Buying your Dad a razor is a decent and classic Father’s Day gift, but buying him a steady supply is genius! Dollar Shave Club offers great razors, delivered to your door every month, for next to nothing. Timbercreek is here to help you get better acquainted with their subscription service, and make your dad's year.

The Concept

Razors haven't changed much over the years. Sure, today they come in multiple blades, with slicks of aloe vera to guarantee a clean close shave. But the basic principle of a sharp blade that dulls over time, and regularly needs replacing, remains. Up until now, you pretty much had to hit the drug store on a regular basis to replenish your supply. Dollar Shave Club has changed the game by delivering razors to men at a lower cost. Finally. By eliminating the need for stores and the middleman, DSC can source a good product in bulk and deliver it to you for less than it costs you to drive to a drug store and pick up yourself.

Their pricing

It’s actually not a dollar per month as their name suggests. The base DSC package is just $3.50/month. It includes a free handle, and 5 2-blade cartridges. Where it works out to a dollar is in the 5 2-razor blades a month. Divided by $3.50 it works out to a small number with a decimal in it, so it’s actually less than a dollar.

The Competition

Customers claim to spend up to $40 a month on razors. While that’s excessive, one razor from a brand like Gillete can easily go for $5 to $15. Dollar Shave Club sells their products for almost half the price.


Great Simplicity

Dollar Shave Club offers 3 kinds of blades. That’s it. Three. This translates into an easy-to-buy product. Cheap and easy to buy is a great combination.

Get it for Dad
