My son has braces. I’ve mentioned this two or three (hundred) times before, yes? The last time we took him to the orthodontist, he was given a Fair/Poor grade on his brushing. And I was mortified. Look, it’s hard to brush well around braces, and harder still if you’re only nine and easily distracted by shiny things. But the orthodontist’s suggestion that I buy him a $200 sonic toothbrush fell on deaf (frugal) ears.
Today’s Woot of the Day is a two-pack of Oral-B Vitality Sonic Rechargeable Toothbrushes and replacement heads for $24.99. Shipping is $5, so you’re getting 2 brushes and 4 extra heads for $30 shipped.
Let’s compare: Over at Amazon, one brush alone will cost you $17. Then a pack of three replacement heads is another $17. Two brushes and three heads—one head less than you get from Woot—will therefore cost you $51 shipped.
I bought the Woot pack. At this price, both kids can have one, and I can tell the orthodontist what I think of their $200 suggestion.
