Too bad the sunglasses and bifocals/progressives are so expensive. Great deal for people who only need single vision.

Why would you pay for insurance? You're not the shipper they are. If you don't receive the product, you don't pay for it. I see this alot on eBay too. Sellers expecting buyers to pay for insurance. eBay rules are the same; you don't receive product or if it's damaged in shipment, you don't pay. That's not only the rules, that's the law.

On a whim I check Coastal's prices on my brand of contact lens. Their price came out 20% more that VisionDirect's prices.

Note to self: Don't get legal advice on Internet message forums. It's often wrong.
An example of FOB law--
"(1) Unless otherwise agreed the term F.O.B. (which means "free on board") at a named place, even though used only in connection with the stated price, is a delivery term under which:
When the term is F.O.B. the place of shipment, the seller must at that place ship the goods in the manner provided in this article (Section 7-2-504) and bear the expense and risk of putting them into the possession of the carrier; or When the term is F.O.B. the place of destination, the seller must at his own expense and risk transport the goods to that place and there tender delivery of them in the manner provided in this article (Section 7-2-503); When under either (a) or (b) the term is also F.O.B. vessel, car or other vehicle, the seller must in addition at his own expense and risk load the goods on board. If the term is F.O.B. vessel the buyer must name the vessel and in an appropriate case the seller must comply with the provisions of this article on the form of bill of lading (Section 7-2-323)."
That is, "FOB origin" puts full ownership of the product in the BUYER'S hands at departure. It is then up to the BUYER to deal with any losses directly with the freight company. This is the MOST COMMON FOB declaration used today.
