For a limited time, shoppers can snag the Dyson V8 Absolute for $299.99, which is down $150 from its retail price of $449.99. Dyson is one of the vacuum brands we trust most, and the V8 certainly lives up to our expectations in terms of quality and performance. Described as “one heck of a vacuum” by our testers, we were thrilled by the amount of included attachments it comes with (you’ll receive six with your purchase, including a crevice tool, a soft dusting brush and a powered brush head for hardwood floors) and its impressive general functionality.
At just 5.6 pounds, this cordless cleaner was incredibly gentle on floors. It picked up 88 percent of the dirt we laid out for it—an astounding performance, considering other models only achieved as much as 45 percent—while the brush head, which is made from carbon fiber and nylon, was pleasantly soft. In terms of battery life, it lasted a whopping 40 minutes on the lowest setting (though it only ran for seven minutes on the highest one). We also liked how easy it was to empty the dustbin: All you have to do is pull a lever at the top of the machine and it’ll automatically release the dirt inside.
In addition to this awesome price drop, Dyson will also gift you a free mattress tool, normally $29.99, to remove dirt and allergens from upholstered surfaces. Plus, you’ll nab free two-day shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not totally in love.
Even without all of those amazing perks, the Dyson V8 absolute is one of the best vacuums we’ve ever tested, and snagging it at a discount is a no-brainer.
