Best Vacuum for the Money 2011

Here at our main goal is simple – to help you find the best vacuum cleaner so you don’t waste your money. For most people, they can’t afford spending $1200 on a vacuum cleaner, which is why we put together our “Best Vacuum for the Money list”.

However, don’t confused best vacuums for the money for best cheap vacuums – with this list we are not just taking the vacuums under $150-$200. We are looking at both price AND quality/functionality, with the goal to help you find the vacuum cleaner that gives you the biggest bang for your buck $$:

Best Vacuum Cleaner for the Money 2011:

Eureka Airspeed Gold Bagless Vacuum

The Eureka is truly a great value – you get power, a HEPA filter, and a great price @ just $129.99. Eureka even claims that it picks up more than the Dyson. While our test didn’t get the same results, it still showed the Eureka to be a great vacuum. The downside: you do have to replace one of the filters, which will add a little bit to the overall cost – but hey, you can but about 15 years worth of filters before you get to the cost of a Dyson.

Shark Navigator Upright Bagless

The shark is powerful AND cheap – at less than $150 it’s 1/3 of the price of the Dyson DC25, but tested impressively. The only drawback (there always is something you give up in order to save money) is the filter – it’s not a HEPA. But if you want power in a small size, this is the one for you.

Dyson DC25 All Floors Vacuum

Wait, didn’t we just say the Shark and the Eureka were better than the expensive Dyson??? Yes, but that doesn’t mean the Dyson isn’t still a great deal. You do pay between $429 – $499, but you actually get a lot more: best in class suction, Dyson ball technology, and a certified, lifetime HEPA filter, and a 5-year warranty.

Again, remember that in determining best vacuum cleaners for the money we look at two things: Price AND functionality/effectiveness. As you can see, if you are willing to spend $400+ then you can find a vacuum cleaner that really does it all. However, if you are on a budget (or just don’t want to spend that much on a vacuum cleaner) we understand, and feel very confident that you will be extremely happy with any of the sub $200 vacuums listed above.
