You might be skeptical of refurbished vacuums on Amazon: Doesn’t refurbished mean used? Can you really be sure of what you’re getting? As we discovered when we did a deep dive into certified refurbished Vitamixes, though, refurbished items are indeed used, but the “certified” bit means they go through a standardized process to ensure that your product arrives in good working order — it might have a scuff or other cosmetic damage, but it definitely works just fine. (The process varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but each has its own refurbishing process.) This Dyson vacuum (which costs $509 brand-new) comes with all of its accessories and has a six-month Dyson warranty against defects if you’re worried, too. TL;DR: You can get a perfectly functional (if not pristine) Dyson for $230 right now.
