Vacuums have come a long way from the cumbersome corded models of decades past, but they’re not exactly…cheap. Thankfully, we’ve spotted lots of early Black Friday vacuum deals on all sorts of models—from upright to robotic to hardwood-specific to pet-friendly—many of which we’ve written about before. We know, we know, Black Friday isn’t for another few weeks. But every year, the deals ramp up earlier so you can get your holiday shopping in before crunch time. That means more time for retailers to ship and less stress on you, so you can spend your precious hours on something that isn’t paging through Black Friday coupons.
Whether you’re looking for a stick vacuum that’ll suck up the gunk in your hardwood-covered apartment, or a more powerful corded option for high-pile carpet (or lots of fur babies), we’ve got ’em all right here.
Top Early Cyber Week Vacuum Deals:
- Dyson V15 Detect Extra Cordless Vacuum (was $800, now $600)
- Samsung Jet 60 Flex Cordless Stick Vacuum (was $300, now $200)
- Shark Vertex DuoClean PowerFin Upright Vacuum (was $450, now $250)
- Samsung Bespoke Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum (was $700, now $500)
- INSE Corded Vacuum Cleaner (was $250, now $60)
And there are more where that came from. From household names such as Dyson and Shark to lesser-known (but just as high-quality) models like Eufy and Tineco, there’s a Black Friday vacuum deal out there for every home and budget.
This Cleverest award-winning Dyson vacuum stole our hearts for its size and power. “Not all vacuums are created equal—at least that’s what I’ve learned after using this Dyson for the past few months,” we wrote. “The cordless vac has eliminated the messy wires and extension cords I typically associate with one of my least favorite chores (and even made it inexplicably satisfying).” It has a two-hour runtime and a design that lends itself well to cleaning every hard-to-reach spot in your space.
An under $100 pick that puts in work? We’ll take that, thank you. Eureka’s upright vac is a multi-surface wonder, but we especially recommend it for a space with lots of carpet. It comes with several attachments for floorboards, the cracks in your couch, and more, and has a large bin.
For those on the hunt for a sleek and stylish vacuum that won’t be an eyesore in your living room, feast your gaze on the Samsung Bespoke Jet. Contributor Terri Williams gave the Bespoke Jet a whirl earlier this year and found it works just as beautifully as it is designed. “There’s more to the machine than just looks,” Terri said. The machine rests in a self-emptying cleaning station that doubles as a charging dock. It’s got a super high wattage at 210 W, while also staying pretty lightweight and thus provides a super easy manuever. “The combination of looks and performance make the Bespoke Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner my favorite new cleaning machine.” At 30% off, this is definitely one of the best early Black Friday sales out there right now.
This sleek robot vacuum from Dreametech is $100 off ahead of Black Friday, putting it on the more affordable side. We love it because it has both wet and dry capabilities. You can adjust everything via the app, and the vacuum is compatible with smart home devices like Alexa, too.
Larger spaces lend themselves to a vacuum with a wide head for easy, efficient cleaning. This Dyson model has an adjustable power trigger so you can add more suction where you need it, and it offers a full hour of runtime. Like most Dyson stick vacuums, it can be easily converted to a handheld vacuum, too, for cleaning furniture, cars, and more.
This sleek, gilded Roomba model is iRobot’s smartest and most powerful vacuum, so while it’s a splurge, you’ll certainly get what you pay for. It uses the brand’s proprietary three-stage cleaning tech with wider, rubber brushes to keep hair from getting tangled. It intelligently maps your home so it can navigate in neat rows, not missing a speck of debris.
iRobot knows a thing or two about making the best robot vacuums. This model connects to your wi-fi and runs on your schedule so you can come home to clean floors every day (if that’s your thing). It has a 90-minute runtime and a three-stage cleaning system to ensure a squeaky clean home.
Another, albeit slightly more affordable self-emptying robovac from Roomba, the j6+ has a slightly lower profile to nestle away a bit easier when out of use. When it’s on the move, the j6+ will also react in real time to any obstacles it might encounter—like some dirty shoes or a spare charging cord—in addition to mapping out your living space as it vacuums. And, if it meets something it’s not quite sure about, it’ll send you a picture to let you know. With a 60-day battery life and a nice $100 shaved off the price, you won’t want to miss this deal.
Don’t take our word for it: The Dyson V8 earned a spot in the Cleverest Awards in 2022 thanks to not one, but two nominees. According to designer Leah Ring, “the Dyson V8 cordless vacuum changed my life, and I will never go back to a corded vacuum again. Spending so much time inside, I find keeping a tidier place helps me focus more when I’m working, and the convenience of the cordless Dyson makes vacuuming not feel like such a chore.” Fellow designer Ryan Belli called the V8 an “emotional support robot” and says, “My dog sheds like nothing on this planet and without this lovely machine I would lose my mind.” While the Dyson V8 isn’t on sale, the Dyson V8 Absolute is over $200 off, and it’ll come with two different vacuum heads instead of the V8’s one as well as different attachment.
This Shark cordless vacuum is one of our go-to picks for hardwood floors, largely because of its self-cleaning ability. The brushroll and silicone PowerFins sweep up debris and pet hair without tangling. The floor nozzle has an LED light that helps one AD editor, “find more dirt than I would care to know about.” The HEPA filter protects against allergens, and it’s easy to empty the dustbin without getting sneezy. The vacuum also comes with two attachments, including a crevice tool for all the nooks and crannies.
What are the best Black Friday vacuum deals without at least one Dyson? The V15 Detect is the brand’s newest version of the Detect line, which has a microfiber brush head, LED light, and powerful suction to seek out even the tiniest specs of dust and debris. The LCD screen shows you exactly what’s being swept up in real-time (which, honestly, you might not want to see). This one is great for hardwood floors or low-pile carpets, and the dustbin is sizable enough that you won’t need to empty it every 10 minutes.
Even on sale, Dysons aren’t exactly budget-friendly. Shark’s lightweight Rocket model, however, offers similar functionality for just a third of the price: It’s bagless, under nine pounds, handles all floor types from carpet to hardwood, and easily converts into a handheld vacuum. It’s also corded, which means you’ll never have to worry about charging. Another perk: Even on sale, it still comes with a five-year warranty.
If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, as far as vacuums go, former Clever editor Sydney Wasserman found success with the Miele Classic C1 Bagged Canister Vacuum when we tested it for The Dust Up. “It’s really lightweight and comes with every type of nozzle you’d ever need in a home,” Sydney says of the machine, which was designed specifically for households with cats and dogs and includes attachments for parquet floors, upholstery and dusting. Miele vacuums are also a favorite among avid vacuumers on the VacuumCleaners subreddit, particularly for their suction power, longevity, and high-volume capacity (For the record: I’m also a big fan). For a limited time, you can save $50 on Amazon on the Compact model in Obsidian Black, which hardly ever goes on sale.
The Shark IQ Self-Empty Base Robot Vacuum won the title of Best Overall Robot Vacuum for Hardwood Floors from Terri’s list of 14 thoroughly tested machines. This smart, self-emptying machine can hold up to a month’s worth of dust and dirt. It can be programmed from your phone for easy cleaning, and it’s also self-charging. “[The IQ] has everything I wanted—and more—when searching for the best vacuums for hardwood floors,” Terri says. And—enter drumroll—it’s a whopping 30% off.
The best feature of this sleek white vacuum cleaner? Noise control. According to Terri, the Dreametech’s eight-layer noise-reduction system, “Allows me to actually hear my surroundings when I’m vacuuming.” Other fabulous functions include a V-shaped roller brush to help avoid jams or tangles, as well as an advanced filtration system.
Another neat two-in-one mop and vacuum, the Neatbot is also self emptying and is as effective on carpet as it is on hard floors–a distinction not all robot vacuums can claim. “I found the suction on this robot vacuum to be quite impressive regardless of what it was cleaning (although it can be startlingly loud when using maximum power),” Terri says. “It maps quickly and moves efficiently… Using the Neatbot App, it’s easy to schedule cleanings and create no-gone zones.”
If you’re more of an upright vacuum person, you can’t go wrong with Shark’s Navigator. It has a 0.9-quart capacity (larger than a Dyson), and works with a HEPA filter to trap dust and allergens inside. The body of the vacuum also detaches from the foot, so you can clean high or hard-to-reach corners with ease. And because it’s corded, you’ll never have to worry about charging—or having the battery die in the middle of a cleaning session. Now, it’s $60 less at both Target and Amazon.
While BISSELL’s Little Green isn’t exactly a vacuum (it uses both water and suction to lift dirt and stains) it is a top-rated favorite among reviewers. “It’s cleaned the surface stains in the carpet AND helped to get rid of old/lingering smells that were under the carpet in the pad,” one such reviewer writes. Another shares that it “gave me my couch back,” after years of stains from a dog and three kids. At under-$100 at Amazon, it’s the cheapest we’ve been able to find it online—and will be much cheaper than hiring a professional carpet cleaner.
Clean high or low with Samsung’s cordless stick vacuum, currently on sale at Amazon and Lowes. Thanks to its incredibly lightweight design, this vacuum is perfect for cleaning those hard-to-reach areas above cabinets or underneath furniture. Dust-free drapes, here you come. With adaptable surface features, you’ll be able to clean any floor surface— from hardwood to tile, or even carpet—with ease.
With a 35-minute run time, this cordless umber by Tineco senses what kind of mess it’s encountering on your floors and accordingly switches between mopping and vacuuming. It’ll even tell you what function it’s using when the iLoop™ ring on the LED screen changes from red to blue. Get it now for $120 off.
If you’re looking for one of the absolute best deals online right now, look no further—you can snag this INSE 6-in-1 vacuum for over 70% off. This takes the price from $250 to a little over $50. This model features three different brush attachments, can convert to a handheld vacuum (allowing you to get even more bang for your buck), works on hardwood floors and carpets, and feels super easy to maneuver. While it can easily transition into a handheld vacuum, it’s also got a 23-foot cleaning reach for when you’re trying to hit those high-up spots above your windows or on your curtains.
