The Best Affordable Vacuums That Budgets Can Buy

·10 min read

Buying an affordable vacuum can feel a little bit like buying wine. Yes, one goes well with pasta and one cleans your floors, but hear us out. The prices can range from suspiciously low to insanely high, and it can be hard to know where the sweet spot is if you're not ready to shell out for a top-of-the-line Dyson. Luckily, there are plenty of mid-range and even cheap vacuum options that can keep your floors clean. But, as with wine, no one vacuum fits all needs.

Ok, we may be stretching that metaphor a bit far — but think about it: just like certain wines go better with certain foods, certain vacuums work better for certain types of people. Everything from your preferred cleaning style to your home's size or setup and floor type can have an impact on the best vacuum you should buy. Sound stressful? Don't worry, we've done the hard work for you. Ahead, 16 of the best affordable vacuums that will clean your floors without blowing your [wine] budget.

Welcome to Hype Machine, our hit-list of the top reviewed products across the web — according to a crowd of die-hard shoppers. Call this your 4-star & up only club, with entry granted by our devoted-to-the-goods shop editors.

I was expecting just a simple vacuum that I can use around the house for simple jobs that I don't want to lug out our full upright vacuum. Well in the span of a week, it has become our main go-to vacuum for all things. I was surprised how easily it assembled right out of the box and the ease with which it maneuvers with the long floor attachment. I haven't installed the wall mount but it seems simple enough to do. I appreciate the thoughtfulness of having it as part of the set. The unit is very lightweight but has very strong suction power compared to our small hand-held dust devil vacuum. Not sure how it compares to the more expensive Dyson products but at a fraction of the price, I see no reason to experiment when this does all that I would ever expect from a vacuum." – <em>Roman M, Amazon reviewer</em><br><br><em>Shop <strong><a href="https://amzn.to/39Kq1hG" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Tocmoc" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Tocmoc</a></strong></em><br><br><strong>Tocmoc</strong> Cordless Vacuum, $, available at <a href="https://amzn.to/33E6YlA" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Amazon" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Amazon</a>

Clean Fiends Say: "This device is awesome. I was expecting just a simple vacuum that I can use around the house for simple jobs that I don't want to lug out our full upright vacuum. Well in the span of a week, it has become our main go-to vacuum for all things.
