We don’t normally do reviews on things other than gadgets, but we thought this service was worth a review. Have you ever done the math on the blades you purchase at the store? Well, I did and and for what I was already paying it was a lot cheaper to go with the service from Dollar Shave Club. Watch the video below and then read through a full review.
Dollar Shave Club
They currently offer three different plans.
– The Humble Twin plan at $1.00 a month or $3.00 a month with shipping.
– The 4X Plan at $6.00 a month (that includes shipping).
– The Executive Plan at $9.00 a month (that includes shipping).
I personally am on The Humble Twin plan. What a lot of people don’t know is that once you sign up you have the option to then change to a every other month plan. So right now I am billed every other month and get deliveries every other month. For myself, 5 cartridges every other month is plenty. I shave every other day. And sometimes skip on the weekends. If you do the math, that is $18 a year for 30 cartridges. I now am paying a lot less than I was at my local store (was paying about $60 a year before) and always have a cartridge to swap out when they become dull.
Change to Every Other Month Plan
To change to the every other month plan, simply login to your account and under the plan options, click on the button that says “Get Delivery Every Other Month.”
Arrived in small cardboard container which is small enough to fit in my mail box, a plus! Takes about 3 days via USPS once purchased. After your first shipment, they simply arrive periodically every month (or every other month) depending on your plan.
Comes with two info cards, 5 cartridges (Humble Twin Plan), and Razor.
Here is the razor with the cartridge attached.
I was very impressed with the quality of the blades. Yes, on the Humble Twin Plan they are cheaper blades, but when you get so many I can throw them out every week and a half or so. I can actually shave more now and my blades are always sharper. Plus the best benefit, I am saving $42.00 a year and not having to pick them up myself. If you haven’t given Dollar Shave Club a look, take a moment, do the math, and you might be able to save yourself some money. And of course, shave more often!
