Dollar Shave Club Ad Login/Join

Watching US Open and being inundated with these stupid ads about this dork going into a drug store and no one will sell him a razor. Really? Has anyone EVER had a problem buying a razor in a drug store? How is this supposed to make me want to "join" Dollar Shave Club rather than throw a brick through the screen?

Have been using them for about a year. Email when blades are about to ship includes specials. (The shave butter is very good.) Overall, the service and product are very good.

The package always has an inset with interesting information. In fact some of it can be found online

Overall, no complaints and a good product.

And a very annoying ad, particularly on the 37th-38th viewing .

I don't buy razors in the drug store anymore because I switched to safety razor shaving about five years ago. But around here the razor blades are often locked up and you have to track down an employee to open them up. Which can be a pain in the butt.

Regardless I hate watching the same ad over and over again.

I find their ads somewhat amusing. Now seeing it 20 times in a row, that would bother me.

So there really are places that lock up the razors! Amazing! What's special about razors? Are thieves more likely to use razors than toothbrushes and deodorant?

Steal them from the drug store then resell them to the shady gas station in the city, then they resell them for much cheaper than they would be in the drug store.

Weird! I have a beard so only need razor for periphery. I buy the bag of Bic disposables. Work great. Cheap as dirt and a bag lasts forever. Don't why anyone uses anything else.

Does any of the stuff actually cost a dollar? I always found this annoying. Dollar Store, but stuff is all different prices, Airlines with miles that don't equal real miles.

They've found a way to make meth out of them. A prescription is now required.

I switched to safety razors 3 years ago. I'll never go back to plastic junk multibladed slimestrip razors. I paid a hundred ish dollars for a Merkur 3 piece razor and order Wilkinson Sword blades in bulk wherever I can find a good deal. A 100 pack of Wilkinson Sword blades from eBay is 9$ with free shipping and typically lasts me about 2-1/2 years.

The merkur razor will last several lifetimes.

I shave for $0.75 per month.

I use a Gillette twin blade that is hard to find and expensive as hell when you do . I've been buying mine off of Ebay for a couple of years at about 2/3 cost of the drug store .
