Saving Money on Your Next Vacuum Cleaner*

The humble vacuum cleaner is one of those household appliances which are only missed when they stop working. If your vacuum cleaner has stopped working recently, or has sucked up way too much pet fur over the years to work as well as it used to, then it’s time to think about buying a new one rather than getting it repaired, because believe it or not, even vacuum cleaners have evolved a great deal over the years. While it is recommended that you invest a bit and get a good model since it’s probably going to be a while before you buy your next cleaner, that doesn’t necessarily mean you cannot save money while buying the best vacuum cleaner for the price. 

Do Your Research 

We live in the age of internet, so it only makes sense that you do your research before deciding on the model. You will quickly come across websites such as, where all the best vacuum cleaner models available in the UK are listed, along with the top products of the month. They score each model individually after putting them through a vacuum cleaner test and take reviews across the internet into consideration. This should give you an idea of what to expect from which model and what would be the best product for the budget you have. Don’t be shy to extend your budget a little if you think that the product is worth it. 


Once you have gone through the available models and have decided on one, it’s time to cross check and compare the price across all the major online platforms. While they are priced similarly in most listings, you will find exceptions, and there’s always a chance of getting the vacuum cleaner at a discounted price due to an ongoing sale on one of the sites. Don’t forget to check and compare the prices offered by the relatively smaller eCommerce sites as well. Although brick and mortar stores usually find it hard to match online prices, there’s no harm in checking with a few local stores as well. At the very least, you will be able to perform a little vacuum cleaner test of your own during the demo. 

Consider Refurbished Products 

The refurbished vacuum cleaner strikes the perfect balance in price and quality between second-hand/used vacuum cleaners and brand-new products. They are used products that have been renewed and serviced to perform almost as well as new products, if not just as well. When you purchase refurbished vacuum cleaners from a reputed and authorised dealer, you will likely get warranty on that purchase too; all of this at a significantly discounted price of the brand-new model. 

Invest in a Good Product 

The final tip to save money may seem somewhat counterintuitive, but it’s actually not. While trying to save money on a vacuum cleaner, your target should not be to try and buy the cheapest product available, but to get the best possible deal on the product which would be the best fit for your home and budget. In the long run, those few extra pounds won’t matter if you get a consistent and long-running performance out of the vacuum cleaner.
