Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses Sale

Thanks to its timeless design, celebrity endorsements, and pop culture references, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer is one of the most coveted pairs of sunglasses in the world.

It’s not the cheapest either, with pairs costing around R1500 to R2000, making people look for any Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses sale to help them save a few bucks.

While saving some money feels great, when buying Wayfarers, the focus should not be too much on scoring a discount but on the quality and authenticity.

Many buyers, in their quest to save, risk buying defective or even fake Wayfarers.

Don’t fall for the same trap. In this article, let’s talk about the different Ray-Ban Wayfarer scams, how to avoid them like the plague, and more!

Is the Ray-Ban Sale 2020 Legit?

On January 2020, posts about a Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses Sale that promises to knock off up to 90% off its original price started circulating in Instagram.

Clicking the link on the post takes users to a website that pretends to be Ray-Ban’s official website, but really is a phishing website designed to steal your personal details and Instagram login information.

While the offer is obviously too good to be true, it’s still tempting enough for some unwitting IG users.

Once victims’ accounts are hijacked, the culprits can use it to spread the scam post to even more people.

Although these posts are now mostly gone, it’s not far-fetched to assume that another scam like it will surface in the future.

To protect yourself from scams like the Wayfarer scam, keep these important tips in mind:

  • If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
    Ray-Ban rarely goes on sale, so them slashing almost 90% of the Wayfarer’s original price has almost zero probability.
  • Don’t click on random links.
    Link shorteners or cloakers are often used by advertisers to shorten long links, but these tools can also be used by scammers to hide the real website URL.
  • To protect yourself, don’t click on “disguised” links (e.g. bitly.com/dgfhuyj) especially if you don’t trust the user or page that gave the link.
  • Study the website URL.

    Phishing websites try to imitate the original URL. For example, a phishing website of Ray-Ban may have the URL “raybans.com” which resembles the original URL “ray-ban.com”.
    To find out the real website address of a brand, type the brand on Google and the first result will usually be their website.


  • Only buy from sellers you trust.
    It’s now easier more than ever to put up a fly-by-night online store. Huge discounts may be tempting, but keep in mind that you should also consider the legitimacy of the seller and the items they sell.
    To stay on the safe side, only buy from eyeglasses store that have a proven record of past transactions.
  • Look for customer reviews on third-party websites.
    Here’s a secret: Some web applications allow online store owners to fabricate fake reviews of their store and products to seem more legitimate.
    Considering this, it’s really hard to tell if customer reviews published on the online store are real.

A workaround is to look for customer reviews on third-party websites like Trustpilot. Trustpilot has a software that detects fake reviews, and while it may not be perfect, it gives a higher sense of accountability.

Facebook page reviews are also reliable since the page admins cannot edit or remove any user reviews.

More About Ray-Ban Wayfarer

1. Why are Ray-Bans so Cheap on eBay?

Some customers ask why Ray-Bans on eBay are a lot cheaper than the original cost, and there are only two answers for this.

One is the item may be previously owned. While that is not necessarily a bad thing, you will not be sure if the item is in a 100% good condition.

Also, it won’t have a warranty. You also won’t be sure if the pair is authentic in the first place.

Second, the Wayfarer is counterfeit. While eBay is a good platform for online selling, it’s largely unregulated so pretty much anyone can sell anything there.

Unless you trust the person or company you’re buying from, don’t trust eBay sellers that offer too low prices of Wayfarers.

2. How You Can Tell if a Ray-Ban Wayfarer is Fake?

It’s hard to tell if a Wayfarer is authentic just by looking at a photograph. But there are a few things you can check to verify if it’s authentic.
  • Check that one of the lenses (usually the left lens) of the Wayfarer has an “RB” etched onto it. The “RB” etching should be crisp, and it should be etched, not painted on. “Ray-Ban” should be written in white in the top corner of the other lens. If it’s a polarized lens, “Ray-Ban P” should be written.
  • The model number and size details of the pair should be written on the inside left temple arm. The right temple arm should have a “Ray-Ban” badge attached with pins rather than glued.
  • It should come with a leather case with a round embossed or printed logo that says “100% UV protection – Ray-Ban – Sunglasses by Luxottica”.
  • New models come with a cleaning cloth featuring the Ray-Ban logo.
  • Real Wayfarers have oversized metal hinges.

3. What Face Shape are Best for Ray-Ban Wayfarers?

Wayfarer is probably one of the few models in the market that suit all types of face shapes.

Whether you have a round, oval, diamond, or heart-shaped face, Wayfarers will look great on you.

There’s also enough variety in terms of colour and frame shape so you can choose a design according to your preference.

If you have a heart-shaped face, the thin nose bridge and sunglass rims of the original Wayfarer is the best choice for you.

For round-shaped faces, a Wayfarer with an angular or straight square shape will work great. For diamond-faced individuals, it’s best to go with classic Wayfarers with curved frames.

You should also consider which colour of Wayfarer will look best on your skin colour.

4. What is the Difference Between Ray-Ban Wayfarer and New Wayfarer?

Luxottica recently rolled out a new Wayfarer, and everyone’s wondering how it differs from the original Wayfarer.

The New Wayfarer comes in several cool frame and lens colours while the Original comes in 4 black and brown colours. But the main differences are in the angle of the tilt and frame size.

The Original Wayfarer is known for the distinctive trapezoidal frame featuring a forward angle called pantoscopic tilt.

This tilt lets more sunlight to come in from the top depending on your face shape and nose bridge. It comes in two sizes: 50 and 54.

The New Wayfarer got rid of that tilt and got a little more modern. Despite that, they still have that chic retro-classic look.

They feel more comfortable to wear and fit better without letting in as much sunlight.

It also comes in smaller sizes: 52 and 55. Even though the number is bigger, it’s actually a smaller fit than the original Wayfarer.

Also, the New Wayfarer is available in more than 10 colours, so there’s definitely a Wayfarer for everyone.

Ray-Ban Wayfarers remain a popular choice for anyone looking for a classic design with reliable quality and durability. If you’re looking for an authentic pair of Wayfarer, browse our collection by clicking here.
