Snapchat Spectacles: They changed the snapping game and can be seen on the faces of every trendy hipster at this summer’s major music festivals.

Now, Snapchat’s parent company Snap Inc. is making it even easier for you to get your hands on these shades by selling them on Amazon.

Before today, you could only buy Spectacles in a few different places. When they first came out, your only option was to live in a city with an interactive vending machine that only sold Spectacles, called a Snapbot. The only issue was that these Snapbots disappeared after being in a location for a day, so you had to be quick if you really wanted a pair. 

Snap Inc. eventually loosened the rules and did the most sensible thing. In February, the company started selling Spectacles through its online store. Still, it would take five to 10 days for the sunglasses to show up in your mailbox. And in the fast-paced world we live in, that’s simply too long to wait.

Enter everyone’s favorite online shopping behemoth: Amazon

The Spectacles are now available on Amazon.

Starting today, you can buy Spectacles for $130 on Amazon. So why shop at Amazon instead of directly from Snap Inc.? If you’re a Prime member (which you should be if you’re not already), your shiny new pair of Spectacles can be in your hand just two days after you order them. You can get them in black, coral, and teal.

Amazon is selling the Spectacles for the same price as the official Spectacles store, so there’s no need to worry about a markup. 

And this isn’t the first item Snap Inc. has decided to sell on Amazon, either. You can head to the online retail giant for other official Snapchat gear like these playing cards or this beach towel

We can’t really recommend any of the other official Snapchat gear — but Spectacles with two-day shipping is a no-brainer.
