Deal expires 8/4/2019

It normally goes for 99.99 dollars on Costco, and a similar model is sold on amazon for 79.99 for a single unit.

This price is better than the previous deal costco had in Spring which was for $74.99

Oral-B has a rotating/oscillating action, while Sonicare is more of a pulsating action. I find it gentler on my teeth and gums but maybe that's just my preference. Sonicare definitely has better battery life - the 2 week claim is conservative, whereas Oral-B doesn't last that long. Oral-B also uses NiMH while Sonicare is lithium-ion, with way better longevity. We've had several Oral-B's that no longer held a charge after a year or two of use.
Older Oral-B models use NiMH. Newers are Li-ion.

Ordered this as a replacement for a 5 year old Sonicare easyclean for my older kid. This will be an upgrade as the easyclean was a 1 mode handle and this has 2. However, I am not sure how much the other mode will get used, if ever. The easyclean held up well but stopped vibrating and would only hum. Took it apart and found that the torsion bar had snapped just above where it attaches to the magnet. Could replace the drive shaft section for less than $20 but don't want to bother fixing a 5yo handle when the battery or something else could be next.

I have been using Oral B handles myself for over 15 years and have found them great. Currently have a 5000 series I think that came with a brushhead holder, travel case and timer clock. Sure the handle paces you through each quadrant, but I like having the timer around which shows the current time when not in use. And even though it has several modes I only use the regular clean one. But I think it was a SD at the time for $50-60 so I don't have a lot invested in the features.

Never had a problem with Oral B except for battery life. Mine have all had NiMH batteries so far. I don't think I ever got 2 weeks without charging when they were new. Maybe it lasted only 7-10 days when new but not a big deal as we don't travel much and the charging base is small to take with you. But after several years of use the battery in my current handle only lasts for 3-4 cycles (1.5-2 days) before needing a recharge. Not a big deal but for the next one I want to try a lithium battery.

I have found the oral B slightly less expensive to use than the sonicare. First the oral B handles seem to be less expensive at purchase - even the top end models with more features and accessories go for less than $100 at times on SD. And replacement brushes are slightly less at local wholesale club for OralB where they are about $5 a head. Not a big price difference overall if you prefer one brand over another.
