Make a Wish List, win a wish part 2. Today: seeing and sea-ing, from Warby Parker.

About Vivek Wagle

Are you making some wishes yet?

Yesterday, we told you about our new Wish Lists and even gave away some cool free stuff.

Why stop when you have a good thing going?

Today’s special Wish List is from Dave and Neil, co-founders of Warby Parker. We are amazed by the work that Warby Parker does. Sure, they make glasses and sunglasses. But they’re so much more. They not only put formerly inaccessible design within reach for most people, but also create a tightly knit community via their mission of giving away a pair of glasses for each one purchased.

As it happens, Dave and Neil love the sea. That’s kind of appropriate for folks who let you see better. (Apologies. That pun was nearly unforgivable.) So they’ve picked out their favorite Must-See Ocean Views on Airbnb.

And, of course, we have another surprise for you. If you create an amazing Wish List and tweet in by 11:59pm California time TODAY, you’ll have a chance to win prizes from both Warby Parker and Airbnb. See all the details on Warby Parker’s Blog.

    Since the Wish Lists feature has been added I have lost most of my favorites. I now only have 5 items in my wish list but had many more favorites. Are they lost forever or can I retrieve these?

    Hi Bill – some users aren’t seeing their old Favorites. We are working on a fix. This should be taken care of soon. Apologies for the inconvenience!
