Some deals really suck.

Is this deal for me?

This refurbished Dyson Ball Animal upright vacuum cleaner is down to $199 from Woot on Amazon. The street price for the refurb is $282, and this is its lowest price ever. This deal is part of Amazon's Gold Box deals of the day so it ends when the day does.

New versions of this vacuum sell for around $410 but are hard to find as well.

The Dyson Ball Animal has since been replaced by the Dyson Ball Animal 2, but the changes from one to the other are going to be incremental at best and the Animal 2 costs twice as much as this deal.

Features include:

  • Ball™ technology. Steers easily into difficult places
  • Self-adjusting cleaner head for all floor types; can perform on carpet and hard floor as well as creviced hard floor
  • Tools included: Tangle Free Turbine Tool for removing pet hair from furniture, multi-angle tool, stair tool, and combination tool
  • Bagless with HEPA filtration
  • Instant release wand for high reach cleaning

As a refurb, this comes with a 6-month Dyson warranty.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - Everyone wants a Dyson, but most of us aren't part of the 1% either. This is a great way to get some powerful Dyson tech in your home without taking out a loan to do so.
  • Things to know before you buy! - This is a discontinued model, but the newest model is twice as much as this deal price.

See at Amazon

Happy thrifting!
