Gillette Charging An Extra $5 For One Additional Razor Blade?

Reader Jordan says that Gillette is adding a razor blade to their 4-pack. And raising the price $5.

A couple of weeks ago, I was at Target, and I saw that all of their Mach 3 cartridges were on clearance. As a Mach 3 user, I was kind of concerned as to what was going on. I hoped that they weren’t discontinuing the Mach 3 and Mach 3 turbo and forcing everyone to buy their newest razor.

Last night I was at the grocery store and wandered down the shaving aisle, and lo and behold, Mach 3 razors now only come in a 5-pack. Not only that, the price has been jacked way up. A 4-pack of Mach 3 turbo blades was about $8.99. The new 5-pack costs $13.99. So they give you one extra razor for 5 bucks. Thanks, Gillette. I am now switching to Schick.

Ouch.
