The best vacuum cleaner deals this May

1. Eufy Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner (was £183; now £157)

Now available in white, this Eufy model is a great cordless option that doesn't break the bank thanks to this deal. In the box, you'll get a range of accessories including a floor brush head, an extension hose and a wall mount to store it once you're done. There's also a long and 2-in-1 crevice tool and a mini-motorised brush to get dust out of the tightest of spaces. All this runs on a vacuum that will keep going for 40-minutes which is more than enough for most people.

2. Shark Classic Upright Vacuum Cleaner (was £250; now £129)

For those who love Shark vacuums, this is a great option now selling for a stellar price. This vac provides a top-clean with more suction power than any other upright vacuum when it was tested in Dec 2020. At the press of a button, you can switch between carpet and hard floor modes so the whole house gets a top clean. It is corded, which could be a problem for some, but given it has Lift-Away technology so you can go fully portabl, reaching the hardest to reach spots shouldn't pose a problem. Plus, you retain the pure power of a Shark corded vacuum.

3. Shark Lightweight 2-in-1 Cordless Vacuum (was £181; now £169)

If you're often struggling to carry your vacuum up flights of stairs, this ultra-lightweight vacuum from Shark might be your saviour. With two attachments and two power modes (floor and handheld) packed into a compact device, everyday cleans are much simpler than using a cumbersome traditional vac. Unfortunately, there's only a 16-minute charge - or enough time to clean three rooms well if you get a move on. Still, unlike other brands, Shark will assure you of a top-quality clean. Averaging £181 on Amazon, this isn't the lowest we've ever seen it go but still makes for a solid deal.

4. Shark WV200UK Pet Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner (Was £130; now £100)

Our full review of the Shark WV200UK praised this model for its lightness and even weight distribution. This well-balanced handheld vacuum is perfectly suited to cleaning cars, cob-webbed ceilings and hard to reach corners around the house – and doesn’t leave you with sore and tired arms at the end of it. This Shark Vacuum comes with a range of attachments and is suitable for multiple surfaces – though it is particularly adept at dealing with pet hair and upholstery. At this deal price, picking up this highly portable vacuum cleaner is a no-brainer.

5. Henry HVX 200-11 Xtra Bagged Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner (Was £170; now £120)

Numatic’s anthropomorphic vacuum cleaner got five stars in our full Henry Hoover review – and it wasn't just because of his adorable face, though we can’t say it didn’t endear us to him a little. The base Henry model is a national favourite due to its long flexible hose, high dirt-carrying capacity and budget-friendly price.

This equally sturdy and reliable Xtra model improves on the base Henry with additional cleaning heads and a larger carrying capacity. Its only downside, an increased price compared to the base model, is now mitigated by this huge reduction – so get this deal before it's gone.

6. Miele Triflex HX1 Pro (was £643; now £420)

With 120 minute run-time, over two batteries, you'll be cleaning your home in no time when using this Miele Triflex HX1 Pro. As a cordless vacuum with three power modes, you should be able to get all the dust and dirt around your home – especially when using either the Crevice Nozzle, Dusting Brush or Upholstery Nozzle. The Bagless 0.5L capacity dust canister makes throwing it all out easy, too. At this price, the Triflex HX1 is a fantastic buy.

7. Dyson V15 Detect Animal Cordless Vacuum (was £600; now £530)

This vacuum has it all. There's a High Torque cleaner suitable for just about any floor type, a crevice nozzle to get in all the tightest of places, and a hair screw tool for tidying up any loose ends (without having to worry about tangling). All this with some of the strongest suction power around for a cordless.

In fact, it's basically the same as Dyson V15 Detect Absolute which we raved about in our full-length review last year. The only difference is that the Detect Animal forgoes a 'Laser Slim Fluffy' attachment designed for cleaning hard floors. Plus, the biggest bug-bear we had with the V15 Detect Absolute was the high price, so - while we've seen this one go lower - £70 off (and a free Dyson Floor Dock) makes a real difference in price.
