We're all still slightly in shock about the whole Sainsbury's vacuum cleaner fiasco. And if you were one of the unlucky ones queuing outside your local branch from 4:00am in a bid to bag a bargain, you probably are, too. 

Not heard the news? More pressing that Boris's latest Brexit deal, or Extinction Rebellion's early morning disruption to the DLR, Sainbury's customers were outraged to discover that rumours relating to some seriously discounted Dyson and GTech vacuum cleaners were, in fact, somewhat incorrect.

The anonymous leak to discount site Hotukdeals.com spread like wildfire across the internet, caused hundreds of bargain hunting thrill seekers to set their alarms as early as 4:00am and queue outside their local Sainsbury's branch in an attempt to get their hands on one of the coveted Dyson V6 Trigger vacuum cleaners, down from £149.99 to £50. Unfortunately, however, many of them left empty handed as it was revealed the the contents of the deal leak were somewhat misinformed – only 'selected stores' were offering the discount.

So, in a bid to spread some cheer and alleviate that dull ache that we all get when we've missed out on a really cracking bargain, we thought we'd bring you some of the best vacuum deals that are actually available right now. Yup, they're right when they say that not all superheroes wear capes, some just come yielding super discounted vacuum cleaners. Enjoy...
