Discount retailer Aldi is selling the Dyson V6 Trigger handheld vacuum for a bargain price, as part of its regular series of ‘Special Buy’ offers on non-food products.
Regularly priced at an eye-watering £198, Aldi is offering this premium handheld vacuum for just £99. Available since late December, you can buy it either in-store and online, while stocks last.
Dyson claims that the V6 Trigger has three times as much suction as any other handheld vacuum in use. It weighs a relatively light 1.2kg, and the dust container holds roughly half a litre before it needs emptying. It comes with a combination tool and a crevice tool, making it a potentially handy gadget for tackling tricky corners, cars, sofas and other surfaces around the house.
Could this Dyson make you look forward to vacuuming the floor of your car? Before you rush to Aldi, read on to see whether it’s a good deal and check our independent Dyson V6 Trigger review to find out if it’s worth buying.
Aldi Dyson V6 offer – is it a good deal?
The average price of the Dyson V6 over the past six months has been around £140, but we’ve spotted it for anything from £120 to £219. So, while £99 is still fairly pricey for a handheld vacuum, it’s good value for this particular Dyson.
If you’ve had your eye on it, or are tempted by the price, you’ll probably need to be quick, as Aldi offers tend to fly off the shelves – though it is also currently available at this price in a couple of other retailers, including at Argos and on Dyson.co.uk.
However, even with a hefty discount, this compact Dyson vacuum is still at the expensive end of the spectrum. If you’re on a budget, we’ve found Best Buy handheld vacuum cleaners for around half this price. You might not get the status of being a Dyson owner, but you’ll still get an excellent handheld vacuum and around 25 minutes of cleaning time.
Prices for handheld vacuums range from as little as £15 to nearly £200, but we’ve found that you don’t always get what you pay for. We’ve tested some pricey models that are dreadful at picking up common household spills or zapping dust around the home. Check our handheld vacuum cleaner reviews to find out which models are worth buying, and the ones to avoid.
Handheld or cordless – what type of vacuum is right for you?
Handheld vacuum cleaners are handy for quick clean-ups around the home, but you might find that a cordless stick vacuum cleaner, which has an extension tube and floor-cleaning accessory, is a better investment.
Handheld, dustbuster-type vacuum cleaners are small and light. They don’t claim to replace all the functions of a standard vacuum cleaner, and they are not suitable for cleaning large floor areas, but the best models will help you clean awkward corners and clear up spillages in a flash. They tend to have a shorter battery life than cordless stick vacuums, as they are designed for smaller jobs.
Cordless vacuums are lightweight, battery-powered, upright stick-shaped vacuum cleaners. Most include handheld cleaning accessories for stairs, upholstery, crevices, and even your car. If you’re tired of lugging around a big vacuum cleaner, going cordless could make cleaning hassle-free again. Our cordless vacuum cleaner reviews reveal the models that will leave your home spotless with minimum effort.
