    Saw electric toothbrush heads today at 4 for £1.99, the packet says that they are compatible with most Oral-B brushes.

    Does anyone know if they really are as that is a big saving on the real ones.

    Probably true if it says so. There’s a huge profit on these things and they cost very little to manufacture.

    The quality is another matter altogether though, but there’s little to lose at that price.

    We get ours on Amazon, where you can at least check the reviews.

    I got mine from Sainsbury's as they were selling them off for 50p. OK so they have Spiderman and My Little Pony on them but there's no one in the bathroom to laugh.

    They had some short dated (31st October) curry sauce jars (350g) for 39p yesterday. Choice of balti, jalfrezi or madras. The other flavours weren't short dated and were the full price (89p).

    Haven't tried them yet, so can't comment whether they're any good.

    39p is about what they are worth,check any items that are reduced actually go through the till reduced I’ve lost count of the times I’ve been caught last time was Saturday my 30p bag of very short dated liquorice allsorts went through at 89p and were like chewing wood.

    Another thing with Poundstretcher why does the person on the till without fail say do you want your receipt ? Feel like saying of course I ********* do.

    That's not just Poundstretcher, it's commonplace. I assumed it's because so many people take them and then just throw as litter. In some places if you say no they don't print them so saving some paper.

    You may find that cheap ones are not good for teeth and gums as they can be very stiff and scratchy. Next time you go to the dentist/hygienist take one with you and ask their opinion.
