More and more Americans shop online. According to a study by Pew Research, 79 percent of U.S. consumers shop online, up from just 22 percent back in 2000.
Consumers now have many online shopping options, including product subscriptions, ranging from shaving supplies to feminine hygiene necessities. While millions have embraced the convenience of a recurring subscription, many are still wary.
Some consumers see subscription as an additional monthly bill that can be avoided. Others have had a horrific experience with dishonest online merchants who purposefully make it difficult to cancel a no- longer-wanted subscription.
Surely, in most cases, subscription offerings are not entirely unique and the same or comparable items can be purchased a la carte and on demand. In other cases, the items are more of a luxury kind and consumers see no justification for a recurring subscription.
However, sanitary pads or tampons is something that roughly a half of the world population needs at some point in their lives. It’s not a luxury item (although it’s unfortunate that women are still repeatedly forced to prove it to lawmakers – think tampon tax).
Our case for menstrual pad subscription service is based primarily on the fact that women who menstruate are going to buy their pads or tampons somewhere, be it a local grocery store, a gas station or a favorite online store. Genial Day subscription service is here to make sure you’re getting the best deal for the finest quality product. In other words, we’re out there to prove that subscribing to menstrual pads simply makes sense.
Convenience – higher quality product, delivered on auto-pilot
Not every woman in the United States lives near a grocery store or a health food store that stocks premium menstrual pad brands. By “premium” we mean brands that disclose the ingredients of their feminine hygiene products, follow best manufacturing practices and are certified by reputable third parties. They don’t use harmful chemicals in their pads and liners and they can prove it.
In addition, women who live in large cities and have access to better, bigger stores, tend to spend a lot of time commuting. As a result, it’s very likely they will run out of “the good” feminine hygiene products and will grab “the bad” ones at the nearest store.
Only products you need
Our subscription kits include sanitary napkins (aka menstrual pads) and liners. You can buy additional items, such as period underwear, a la carte on our website. While some other feminine hygiene product delivery services try to impress their customers with a large number of various items, we have decided to stick to the basics. This makes our kits more affordable and saves you from receiving items that you won’t use. It’s good for you and good for the planet!
4 - 6 months supply of premium & super absorbent pads and cotton liners
A poll of our free trial members revealed that one of the reasons why some women hesitate to try menstrual pad subscription is because they don’t want to deal with monthly delivery. Some have very busy schedules, others work odd ours and may not be at home when their package is delivered. Unfortunately, mail theft does happen and no one likes to be a victim. Our default delivery schedule is every 4 months, so you don’t have to worry about being home to accept the delivery every month. For most women, 9 boxes of supplies will last for 4-6months.
While we specialize in feminine hygiene basics, our service doesn’t lack flexibility. Based on your period flow, you can choose from Light, Combination or Heavy Kit. Alternatively, you can mix-and-match and build your own. Additionally, if you’re not satisfied with default delivery frequency, you can modify it by simply logging into your account and changing the settings. Need to cancel?

We are firm believers that “cheap” and “affordable” are not synonymous; our goal is to design and manufacture products that are affordable, but not cheap; luxurious as measured by their quality and durability, but not the price tag. So, yes, our pads are competitively priced, but not dirt cheap. After all, each pad is a microcosm engineered from ground-up and includes semi-precious gemstone tourmaline, organic cotton, food-grade adhesives and more. However, especially when you factor in subscription savings, most will agree that the price is fair. ground-up and includes semi-precious gemstone tourmaline, organic cotton, food-grade adhesives and more.

Let’s do some math, shall we?
How Does it Work?
Ordering the subscription is as easy as 1, 2, 3… well, and 4.
Step One: Choose Your Kit
A kit = 9 boxes of pads + liners. You can choose a pre-set kit for Light, Combination or Heavy Flow or you can build your own kit.
Light Flow Kit Includes:
- 4 boxes of regular flow pads (EACH box contains 10 pads – a total of 40 pads)
- 5 boxes of cotton liners (EACH box contains 24 liners – a total of 120 pantiliners)
Combination Flow Kit Includes:
- 3 boxes of regular flow pads (EACH box contains 10 pads – a total of 30 pads)
- 2 boxes of heavy flow pads (EACH box contains 8 pads – a total of 16 pads)
- 4 boxes of cotton liners (EACH box contains 24 liners – a total of 72 pantiliners)
Heavy Flow Kit Includes:
- 1 box of regular flow pads (a total of 10 pads)
- 4 b ox of heavy flow pads (EACH box contains 8 pads – a total of 32 pads)
- 4 box of cotton liners (EACH box contains 24 liners – a total of 96 pantiliners)
Step Two: Choose Your Delivery Frequency
If it’s your first time signing up, there will be only one choice – every 4 months. Once you complete your order, you will be able to modify your delivery frequency.
Step Three: Choose Your Reward
You have two options.
Option #1: Save $30 plus get a pair of free period panties every 4 months
Your total is going to be $53.91 + $6.00 shipping = $59.91
That’s approximately $6.66 per box of pads and liners (including delivery). So, 60 bucks. Not too bad considering you’re getting 9 boxes of pads + liners that will last you 4 months or longer! Plus, you’re getting a pair of free period panties (yes, you can choose the color and size)!
Option #2: Save 35% on your kit (this option doesn’t include free panties, but saves you more money)
If you choose this option, your total with 35% percent off is going to be $35.04 + $6.00 delivery = $41.04.
That’s approximately $4.66 per box of product (including delivery). Once again, considering that the supplies will last you 4 months, $40 per box is not bad, right?
Step Four: Review Your Order and Make a Purchase
You will receive your first kit within a week after your payment has posted. After that, you will be billed every 4 months, unless you modify your kit frequency.
