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 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.

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.

I think you should have escalated that case to a manager perhaps. I've used MC and AMEX.

My device was not repairable in the sense that the cost would definitely exceed the purchase price (and case processing effort).
As a side note eventual failure was a common issue for the product, but I doubt that played into their decision.

Another case I just accepted the repair cost as a cashout and upgraded the device to a more current model.
They just send you a cheque so it's really up to you.

People actually share the handle in a household and change the brush head multiple times per day?

I buy high-end products for quality and convenience, but that's just a hassle. The brush already increases the time spent in bathroom (to get a better clean) and switching heads every day is going to cause more wear.

Not my cup of tea, but to each their own.

For 2 brushes this is an amazing deal. But if anyone is looking for just 1 brush of the highest model I bought the DiamondClean at Shopper's. They sell black or white, it's regular $250 but frequently goes on sale for $199.99. If timed correctly you can stack on a redemption day, 130k pts for $175 or 140k pts for $200, or on 20x pts day. Total cost comes to $160+ tax or $146 + tax. Cheapest I've seen on Amazon is $180.

For the brush heads... once u buy it at shoppers you'll get a personalized offer for 2k pts on every $10 spent on Philip's sonicare brush or accessories. The brush heads are $46 regular (rip off), but go on sale for $35, stack with 20x pts, stack with 2k for $10 = each brush head about $10. Comparable to Costco's 5 brush heads for $55, but you 1) could buy 2, 4, 6+ quantity 2) can buy any of the 3 types of brush 3) can buy in black

DiamondClean comes with travel case, 3 brush heads (consider this in the cost), uses an app to track cleaning, and warranty is 2.5 yrs if you register online. Battery lasts me 2 weeks.

If u somehow get the personalized offer you can buy the DiamondClean for $111.50 on a 20x pts day.

Getting tired of waiting for the brush heads to go on sale at Costco... can anyone recommend some *good* replacement off brand heads? (And not from any sites that will take weeks shipping from China)
