Our favorite Dyson vacuum is STILL the lowest price it's been all year after Prime Day

Everybody loves a Dyson, but nobody loves the cost. This year's Prime Day deal has slashed $240 off the Outsize, making it the lowest price it's been all year, and it's still discounted.

Dyson's strapline is 'only a Dyson works like a Dyson'. It might be a marketing slogan, but it's true. After testing these for years, we know first-hand that they're powerful, agile, and ergonomic. We always have them at the top of our vacuum buying guides. However, it is also true that only a Dyson is priced like a Dyson. These top-of-the-market price tags are enough to turn buyers to similar, but cheaper alternatives like the Shark Vertex Pro.

However, don't rush over to Shark, Amazon's slashed the price of the Dyson Outsize in the final hours of Prime Day. However, the deal is still live, so it's $649.99, rather than $799.99. That's still a great reduction. In fact, it's the cheapest the Outsize has been all year.

If you're after a vacuum in the Prime Day sales, this is the best one you'll buy. Cordless, capable, and designed for deep cleaning, it's a premium product, just without the large price tag. Remember, Prime Day finishes tonight, so don't hang around.

There are still some Prime Day deals going on, so for one of the best Dysons without the premium pricetag, look no further. This is the lowest price we've seen for the Outsize, so it's not a deal you'll want to miss. 

Our team of experts have tested the Outsize. One of our expert testers used it in her home, where she put it through its paces, vacuuming sugar, flour, and cereal. When she used it on a dog bed, it literally changed color, redefining the phrase 'as good as new'. We wanted to find some weaknesses, so we could justify buying a cheaper alternative, but all we could critique was the price.

The suction power was incredible. As a cordless vacuum, it's nimble, easy to use, and it holds its charge really well. It comes with two batteries, which contain 60 minutes of charge each. The half-gallon dust bin and wide floor head mean that you can clean for a long time. We reckon your house will be sparkling before the Outsize gets tired.

The Outsize is well-suited to big houses, houses with pets, and those with different surfaces. It's relatively quiet (82 dBA) and the screen will give you a run time, so you'll know how long you have left to vacuum, depending on which mode you're using (eco, auto, or boost). The range of tools, from a light pipe crevice tool to low reach adapter are all really useful for reaching the dirt and dander that the average vacuum would miss.

If you'd like to know more, our expert Jaclyn has written a full review for the Dyson Outsize, detailing her experience. Also, if the outstanding Outsize savings haven't turned your head, here are a few other excellent vacuums that are reduced for Prime Day. Our experts have tested them all too, so you know they're excellent and practical, as well as a Prime Day steal.

What are the alternatives?

There are few other options if you still aren't feeling the Outsize. The cheapest post-Prime Day is the Shark Vertex Pro, but it's no longer on sale. Other top choices like the Samsung Bespoke Jet and iRobot Roomba j7+ are currently exactly the same price as the Outsize, so they can be compared exactly. 


When does Amazon Prime Day end?

Prime Day is all over at 11.59pm PCT July 12. Amazon will still have some savings on other products, but most of the best, unmissable deals will be gone.
