Le Parcel Introduces Tampon Delivery

Would you pay $15 a month to get tampons delivered to your door? Le Parcel is hoping the answer is yes!

Le Parcel tampons

It happens every month: Our "friend" visits — and we're fresh out of tampons.

So, we're left using the toilet paper trick (just use your imagination for that one) until we can get to the store for a box, or we make our boyfriends head to the store.

Le Parcel not for you? HelloFlo also has a tampon delivery service >>

Très annoying.

Not anymore, though. Le Parcel has set out to change all that by offering a monthly tampon-delivery service, à la monthly beauty services like Julep and Birchbox.

And we're not the only people excited about it.

"BEST IDEA EVERRRR!!!!" one happy customer wrote on Twitter.

"How do I sign up?! I need this for next month," wrote another.

Here's how it works:

  • You pick out up to 30 tampons and panty liners from brands like Kotex, Tampax and Playtex.
  • Pay $15 a month.
  • Get your tampons, plus a gift and chocolate, delivered right to your door.

We like the idea behind Le Parcel: You get all your monthly "accessories" without going to the store. Plus, who doesn't like free gifts and chocolate?

Still, we can't shake just how... unnecessary it is. A box of 36 tampons doesn't typically cost more than $10, so you're paying extra to get a "free" gift, some chocolate and shipping to your door.

Tell us: Will you subscribe to Le Parcel?

I thought this was a clever idea so I tried it out. HUGE disappointment! It was late every month! I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt, but after being 2 weeks late for the 3rd time I decided to discontinue. The lady I dealt with, Amanda, seems very professional and wanted to help. But the Lady who was in charge of shipping never responded to a single email. Perhaps they just need someone new to do their shipping because it is a great idea...

I'd seen this on another blog and actually had all of my information entered into their site but had withdrawals right before I hit "complete purchase". $15/month just seems like a lot when I have three drug stores within 10 blocks of my apartment.

I'm such a cheapskate so I would never do this. I can see doing it if I had a lot of kids and it was hard to leave the house, but even then I would only do it if all of my groceries could be delivered!
