Cyber Monday deals are here, and that means some big discounts on – let's face it – the best vacuum brand in the world.
However, this year I've not been that impressed with the Dyson deals. Dysons are always expensive, and a lot of the deals were exactly the same as they were last year, so it wasn't a world-beating Black Friday.
If you want to take the plunge with Dyson this year, I think this is the only Cyber Monday deal worth considering. There are other options, but this is the best.
What's the deal?
Dyson V11 |
Was $569.99, now $349.99 at Walmart
The Dyson V11 is about as advanced as a Dyson you can buy before you're looking at their laser and particle-detecting models. It's powerful and excels on every floor type, and it has a great runtime. It's now it's at the best price I've ever seen it.
How does it compare?
But don't just take my word for it. I've been through a bunch of other Dyson deals to compare and contrast. You should also consider that Dyson aren't the only vacuums worth considering, and there's some great alternatives out there if you know where to look.
Dyson V8 |
Was $419.99, now $224.99 at Walmart
Dyson's oldest vacuum, the V8 still packs a punch. However, it has some pretty big drawbacks, The runtime is poor generally and very short on max: I've timed it maxing out at 6 minutes before. However, it still does a better job of picking up dirt than most vacuums out there. If you want a Dyson for the absolute lowest price, this is the one, but it's far from the greatest vacuum in the world.
Shark Vertex Cordless Vacuum |
Was $399, now $319 at Walmart
When it comes to Shark vs Dyson, my gut instinct for price is to always go with a Shark. Dyson are better, but when I tested the two side by side years ago I found this Vertex is only marginally worse. If you aren't obsessed with spotless floors, this is probably the deal you want.
Dyson V15 Detect |
Was $749.99, now $549.99 on Walmart
This is probably the best vacuum in the world. We were certain it would be a gimmick but on test we found that the laser genuinely reveals dirt the naked eye can't see. The particle sensor gives you real time feedback on the particles your vacuum is removing from the floor, too, which is almost laughably hi-tech. That's before you get to the power. This vacuum cleaned an old dog bed so well it restored its faded color from gray to blue. However, even with a $200 off it's still expensive.
Where are the best Dyson deals?
I've found that Walmart has the best Dyson deals. Dyson and Amazon are also running discounts, but Walmart's prices are lowest.
Why are Dyson so expensive?
Dyson are expensive because they're loaded with tech. It's not surprising that a vacuum with a built-in laser and particle detector fetches a $1000 price tag out of sales periods. However, I'd argue that a lot of this tech is a little superfluous. If you just want clean floors, you don't need all the extras.
