Black Friday is upon us and it’s time to get that shopping list ready. As most of you know, the term ‘Black Friday’ was coined by the Philadelphia police back in the 1950s. This police slang was used to describe the days after Thanksgiving when shoppers from the surrounding suburbs would crowd the Philadelphia streets. Today, Black Friday is a term that specifically describes the day after Thanksgiving, which is November 24th this year. Black Friday has become synonymous with amazing discounts and is a shopping frenzy like none other. Shoppers in America spent approximately $655.8 billion last year with each shopper spending an average of $967.
There are so many deals and discounts available on Black Friday, that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. The key is to go in with a plan and shortlist the products and deal well in advance. In this post, I intend to leave you with the best Black Friday deals on vacuum cleaners available this year. As usual, I always publish a cover article with a week or so prior to this event. For the sake of keeping things concise, I’ve only listed down the best vacuum cleaner deals available on Amazon, Costco, Walmart, Sears and GearBest. So without further ado, here are the best 2017 vacuum cleaner deals you need to be on the lookout for this Black Friday.

Like always, Amazon serves as a great destination to get the best deals without elbowing fellow shoppers. Following are the best vacuum cleaner deals on Amazon this year.
SharkNinja Black Friday Deals on Amazon
If you are looking to score a solid discount on a Shark upright model, then look no further than the Shark Navigator Lift-Away. The NV356E model is being offered at 28% discount saving you a healthy $70 on the maximum retail price. A couple of months ago, I’ve reviewed the newer NV580 line of Navigators. The NV356 is almost just as good. Moving onto the next Shark vacuum, if you always wanted the Shark DuoClean IonFlex 2X handheld vacuum cleaner, this is the time to get one. This top-of-the-line Shark cordless cleaner is available at 11% discount. It may not sound much, but the deal helps you save about $49. The original Shark IonFlex DuoClean (IF201) is available at a 12% discount, which would save you $45.53 on its regular retail price. The Shark Rocket TruePet HV322 (Bordeaux) is now available at $192 on Amazon, which is $87.99 less than its original sticker price. The top upright from Shark, the Apex, also comes with a 12% discount, which saves you $49.
Dyson Black Friday Deals on Amazon
If you are looking for a cordless Dyson, then the V8 Animal is a great choice this Black Friday. Available at a 20% discount, this deal saves you an amazing $100 on the retail price. Not to be outdone by its cordless sibling, the Dyson Ball Animal 2 is now available at a 21% discount, saving you $105. Continuing the saga of discounts and deals, the Dyson V6 and V6 Motorhead both get $50 shaved off their original retail price. The Dyson V7 Motorhead is made available at 13% discount, which scores you a savings of $50.22. If you are looking for a heavily discounted Dyson Upright, the Dyson Ball Animal is up for sale at a 26% discount. This saves you a pretty hefty $130.
iRobot Black Friday Deals on Amazon
If you are looking for a mid-range Roomba then we are happy to report that the Roomba 650 is available at 20% discount. Available now at just $299.99, the deal will save you a significant $74 off the sticker price. Saving you about $76, the Roomba 652 also comes with a 20% discount. You can even get the more advanced Roomba 690 which is being offered at a 13% discount, saving you $50. However, considering the price tag, I highly recommend a Xiaomi bot over the these older Roomba models.
Black & Decker Black Friday Deals on Amazon
Known for being affordable and durable, there are plenty of Black and Decker vacuum cleaner offers this Black Friday. The Black and Decker Stick 2-in-1 cleaner is available at 21% discount. By availing this deal you get to save $31.87 on a model that’s already pretty cheap. The ultra-affordable Black and Decker Lithium Hand models are now available at 33% discount, which will save you $10 on the sticker price of $29.99. If you are looking for a cordless cleaner that comes with more features, you would be happy to know that the Black and Decker Dustbuster Cordless is now being offered at just $32.99. This will help you score a savings of $17 on the sticker price.
Other Vacuum Cleaner Deals on Amazon
What can safely be declared as the mother-of-all deals, the HoLife cordless vacuum is now available at a whopping 73% discount. The deal saves you approximately $117 on its maximum retail price. Available now at $49.99, the Homasy cordless is a full $40 cheaper than it was before. Samsung is now offering a generous discount of $150 on the PowerBot R7070. The Samsung PowerBot R9000 gets a $100.99 discount and is now available at $399.
Here’s a table which sums up the best on Amazon at the moment:
|1||Dyson V8 Animal||$61 (12%)||$437|
|2||Dyson V7 Motorhead||$49 (12%)||$350|
|3||Dyson Ball Animal 2||$105 (21%)||$395|
|4||Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Speed NV803||$130 (39%)||$200|

Costco is known for undercutting its competitors by offering great wholesale prices all year round. The only caveat is that you need to be a paid member to avail most of these discounts. Costco is pretty careful about revealing their prices to non-members, but we were able to hunt down a couple of deals.
Save $130 on Dyson Ball Animal at Costco
The Dyson Ball Animal will be available at $269.99, that’s an amazing discount of $130 on its regular wholesale price. Now, because this is a discount on the already discounted wholesale price, it undercuts the Amazon deal of the Dyson Ball Animal by a margin of $100.
Save $120 on Dyson V7 Animal at Costco
You will also be able to buy the Dyson V7 Animal cordless cleaner at $329.99, an amazing $120 cheaper than the wholesale price. The Dyson’s discounted price puts it in direct competition with Shark IonFlex DuoClean available at Amazon, which is priced at $325.
You can grab these deals by either walking into a Costco retail location or by shopping online. These deals are scheduled to be available on Thanksgiving Day for online customers. Customers who plan on visiting a nearby store, need to wait a little bit longer and can avail these discounts starting 7.00 AM this Black Friday. If you are buying for resale purposes, you should know that the buying limit is set at 5 per customer.
Whether you are visiting a store or ordering online, you can be sure that Walmart will give you access to some great deals and discounts. As we gear up for Black Friday, the following are a few amazing money-saving vacuum cleaner deals available at Walmart.
SharkNinja Black Friday Deals at Walmart
The Shark Ion Rocket Cordless cleaner is currently listed as a Rollback product in Walmart. Now, available at $149, the deal saves you $90 on the original listed price of $239. The RV700 Shark Ion Robot is also available at a discounted price of $269, saving you $30. If you are looking for an old school work horse, the Shark Rotator Professional vacuum cleaner is listed with the discounted price of $196, that’s $42 less than the previous price. The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away also manages to shed its cost and is available at $197, an impressive $62 less than its original price. If you want a handheld Shark product, then the Shark IonFlex DuoClean (IF200) comes at a discounted price of $269 at Walmart, saving you $30 on its initial cost.
Dyson Black Friday Deals at Walmart
Dyson is currently offering some amazing discounts on both online shopping sites and in stores. Walmart features its fair share of Dyson products that come at heavily discounted prices. First up is the Dyson UP13, that’s listed at $219, saving you a whopping $180. Continuing on, the Dyson DC33 is currently available at $199, that’s a healthy $80 price drop. Dyson Ball Animal 2 is listed at $394.98 at Walmart, which helps you save $104 on the original retail price. Walmart is also offering a $50 discount on the Dyson V6 Slim. If you are on the lookout for a heavy-duty upright cleaner, the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball is currently priced at $464.99, an awesome $134 cheaper than its original price. If you want something smaller but equally effective, the Dyson Small Ball should be the cleaner of choice. It’s priced at $317, which saves you a pretty decent $82. The Dyson DC34 handheld also deserves a mention with its listed price of just $99. The great thing about this deal is that it saves you $70 on a budget product and you get to take home a Dyson handheld at less than a hundred bucks.
Bissell Black Friday Deals at Walmart
Bissell manufactures an exclusive range of products for Walmart. The deals available on Bissell products pale in comparison to the jaw-dropping discounts offered on Dyson models. However, if you are a Bissell fan, you would get access to some nice deals when shopping at Walmart this Black Friday. The Bissell PowerForce Helix gets a $9 price cut. That may seem insignificant, but it’s a hefty price-cut considering the maximum retail price of this product is only $68. The Bissell PowerForce Turbo Rewind sheds $13 of its previously listed price and is now available at $66. Bissell’s 1650-Watt Eraser upright cleaner is now listed at only $219, $30 less than its sticker price.
Hoover Black Friday Deals at Walmart
Walmart is home to a pretty good selection of Hoover products. This is why you should expect more than a few deals on Hoover vacuum cleaners this Black Friday. The Hoover WindTunnel upright definitely deserves a mention with its ultra-low asking price of just $149. The product manages to shed $79.99 off its price. Hoover React upright cleaner is now $70 cheaper at Walmart and is available at $198.
Hoover Cruise cordless cleaner gets a $31 discount and it’s now priced at $128. If the Shark DuoClean is way over your budget, the Hoover Cruise’s discounted price and sturdy built quality should be too good to pass. In an attempt to clear up some space for Black Friday, Walmart is currently offering a $47 price drop on the Hoover Floormate. However, you should keep in mind that this is listed under the clearance sale section and thus stocks might not last till Black Friday.
The Best Black Friday Vacuum Cleaner Deals at Walmart (Other Brands)
Barring the above-mentioned brands, there are only a few good vacuum cleaner deals at Walmart. The Dirt Devil Vigor upright cleaner is now $32 cheaper and is available at $57.99. However, this particular product has received several customer complaints and bad reviews. Therefore, we suggest treading carefully. The much more popular Dirt Devil Power Swerve cordless is also available at a discount. Priced at only $59, the Dirt Devil Swerve is a great choice if you are looking for a budget cordless cleaner. Walmart has also slashed down the price of Black and Decker CHV1410 handheld cleaner. This popular model is now available at only $36.68, which is $18 cheaper than its previously listed price.
Known for offering discounts on almost all of their featured products, Sears is a great place to start hunting for Black Friday deals. They are yet to announce their list of deals for the 2017 Black Friday. However, we can make an approximation based on the deals available right now.
Scoring a Roomba under $400 is a big deal. The Roomba 690 Wi-Fi enabled bot is currently available at Sears at $393.45. By availing this deal you get to bag a discount of $67.37. The Roomba 890 is offered at a discounted price of $499, which is a straight up $100 discount on the sticker price. The Roomba 890 Connected, on the other hand, is available at $592.23. Considering it’s a Roomba and it’s a relatively modern Wi-Fi enabled bot, the $119 discount on the sticker price is certainly alluring. The ultimate in cordless cleaning experience, the Dyson V8 Absolute gets a hefty $100 price slash and is available at Sears.
While all the products at Sears seem to come at a discount, they are almost never quite able to beat the prices available on Amazon, Walmart, or Costco. However, they do manage to offer some pretty awesome discounts on Black Friday. For example, last year they offered up to 40% discount on all Shark products. Keep a look out for Sears Black Friday ads to know the best vacuum cleaner deals that will be available this year.
GearBest is a rather new player in the online shopping world. They aim to provide a better buying experience than what you get with AliExpress/Alibaba. Covering products made in China, GearBest has evolved rapidly and holds now multiple warehouses in US, UK, HK and so on. This greatly reduces the shipping time. If you’re interested in the live BF offers from GearBest, make sure you check out this page with deals and coupon codes which I update pretty often.
Bagging a great deal on vacuum cleaners this Black Friday boil down to great planning and perseverance. Here’s a tip: Rather than hitting the streets and hunting for great deals, it’s best to stay indoors and look for deals online. You will not only be able to avoid the crowd of desperate shoppers, but you will also save on transport cost.
I wish you a happy Black Friday, and best of luck with your shopping!
