An Amazing Deal on Manpacks

Comments (14)

My latest foray into the Daily Deal universe is up – and it’s a 50% offer on Manpacks.

If you are a guy and aren’t familiar with Manpacks, it’s an easy way to get essentials (undies, socks, razors) mailed to you every few months. Why spend time shopping for undies and socks when you can climb mountains, slay dragons, and conquer the world?

If you area a girl and are tired of your guy wearing tired, worn out undies, a Manpack makes a perfect gift.

I continue to enjoy my alter ego Brad Salesy (kind of like Slim Shady) as I better try to understand how Daily Deals actually work.

    Hey Brad, we’re huge fans of Manpacks over at Earndit. They’re offering a $20 credit for 300 points. Considering you have over 1,400 points you can get it easily. :)

    As a side note, working with them has been a real pleasure. They have great customer service and a user-friendly purchasing process. Our members have been very happy with it.

      Neat – I’ll go get some more (I bought some on my deal also just to test it
      out).

    Great idea. I just checked out the products, though. No option for “Tall” sizes, and not enough options in briefs. My guys won’t change – well, they will change their briefs, just not the kind of briefs they like. I’ll check again in the future to see if the types of products have expanded.

      I found that trying new things with Manpacks has been great. Also, they have socks, shaving cream, etc. But what makes me really love this company is their execution. Business execution is hard and they make it look easy. I’m a big fan of Amazon and Zappos, but I think Manpacks is even better at customer service.

      I don’t have any connection to the company – I had found them mentioned in the comments on this blog last year. I think Brad was railing against all the SaaS acronyms and someone mentioned UaaS: underwear as a service. At first I thought it was a joke, but it’s been a great service.

    Recurring deliveries from Amazon.com is my own personal manpack — the additional discount for recurring revenues tied with Amazon Prime is king. I never think about soap, razors, etc. They all just show up.

    Huh? A twenty premium on razors over Target. Are you guys really that busy

    This isn’t so much about the product sold as it is having an influencer monetizing his or her sphere of influence. This is what i have in mind for searchface.me.
