Whether your home is prone to accidental crumb trails, shedding pets, or little humans gleefully spilling everything everywhere, owning a quality vacuum is an absolute must (for basically anyone). The market is crowded, to say the least, but we’ve tested all kinds of models, like battery-powered options, classic canisters, and run-on-their-own robots. The best of the best is pricey, though, so Labor Day weekend is an ideal time to pick one up. Deals on our favorite brands include $200 off select Dyson models and up to 30 percent off a wet-dry Tineco, so decide which best suits your cleaning needs (and budget), below.


To effectively tackle those lint-filled, hard-to-reach cracks and crevices, spring for editor-favorite Dyson. Snag the V8 (our go-to) or V11 through September 10 for $100 off. You could quickly suck up any pesky fur balls with the pet hair–collecting Dyson Ball Animal 2 Total Clean, too, which is $200 off.

Tineco’s sleek vacuum designs epitomize the “work smarter, not harder” approach to cleaning. Its Floor One and iFloor lines of wet-dry vacuums let you tackle two tasks in one. Assistant editor Raven McMillan was impressed by the S5 she tested, noting its maneuverability, thorough baseboard cleaning skills, and overall power, which allowed her to breeze through cleaning all 1,900 square feet of her parents’ home in approximately 30 minutes. Take note: Two models from these lines—the S5 Steam Cleaner and the iFloor Breeze—are on sale for Labor Day.

A floor cleaner that leaves no specks behind? We’re all about it. Some of Bissell’s most popular items are on sale, including the brand’s SpinWave Pet Robot Vacuum. We found the low-profile design mastered underneath-the-couch cleaning with ease, and loved the suctioning skills on flat-weave rugs—pet hair, dust, and debris were no match for it. Another top pick from the Bissell bunch? Its Bagless Canister Vacuum, a light and already affordable option that’s effortless to move around the house.

Even after more than 100 years of history, Hoover remains a top choice for vacuum cleaners.

We love a hands-free vacuum that does all the dirty work and then some. Among LDW deals, we’re eyeing iRobot’s self-charging, Wi-Fi-compatible Roomba j7, which we found ideal for soft surfaces and rugs in testing. Use its mapping function to chart out dirty spots you want it to tackle first, queue the “easy housework” playlist, and kick back while it cleans.

If a sweet bundle deal has been on your radar, scour Roborock’s site. We’re extremely intrigued by its eighth-anniversary offerings, one of which includes a free wet-dry vacuum with the purchase of a vibrating mop; you’ll save more than $500. Its S6, our overall pick among robot vacuums we tested, is on sale as well.

Among the canister vacuums we’ve tested, Shark’s bagless Vertex Canister model walked (or rolled) away with the prize for “best bells and whistles.” Why? The setup was easy, it only weighs 9 pounds, the wand flexes so you can effortlessly get to those tough-to-reach spots, and there’s an LED smart display on the handle. It’s on sale this LDW, as well as the brand’s Lift Away DLX cleaner, at The Home Depot.
