I'd bought this for £38 from Boots over weekend, then found it in Asda Warrington Westbrook for half the price today.

A "teen" electric toothbrush, eh? Someone in Oral-B's marketing/spin department must have got a nice bonus for coming up with that one.

But I suppose it makes sense: get them hooked as kids and build up brand loyalty before they're adults so that they can look forward to a whole lifetime of buying disposable, unrepairable, mass-produced plastic crap which breaks down after a few years.

Oh and these can't be recycled either, so they go straight to landfill. And they're full of non-replaceable lithium batteries too which is especially brilliant for the environment.
Bought one in my local ASDA on the reduce to clear section about 3 weeks ago for £19.99 but was yellow sticker-ed (store specific reduction)

You have a valid point but, like XR, we don't need sanctimonious zealotry. It's a bad approach to changing hearts and minds.

Lithium - really? Doubt it! Batteries are removable for recycling (but not replaceable).
Anyway, does your hating head have an alternative to suggest? I guess not since you haven't posted a single deal in over 6 years .

Yes, the main suggestion is that if you want an electric toothbrush get one which allows its batteries to be replaced.

Electric toothbrush bodies aren't recycleable anywhere that I know of. The battery is soldered in so it's too much hassle to get out.
Asda Cockhedge has a lot of the electric toothbrushes reduced too, ranging from the high end plug in ones to kiddies battery ones (they had Disney and Marvel ones if I remember rightly)

I got a Colgate 360 battery toothbrush there the other day less than half price at £6 - batteries can be replaced and it's a decent toothbrush (my electric one died)
