Dollar Shave Club

I did a search on the forum and saw Dollar Shave was mentioned in a few threads, but no threads about this company. Can anyone recommend this service? I'm at the point where I need new razor blades, and not wanting to drop $50+ at Costco for a huge supply.

(Currently using Gillette Fusion)

Blades & Razors (his & hers) are one of the things we use our SDM Optimum Points for on Cash In Events. Takes a lot of the pain out of this overpriced item.

Looked at Dollar Shave Club when it first came to Canada... Was not impressed by Shipping Fees or buying in bulk. Seems now that they've been around awhile, not all their reviews are positive either (mostly relating to quality of the blades / shave).

Double edged razor is the way to be, imo.
Grab a Merkur on sale or a cheapie model of something else ($7->40ish), then grab a pack of astra blades ($15ish).

Straight razor. I paid about $225 for mine and the leather strop about 15 years ago. The only ongoing cost is a professional sharpening once every 5 years or so for $5-8.

Saved me tons of money over the last 15 years.

Try it for free for first month with promo code. Might be US only though.

I've been with Dollar Shave Club now for maybe two years now. I get new blades every other month for about $7 w/taxes. Never had a bad experience. Blades shave pretty good.

I used to be with DSC but after some research doing out they are just a middle man and infact the blades are made by Dorco. I switched to buying directly from the manufacturer and saved even more.

I tried out DSC about a year ago, and while the it wasn't a terrible experience I didn't however like that they offered products that were only available in the USA so for that reason I'm out. I can get a shaver with blades that are equally as good for around the same cost at Walmart and if I'm gonna go there to get my shaving cream and aftershave I might as well just buy my blades there too.
