• Dyson is known far and wide for its popular cordless stick vacuums, but there’s another similar vacuum that we like even more.
  • It’s called the Bissell ICONpet cordless vacuum and it retails for $350, which is already hundreds of dollars less than comparable Dyson vacuum cleaners.
  • Despite its already-competitive price, Amazon has slashed the ICONpet to just $199, matching this model’s all-time lowest price.

I had been a Dyson users for years, and I still think the company makes some of the best and most powerful cordless vacuums on the planet. If you’re married to the Dyson brand, you’ll find a great deal right now on Amazon that slashes $200 off the Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal, which is one of the best models the company has ever made. But if you’re willing to try something new, we think you’re going to be pleasantly surprised at how good the competition — and you’ll be even more shocked at how much money you can save.

The Bissell ICONpet cordless vacuum is one of the best cordless vacuum cleaners I’ve ever tested, and I won’t be going back to Dyson anytime soon. This model is quieter and better with pet hair than comparable Dyson models, and it also has better battery life and a smarter design. It’s so easy to empty, but one of my favorite things is the LED lighting on the bottom so you can actually see everything that needs to be vacuumed up. You won’t believe how much you miss without it!

Bissell’s ICONpet cordless stick vacuum is outstanding and it’s worth every penny at $350, but it’s on sale right now for $199. That matches an all-time low price and it’s hundreds less than a comparable Dyson.

Here are some key details from Bissell’s website:

BISSELL pet parent engineers designed our ICONpet Cordless Vacuum for homes with pets. When it comes to cleaning up after our furry friends, their hair can get everywhere. That’s why we made this vacuum cordless. It has a 22v lithium-ion battery and a High-Powered Digital Motor, so you get a faster and easier way to vacuum your entire home and car. Forget about that annoying hair wrapping around the brush roll that can happen with other cordless vacs.

ICONpet Cordless Vacuum is equipped with BISSELL’s innovative Tangle-Free Brush Roll, so no hair wrap is left on the brush. It can lay flat while in use, so it cleans under couches and beds. Plus, the remarkably bright LED lights on the foot help you see pet hair and other debris that’s easy to miss in the dark. Unfortunately, not all cordless vacuums can also be used as hand vacs, fortunately for you, ICONpet Cordless can!

It also works as a high-reach hand vacuum. You’re able to clean pet hair, dirt and other debris with the included specialized pet tools. ICONpet Cordless has multi-surface capabilities, meaning it can be used as a hardwood floor cleaner and a carpet or area rug vacuum cleaner.

No matter what kind of surface you decide to vacuum, maintaining this cordless vacuum is easy with features like the Mess Free Empty Dirt Tank with CleanSlide Technology that lets you control debris as you discard it.
