The Dyson V11 Animal is among the best cordless vacuums you can buy if you have to deal with pet hair. And with a retail price of $600, it’s also among the most expensive. Thankfully, it’s not the only great option out there and we recently tested a Dyson rival that’s so good, it frankly shocked us. It’s the new Bissell ICONpet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner and it handles dirt and pet hair just as well as the best Dyson vacuums we’ve ever tested. On top of that, Bissell donates $25 to its foundation that helps rescued animals find homes for each vacuum purchased. How awesome is that?

This model is lightweight, it has great battery life, and it’s far less expensive than a comparable Dyson — especially while it’s $100 off at Amazon!
