Squeaky clean teeth

By Mir

I’ve had my ultrasonic toothbrush for about six years, now, and it’s finally starting to give up the ghost. So I’ve been poking around looking at getting a new one.

That’s how I happened to discover that right now, the Sonicare FlexCare with Sanitizer is down to just $130 shipped at Amazon. Still hardly chump change, but it’s a good $20 cheaper than I’ve seen it elsewhere.

There’s also a $15 rebate available, too, that would make it $115. If it lasts me another six years, that’s… less than $20/year. Hey, when I think about it like that, it seems a lot cheaper. Heh.


  1. our Bj’s has 2 packs of the Essence for $79. Which is about the same price as one at all the other stores (Kohl’s, target, etc.)

  2. I was at my dentist just today (great timing, Mir!) and she recommended sonic care over Oral B for two reasons: evidently sonic care has a 2 year warranty which she personally took advantage of and was impressed with the customer service and also because it brushes two teeth at once vs. one with the Oral B.

    So there you go. I think it is time to splurge on a $120 toothbrush.

  3. Oh good. Just read your tweet that you had actually written this some hours ago. I was concerned when I saw it that you had spent the entire day under your desk waiting for the magic chocolate. I’m – um – having some trouble with distribution on that particular product. Yeah, that’s it. Sorry!
