Philips Sonicare 28 Day Money Back Guarantee

Philips Sonicare 28 Day Money Back Guarantee 1

If you have not used an electric toothbrush before, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you.

We try to make things a little bit easier for you by giving our own recommendations, but even then, how can you be sure it is the one for you?  It is not like you have the option to try before you buy, do you?!

Rarely is this chance offered to us, but thankfully, the leading brands have come up with a solution which essentially is the next best thing and gives you a little peace of mind should you have made the wrong purchasing decision.

It is called a money back guarantee.

What this does is give you the opportunity to use the electric toothbrush for a period of time, with the option of returning it and getting your money back if it is not right for you.

Oral-B and Colgate both have their own guarantee programmes.  In this article I explain Sonicare’s.

100% satisfaction or your money back

Sonicare wish for you to be satisfied with their products and as such offer a 28 day money back guarantee.

This means you can buy an electric toothbrush, take it home and use it, knowing that if you don’t like it or are not sold on the product after a couple of weeks testing you can return it and get the price you paid returned to you.

I think this is a fantastic option and give credit to Sonicare for offering it.

Rarely have I heard of anyone not getting on with a new electric toothbrush, of course some don’t, but providing a little research is done before hand, most of the time you know before trying it that it should be right for you.

Philips Sonicare 28 Day Money Back Guarantee 2

The full claims process and associated conditions are explained below, but I feel it necessary to highlight a few very important pieces of information.

  • You actually get less than 28 days to test the product
    • The unwanted product must be physically with Sonicare’s return centre within 28 days, so you need to allow time for posting the product back.  In reality you probably have 21 days (3 weeks) to test the product.
  • The 28 days runs from date of purchase
    • This means if you buy a Sonicare toothbrush on the 1st of the month, it has to be returned to them by the 28th of the month.
  • This does not apply to faulty products
    • If the product is faulty, broken or has been damaged, you will need to speak to the retailer from which you bought it or make use of the Sonicare warranty programme.
  • You must complete the money back form
  • You must induce the original receipt
    • Photocopies are not acceptable.
  • The original packaging must be returned
  • You will receive the money back in the form of a cheque

It is nice to see that there is a freepost address, saving you the cost of posting it.

All details are subject to change so please refer to Sonicares money back guarantee page for the latest information.

If you do decide to claim, please let us (in addition to Sonicare) know why, so we can learn the likes and dislikes of people like yourself and to educate us, so that better recommendations can be made.

FAQ

How long can I test the brush for?

The product must be returned within 28 days, so in reality you have about 21 days (3 weeks) from date of purchase, allowing a week to return the product to Philips.

What do I need to return?

You need to return the product you bought.  To qualify, this must be an oral healtcare product with a model number starting HX.  Although not explicitly stated in the terms and conditions, the claim form does suggest that you need to return it in the original box/packaging to qualify, so do not throw any packaging away.  You must include the original receipt you got when the product was purchased, along with the completed claims form.
