I still think it is crazy that so many people have still not seen this video. Constantly I find myself in a conversation where I bring up Dollar Shave Club. I never used to talk about my razors or really even care about them; that is until I joined the club. Every time I would have to go to the store to pick up razors, I would literally be pissed about how much it cost to shave my face.

HOW DOLLAR SHAVE CLUB WORKS

It’s simple, select one of their great razors, pay one low monthly fee, and they send these razors right to your door.

FANCY BRAND SHAVE TECH

Their website says, “No more over-paying for fancy brand name shave tech.” I wanted to put that to the test since all I previously used is considered fancy brand name shave tech. The fancy brand name shave tech I was used to be using was Gillette Fusion blades. The Gillette Fusion blades for a package of four cost me $18.99 at my local store. F that big time! A four pack would last me about a month or if I pushed the limits, a month and a half. So on average I would buy about 9 to 10 packs of blades a year costing me on average about $170-$190 per year.

OUR BLADES ARE F**KING GREAT!

With Dollar Shave Club, I chose the middle option costing me $6/month. My logic at the time was that I would get a four pack of blades per month, like I was currently already purchasing at the store, but only pay $6/month. Already I am saving money, but, it gets better. Dollar Shave Club’s blades are F**KING Great and as a result, they last way longer than the old blades I was previously using. Literally, I have 4 packs stacked up in my bathroom right now because these new blades last so long. Pretty soon, I will be able to cancel my account, use my current back log of blades for a few months and then resign up once I run out! Saving me even more money!

I started using Dollar Shave Club last March meaning I’ve spent a total of $60 for the year of 2012. Huge F’n difference than the previous years before Dollar Shave Club! Literally saved myself about $100. To see how I spent some of my savings, refer to my trip out to the World Series of Beer Pong in Las Vegas!

SUPPORTING THE START-UP

Beyond just loving how much money I am saving and how smooth my neck is after a shave, I like everything about this company. Dollar Shave Club is young, comedic, and very easy to deal with. In fact, twice now, Dollar Shave Club has messed up my orders. I of course did not even know that anything happened with my order since I have a backlog of razors saved up, but, I got an apology email and a credit to my account anyways. Michael Dublin, the owner, has created a young and innovative idea, which I now fully support.
