    I wonder if it's re-branded standard Acuvues, or maybe ultraflex/biomedics 55? Those were the 'go to' super low-price brands at wally-world when I worked there for a short time 13 years ago. Or maybe it's some crazy Chinese lenses we've never heard of that are made in an environment we don't really want to know about.

    Do they sell them retail cheaper than we can get them from Cooper?

    They are the cooper one day and will retail at $30 for a 90 pack.

    Doubt they will do well, Walmart had B&L one day at $30 for the 90 pack also and it did nothing.

    As I thought my cost fom Nassau is (wholesale pricing removed)for 90 pack!

    Good job Cooper!

    Our cost is lower than (wholesale pricing removed) from cooper, but not enough to sell them at $30.
