Gillette Shave Club = Scam:

I just went over to their website and looked at the plans and I did NOT like what I saw. According to their own website, 1 blade is suppose to last a month and they ship 4 blades every 4 months.

The Gillette Shave Club is charging $4.90 U.S. Dollars per month and you are only getting 3 shipments per year at a cost of $58.00 U.S. Dollars for only 12 cartridges per year. So how can that be a good deal?
