It's not long until Black Friday, the annual sales event that sees big savings on household products. From mattresses to microwaves, smart speakers to slow cookers, you can expect discounts across a range of items for your home. In particular shoppers are always keen to keep an eye out for those 'big ticket' items that usually cost more, and previous years have proved lucrative for those wanting a new vacuum cleaner.
Whether you're in the market for something that makes your life that little bit easier (who doesn't want a little robot friend that does it all?) or you're starting to suspect your Hoover is on the blink and want to make the most of the savings while you can, the November sales are a great time to bag yourself a bargain vacuum cleaner.
Here are the Black Friday vacuum cleaner deals you can expect in 2021.

What vacuum cleaner should I buy?
Vacuum cleaners are an essential bit of household kit and it's vital you get the right one for you to make cleaning easier and less frustrating. Here are some things you should consider when choosing which vacuum cleaner to buy:
- Floor type: Think about the type of floors you need to use the vacuum on. Are they carpeted or wood/laminate? As most houses contain both, the majority of vacuums cater to both, but it's always worth double checking.
- Ease of use and manoeuvrability: No-one wants to add stress to the already dull task of cleaning. Choose an electronic that will be simple to move around the house without cords getting in the way and that will also be ideal for use on the stairs. Many people also choose a robot vacuum for ultimate ease.
- Pets: If you have a dog or cat, you'll probably know the pain of pet hair getting everywhere. Look for a vacuum cleaner that picks them up easily.
- Type of vacuum: Do you want to go for a cordless, cylinder or robot vacuum? Consider what you need it for and also the attachments you require.
- Maintenance: There are a few extra things to look for in a vacuum cleaner past its primary function. If it's cordless, take a look at how long you can use it for without charging, and how long it takes to reach full power. Do you want a bagless vacuum cleaner too to make disposal cheaper?
What is the cheapest vacuum cleaner?
Our top pick for a budget vacuum cleaner is the Hoover 500 3-in-1 Cordless Vacuum. Currently priced at £169 on Amazon (£61 off of the RRP), we loved its versatility for working on different surfaces, plus its integrated tools to keep everything neat and tidy.
What is the best cordless vacuum cleaner?
We've spent extensive time researching the best vacuum cleaners on the market - the ones loved by Mumsnet users. Our favourite cordless vacuum cleaner is the Dyson V11 Absolute. We loved its power and efficiency, and how it worked just as well on carpets as it did hard floors. Read our full review here.
If you prefer a robot vacuum cleaner, our top choice is the iRobot Roomba 966. It may be pricey, but this nifty bit of kit is worth the cost for a great cleaner that takes the hard work out of housework. See our full iRobot review here for more.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is a big shopping sale that happens every year in November. It's originally from America but has become a major shopping event in the UK too, especially thanks to the timing which makes it a good opportunity to grab a pre-Christmas bargain.
It's not just for Christmas shopping though as retailers slash prices across a range of products including more expensive household items, making November an ideal time to make a purchase on things like vacuum cleaners - also great if you're wanting to make sure your house is all ready to receive guests over the festive period.
When is Black Friday 2021?
This year Black Friday falls on Friday 26 November, as it always follows the Thanksgiving Thursday.
Don't wait until the day to start saving though - as Black Friday has grown in popularity in the UK, so too have the deals and you can start finding discounts as early as the beginning of the month. Our team of bargain hunters will be doing the hard work for you and sourcing the best deals across the web on a range of products so don't miss out.
When is Cyber Monday 2021?
Cyber Monday is on 29th November this year, but you can expect to see savings also continuing the weekend after Black Friday up until Cyber Monday.
The difference between the two events is that Cyber Monday was originally focused solely on online savings (hence the 'cyber' name), and Black Friday also included in store deals too, but with the prevalence of internet shopping you will see deals online throughout November, and not just exclusively on Cyber Monday.
What were the best Black Friday vacuum cleaner deals in 2020?
