UPDATE: Nov. 15, 2021 12:45 p.m. ET Early Black Friday Dyson deals are hiding as of this writing, but deals on a refurbished upright vac (or Dyson Corrale hair straightener) are possible.
Robot vacuums are often in the spotlight for Black Friday. Their automated convenience is undeniably sweet, but for some, a Roomba just can’t compare to the rush of manual vacuuming.
Best deals on Dyson vacuums
If you have your eye on a Dyson, Black Friday 2021 should be a good time to shop for one, especially if you’re planning on (literally) cord-cutting. Dyson has rearranged its cordless stick vacuum lineup since last Black Friday, so even those upgrading from an older Dyson vacuum could find a discount on a fancier model.
The best Black Friday deals for 2021, all in one place
If you see a deal like that, move quickly. Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and Dyson’s website have proved to be the best places to find Dyson Black Friday deals so far, but the deals aren’t lasting long. Best Buy quietly dropped the Dyson Outsize to its Black Friday price for a few days in the first week of November, while Walmart and Target dangled fleeting deals on two affordable V8 models. Unexpectedly, Dyson’s website itself came to the rescue for a while with a $150 discount on the Outsize Absolute+ (which could pop back up on Dyson’s Black Friday page at any moment). Amazon will undoubtedly step up its Dyson game as we creep closer to Nov. 26.
What are the different types of Dyson vacuums?
Perhaps harder than tracking down the Dysons on sale for Black Friday is confirming which models are even still in circulation. This determines which discounts are actually legit and which prices have been slashed for the past year because the vacuum is an old model.
You’re probably shopping for a Dyson cordless vacuum. The cordless stick vacuums are Dyson’s most expansive range, offering base stick vacuums around the $250 to $300 price point and leveling up to powerhouses around the $700 to $850 price point. The V8 and Outsize models are the most likely to see groundbreaking Black Friday sales. For more help, check out our comparison guide to Dyson’s current stick, ball, canister, and handheld vacs.
If your cleaning powers need a boost before you gather with guests for Thanksgiving, a few refurbished Dyson stick vacuums are already on sale. (There’s also this pretty big list of early robot vacuum deals.) Discounts on new models are always on the verge of dropping, and we’ll update this list as soon as we hear about them.
Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright (refurbished) — $397.99
Why we like it
Dyson’s hefty upright vacuums were the it vacuum to have before cordless stick vacuums rose in popularity. The Dyson Ball Animal Upright 2 is a heavy-duty pick that may feel a little sturdier than a stick vacuum, and for a refurb price under $400, it offers suction power comparable to $700 and $800 Dyson cordless models.
