Though they are by no means the most frugal razor on the market, I think that Shick’s Intuition Razors are the most fantabulous. I have been a convert ever since the first time I tried them and not once have I strayed back to the regular shaving cream and razor routine.
Here’s the thing – I’ve never once knicked myself with this razor. They last quite a while – both the soap part of the razor and the razors themselves. When traveling, you only have to pack one thing – granted, the Intuition is a little clunky, but I think it’s completely worth it.
The downside to the razor is that they aren’t particularly cheap. A new razor with two refills, or just a pack of three refills, can retail from anywhere between $8.99 to $11.99! I am always on the hunt for coupons to make my little luxury feel a little more sensible. This week in the Sunday paper is the mother of all coupons. There’s a coupon for $4 off a new razor or a pack of refills! This is the first time I’ve seen a coupon this good!
But wait, there’s more – these razors and refill cartridges are on sale at Target
this week for $6.99, which is the lowest sale price I have ever seen. (Keep in mind that I live in Chicago where things rarely go on good sale!) AND, if you buy two packs of razors or cartridges, Target will give you a FREE $5 Target Gift Card!
So here’s the math I figured out as I fully plan on taking advantage of this deal. I am going to make sure I get two set of coupons today so this all works out.
Schick Intuition Refill Cartridge cost @ Target: $6.99 x 2 = $13.98
Coupon: $4.00 x 2 = $8.00
Total Paid at Store: $5.98
Less the Gift Certificate Received: $5.00
Total Cost for 6 refill cartridges: $0.98
That’s right – 98 cents for 6 refill cartridges, when these things normally cost 8-10 times that amount for just 3 cartridges.
So if you’re like me and you love Schick’s Intuition Razors, I strongly suggest taking advantage of this deal – I’m not sure there’ll be another like it this summer and it never hurts to have too many razor cartridges on hand as the warm months approach!
