As essential as they are, the best vacuum cleaners are unfortunately not as cheap as we'd like them to be. Sure, there are plenty of available options under $150 or so, but they never tend to do a good job of actually cleaning.

To own a vacuum cleaner that'll effectively tackle your floors, you'll need to be willing to part with a bit of cash (the best ones can cost upwards of $600!). But, luckily, throughout the year are various sale events that'll see even top-of-the-line models discounted by hundreds. If you time it right and understand how to look for a genuine good deal, you could grab a powerful vacuum cleaner for a fraction of the retail price.

As H&G's home tech editor (and a self-professed clean freak), I take vacuuming seriously. Myself and a team of dedicated experts test and review the best vacuums on the market. So, we know what makes the best cordless vacuums the best, or how to spot the best vacuum for pet hair, and we definitely know how to separate a good deal from exaggerated marketing promises.

I've compiled a big list of all the sales and deals you can currently browse, to see what vacuums are on offer right now for you to bring home.

Top picks

After searching through them all, these are the best vacuum deals currently live across all the sales. I've selected deals that offer both good value for money and a good product - everything listed here, I'd use myself.

Dyson V12 Detect Slim | was $649.99, now $499.99 at Dyson (save $150)

Dyson V12 Detect Slim | was $649.99, now $499.99 at Dyson (save $150)

The little sister version to our top-rated vacuum, the Dyson V15 Detect, features the same laser technology we love, with a slightly smaller dust bin and easier power operation (a single button rather than a trigger).

In my recent Dyson V12 Detect Slim review, I learned that it's just as impressively capable of cleaning up debris and dust (and hair!) of all sizes.

Shark Cordless Detect Pro Auto-Empty System | was $449.99, now $379.99 at Shark (save $70)

Shark Cordless Detect Pro Auto-Empty System | was $449.99, now $379.99 at Shark (save $70)

Shark's latest cordless vacuum cleaner has particle detection, where it will adjust its suction power based on the dust volume of the floor. It's a handy way to save power when you don't need it, and to make sure the dirtiest parts of your floor are getting the thorough clean they need. 

Shark Matrix Plus 2-in-1 Self-Empty Robot Vacuum and Mop was $699.90

Shark Matrix Plus 2-in-1 Self-Empty Robot Vacuum and Mop | was $699.90, now $499.60 at Shark (save $200)

If you’re looking for a high-tech robot vacuum that is surprisingly self-sufficient, the Shark Matrix Plus is definitely a worthwhile option. We love that this vacuum can empty its own dustbin and rarely gets stuck on obstacles.

Shark Wandvac System | was $199.99, now $179.99 at Shark (save $20)

Shark Wandvac System | was $199.99, now $179.99 at Shark (save $20)

We've reviewed the Shark Wandvac System, and were impressed by how easy it is to use. It's perfect for those quick clean-ups and light housekeeping, and the lightweight cordless vacuum has three cleaning positions.

Also available in other colors at Shark.

Best cordless vacuum deals

They're increasingly becoming the standard in most homes, and for good reason. The best cordless vacuums offer the suction power and cleaning capabilities of even some top-end upright vacs, with the flexibility of cordless convenience. Here are some of our favorites, which just happen to be on offer too.

If you have pets or enjoy a more traditional vacuum, one of the best upright vacuums might be for you. They're powerful and reliable, and all of the models below have been tested and approved by our experts. One of them was even recommended to us by a professional carpet cleaner (the SEBO, available at Walmart).

The best robot vacuums do a lot of the home cleaning for you, saving time and effort thanks to frequent runs of your floors. They're relatively new inventions so they're not always the cheapest, but if you find the right deal you can get some premium home tech for a decent price.

Vacuum FAQs

When is a good time to find a vacuum deal?

Our experts reckon that there’s always a vacuum deal on offer. Vacuums are sold in so many places by so many people, you’ll be able to find at least one appealing model on offer, whether it’s recommended by us, or researched by you. The big sales events, such as Memorial Day, July 4th, Black Friday, and Prime Day are likely to offer you the most significant savings because this is when places such as Amazon can go crazy with savings. 

However, it’s worth keeping an eye on pages like this all year round. Specific retailers will have special sales events, such as Wayfair’s Wayday, and places such as Dyson release refurbished models pretty regularly. These are all savvy ways to pick up a good vacuum deal outside of the bigger events.

Will there be discounts on vacuums on Prime Day?

Yes, without a doubt. Every year, Prime Day gives us some of the biggest vacuum discounts we see all year, with only Black Friday offering anything similar. Amazon stocks a lot of the major brands (like Dyson, Shark, iRobot, Samsung - you name it), and each year some of the brands' best models get pretty sizeable reductions.

This year, we can expect to see Prime Day land in mid-July, as it does every year. 

Why are Dyson vacuums so expensive?

Dysons are so expensive because they're the best. They have laser and particle tech that other vacuums can't match, and they remove more dirt than any other vacuum. However, if you're on a budget you're better off with a cheaper model as these features, while helpful, aren't necessary.

Are cordless vacuums worth buying?

Yes, cordless vacuums are worth buying. They're much more comfortable and easier to use than corded vacuums, and these days they're almost as powerful. The only thing with cordless vacuums is remembering to keep them charged up.

If you're on the hunt for the best vacuum deals, it might be worth learning how shark vs dyson vacuums compare, to see which will be best for your home.

And if you're looking to make your cleaning a little easier, find out whether robot vacuums are really worth it, too.
