To maintain a clean and tidy home, nothing is more essential than a good vacuum. The only problem? Vacuums can be expensive, and the more affordable options sometimes just aren’t reliable. That’s why finding a vacuum that is affordable and gets the job done is not just rare, but basically a miracle! Luckily, we recently discovered the Eureka PowerSpeed Bagless Vacuum on Amazon, which checks off all the boxes, and more. With nearly 29,000 enthusiastic 5-star reviews, this workhorse proves that a vacuum can be powerful and long lasting without breaking the bank.

Eureka vacuums are known for their superb suction power at an affordable price. As a matter of fact, our executive lifestyle director recently tried one and was shocked by how thoroughly the vacuum cleaned her floors. Similarly, the Eureka NEU182A is designed for use by anyone, with five height adjustment settings and options to use the vacuum either upright or with the hose as a handheld attachment. Its smooth wheels ensure you can effortlessly glide the vacuum over a rug or carpet (no matter how high the pile), while protecting hardwood floors from scratches.

“This vacuum is so lightweight! I’m really glad this is not a hunk of a machine,” wrote a content reviewer, who also added that its suction power is incredibly strong.

This vacuum’s powerful motor head is over a foot wide to gather messes more quickly. That spilled bag of potato chips? Gone in a jiff! And if you’re looking to target a smaller area, like in between your couch cushions or those hard-to-reach crevices between your fridge and wall, this Eureka has you covered, too! It comes with three extra tool heads (a dusting brush, upholstery tool, and crevice tool) which all hook onto the vacuum for easy storage.

To top it off, the vacuum has a washable filter and extra-large dust cup to save you trips to the waste bin. Our only remaining question: What’s not to love?
