Mixed reviews on the Eureka vacuum here:

But you can’t beat the price from Woot! I feel sorry for the mothers who will get a “vacuum cleaner” for Christmas this year. :lol:

Joe from wishes you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!


Woot - maybe I am actually first. I really don’t care, but I’m normally not up for the product switch.

Eureka Self-Propelled HEPA Bagless Vacuum
It will even suck up whatever portion of your Thanksgiving feast that bounced
off your drunk Uncle Harry’s engorged belly and landed under your table
$79.99 + $5 Shipping and Handling

The Eureka r5197a WhirlWind upright bagless vacuum really sucks. It sucks so hard because it has one motor devoted to just sucking and nothing else. The other motor propels the vacuum cleaner because let’s face it, vacuuming is hard work. Do you really want to push the vacuum around the house? Let the Eureka do it for you - it even has a handle that communicates with the motor effortlessly propelling the vacuum forwards or backwards. Yes, that’s right - both forward and backwards. It’s so simple that even Paris Hilton could use it. (not that she’s ever used one, or that she could even spell vacuum)

The Whirlwind also eliminates the need for disposable bags as it is equipped with and easy-to-empty cyclonic dust cup. The sealed HEPA triple filtration system eliminates allergans, dust and dander that can cause allergy problems all without side-effects like drowsiness, fatigue and dry mouth in adults, and drowsiness, headache, sore throat and stomach pain in children. Vacuuming for longer than 4 hours, though rare, requires immediate medical attention
