Trying to decide on a vacuum.....

I desperately am looking for a new vacuum. I had a Kirby salesman here, liked it but WAY TOO PRICEY! My son has really bad allergies and we need a good one for removing pet hair AND dirt!!!!!! I have used hoovers and bissels. Hate both of em!!!!! Any suggestions?

  • Dyson animal vacs are AMAZING. Like the best thing in the world. They are like $500 though. ..

  • A Kirby salesman came over the other day and tried to sell me a vacuum... He went down to 400 $... but I just bought a new vacuum a few weeks before so I didn't take his offer!

  • I asked exactly the same question 8 months ago. Well, I read lots of reviews and decided to get a Dyson. We are really happy with it and it works like a charm. It's light, easy to move around and the best part is we don't need to buy any bag for it. DH enjoys vacuuming with it and hasn't complained about it.

  • I have the Dyson DC 14 and we love it! I think they are well worth the price. But you can usually find some on sale. We got the full kit with all of the attachments for less than $300.

  • I had acouple Kirby's they didn't live up to their Claims! I have A Pink Dyson! I Love it! I bought the Pink one since $40.00 of it went to breast cancer! Sometimes when Target has them on sale. They give you a free $100.00 Gift Card with purchase! They had that sale the day after Thanksgiving! But they ran out of them. No rainchecks either! But it was a good sale to who ever got one! Best of Luck on your choice!

  • i have a hoover the one where the cord retracts and i've had it for almost 2 years and the suction is still unbelievable. I'd recommend that one to anyone.
