    prolly but you could always sign up for one of those 0% cc's and stick it on that, prolly smarter esp since glasses arent that expensive!

    Being 17 automatically denies you finance, you have to be 18 to sign any sort of credit agreement.

    Best bet is to ask a parent to use a credit card or something.

    Fill that HC2 form (or whatever it is number they have it these days) and you can get money off.

    I'm also interested in this. I'm in desperate need of a new pair of glasses for when i'm not wearing my contacts because I now can't see much out of my old pair. Due to my prescription i'm looking at around £350 for a new pair which I can't afford at the min.

    I can't get finance when i'm 17? I thought the age was 17? Anywhoo, i'll just get my brother to take it out for me and pay him.

    Thanks for the replies :)

    Basic Contract law, under 18 cannot give receipt or sign contract. If they some how give you finance, they can't claim it back.

    Does anyone know if I will qualify for these two entitlements?

    I am aged "19 or under" and I am in full time education meaning I qualify for 25% off. But then at the same time I can also get an NHS discount because of the same reason, I am "19 or under" and I am in full time education.

    Surely the NHS agreement is seperate from the SpecSavers 25% promotional discount.

    I'm sure it's "18 or under" for the NHS and "in full time education".

    I'll have a look tommorow and let you know.

    The specsavers part of it is if they can claw some money back from the NHS then you get the discount.

    Same pair ?

    £125 for quality glasses is cheap. Mine cost more than 3 times that.
