Like most people out there, I have been a big fan of Dyson vacuums for as long as I can remember. Actually, I should probably say I had been a big fan of Dyson vacuums. I still marvel at how powerful Dyson’s motors are on its cordless stick vacuums, but I’ve dumped Dyson and I’m never going back. Why? It’s because I found something so much better, and for far less money than the $600 or $700 you’ll pay for a brand new Dyson.

The Bissell ICONpet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is definitely my new favorite vacuum. In fact, it might be my new favorite thing, period. I have a dog who sheds constantly and this cordless stick vacuum tears through pet hair like it’s nothing. Seriously, it’s crazy how my dog’s long hair never tangles in the brush roll in the intake like it always did with my Dyson.

Beyond performance, there are three more reasons to choose this model over a Dyson, and the first two are beyond simple: the battery life is awesome, and it has a light. You won’t believe all the dirt, dust, crumbs, and pet hair you miss when you use a vacuum without a bright LED light bar like the one on this vacuum. Second, it’s so much less expensive than a Dyson — especially today while it’s on sale at an all-time low of just $187.99 for one day only. This model retails for $350 and it’s worth every penny, so don’t miss this deal.
