Walmart Canada: Bissell 3-in-1 Stick Vac Now Only $17

Walmart Canada: Bissell 3 in 1 Stick Vac Now Only $17

With college and university comes leaving the nest. If you or your child is heading off to their new place or a dorm room, there are going to be some essentials they need. Besides the toaster oven or hot plate, they might want to vacuum their little space. Of course, you could send them away with your 100-pound Kirby vacuum from 1969, or you could buy them this Bissell 3-in-1 stick vac for only $17 (regular price $24.96). You’ll get it shipped for free too.

This lightweight powerhouse does three jobs. It can be used as a stick vac for floors, as a stair vac and as a hand vac. I’m actually thinking of getting one for my kitchen for those jobs I just don’t want to pull out my $500 Dyson for. You know, when you child walks around the house with their toast, or when the bowl of cereal hits the kitchen floor. But, it looks like this vac is powerful enough to get up the dog hair on my hardwood as well, so it could be used as an everyday vacuum.

The Bissell stick vac has over 100 reviews, with the majority giving it a 5-star rating. It really only has eight poor reviews. This ShopWise person summed it up perfectly:

Great product. Powerful vacuum at an awesome price. Value Worthy 100%. I keep this handy in my kitchen all the time. It’s light but powerful. Get the job done fast and easy. Not to mention great price!

The Bissell stick vac weighs less than four pounds, so you know what that means, don’t you? Child labour! Yesterday my 8-year-old spilled a large quantity of lemonade all over my kitchen floor. Although I gave him the steam mop to clean it up, he did a poor job. I think giving him a chore like vacuuming the kitchen with this super light vacuum would work out well. I’m even wondering if my 3-year-old could take on the job. It looks like it is only available in siliver, so your fuchsia dreams will have to be put on hold.

Lowe’s Canada: 50% Off Shop-Vac Now $84.50

Posted by on June 23, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Lowes Canada: 50% Off Shop Vac Now $84.50

Lowe’s Canada has put this Shop-Vac 45 L 6.5-Peak HP Shop Vacuum on sale for just $84.50, which is 50% off the original price of $169. You will also receive free parcel shipping.

Shop-Vacs are fantastic for anyone with a garage, shop, or work shed that needs a little help being cleaned. They have powerful enough suction to clean up some of the worst messes and they can handle abuse a normal vacuum cannot. This Peak HP shop vacuum is a wet/dry unit, which means it can suck up both dry goods as well as liquids without harming the vacuum. It is designed to handle everyday garage messes, which often include fluids. This vacuum will also not require emptying all that often as it is a 45L model. It also has a 2 1/2 inch hose to pick up larger pieces of debris.

For me, I do not own a shop or a garage so, you would think, this vacuum would be rather useless. However, I own a car that I like to clean out myself instead of pay someone else to do so or shovel coins into my local car wash to use their vacuum. This Shop-Vac is perfect for cleaning the interior of a car. It can handle all the crumbs, dirt chunks, and any liquids that might have spilled. With the long, wide, and flexible cord, the shop vacuums really beat conventional vacuums for cleaning car interiors. In my experience, shop vacuums are also lighter than your usual in-home vacuum, which makes them much easy to maneuver when cleaning up.

However, this is not a simple shop vacuum: it is a 2-in-1 unit, which features a powerful yard blower to make yard cleanup a breeze (literally). The blower is detachable for easy utilization. Clean the leaves off your patio or driveway with this simple tool.

The Shop-Vac has 6.5 HP and uses a bag and cartridge filtration system. It comes with several different attachments as you can see in the image above. The vacuum also comes with a five-year warranty, which is pretty surprising given how many items are only sold with one year warranties these days.

Thankfully, this Shop-Vac will ship with parcel shipping, which is free across Canada so there are no extra fees. I think this is a great deal for a 2-in-1 wet/dry vacuum with a detachable blower.

Lowes Canada: Shop-Vac Wet/Dry Only $20 Today Only

Lowes Canada: Shop Vac Wet/Dry Only $20 Today Only

Save $20 off the regular price of $39.98 on the Shop-Vac 9L 2.5 peak HP shop vacuum at Lowes, now $19.98 today only.

I think 50% off this very handy tool is a great deal! This Shop-Vac is only 9L, but it makes it easy to take places and with a top carry handle, it is extremely portable. It also has a wall mounting bracket and all the tools store right on the machine, so you always know where the vacuum is and the tools. It can also be reversed so you can use it as a blower, a great multi-functionality for one $20 vacuum. You can blow leaves and dirt out of your garage and you can even use it to inflate things like air mattresses or your kids blow up beach toys.

We are moving soon and know we are going to have a lot of cleaning on our hands, both at the house we sold and the one we are moving into. It would be handy to have this to clean up the new house before we move in all our stuff, while keeping my regular vacuum at home to do the carpets once the furniture is gone.

The reviews for this machine are phenomenal, with an overall 4.5 star rating out of 5. It has 111 reviews, with 67 of them being five-star. Reviewers state the vacuum is handy and easily portable, making it great for the garage and the car. And although the vacuum itself is small, it is still very powerful.

Here is one review that might help make your decision to spend $20 easier:

I love my little shop vac. It”s powerful, compact, and awesome investment for my home cleaning tools. It”s very portable and great for cobwebbing, furniture cracks, register vents. I just hook a long extension chord and go, go, go.

Another perk to buying this vacuum is that it ships for free with free parcel shipping from Lowes.

Best Buy Canada: 20% Off All iRobot Vacuums

Best Buy Canada: 20% Off All iRobot Vacuums

Get 20% off all iRobot vacuums and literally get a robot to sweep your floors!

If there is one item I absolutely need, it is one of these iRobot vacuums. With three crumb-trailers and a puppy, walking in my house is iffy. We are always stepping on something spilled and the dog hair is so obvious on my dark hardwood floors. I would need to vacuum three times a day to keep it neat. Enter this iRobot vacuum, which I could leave on all day (if that is possible), or even at night while we sleep. It is like a dream come true.

All discounted prices are shown in cart. There are five different styles of the vacuum, plus a floor washer! Some are already sold out or not available online, so if you’d like one, shop quick.

This 770 model is the cream of the crop and features room to room cleaning, which means it won’t leave one room until it is done, but then goes on to the next. It picks up 98% of dust, dirt and pet hair from your floors and you can even schedule it for when you want it to work. It won’t be late or watch tv, either! Was $579.99, now $439.99.

The least expensive model is the 630, which has the same three-stage cleaning and a dirt detect sensor, just not the room to room or timer features. Still pretty awesome of it to clean your house though. Was $429.99, now $343.99.

Once your floors are done been vacuumed, put on the Scooba floor washing robot, which lays down cleaning solution, scrubs the floor, then squeegees up the mess. I think I’m in love. Was $329.99, now $263.99.

I have the floor washer and the 770 on my Christmas list!

Shipping is free when you spend $20, so enjoy that perk as well.

Amazon Canada: 50% Off Bissell Products For Back To School

Get up to 50% off upright and canister vacuums, steam mops, cordless sweepers, and handheld vacuums from Bissell from Amazon.

Not just for back to school, everyone needs a vacuum. But, if you are sending your not-so-little-one off to university, whether they live in a dorm or an apartment, they are going to need some tools for keeping the floors of their tiny space clean.

This stick vacuum is the perfect price for doing small areas and it is easy to keep stored away because of its slimness. A quick-release handle lets it become a handheld, for all those spilled chips. Was $29.99, now $19.99.

Steam mops are like a gift from above. I can not stand mopping floors, or doing it the old school way like my husband so enjoys – on hands and knees with a cloth! I take the easy road with a steam mop, which I think does a superb job and is so easy. This steam mop select in titanium is a sweet price, now only $59.99, was $79.99.

I need to convince my husband that we need this little green multi-purpose compact deep cleaner. With three little animals, plus three pets, you can imagine what my carpets look like. Steam cleaning every weekend is not an option, but this definitely is. Was $99.99, now $79.99.

Shipping is free when you spend over $25. (Photo credit: Jaymie Koroluk)

Home Depot Boxing Week: All Vacuums 15% Off

Home Depot is starting Boxing Week early and has all vacuums 15% off online and in-stores (some items only available online).

Let’s start off with the fantasy vacuum – the one that does the job for you – the Roomba robotic vacuum (item #991521). With automatically adjusting heads for different floors, this machine stays longer on dirtier areas (it’s smart like that). You can even schedule it to start at a certain time! Set up virtual walls where Roomba is not allowed to go and this guy will vacuum up to three rooms on its own. Get it for only $381.65, regularly $449.

I can’t say enough good things about Dyson and this Dyson hand-held (item #918375) is next on my wish list. With the new Dyson digital motor featuring Root Cyclone technology you will never lose suction. Washable filters and an easy to empty hygienic bin make this an easy-to-maintain vacuum. Get it for $169.99, regularly $199.99.

If you need a carpet cleaner, the Bissell Proheat Powersteamer (item #971526) is a great upright deep cleaner (and I know with 22 people coming to my house for Christmas, I’m going to need it). With superior suction and deep cleaning, the built-in heater heats hot tap water while the DirtLifter™ power brush has 6 rows of brushes to lift out all that dirt. Get it for $195.49, regularly $229.99.

Get free shipping on purchases over $299 until January 6, 2013.

Dyson: $100 Off 1 of 5 High-End Vacuums

Posted by on August 19, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Dyson: $100 Off 1 of 5 High End Vacuums

Dyson lets you clean up in two ways with this vacuum deal.

The five vacuums on sale are as follows:

Dyson is an amazing company. They have managed to somehow make vacuums and other wind-based products sexy. To make it even better, they are nerds. Just look at videos like this to see how nerdy their engineers really are.

There are two full upright vacuums and three little compact ones. They all seem to be better suited for certain tasks so take a read through the links above to see which one is best for you. It seems, from all I hear, that these are some of the best vacuums you can buy. It’s the difference between a Gaggenau and a Frigidaire.

Even in their naming, they are awesome. Stowaway is obviously because it’s small and compact and can hide in a small area without being noticed, much as a stowaway on a ship. They could have called it the “Dyson Compact” or something but they gave it the much more awesome name, Stowaway. Motorhead is named like that because it has a motorized brush bar. Could have been the “Dyson FWQ6279 Motorized Brush Bar Vacuum” but they decided to give it the same name as a Heavy Metal band.

Even the Dyson Ball (the DC29 and DC25 are ball vacuums) seems likely to have been named after the Dyson Sphere which is an ultra-nerdy concept that you can read up on if you are so inclined. I’d go into teacher mode and tell you all about them but then you’d fall asleep and miss out on the cool deal.
