So it IS definitely the Animal version, right? Not, say, the Asthma & Allergy version? (blue vs. purple, different attachment sets)

soooo whats with the description?
huh

we have a dyson… and have never had problems with it.

got a dc14 from woot awhile ago and we love it… Granted its not the most exciting woot, but if you need a vacuum this is hads down the best bang for your buck.

It’s an inside joke that only the ~15000 of us who follow @woot on Twitter understand.

I could explain it to you, but then you’d have to buy three of these.

Just had a breakup and she got my DC07. It sux really well. Good vacuum too! Any real thoughts on this one?
Good deal?

I work at Bed, Bath and Beyond as a sales floor associate.

The DC-17 (The Animal) is by far a great vacuum. Attachments are designed to get the pet hair off of furniture. Plus the vacuums maintain their suction between hard floor surfaces, and carpet very well.

Normally at our store it sells for $499.99. Customers usually wait for a 20% coupon before purchasing one.

This is one hell of a deal. Normally with a 5-year warranty. If this is refurbished, and if you have any issues with this vacuum (at anytime), take it back to any BBB store for store credit (and profit to buy cooler stuff). I’m not kidding, just say that it isn’t working as well as you wanted, and we take it back.

Edit:
Blue = Allergy
Purple = Animal

Only difference between the two are the attachments that come with the vacuum. Vacuum are identical (except for color). Attachments to any DC 10 series (10 through 19) are interchangeable.

Obviously you are not Dr. Chandra.

I already purchased 4 vacuums from woot. I’m starting to run out of excuses to buy anymore. Maybe if you offer a vacuum for the garage (canister type that mounts on the wall) I can buy one more.

bought one of these about a year ago and I love it!

With all the stats given, it’s curious that they don’t tell you how much this thing weighs. Curious, indeed. Especially to those of us who live on more than one level.

Dyson says 20.56 pounds. A bit on the heavy side as far as uprights go.

cheaper DC18

Use the coupon code BZRT1 for an extra 10% off and get it for $188.

Have it from a woot a while ago. It said it was refurbished, but it was clearly brand new. It’s held up well in a house with a lot of wall to wall carpeting and 2 golden retrievers and a cat. Not thrilled with the design of the wand, a bit awkward to use- but OK. Would highly recommend- esp. at this price.

Arizonans know their dust.

Interesting description.
