I bought the Sonicare Diamondclean Smart 9903/41 from Shoppers with points!

Anyways I also got a coupon and was waiting for a sale on the heads, but the 9903/41 came with 3 brush heads so I expect it to last at least 1yr.

Lol Oral B and Phillips recommend to replace it every 3 months LOL.

Are these coupons available online? Couldn't find them at my local store
Have people been able to find these coupons easily? I'm afraid my store won't have them and it'll be a waste of a triP

Went to Walmart, no coupon, went to shoppers next door, found coupon thing but it was empty. Still bought the heads for 29.99 because it's on pat with costco, minus the tax

As for using genuine Philips brushes for more than the recommended 3 months, I "renew" mine by boiling them in water for 15 minutes. That not only kills germs but also straightens out the brush fibers. It also seems to make the brushes feel a bit stiffer, more like brand new ones. Even if these brushes aren't as good as new ones, they do a good job of keeping my teeth clean. In my experience it's far better to brush teeth with an electric handle using "old" brushes twice a day than manually with new brushes.
This. While I get not wanting to fall into the "razors and blades" trap, you really should be replacing or at least renewing your brush heads. They get old and worn, the bristles get bent, and they're covered in bacteria from your mouth. I didn't know about the boiling trick, but that's a good idea. You should notice a significant difference in the brush feel with a new brush vs one that's a year old!

I bought the knockoffs from Amazon and they seem to be working great.

There's a big difference between 3 months and a year. If after 3 months boiling the brush renews it enough to last another 3 months then you've halved the cost of heads. You can't do 50% off with sales and/or coupons.

In addition to maximizing the "razor and blades" model, I suspect Philips is being conservative with the 3 months rule. After all there's a wide variation on how hard people press the brush to their teeth. Presumably the harder you press the shorter the brush life. So if you use a gentle touch it should be possible to extend brush life. But always consider that Philips has a bias to encourage you to buy as many brushes as possible.

My advice is to discuss these sorts of issues with your dentist or hygienist. If your teeth and gums are generally healthy then it's probably OK to push the 3 months. If you have some issues, then maybe not. And in that case maybe you should use brushes that are designed to address the issues you have, e.g. plaque, gums, discoloration, etc.

I think that's just standard practice with toothbrushes. You are supposed to replace them every few months for hygiene reasons.
You know what I do, I run my toothbrushes through the dishwasher.
I know I'm breaking the rules, whatcha gonna do... :)

Actually my Philips charger has a UV sanitizer, presumably that helps "sanitize" ... ?
(I'm refraining to say anything definitively because RFD members will jump on my throat).

Hey I got the Ali Express deal, as a new customer I also got a $4 coupon:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4Pcs-lo ... 94605.html

I ordered 5 lots of 4 heads for $2.20 Cdn apiece, total cost $11 Cdn less $5.20 coupon ($4 USD?) comes to $5.80 Cdn cost.
Free delivery, see you come Feb 24 - maybe :)
