    If you’re looking for a new vacuum, this is a great opportunity to get one for a low price. Big brands and retailers alike are offering up plenty of Cyber Monday deals, and we’ve found more than a few of the top models in our ratings at some of their lowest prices of the year.

    We take into consideration a variety of factors when highlighting vacuum sales. This includes a model’s performance in CR’s tests, its predicted reliability based on data from our member surveys, and the size of the discount compared with the original list price and the current “street price” (i.e., the typical cost of the product).

    Below, you’ll find the best deals available now on canister vacuums plus handheld, stick, robotic, and upright models that perform well in CR’s tests.

    And if you don’t see a model that fits your needs don’t worry. We expect to see more deals than usual at Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices all the way up to the holidays. Check back often for the latest offers on models that perform well, and take a look at CR’s Deals hub for the latest.

    Robotic Vacuums

    Like the Roomba s9+ (above), the Roomba j7+ is smart enough to learn your home’s layout and then offer up all sorts of control over when, where, and how it cleans. It may be one of the smartest robots, period, because it’s designed to recognize and avoid hazards around your home like pet waste, stray socks, and other items that can snarl a robot in its tracks. Its cleaning performance isn’t as strong as that of the Roomba s9+, but it’s a much nimbler navigator overall and arguably more pleasant to use. The Roomba j7+ comes with an auto-emptying dock.

    Why it’s a good deal: Amazon has the lowest price we’ve ever seen by $90—you won’t see the discount until you check out, so double check the price before you buy.

    One of the shortest and lightest robots that CR has tested, the budget-friendly Eufy RoboVac 11S drives under furniture and wiggles away from hazards like power cords and carpet fringe better than most. It struggles to thoroughly clean large areas, but it’s nimble, making it a great option for cleaning a few rooms at a time. It’s also quiet, and the cleaning performance is respectable for its price. Eufy makes a handful of robots very similar to the 11S, but this is the most basic model, and one of the few robotic vacuums still available that doesn’t connect to the internet.

    Why it’s a good deal: You can get this vacuum for the second-best price we’ve seen. It was only $100 at Eufy for Black Friday, but this is still a great discount. If you’re shopping at eufy, use the discount code WS24BF11S.

    The Samsung Jet Bot+ receives high marks across the board in CR’s tests, standing out particularly in our tests for cleaning bare floors and edges, as well as in our noise test, where it receives an Excellent rating. Its only weak spot is data privacy, where it receives a middling score, but that’s common for the product category. Once the robot docks after cleaning, the self-emptying dock automatically empties the contents from the bot into an enclosed disposable bag in the base.

    Why it’s a good deal: Amazon’s Cyber Monday price is the best we’ve ever seen for this model.

    The Shark AI Self-Empty robotic vacuum earns top scores for both pet hair and bare floors, but it isn’t a good candidate for carpet. Once it’s docked, a vacuum built into the docking station automatically sucks the contents from the bin into a bagless container. The upside of this system is that unlike competitors’ models, you don’t need to purchase bags; the downside is that emptying the bin could trigger allergies. Shark robotic vacuums earned a high score for reliability but only a middling score for owner satisfaction.

    Why it’s a good deal: We usually see this model sell for about $500, so this is a good score if you’re not dealing with a ton of carpet.

    The Samsung Jet Bot AI+ VR50T95735W is an all-around champ in our robotic vacuum tests, receiving high scores for its ability to clean carpet, bare floors, pet hair, and the edges of walls and corners. It also offers impeccable navigation and receives a high rating for ease of use. It comes with a self-emptying dock and features WiFi connectivity with smartphone control via the SmartThings app.

    Why it’s a good deal: Robotic vacuums tend to be expensive, and this is your chance to save $400 on this high performer.

    The iRobot Roomba i3 Evo is a great option for homes of any size because it navigates in a grid pattern and keeps track of the spots it has and hasn’t cleaned. Maintenance and repairs are easy to perform at home, and iRobot has a track record for keeping spare parts available for every Roomba model it has sold. The Roomba i3+ Evo’s cleaning performance is strong. The brushless, rubberized rollers are great for pet hair; it earns an excellent rating on that test. It’s also great at avoiding bot-snarling hazards like power cords.

    Why it’s a good deal: Amazon’s on-page coupon makes this vacuum $50 less than at any other retailer. The discount won’t appear until you reach checkout.

    Stick Vacuums

    The Tineco Pure One S11 cleans impressively in all our major tests and has many features to boot. An LED panel shows how much battery life you have left as well as the suction level, which varies when you switch from bare floors to carpet. A sensor detects the amount of debris and adapts the suction power accordingly. If you’re so inclined, you can connect to a Tineco app that indicates cleaning performance, such as battery life, on your smartphone. In CR’s tests, it ran for 22 minutes per charge when using both the high and low settings.

    Why it’s a good deal: If you need a vacuum now, this is a huge discount for this model at Amazon with a $105 on-page coupon.

    Miele has a sterling reputation for its plug-in vacuums, and the Triflex HX1 is its first cordless model. It earns top-notch scores on almost all our tests. The coolest part, though, is that you can put its parts together in two different styles: In a modern stick-type setup, with the weight at the top and a long shaft that can reach into cramped areas; or a more traditional upright configuration, with better balance but a bulkier middle.

    Why it’s a good deal: This brand doesn’t go on sale often, so take advantage of this discount before it’s gone.

    The LG A9 Kompressor lands near the top of our list of worthy contenders. It aces our carpet, bare-floors, and pet-hair tests and leaves nothing behind when you vacuum along the edges of a room. It’s not quite as quiet as some of the cordless stick vacs we test, but it won’t bother you during short bursts of cleanup. It runs for almost a full half-hour on one battery charge. Better yet, it comes with two batteries.

    Why it’s a good deal: It’s almost half off, a hefty discount.

    The Tineco Pure One S11 Tango EX is feature-packed, with an LED panel that indicates battery life and suction power. In addition to the main power brush, it comes with a soft power brush—a nice extra if you have wood floors. It runs for 17 minutes on one charge. You can use Tineco’s app to monitor battery life, but if you don’t want to be bothered with another app on your phone, you can get all the information you need from the LED panel.

    Why it’s a good deal: This vacuum has been on sale for weeks but just dropped an additional $120, making this the best price we’ve seen.

    This lightweight, cordless Samsung stick vac excels at all CR’s tests. We especially like that the digital display allows you to check the power level, the battery life and maintenance issues such as clogging. In CR tests, it runs for about 36 minutes per charge on low power and 7 minutes on high power.

    Why it’s a good deal: For about 13 percent off you get a reliable vacuum with all the bells and whistles.

    The lightweight Samsung Jet 75 Complete aces our testing across the board. The brand touts an advanced filtration system to collect dust and allergens that was successful in emissions tests. The display gives notifications such as power level and battery life. In CR tests, one battery for the Samsung Jet 75 runs for about 43 minutes per charge on low and 10 minutes on the high setting.

    Why it’s a good deal: You won’t want to miss this deal if someone in your household suffers from allergies.

    The Shark Vertex Pro IZ662H was a sharp performer in CR’s tough tests. It cruised through our tests for carpet, bare floors, and even pesky pet hair. And it didn’t leave anything behind along the edges. It’s packed with features, and testers liked the duo clean power head with both bristle and soft rollers. (The roller also uses bristle guards and a combing device to remove hair automatically.) More pluses: It has a flexible wand to streamline its profile for better under-furniture clearance, and it folds for compact storage. In CR’s tests, one battery for the Vertex Pro ran for about 42 minutes per charge on low and 12 minutes on high.

    Why it’s a good deal: You save 38 percent on a vacuum from a very reliable brand, and it’s super easy to store.

    This powerful, high-end Dyson vac features a laser light on its soft roller powerhead that reveals the dust in its path. The laser feature works best in low light or on dark flooring. A sensor detects the sizes of particles that are picked up, and a chart on the display shows the particle count size. In CR runtime tests, the vacuum runs for about 70 minutes per charge on low mode and 8 minutes on high mode.

    Why it’s a good deal: Dyson vacs tend to be pricey, and fans wait for discounts like this one.

    The “Ultralight” moniker for the Shark Vertex Ultralight HZ2002 refers to its light weight (2.9 pounds) when used in hand vac mode (without the stick). The Shark impressed in our tests for carpet, bare floors, and pet hair, and did almost as well for edges. Although not as versatile as a cordless vacuum, this model has a 30-foot cord that’s long enough so you won’t have to constantly map out your electrical outlets.

    Why it’s a good deal: This vacuum is now $130 off, the lowest price we’ve seen since Prime Day.

    The cordless Samsung Jet 90 vac scores highly in all CR’s tests and is more powerful than some of its competitors. Our testers like the sleek and solid stand and the digital display that allows you to check the power level, the battery life and maintenance issues. In CR tests, it runs for about 44 minutes per charge on low power and 10 minutes on high power.

    Why it’s a good deal: At almost $600 it’s still not cheap—but you are saving over $80 and getting a capable vacuum from a good brand.

    Canister Vacuums

    You can’t go wrong with the bagged Kenmore Elite Pet Friendly UltraPlush 81714. It’s especially friendly for pet owners and rates high on the pet-hair test. It’s also a champ at cleaning bare floors and rates well for cleaning carpet, making it a smart choice if you have a combination of flooring. Hose suction rates above average, which means the attachments should be effective. It doesn’t do particularly well in our noise test; there are quieter choices. 

    Why it’s a good deal: The on-page coupon brings the sale price under $400.

    Impressive cleaning, lots of airflow for tools, and fairly quiet operation helped make this bagless canister a top pick. The Kenmore 22614 is also a great choice for cleaning up pet hair. Key features include manual carpet pile-height adjustment, suction control, a brush on/off switch, and a retractable cord. One caveat: Handling this vacuum’s 23 pounds takes some muscle. In our member survey, Kenmore canisters earned average scores for both predicted reliability and owner satisfaction.

    Why it’s a good deal: At either sale price or full price you get a great vacuum, so why not pay less?

    The versatile Kenmore Pop-N-Go BC4026 makes an impressive showing on both our bare-floor and pet-hair tests, leaving little to nothing behind. It also earns a Very Good rating for carpet cleaning. The Pop-N-Go name refers to how easy it is to attach the floor brush, and our testers like the way this vacuum maneuvers around and under furniture. Emissions are clean, and this vacuum has robust airflow, making it a good choice if you often use your attachments to clean upholstery.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is a more modest discount than Wayfair’s site indicates; the same model is selling for about $319 at several other retailers.

    Upright Vacuums

    The 17-pound Dyson Ball Animal 2 has impressive results in CR’s lab tests for carpet cleaning. It aces our bare-floor and pet-hair tests, too. Emissions are clean, so this vacuum won’t spew debris back into the room (although emptying the bin can stir up some dust). It comes with attachments that help you get into tight spaces. In our brand reliability survey, Dyson uprights earned middle-of-the-road scores for predicted reliability and owner satisfaction.

    Why it’s a good deal: Dyson sales are few and far between, and this price is the lowest we’ve seen all year.

    One of the many Sharks in our vacuum ratings, the Shark Rotator Lift-Away ADV DuoClean LA500 rises almost to the top of our bagless upright ratings, acing our tests for bare floors and pet hair and earning a Very Good rating in our carpet-cleaning test. The “Lift-Away” in the model name refers to the fact that you can lift the collection bin away from the main handle and use it as a canister. This comes in handy when cleaning stairs and reaching into corners for cobwebs. Airflow is ample, and the Shark comes with several attachments.

    Why it’s a good deal: The original price is reasonable, and the discount makes it even more of a bargain.

    The 17-pound bagless Shark Vertex DuoClean has plenty of bells and whistles. Testers like the Duo brush roll, which is great for both carpet and bare floors. The vacuum also picks up pet hair especially well, earning an Excellent rating on that test. It has exceptional suction power and does a solid job containing small dust particles in the dustbin. The lift-away canister makes it easy to clean out-of-the-way places.

    Why it’s a good deal: At almost half off the usual price, it’s worth a look.

    The 17-pound Shark Apex DuoClean Zero-M Powered Lift-Away AZ1002 is bagless and has micro-filtration, as well as a detachable handheld canister and a 30-foot cord. This high-end Shark is laden with bells and whistles, yet it underperforms in CR’s most important test: Its carpet-cleaning score is just good, a score that trails many uprights. That said, it cleans bare floors and pet hair especially well and has exceptional suction power, and its emissions are free of debris.

    Why it’s a good deal: Amazon’s $200 discount is the lowest price we’ve seen for this model.
