. The sunglasses have the lightweight, durable technology and stress-resistant thermoplastic frame that make Oakleys worth it.
