A Kmart branded vacuum cleaner selling for only $99 is better than a $1000 Dyson say newly converted fans.
According to online groups, the 1200W Upright Vacuum really sucks and is on par, if not better, than high-end models.
"For those who know me I'm a clean freak and vac twice a day with my Dyson stick and then once a week with the upright Dyson," one mum said, according to kidspot.com.au.
"The carpets always look clean, but I vacuumed yesterday with the upright Dyson then I did it straight away with the new Kmart Vac... OMG I felt horrified but so satisfied at the same time!"
One woman, who owns a cleaning business, said she is considering "upgrading" to the Kmart vacuum.
Another mum said she had bought the Kmart vacuum as a temporary replacement after her $2000 one broke but decided she might make it her mainstay.
"Brought the Kmart vacuum I've seen everyone love on! Fair to say I was shocked and grossed out after I used it today!" she said.
According to the fans, the only downside is that the cord is a bit short, and that the vacuum is a little heavy to manoeuvre. But in light of the sweet sweet savings, people are happy to overlook the minor discrepancies.
