  1. Unavailable again. Between the two days they were available, I was able to get 4 for my homeless guys. Whew!

  2. Thanks for posting. Got mine.

  3. Thank you for posting this was available again! I missed it the first time and this makes the perfect stocking stuffer gift for my dad and brother-in-law.

    Anybody know if you can do the auto-send, get the free razors, then cancel, or are you locked into a first month of a subscription?

    • You can subscribe to the 8 blade subscription for $15.99 but once you enter the promo code they will discount around $8 which is for the 4 free blades. You can cancel the subscription at any time.

      • What promo code?

        • The promo code everyone was mailed when they purchased the target trial box.

    • I subscribed (shipment every 5 months…which I believe will be 8 refill blades at a 5% discount and free shipping). It said you could cancel anytime, and I may cancel after I receive my 4 free refill blades depending on how my son likes these.

    • I ordered two boxes, subscribed for the blades with the code from one box, received the blades, cancelled my subscription, resubscribed for the blades this morning with the code from the second box, and will cancel once I receive them. My husband has been using Harry’s for about two years now. He put one of the handles with his travel stuff and the other is on standby (he can break anything). I’m really happy with this purchase. Less than $26 for two handles, 18 blades, and the shaving cream is a great value.

      • Thanks so much! This is extremely helpful and I agree, this makes it a great deal 🙂

  4. Grabbed 2 for the homeless about 9:30am mountain time. These are great for homeless men. I may try the razor myself!

  5. Or maybe they are charging $2 more because they are sending a PROMO CODE for 4 free blades when you sign up to a subscription in the target site. I guess you can always sign up and then cancel the subscription.

  6. Got this for my picky husband who shaves his head. He loves it and wants me to subscribe. I was pleasantly surprised.

    • (Fyi. From their site.)

      Can I use Harry’s to shave my head?

      Our razors are designed to shave your face, not your head. We’re working on developing products for head shaving but in the meantime, we recommend that you only use Harry’s blades for the purpose they were designed for: to shave your face. If you have any questions at all, please call or email, we’d love to discuss them with you.

    • My husband has a subscription and uses them to shave his head all the time. Never had a problem, and he loves them.

      • Oh ok great. Good for him. Not sure then why they don’t recommend it for the head.

        • Unless something is specifically designed for a certain things, they legally have to tell you that in case someone knicked their head and tried to sue. We live in a sue happy country.

      • Mine too. They work great.

  7. Did anyone reach out to Target about the fact that they had advertised this box as having 2 cartridges last time but it only contained 1?

    • Ha! thought so ?… $5 for 1 razor…better be a darn good razor(haven’t tried it yet)…. $5 for 2, I’ll take any day…. I’m on the fence, maybe I’ll return it….maybe not worth the trouble :/

    • I’m also interested in this. I bought four for stocking stuffers, and I’m a little peeved. Not only do they only contain one cartridge instead of two, the “4 free blades” card expires loong before Christmas. Which is fine, it’s not like they advertised a longer expiry date — I can just remove the card. But I am still annoyed about them advertising 2 cartridges and delivering only 1.

    • I got this the first time around and it DID come with 2 cartridges…one on the (boxed) razor handle and one tucked into the bigger box. Maybe you somehow got a dud before? I’d definitely reach out to them in that case!

      I just ordered 2 more sets as gifts because that razor gave me the best shaved legs of my whole life! (Even though it’s apparently designed for guys, I only ever use men’s shave products.)

  8. Thank you! I was able to get one.

  9. I got this the first time around and my husband loves it. He prefers his “art of shaving” shaving cream over this one but says the razor is amazing (compared to his Schick 5 blade). I don’t remember if you mentioned that it also comes with a coupon for a free 4 pack of razors if you subscribe to the auto send subscription with
