Whenever I go to the dentist, they try to sell me a fancy Sonicare toothbrush. At a discount, you understand. (And I am to be congratulated for never once saying, “That word, I do not think it means what you think it means.”) I actually already have a sonic toothbrush, but I’ve had it for years and it’s nearing the end of its lifespan, so I’ve been looking around for a replacement.
I came across these Sonicare E-Series Replacement Brushes because they’re a hot item on Amazon today; at $16 shipped (via Subscribe & Save) for the pair, that’s about as cheap as you’re going to find Sonicare heads. But how much would the actual unit cost? It turns out that the Sonicare Essence is the $50 no-frills Sonicare model, delivering all of the stuff my dentist is always going on and on about, but in a slightly less futuristic-looking package (and for a lot less money).
Hmmmm. I’m thinking that qualifies as a “discount” a lot more readily than what they keep offering me at the dentist’s office. Just sayin’.
