1. Be aware that S2 uses a NiMH battery while S3 uses Li-Ion. The main issue with NiMH is that it's old technology that doesn't last as long, either per charge or total life, compared to Li-Ion. That doesn't make this a bad deal but it's something to consider, especially considering that WalMart was selling S3 for $25/each just a few days ago. With Christmas coming there are likely to be similar or even better deals coming RSN.

2. You can get a $20 off coupon at WalMart on p90 of their LiveBetter magazine. You may also be able to get a similar coupon on shelves at SDM. Unfortunately AFAIK Costco doesn't accept manufacturers' coupons as policy.

See [Walmart] Hot! Philips Series 3 Toothbrush $24.96 after $20 coupon about the expired deal and where to find coupons.

Just a heads up - I did some digging on these brushes, and the Kids model is basically the Diamond model motor in a simplified housing (which makes it better than most of the other models in between, and much more cost effective.) The kids model can be had on sale for $29-39 pretty regularly (I once got one for $12, MSRP is closer to $59), and depending on the retailer in Ontario, you can also save 8% of the HST because it's for kids.

Basically, if you're looking to try this out without spending $200+ on the highest end version, buy the kids brush. Sticker application is optional.

This is a good tip. My SoniCare battery died in less than 3 years a few days ago? Might pick up the kids version!

Just curious, how do you know it's the same motor as the Diamond?

Good find! Apart from the BT app, I doubt it's a Diamond Clean inside. But since it has a Li-Ion battery it's at least a S3. Good deal if you can find one on sale and apply a $20 coupon, etc.

Normally Costco sells heads for ~$50 for a 5-pack. But they're not currently showing on their website. If you can buy in the US, amazon.com sells genuine Philips heads for as little as US$6/head.

Found it online somewhere.

I didn't believe it.

Went to one of those display stations and tried them. It's pretty obvious. Almost all the low-mid range ones are really tame.

That's what I read - and by the feel, it felt roughly the same. I think the vibrations/min line up and it's built as sturdy. IIRC, DC just has less modes/bells & whistles.

I think the biggest difference is the brush heads - the Diamond Clean are more elaborate (but honestly, if you brush well regularly, I doubt it's going to make enough of a difference to be worthwhile). If you want, you can buy/attach the DC brushes.

More importantly, it's better than most of the mid-range adult brushes, and less than half the cost.

My s2 last for months without charging so I think the battery is pretty good as is. If it's lithium ion it's even better. I only charge it when the light flash.

Best Buy had Philips Sonicare Series 2 on sale for $39.99 during Black Friday...
No membership required, 3% cash back from Ebates, seems better deal IMO.

[Walmart] Philips Series 2 & 3 Toothbrush $24.96 after $20 coupon is the hottest deal if you can find stock in-store...

Months? How often do you use it?

Sonicares generally last 10 days to 3 weeks on a single charge when used by one person twice a day.

That's what I do as well. I've never gotten even 1 month from a single charge.

How long between charge do you get? You must brush for a long time. I brush for 2 min max lol.
