Philips Sonicare 90 day money back guarantee

Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4300

In an effort to give you more peace of mind when buying a Sonicare electric toothbrush, Philips runs a money back guarantee programme.

This programme allows you to buy, try and return a Sonicare toothbrush, for any reason, if you are not satisfied.

You can use the brush for up to 90 days and if you are not happy it can be returned for a refund.

Despite this, you should strive to only return the brush if you really need to. Electric toothbrushes have a significant impact on the environment.

If you return a brush it further increases the product's environmental impact. If you really don't get on with the brush then it makes sense to return it, but it is not a decision that should be taken lightly.

The 90 day money back guarantee, or MBG as it is otherwise known, is promoted on Sonicare's website as well as online amongst other retailers.

However the information explaining the conditions is often quite limited. In this post I explain all you need to know.
