Ewwwww......eww.......yuck.
I was just at Amazon looking at Sonicare Toothbrushes and saw that they have replacement brushes:

Buy new: $19.88 Used & new from $15.85

I think I'll fork out the extra 4 bucks for an unused replacement brush, thank you.

:shrug:

Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 07:58 PM by petersgirl
Are these the same kinds of people who have old cardboard boxes full of used bras and underwear sitting out at their garage sales?


edited egregious grammatical error.

6. Hint: When you're at Amazon, "used and new" means simply that Amazon
is acting as the agent, not the seller. The toothbrush won't be used, it will simply be offered for sale by someone other than Amazon.com using Amazon as the sales agent.

Make sense? :)

7. well there goes that idea...
I was kinda hoping on cornering the used toothbrush market and making a killing selling them for pennies on the dollar...
Oh well, I guess there's always ebay... :)
