If you're in the market for a new vacuum, this Dyson sale is all the reason you need to splurge on a new one. And if you weren't considering investing in a new vacuum before, fair warning: a deal this good is hard to pass up. On Amazon, the Dyson V7 Motorhead Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is currently on sale for just $249, a $150 savings from its original $399 price tag. Plus, it's Amazon Prime-eligible, so shipping is free and fast, letting you catch up on your spring cleaning routine ASAP. 

While it's an incredible deal, you may still be wondering what makes a vacuum worth spending $249. For one, it's among Amazon's best-selling vacuums, and is currently listed as the 29th most popular home product on the site. Although this Black+Decker Cordless Hand Vacuum ($49; beats the Dyson with the 10th spot, if you're looking for a full-size stick vacuum, this Dyson model wins as the crowd favorite. 

We have some guesses as to what makes this model so popular. It's cordless, lightweight, and it's engineered to pick up ground-in dirt and dust from both hardwood floors and carpeting, so it's versatile enough to use all over the house—especially when there's no cord tethering you to an outlet. Plus, it has a 30-minute runtime so you won't have to stop mid-cleaning spree to recharge. And if you're wavering between buying a stick vacuum or a handheld vacuum, the debate is over: this model easily transforms into a handheld for quick cleanups. When you add on the crevice tool attachment, it can get into hard-to-reach areas, like the back of kitchen cabinets or down around the baseboards.

And if you're worried about the dreaded process of empty the dust bin, Dyson has made the process more hygienic, so you never have to touch the dust or dirt. Any tool that helps make the spring cleaning process a little less "eww"-inducing is a win in our book.
