If you've ever used the holidays as an excuse to treat yourself while you shop for friends and family, you're not alone. But if you're not excited about the prospect of having to balance deals shopping with Thanksgiving travel, eBay is here with a great limited-time deal. They're ending their 11 days of "first-minute" deals, and saved the best for last: a manufacturer-refurbished Dyson vac for up to 66 percent less than a new model.
The Dyson V7 Animal + Cordless HEPA Vacuum normally retails for around $250 or more, depending on the retailer, but today you can pick up a certified refurbished model for just $169.
Not all cordless vacuums are created equal, and the Dyson V7 boasts some of the most powerful suction and up to 30 minutes of fade-free vacuuming time. This unit was specifically designed with pet-owners in mind, but if you suffer from household allergies or just want to improve the air quality in your living space, the V7 is a great choice. Once dirt or other particles enter the vacuum, the HEPA filter captures allergens and recirculates cleaner air into your environment. Think of it as a vacuum and an air filter in one. The cleaner head's stiff nylon bristles spin powerfully and can drive deep into carpet pile to remove ground-in dirt — great for upcoming winter boot season.
The V7 can be configured with four included accessories, offering a ton of versatility. Remove the cleaner head and use the wand to reach high-hanging cobwebs or dust bunnies along baseboards and in between furniture. The soft dusting brush gently removes annoying dust from bookshelves and other flat surfaces. And thanks to the HEPA filter, tiny dust particles won't just settle onto another surface moments later. The mini motorized head transforms the V7 into a handheld vacuum for cleaning upholstery or stairs. Perhaps our favorite, the crevice tool is perfect for getting into hard-to-reach spots, say, around kitchen appliances and other tight spots. And because it's cord-free, otherwise neglected areas of your home like your car or garage are easily accessible.
A note about refurbished models: The D7 is being sold direct from Dyson, meaning that all units have been tested to meet like-new performance and are backed by Dyson's warranty. Some machines may have minor cosmetic blemishes such as scratches or surface imperfections that prevent them from being sold at full-price, however they don't affect performance.
In addition to the cordless vac, you can also get the supersonic hairdryer, famously sold for $400, refurbished for $220. Several other refurbished Dyson vacuums, as well as air purifiers, are also for sale refurbished directly from Dyson. See all deals here.
