Dollar Shave Club has gotten a lot of attention on Facebook and Twitter this week for their hilarious video, “DollarShaveClub.com – Our Blades Are F***ing Great.”
In addition to being funny, it’s a good idea. Their “About Us” page starts…
Like most good ideas, The Dollar Shave Club started with two guys who were pissed off about something and decided to do something about it…
And they are solving a problem. Maybe not a monumental one, but I regularly find myself on my last razor and use it too long. I could buy them in bulk, but I haven’t.
So, if their razors are quality at a good price, that’s great. I’ll know soon, because I ordered the 4X from the Dollar Shave Club. That’s their mid-priced option at $6/month (including shipping and handling).
And then there is the matter of their affiliate program.
It’s not a traditional affiliate program with commission, but rather the Dollar Shave Club pays out in store credit.
Each time you refer a new member, you earn a month of razors from them.
They’re off to a good start here. Now I just need to see if I like their razors.
