It’s not the latest V11, but it’s still a formidable void. It offers around an hour of runtime, has 55% more suction power than the Dyson V7 and, as the name suggests, is designed for homes with pets. You get 4 accessories, including a motorized mini tool for removing animal hair from upholstery and tight spaces.
Right now, you can save $ 150 on the “Pro” version of the Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal. It is finished in copper rather than iron. It also has a 40% larger bin than the previous V8 Absolute model and up to 40 minutes of fade-free power when using the included soft roller cleaning head.

This Shark robot vacuum doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Still, he’s smart enough to empty his own trash, map floors, and connect to your home’s Wi-Fi. And starting at 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET) today, November 25, Walmart will sell it for $ 70 off its list price.
Designed to fight dirt, grime and pet hair, the Bissell Iconpet cordless vacuum works with a rechargeable battery. It also has LED lights for sucking in dark corners. With a list price of $ 350, the Iconpet is tempting at $ 250.

This lightweight cordless vacuum from Shark typically sells for $ 230. Right now, Amazon is selling it for $ 80 less than usual.
The Roomba i3 Plus is one of iRobot’s more affordable robot vacuum models. Even so, it’s relatively new and comes with a lot of bells and whistles that you find in more expensive robots. For example, the i3 Plus connects to Wi-Fi, communicates with the cloud, has a mobile app, and creates floor plans while cleaning. It also has a charging station that empties the vacuum cleaner bin after cleaning.
