At NerdWallet, we strive to help you make financial decisions with confidence. To do this, many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. However, this doesn’t influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

Don’t miss out on all of NerdWallet’s highly anticipated 2016 Black Friday ad leaks this season. Check back regularly for updates on the best holiday deals from your favorite retailers. Black Friday is Nov. 25.

While your holiday shopping list has your eyes peeled for deals on TVs, tablets and toys, retailers are also throwing home appliances such as Dyson vacuums into the mix of doorbuster savings. Purchasing a vacuum may not be as exciting as taking home a new video game console, but most of the brand’s models can be pricey, so consider these deep Black Friday Dyson discounts a gift.

Best Black Friday Dyson deals 2016

The lightweight Dyson V6 stick vacuum and the compact Ball Animal bagless vacuum were the models featured in most Black Friday deals. Most savings didn’t surpass $200, but at almost half off, it would be harder to find a better discount, especially for a Dyson.

Starting on Nov. 20, Dyson’s manufacturer website begins announcing its Black Friday daily deals. Sign up for the brand’s email newsletter to receive updates on exclusive offers available starting on Thanksgiving and lasting through Cyber Monday.

In the meantime, here are some of Dyson deals at other retailers:

Dyson V6 stick vacuum (various models)

Dyson Ball bagless upright vacuum (various models)

If the current Dyson models are still too pricey, some stores sell older editions. Macy’s Black Friday event offers the Dyson DC39 Ball multifloor for $249.99 (regularly $579.99), and Target is selling the Dyson Ball Origin upright vacuum for $199.99 (regularly $349.99).

Stores such as Bed Bath & Beyond offer Dyson deals past the Thanksgiving weekend, but most specials are good only through Black Friday. Read the details in the store ads to confirm when these deals are available and for how long.

If your generous gift list includes a Dyson, make sure to mind your credit card balance. In the 2015 holiday season, 44% of Americans incurred debt and took about two months to pay it off. If you’re part of this crowd, make sure to avoid paying interest with the right credit card. NerdWallet’s list of best credit cards for holiday shopping includes cards with 0% interest periods that may last from 9 to 21 months. There are plenty of reasons to stress over the holidays; don’t let credit card interest be one of them.

Best Black Friday Dyson deals 2015

In 2015, many major retailers cleaned house with storewide discounts on home appliances, including Dyson vacuums. Shoppers saw up to 35% off select models, including popular models such as the Dyson V6 and Animal vacuums. Some Dyson deals were available for only a limited time, so it was helpful to comb store ads for the full details.

Some of the best deals from last year:

Dyson V6 stick vacuum

The Dyson V6 stick vacuum’s lightweight body packs heavy-duty cleaning power. This vacuum knows no bounds, as it isn’t tethered to a power outlet and users can clean various surfaces and areas with few problems. Some stores that were offering the slimmest prices on this model:

  • Shopko: $249.99 (regularly $399.99).
  • Macy’s: $249.99 (but only until 1 p.m. on Black Friday; then the price goes to $299.99. The regular price is $499.99).
  • Target: $249.99 (regularly $399.99).
  • Best Buy: $249.99 (regularly $399.99).

Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal vacuum

Pet owners will appreciate the Dyson Animal’s fur-sucking power. The vacuum’s motor, brush head and attachments are designed to pull out hair and dander trapped in rugs, furniture and floors. Here are a few stores that were offering the most hair-raising deals on the Dyson Animal:  

  • Sam’s Club: $339.99 (regularly $509.99).
  • Costco: $389.99 (regularly $599.99).
  • Best Buy: $399.99 (regularly $599.99).
  • Target: $399.99 (regularly $599.99).
  • Macy’s: $399.99 before 1 p.m. on Black Friday ($499.99 after 1 p.m. Regularly $599.99).

Buy used, save more

Another way to save on a Dyson vacuum is to purchase one refurbished. There were a few stores such as Big Lots (Dyson upright vacuum for $175) and Overstock (Dyson upright vacuum for $199.99) that offered Black Friday deals last year on used vacuums, with some of these specials offering a Dyson machine for up to half of the original price.
