My Husband Selected Our New Vacuum

Was this against my better judgment? Probably. Only time will tell I guess. I've been going back and forth on the decision. I was between two vacs. The Eureka commerical grade vacuum and and the Hoover Platinum Upright my hubby liked. Both use bags. After much research I found that bags are better, unless you can afford a Dyson (I wish we could!).

We went with the Hoover Chris picked because it has a 6 year warranty. It had better last 6 yrs! If it doesn't I'm going with a commercial vacuum next time. It was on sale, we got free 2 day shipping and we payed only $74 for it! How? We used Amazon's buy back program and sold back a bunch of old DVDs and textbooks for credit. It's a great program because you don't have to pay for shipping the items to them. Here's a video of the vacuum we got... 
If it doesn't last/work I guess I'll have to blame Chris ;)

  1. I'd love to hear your review of it because I will be in the market for a new vac in a year or so. Right now, we have a hand-me-down that works just fine, but I know that once we have our own place (not a rental), I'll be more concerned with maintaining the quality in the carpets, etc.

  2. I think it retails for around $225 (click on the link in the post for pricing on amazon), so we saved a lot. So far I'm really loving it! It's soooo lightweight and can vacuum at 180 degrees so it makes vacuuming under beds and chairs a breeze. So far I'm pleased. I just hope it has a long life span.

  5. Marjorie, how do I find out about that Buy Back Program? I shop on Amazon a lot, so that could be huge for us.

  6. They only buy back books and DVDs. If you have one to be sold back find it on amazon and there should be an opinion that says "sell back."
