If you’re seeking the motivation to clean, there’s no better place to start than with the best vacuum deals. These discounts open up the door to luxurious Dyson, Shark, and Samsung models, which are a dream to use, but often expensive at full price. If you can find them reduced, well, that's a dream come true.

At H&G, we take our vacuuming seriously, always on the lookout for the best vacuums on the market. We have a team of dedicated experts who spend their days looking for the next greatest vacuum for pet hair or the best alternative vacuums to Dyson. Whilst we can get excited about suction power and PID sensors, we see a lot of value in a simple model, cordless or upright, which covers the fundamentals exceptionally well.

All year round, we keep an eye on the vacuum sales on offer. We love a deep Dyson discount, especially on their new submarine wet vacuum. Equally, if we can save on a similarly good Shark vacuum, we know we can clean happily – as long as we are getting value for money, or better. 

The problem is, with near-constant discounts on white-label vacuums, it’s hard to tell what’s a good deal and which ones are promising the world, but struggling to suck up cereal. That’s where we come in. We’ve curated the only vacuum deals you need to shop. They’re tested by our experts and they’re all available for a significant saving, right now.

If you want to take a look for yourself, these are the places where we've found the best deals. Walmart has the best prices I've seen of any major retailer, but there are still some options at other stores.

Best cordless vacuum deals

Cordless vacuums are increasingly becoming the standard in most homes. They offer the suction power of some of the best upright vacuums, with the flexibility of cordless convenience. Here are some of our favorites, which just happen to be on offer too.

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 in Memorial Day sales? 

Last year we saw almost all of the best vacuums on the market reduced for Memorial Day, across Walmart, Target, QVC, and more. The best savings were on slightly older models, such as Dyson’s V8 at QVC. This was reduced by nearly $120 and it comes with plenty of luxury Dyson features, just lacking their latest lazers and smart technology. For that kind of saving, it’s a compromise worth diving into. 

Why are Dyson so expensive?

Dyson 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.

Vacuum deals are helpful, but they're not the only deals around. Sometimes it's the small household items that make the most sense.
