Found 2nd Jan 2009Made hot 2nd Jan 2009
Just saw this in John Lewis, Bristol. Couldn't quite believe the price so I took a photo! Wasn't maked as a clearance item so should be plenty of stock available.

Might be useful for anyone not able to find one at Asda.

This price is not available online.

If you ring Bristol (0117 9591100) they will send you one direct from the distribution centre for free (wherever you live). Thanks PeteW!

Atlernatively you can ask your local John Lewis to pricematch the Bristol branch (thanks bossyboots). It seems they are usually offering free delivery when you do this too!

I know, but I accidentally wrote Tesco in the OP (now corrected). Still an amazing deal though.

It is as you will def get the 5 year guarantee on this through JL.

I am going to get this from JL as they will price match with the Bristol store if not the same in the Glasgow store :thumbsup:

Do JL price match online?

They don't match other online retailers:
"Our online prices are the same as in John Lewis shops, although occasionally you may find a lower price in one of our shops if they're matching the price of a local competitor, or online if we have a johnlewis.com special offer.

Because of our 'Never knowingly undersold' policy, if our shops are matching prices nationally, then our online prices will go down (and up) accordingly. The prices in our catalogues are the same as in our shops at the time of going to press, but may be subject to change during the life of a catalogue."


Whether they would pricematch their own stores isn't clear. You could give it a go but I'd be surprised if they did it because Asda's deal isn't available online either.

Thanks for the reply, I might give the Nottingham store a ring and see if they'll reserve one for me

Great find BTW :thumbsup:

They 100% DO pricematch their other stores.

these are noisy

So are chainsaws, but boy, they do one hell of a job cutting trees down, and Dyson vacuum cleaners do quite some job with a floor without being nearly as loud.

I have a soft headed broom somewhere, now that's dead quiet, but it is lousy - it takes ages and leaves loads of dust :-(

I have a Miele vacuum cleaner, it's excellent and it's much quieter and more reliable than a Dyson.

Well I find they develop an ear piercing high pitched whine after a year or two.

Miele vacuums can be bought from about £120 through to £375. They're not really much more expensive than a Dyson and far easier on the ears. Worth it imo, but I hate excessive noise.

What's wrong with it?

My local store is calling bristol store now fingers crossed hopefully :thumbsup:

have just bought one over the phone from JL in bristol who are also happy to send it out to me.
The good news= is available to collect on monday
The bad news= will be a strait refund as just read it properly andrealised is only suitable for carpet DOH !
either that or if anyone else wants it then speak now

mccririck;7401807

What's wrong with it?



I don't think it has good enough suction, even with a new bag in it the suction indicator says the bag is full! Plus bags are expensive, no such issue with a Dyson

N1 Leicester store just matched it Have some rep :thumbsup:

I need it for tiles and wooden floors too, surely it'll be fine?

It isn't ideal for hard floors I'm afraid because it doesn't have the facility to turn the brushbar off like some of the more expensive models.

I thought all Dyson's have a 5 year warranty? I gt mine from currys, went online to register it and they replied with the details for what to do if (when) it breaks on me.

I LOVE John Lewis! Just rang the Oxford Street store and within 5 minutes they'd check with the Bristol Store and had offered me free delivery to South East London.

Excellent - thanks op

Excellent deal, Just got one, have some well deserved rep :):thumbsup:

Great find. I managed to get one from Asda and I'm really pleased with it. Heat added.

Got Comet to match Asda yesterday as Asda were shut!

These do work on hard floors - albeit a little noisier than one designed for all floors - but a dc14 all floors is 100 quid more.

Ours did a good job on wodden floors toady in picking up glitter from where the tree was!:santa:

Apparently they are showing over 900 of these across the partnership and are mostly £149 but after a call to my local branch they said best thing was to get Bristol deliver it for free as they won't match a local event!

Our Asda hasn't had any for a while, so cheers for the heads up.

I think you will find that they are, you just get them repaired for free. Which? magazine always used to refuse to give Dysons a best buy because of their unreliability. They have changed their mind now because of the warranty, they don't say if they have improved though. I have a Dyson and it cleans very well, and I like not having to use bags, but I've lost count of the number of times I've had to repair it. I always said I wouldn't buy another but I might reconsider now they have a 5 year warranty.

The newer ones are more reliable (hence the 5 year guarantee!). Also, I noticed in the store that the DC25 is a Which? Best Buy.

Which review:

The DC14 range may be one of Dyson's older ranges but this DC14 Origin … The DC14 range may be one of Dyson's older ranges but this DC14 Origin model remains a strong Best Buy.This cleaner did outstandingly well in our tests, leaving carpet, laminate and wooden floors spotless.It's worth noting, though, that Dyson recommends that this vacuum cleaner isn't suitable for delicate floors because you can't turn off the brush bar and it's possible that scratches could occur. So, although its cleaning capabilities are excellent, you might want to consider an alternative if your home has wooden floors.Nevertheless, it's great for carpeted homes and a real winner for pet owners, gobbling up the pet hair supremely well.The DC14 Origin is the most basic in this bagless upright range, lacking some of the accessories provided with others in the series. Its less good than the All Floors at retaining allergens though and both machines are noisy.Pros: excellent cleaning resultsCons: noisy and poor at retaining allergens

Brilliant deal if you missed the Asda one

Ideally cylinder types are best if you have predominantly hard floors.

Isn't there the potential for the beater bar to hit the floor & mark it though?

nihcaj;7403213

Well there isnt really an equivalent, Miele do loads of different cylinder models and the uprights are more expensive. Every single Miele has a Which magazine Best Buy rating though, best make by far.

I went into John Lewis in Bristol Mall and they did not have one instock however they said they has a load in the warehouse and I ordered one to pick up next Tuesday. A great deal. Thanks

So the principle you follow is, let's all buy the best brand regardless of price, and regardless of long term costs too.

Rarely a cost effective strategy, any more than the common option of buying the cheapest product, expecting that to give the best value possible.

"Which" does not impress me, as have said in other threads, it's methods are strange, and while I admit they often do make good recommendations, they are often bizarre too. One of many sources to consider when buying, certainly not the only one!
