Any recommendations for a good vacuum between $75 &$150?

Dont have deep carpeting so looking for one that works best on thin carpets & floors. Have a dog, she doesnt shed alot, but some. Need 1 either canister or lightweight, go upstairs & need to get under beds & such.

Any good after Xmas sales?

  • We love our Dyson. They have several different models in a range of prices. Got ours at Kohls.

  • I have a Bissel Helix System. I got it at for $75 with free shipping. It's been great.

  • I'm sold on Oreck - costs more but lightweight and very efficient for both floors and carpets.

  • I have a Dyson but that is only for deep cleaning. For around the house and quick cleanups I use Electrolux ErgoRapido Cordless/Handheld Stick Vacuum. I got mine at Target on sale for around $100. It has a charging station that it sits on and you just pull it out when you need it. A handheld vacuum pops out of the bottom for small messes. I love the fact that it is lightweight and works great on tile, laminate and also thin carpets and rugs. It is a canister so you don't have to worry about bags and it is very easy to empty.

  • Thank you all so much, bought an ORECK canister on sale, its small but so far seems perfect for our needs - on sale for $149 - & store is nearby so can bring in anytime for repairs FOC.
