In October 2008, fiz to Article on first purchase from Cartridges Mach 3 Gillette Revolucionario with triple lâmina (Pack of 4) (Gillette Mach3 Revolutionary Triple-Blade (4-Pack)) purchased at DealExtreme. The price of the most attractive DealExtreme regarding the online stores was the main attraction. With blade in hand I could see that it was original and excellent product quality.
Now, almost 2 years after, I decided to ask a few more slides. The packaging comes in packs of four for the price of U.S. $ 8,80, com frete included, equivalent to approximately U.S. $ 15,13. But, and the other time I took to buy soon 3 packaging, totaling 12 Blades, and enjoy the price of bulkrate, U.S. $ 7,68 by embalagem (R$ 13,20). So that 3 packaging plus the cost of bulkrate-record U.S. $ 1,70 totalizou USD 24,74 (R$ 42,55), or about U.S. $ 3,55 by lamina, a good price compared to what normally takes place in Brazil.
The packaging has changed since the last purchase, the former was Cartridges Mach 3 by Gillette manufactured in China, text in Chinese and English because they were also intended for the Singapore market. But the Cartridges Mach 3 the current purchase has only text in Chinese, probably intended only for the domestic market. Fortunately the inner packaging and the cartridges are equal, presenting the same characteristics of the other genuinidade purchase. I will not repeat here all these features because they can be duly noted in previous article.
The purchase was made in 13/06/2010, posted at 16/06. Sent to Brazil by Hong Kong Post for 20/06. Recorded as received in Brazil 15/07, then followed the Central Agency of the City of São Paulo to St. Joseph of the Pines. I do not know what this package was to do in Sao Paulo, but anyway, to see Pinhais there was already thinking that would have taxed the first packet in the year 2010, because all the others did not appear “Pinhais” screening, and the packages that were taxed in the year 2009 were precisely those that appeared “Pinhais” screening. But to my surprise, when my girlfriend went to the distribution center on 24/07 to get my ModNation Racers PS3 do (I talked about this other article), which had been made 3 Delivery attempts, Post said the attendant: “Look, Here is another package for it too, going out for delivery on Monday, but you can already take”. And there was no tribute, although it appeared to “Pinhais” no rastreamento. Another thing that was weird is that the screening because she pulled out directly in CDD even before the first delivery attempt, appeared as the packet forwarded to the Central Agency and taken there, but in practice he never went there, much less was taken there the day 24/07, it was a Saturday and the agency or opens Saturday, only opens the CDD.

The package DealExtreme came with description “HEALTH / BEAUTY” and declared value of HKD $62,70, equivalent to approximately U.S. $ 13,80. There is no stamp of Revenue. Total time in transit 40 calendar days, was not the packets faster, but it was not the most time-consuming. The scheme is buying Cartridges Mach 3 before the previous shipment end, as I did, to avoid being with the face of Castaway or having to buy more expensive Gillette in the local market.
