Just because something is a deal doesn’t mean it’s good. That turns out to be the case for one of the deals of the day at Amazon. I’m talking about the Hoover Upright Bagless vacuum model UH72400. With a list price of about $190, the $79 one day price seems like a steal.
But get this! I checked out the model in my Consumer Reports Guide and while it gets an okay rating (points off for tool airflow and carpet cleaning performance), Hoover bagless model UH70120 retailing for $130 got a higher rating (69 compared to 55) thanks to better tool airflow and carpet cleaning! It also was the second highest rated of all bagless vacuums and got a “best buy” check mark. Yes, it’s a little heftier (4 lbs heavier/17lbs) but what’s a few pounds? Best of all, it’s also $79 at Amazon.
So…if you’re in the market for a vacuum cleaner, whaddya gonna buy?
