“Cleanliness is next to godliness,” is what your grandmother may have said to you a decade or three ago. Now that you own or rent your own home, you know how good it feels to have a house that’s sparkling clean and fresh-smelling. Whether your home is carpeted, you have hard floors, or you just have plush upholstery and curtains to keep clean, your vacuum cleaner is your friend when it comes to freshening up your home.
Of course, we like saving money. That’s why you’re reading this blog post, but the cheapest vacuum cleaner may not be the best choice. Have you ever had a machine that made more noise than it lifted dirt? So, we went shopping on Amazon and found 10 reasonably priced vacuum cleaners that you’ll love using. Check it out!

2. Black & Decker Cordless Lithium Hand Vacuum
If you’re cleaning upholstery or just want to give your car a do-over without the expense of a professional valet service, this little hand vacuum cleaner will be a joy to own. We like the fact that it holds its charge for up to 18 months thanks to the Lithium battery, and consumers are giving it rave reviews for its suction power, previously a failing of many hand vacuum cleaners. One reviewer even sucks pests off garden plant using this little beauty.
3. Bissell Vacuum with OnePass Corded
One of the problems with most vacuum cleaners is that they only suck up superficial dirt. But this model with its rotating brushes gives your carpet a proper deep cleaning. We found many reviews from consumers who said they’d followed a vacuuming with a regular machine with the Bissel, and still found they’d sucked up lots of dirt. That’s what we like about it. Embedded dirt is one of the yuk things about carpets, and this little beauty seems to have the solution.
4. iRobot Roomba Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
Yes! It has arrived! The robotic cleaner that you leave to wonder around your floors all on its own, happily cleaning while you do something else. Nearly everyone who has tried this cute cleaning robot has been thrilled to bits. It copes well with pet hair and reduces dust in the house by keeping surfaces dust-free. However, as some reviewers pointed out, you do need to keep an eye on it from time to time since it can get stuck in places and may struggle with unusual spills.
5. Dirt Devil Vacuum Cleaner Vibe 3-in-1 Corded Bagless Stick & Handheld Vacuum Cleaner
The first thing that struck us about this lightweight vacuum cleaner was the very affordable price. The second was just how much people loved the little devil. Pet mess, a problem for many older vacuum cleaners, doesn’t present an issue for the lightweight yet powerful vacuum, and you can use it with brushes for carpeted surfaces or with brushes retracted on hard floors. Clip off the handle, and you have a hand-held cleaner for upholstery and other raised surfaces you might otherwise have struggled with.
6. VonHaus 600W 2-in-1 Corded Upright Stick & Handheld Vacuum Cleaner
If you have carpets and pets then you’ll be following the recommendation of quite a few pet owners when you choose this vacuum. One of the best things about it is that you can turn it into hand vacuum for surfaces in seconds, and the sucking power is spectacular! One caveat, though: it may scratch hard floors during cleaning, so stick to carpets, curtains, countertops and upholstery.
7. Black+Decker BDH2000PL MAX Lithium Pivot Vacuum
Yes, it’s another hand-held vacuum cleaner, but it’s well worth taking a closer look at. One of the problems many people experience is that their cleaning equipment won’t fit into tight corners and odd angles. And when that happens, they have to go back and clean by hand. But the pivoting nozzle of this advanced power tool from a trusted brand gets into all the corners that would otherwise have proved difficult to clean properly. We’d definitely consider having this machine for finer work and another for the bigger areas.
8. Dirt Devil Scorpion Quick Flip Corded Bagless Handheld Vacuum
This compact appliance looks red hot great! While it wouldn’t be big enough to clean out a whole home, it’s great for minor cleanups, cars and tight corners. Cordless vacuums are admittedly more portable, but in this case, you don’t have to worry about limited battery life or reduced suction power. It empties and cleans out easily, but it’s a good idea to grab a few extra filters when you buy it, since these get dirty quite quickly thanks to the extra cleaning power.
9. Armor All 2.5 Gallon 2 Peak HP Utility Wet/Dry Vacuum
Would you like to get your car’s interior really clean? Thinking of shampooing the upholstery? Well, this vacuum cleaner was specifically designed for cleaning auto interiors and can handle moth wet and dry conditions. You will need to plug it in to the mains, but the extra cleaning power will make it well worth rolling out the extension cord to get the job done. It’s handy too. The six-foot hose means you only have to handle the nozzle and you can get that nozzle just about anywhere in your car.
Here’s another option for those who like the idea of totally hands-off vacuuming. The big advantage is the HEPA-type filter that prevents allergens from getting into the air. If anyone in your family is allergic to dust or animal hair, the Eufy should go a long way towards rectifying the problem. The quiet operation and super cleaning capabilities are the two things that most reviewers rave about. They can’t believe how much dirt it can find in houses that look reasonably clean on the surface.
