[Costco] Sonicare Protective Clean Platinum Toothbrush (2-pack) - $134.99

Costco has the Sonicare 2-pack toothbrush handles on sale for $134.99 in-store or $139.99 online (latter price includes shipping). Been waiting for this to go on sale as one of ours looks like it's on its last legs.

Sigh... I hate giving them money knowing it will break in 2 years but it's a good brush when it works and this is a pretty good price.
I'll bite.

I agree - count on 2 years however my credit card gives me an extra year of coverage, so I use that to cover my replacement purchase ;)

2 years isn't that bad when you consider the use/abuse this thing will take over that time period (perhaps used by multiple people, multiple times per day).

Have anyone tried doing the credit card replacement thing ? I’m always been skeptical of that for anything.

Mines broke at around 1.5y. Called them and was sent a replacement.

What is the point of handle 2-pack if the handles are designed to have replaceable personalised brush heads?

Hmm... I don't know, maybe for a second person in the household?

Or you use both at the same time for double the effectiveness

I personally use 1 for upper and 1 for lower.

I've used it for large and smaller purchases but usually for things valued at over $100.
As you can expect, it is a small hassle doing the correspondence, filling in forms, mailing in the original receipt, card statement, original warranty documents, waiting weeks for payment, etc.
But it's better than losing $100 for a toothbrush or $2500 for a TV.

We share one handle and switch the heads for each use.

Then when the handle is done, there is a brand new one waiting. This way we can extend the life expectancy, has worked great for years.

Whenever I remember. But yes, I agree with @Neo_ZX comments. Usually items >$100 and you have to be careful to supply the exact paperwork requested. It doesn't take long. I've used it for iPhones, Sonicare, etc. Nothing major yet... though they did tell me on my last call that there is a $60K lifetime limit.

Which credit card do you have?
They last time I tried to make a claim they only worked on the basis of refunding repair costs. If the manufacturer of the product only issues a replacement then I was ineligible for the claim. You can imagine this warranty only works for a limited ranger of products.
