Black Friday Came Early!

It’s my favorite time of year (beside the temperature).  The holidays, friends, family, food, gifts & of course: shopping.  The hype is upon us.  Most of the flyers have been circulated already.  There’s backlash against the stores opening on Thanksgiving day.  And then there are the stores that have deals all week long – so we don’t even need to anticipate what Friday will bring.

Take today’s deal:
The Dyson V6 Absolute Cordless Vacuum at 60% off!

I’ve been eyeing the Dyson Cordless Vacuums for a few months now, contemplating if they would be worth the high price tag.  I’m all about reading reviews, so when a good friend I trust told me how much she loves her cordless Dyson, I was officially convinced it was a necessary addition in my life.

I know that all Dyson products are great – I love my Dyson Upright and my Dyson Hot/Cool Fan.  But, when it comes to cordless Dyson’s (perfect for quick clean-ups, the staircase, upholstery & the car) there are 4  models to choose from, and I could not make up my mind on which model was best (mainly because there was a $300 difference between the ‘most basic’ model and the ‘best’ model).  I knew the quality of the basic model would still be great, but I knew the convenient features of the best model would definitely be even better.

I am so glad I took so much time to contemplate because this week, the prices have dropped significantly – so significantly that I purchased the newest, “most expensive” model with the most features, for LESS than the original price of the ‘most basic’ model!!

 

These are all of the stores that currently have this model on sale, but keep reading to find out which one had the BEST deal:

Bed, Bath and Beyond currently has their Dyson Manufacture event, and the $599 Model is marked down to $449.  That includes free shipping, but, you can NOT use a 20% coupon on this item.  I kept looking.

The normal HSN price is $599 – currently marked down to $449.  That also includes free shipping.  HSN recently sent me a 20% off any item code, but it unfortunately EXCLUDES Dyson.  I kept looking.
(On a side note: If you wanted to pay for the vacuum over time, HSN would be the way to go.  They are currently offering FLEX PAY of $112.49 for 4 months, which is completely interest-free!)

The normal price for the same model is a little higher at Macy’s.  Somehow, they got away with jacking up the “Original” price to $699, and “discounting” it to $599.  They are currently selling the vacuum for $449 as well.  But guess what: their savings pass EXCLUDES Dyson.
… I kept looking.

Kohl’s, like Macy’s jacked up the price of the same model to $679.99, and like all of the other stores, it was marked down to $449.99.  So why would I choose Kohl’s? I really don’t like Kohl’s.  But, they do NOT exclude Dyson in their coupons!!!! They currently have a 15% off promo that I could use.  I also decided to open a Kohl’s Credit Card, which saved me another 30% off!

Not only did I get 15+30% off, I also got $15 Kohl’s Cash back for every $50 spent.  That’s $75 Kohl’s Cash that I can use between November 30th and December 6th on anything I want at Kohl’s!
I also scanned my “Yes2You” reward card too, which earns me a $5 reward for every 100 points (1 point per dollar).
So, Ding, ding, ding – we have a winner – Kohl’s had the best deal BY FAR and I might actually like this store now (for household products)!

 

I feel bad for anyone who paid $649.99+tax for this same exact vacuum last week at Kohl’s – Because I just paid $284.74 INCLUDING TAX – a 60% savings!

  

I grabbed the one and only box they had at our store so I’m not sure any will be available by Friday – act fast!!  I’ll also add, Dyson products rarely go on sale, these prices will creep right back up very soon – and currently, Kohl’s is the only store I’m aware of that still allows you to use coupons on them – hopefully they don’t catch on!

Besides the long lines, crowds and excitement, I can’t wait to see what else Black Friday brings this year!
