If you’re looking for a new vacuum, today’s your lucky day! Dyson’s V8 Absolute is currently $150 off on their site, with a best price guarantee. But, the sale is only on for a limited time, so act fast if you want to score one of these powerful little guys on sale! If you’re unsure whether or not you should take the plunge, fear not: The V8 Absolute is our top pick for the best overall vacuum, and here’s a quick rundown of what makes it so great.

Powerful, Lightweight, and Easy to Use

For its size, and relatively affordable price, the V8 Absolute packs a punch. Its V8 motor creates powerful suction that deep cleans carpets and, when fully charged, has a run time of 40 minutes. Its lightweight design (it’s just under six pounds) makes vacuuming a breeze, even for the upper third of your space. It also comes with all the tools needed to convert it to a powerful handheld, including a motorized brush tool that’s great for upholstery or cars. Finally, the wall-mounted charging dock keeps everything organized and charged, so it’s always ready to go when you need it.


The V8 is also the Goldilocks of the Dyson family—we feel it strikes a happy medium between some of their super high-end models and their traditional corded vacuums, making it versatile enough for any home. Notably, it comes with two main cleaning heads for both hard floors and carpets or rugs. The soft woven cleaning head is gentle on hard floors but still does a great job picking up dirt and dust, while the powerful direct-drive cleaning head can deep clean even high-pile carpets or rugs. It’s rare to find a cordless stick vacuum that can effectively tackle carpets, but in our testing, the V8 Absolute was more than up for the challenge!

Certified Asthma & Allergy Friendly

For anyone with allergies or pets, the V8 Absolute’s whole machine filtration system is a definite plus. The washable lifetime filter actually helps improve air quality as you vacuum by capturing dust and allergens and expelling cleaner air. Another big bonus is its no-touch bin emptying. Instead of having a release trigger on the bottom of its canister like many other cordless stick vacuum designs, the V8 Absolute’s release trigger is on the top and allows you to pull the motor and filter upwards to easily release dust and dirt, fuss-free.

While the Dyson V8 Absolute is our favorite overall vacuum (and a personal favorite among several AT staffers), Dyson’s V7 Absolute is also on sale for $249.99. It’s basically an earlier version of the V8 Absolute, and hence a little more affordable, but still a really solid choice for a cordless stick vacuum that can tackle hard floors and carpets. Its chic black color is exclusive to Dyson’s site, and you can get a free furniture detailing kit with purchase. You can also save on air purifiers, upright vacuums, and lighting from Dyson right now—for a full list of all of their current discounts, check out their deals page.
