Black Friday vacuum deals — what to expect in 2021

Last year saw plenty of deals floating around. Target had some of the best deals including the Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum down from $499 to $299, and the Dyson V8 Motorhead Origin Cordless Stick Vacuum from $380 to $230. 

Amazon also had a range of deals such as the Anker Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 30C Robot Vacuum Cleaner from $300 to $180, and BISSELL 2999 MultiClean Allergen Pet Upright Vacuum with HEPA Seal System on sale from $180 to $140.

We can expect similar deals this year, particularly from popular brands such as Dyson, Bissell, and Shark to name a few. It’s worth looking out for great robot vac deals too as they are becoming more in-demand this year.

What type of vacuum should I buy on Black Friday?

You're ideal type of vacuum cleaner will depend on your needs. Upright vacuum cleaners are usually more powerful than cordless, but they're not as lightweight or maneuverable. With cordless, you don't have to worry about a cord holding you back, but battery power is then a factor and you will need to keep it charged. Because of its smaller build, cordless vacuum cleaners will need their dust bins emptying more often too. 

You could opt for a robot vacuum and save yourself from the chore, but then these don't tend to be as powerful as handheld vacuums. They are very convenient though and if you splurge and get yourself a self-emptying model, you will only need to empty the dust bin every 1-2 months.
