Been looking at these for the past few days. Anyone knows how long Philips generally keep their discounts for - this one has been discounted by 33% already but how long till it runs out. Also, how often do they release discount codes? Wouldn't mind some more discount if they can be stacked.

not sure if it does.... "Please note that the use of a Philips UK promotional/voucher code not posted and approved by Top CashBack, may affect your eligibility for cashback."

would be great if it did as I'm thinking about getting one to replace the head-on 3D one from 2 years ago, as the heads on their pwn are pretty steep.

Still issues with processing payments. Anyone managed to pay for anything on the site in the past few days?

Interesting deal. I'm in the market for a new Philips shaver but I don't know if paying the extra for a 3D model is worth it. I know what the difference is but I'm undecided.

I've also been looking at the Philips SensoTouch 2D RQ1160/17 Boots have on offer for £75. There's been better deals on 2D shavers in recent months but unfortunately I missed those.

Would like to buy an electric shaver but never found one that can beat a wet shave with a gillette blade or similar

been using the 3d model before this one that is basically the same but this one has chrome trim and beard trimmer. I really like it as you can use it with gel/foam/wet so it actually produces pretty decent results. Don't know if it will ever be as close as true blade but I find it less hassle and more convenient.

I just got this deal so thanks OP, not trouble processing payment

+1 on all ur points. My exact thoughts and situation at the moment. Am confused about the different model numbers though, I take it a 2D RQ1160 is a better model than an RQ1145?

I think that's the way it works. From the research I did on the 3Ds at the weekend it seemed that the higher the model number the better and more expensive it was. But the differences were minor and the shaving head seemed to be the same. The 2D models probably work the same, so it's best to decide whether you want a 2D or 3D and then if you care about extra features. I did find a chart that compared all the 3D models but I can't remember where and can't find it again.

For me it's a case of whether I can justify spending over a hundred quid on a shaver. I'm also concerned about how long they last because my AT892 only lasted 9 months. Probably just a one off as Philips are one of the best brands on the market in this game but it's still on my mind. Normally my limit is £40 for a shaver so if I spend this much I'm going to want at least 5 years out of it. I fear this deal will be gone by the time I decide.

I like the way you're thinking. It's my first time at electric shavers. Tried the AT890 and I can see how a 3D might help, I hope am not wrong coz spending £100 on a shaver is not how I would usually do things. I have been trying to order from Philips before the deal ends, but having payment problems. I can always send it back for free without opening.

The RQ1145 can be bought for £65 from Philips, after discount, the RQ1160 for £75 from Boots, the RQ1180 for £100 from Sainsburys and the 3D RQ1275 for £108 - and the AT890 cost me £40. The problem is, does a 2D justify an extra £25/£35 or would an extra £68 on a 3D be worth it, afterall I will be using it for another 4-5 years atleast. I don't see the point of the cleaning kit though so am not even considering paying extra for one that includes it.

Is the comparison chart this one:

I guess I could buy it too and not open it just in case a better deal comes along or I changed my mind. But the latter would be unlikely after receiving it. I look at the hair straighteners I paid £95 for a few years ago and wonder if this would be any different to that purchase, the answer is no. But do I need 3D? The answer to that is probably no too. I've always owned "1D" shavers and they've done the job fine. But if you've never experienced better you don't know what you're missing.

The comparison chart I found was like this one, but I'm sure it was just for the SensoTouch 3D range rather than all of their ranges.

I can't find it anywhere however. It was probably on Amazon somewhere too.

Why is that? Philips seem reputable enough to shop using a debit card.

True, but I feel much safer with a credit card. Just recently I used my debit card with Interactive Investor, and despite requesting to close my account, they are still debiting my bank account.

Indeed, this kind of thing does seem to becoming more common. I need to start using my credit card for transactions. Just seems like more of a pain to have to manage two different accounts for purchases rather than one.

worked fine with visa credit.
Used TCB 15.15% and 40% - dclm3f36a5

Paid at website 100 minus 15.15 TCB tracked!! wonderful price for a 3d one
