I ordered and received 4 months of Soylent (shipped to Washington), resident of Canada.
I am quite disappointed at the lack of a multi-month discount. There are economies of scale to shipping 1 shipment of say 160 pounds versus 4 monthly shipments of 40 pounds.
I also don’t like the idea of subscribing monthly, people go on vacation, people have a bad week, anything can happen.
I think the same level of discount should be provided to bulk orders. I want to re-order, but $1,200 for 4 months versus $1,020 for the equivalent on a subscription basis is a pretty big ask, isn’t it?
I foresee myself consuming about 3 weeks of Soylent per month, but I would much rather be in control of how much Soylent I have and how often I use it. I personally don’t think the subscription model is optimal for Soylent. Sure it makes your job tougher from a forecasting and logistics perspective, but I think it’ll increase sales.
