If you’re looking for a new vacuum, you’re likely to find sales no matter which type you want. And we tend to see some of the deepest discounts in August, thanks in part to back-to-school deals and early Labor Day sales. We’re already seeing some great prices, and expect more as the month goes on.

We take into consideration a variety of factors when highlighting vacuum sales. This includes a model’s performance in CR’s tests, its predicted reliability based on data from our member surveys, and the size of the discount compared with the original list price and the current “street price” (i.e., the typical cost of the product).

Below, you’ll find the best deals on canister vacuums plus handheld, stick, robotic, and upright models that perform well in CR’s tests. Some are better for handling pet hair, while others may be just right for high-pile carpet or bare floors. Look for the right combination of features that fits your needs at a price that fits your budget.

Miele has a sterling reputation for its plug-in vacuums, and the Triflex HX1 is its first cordless model. It earns top-notch scores on almost all our tests. The coolest part, though, is that you can put its parts together in two different styles: A modern stick-type setup, with the weight at the top and a long shaft that can reach into cramped areas, or a more traditional upright configuration, with better balance but a bulkier middle.

Why it’s a good deal: This brand doesn’t go on sale often, so take advantage of this discount before it’s gone.

The Eufy RoboVac G30 Edge has many of the same strengths as the more basic Eufy 11S—including decent cleaning performance, quiet operation, and nimble navigation. The difference is that it navigates in orderly, back-and-forth rows, which means it’s less likely to accidentally miss sections of your home or get lost in big spaces. CR has not tested the G30, but we have tested its near-identical sibling, the G30 Edge. (The only difference is that the Edge comes with do-not-cross strips, which are awkward to use anyway, at least by today’s bot-vac standards.)

Why it’s a good deal: This model has been on sale for closer to $230, but the new sale price is only $20 more than what we saw on Prime Day, and much better than what we’ve seen more recently.

The Tineco Pure One S11 cleans impressively in all our major tests and has many features to boot. An LED panel shows how much battery life you have left as well as the suction level, which varies when you switch from bare floors to carpet. A sensor detects the amount of debris and adapts the suction power accordingly. If you’re so inclined, you can connect to a Tineco app that indicates cleaning performance, such as battery life, on your smartphone. In CR’s tests, it ran for 22 minutes per charge when using both the high and low settings.

Why it’s a good deal: If you need a vacuum now, this is a good discount for this model. However, we saw it sell for a lot less during Prime Day, so if you can wait, you may be able to get it cheaper in the next big sale.

The Samsung Jetbot+ with Clean Station works well in homes of any size. While it had some trouble dealing with hazards like rug fringe in our navigation test, its laser-assisted (Lidar) nav system allows it to quickly and thoroughly clean a room, bumping into fewer walls and furniture legs than robotic vacuums with other navigation systems. It can learn your floor plan and clean specific rooms on command, and comes with a handy self-emptying charging dock. Its cleaning performance is strong across the board, too—on carpets, bare floors, with pet hair, and even up against edges.

Why it’s a good deal: This sale price is only $28 more than the best we’ve seen this year.

The affordable Eufy RoboVac 11S is nimble, making it a great option for cleaning a few rooms at a time, but it does struggle to thoroughly clean large areas. One of the shortest and lightest robots that CR has tested, the RoboVac 11S drives under furniture and wiggles away from hazards like power cords and carpet fringe better than most robots we’ve tested. It’s also quiet, and the cleaning performance is respectable for its price. Eufy makes a handful of robots very similar to the 11S, but this is the most basic model, and one of the few robotic vacuums still available that doesn’t connect to the internet.

Why it’s a good deal: This is a great, low-cost option if you aren’t 100 percent sure a robot vacuum would be right for your home.

The Eufy RoboVac 11S Max, a slight variation on the super-popular Eufy 11S above, is an agile, quiet robot with surprisingly capable cleaning ability for its price. It’s also one of the few bots left that doesn’t connect to the internet (so that means no smart-home integrations). The semi-random navigation means it’s not ideal for bigger homes—it’ll get lost and skip cleaning huge chunks of your space—but it’ll work well in smaller spaces, a few rooms at a time.

Why it’s a good deal: The on-page coupon takes a whopping $90 off the price tag, which matches the best price we’ve ever seen for this model.

A basic robotic vacuum that will work well in small spaces, the Eufy 30C is much the same as the 11S and 11S Max (nimble, quiet, good at cleaning, but not very effective in larger spaces). But this model has the option to connect to WiFi so you can start and stop the robot from your phone, set a cleaning schedule, and integrate it with smart home routines, if you choose.

Why it’s a good deal: With the added smart functionality, this robotic vacuum offers a little more bang for your buck than Eufy’s other similar models.

Very similar to Shark’s Navigator NV352, the pricier Shark Rotator Professional Lift-Away NV501 has better balance and is easier to steer. It also comes with a handful of helpful extra tools, including a headlight built into the cleaning head, plus an extra-wide upholstery cleaning tool to save time.

Why it’s a good deal: This is the typical sale price, but we saw it drop to $170 for Prime Day so it may get cheaper closer to Labor Day.

iRobot Roomba i4+

An upgraded version of the Roomba i2 (and essentially identical to the Roomba i3+), this Roomba i4+ deal will be available throughout the Prime Day event. The i4+ can learn the layout of one level of your home, after which you can use a companion app on your phone to command it to clean specific rooms, while skipping others. It also comes with a dock that automatically empties the robot’s dust bin into a vacuum bag, which can hold one to two months’ worth of debris.

Why it’s a good deal: The sale price was $50 higher last week, so this is a great opportunity to buy. However, during Prime Day it sold for $400, so you may want to hold off and see if it gets cheaper for Labor Day.
