Ah, a marketing trick as old as they come—pricing something just shy of a nice round number to create the impression of a lower cost.
“It’s less than $100!”
Well at least let us point out that while we’re squeaking in just under that hundred-dollar mark, there are similar vacuums out there where they actually attempted the same thing at…like…the $700 level.
$99.99 is one thing, but holy crap we can’t imagine sitting here with a straight face trying to make you feel good about scoring a bargain at ONLY $699.99. It’s not $700, after all!
Regardless, this isn’t a $700 vacuum. Which is good. Because unless you’re cleaning the lint out of the instrument panels of the space station, nobody needs a $700 vacuum.
You do need a GOOD vacuum, though, and this is that.
It’s powerful, lightweight, and has a super easy bagless canister system. There are attachments to help you clean up to ten feet in the air and it will be just as happy on thick carpet as bare hardwood.
And just like you shouldn’t pay more than $500 for a vacuum, you probably wouldn’t normally have a great experience paying much less than $100 either.
Crap. Maybe we should have gone with $100.01.
