Correct, but an additional 5%for non members.
Just Normal price then?

even Dyson have reduced it to lower than this

dyson.co.uk/v6-…OiQ
Just pulled the trigger.

Phoned Dyson direct. £199.98 and got the free, 3 piece tool-kit as per previous deals.

It may come down in price again later in the year but I want it now god damn it!!!
Can anyone tell me the difference between this and the animal version? Is it really just an additional head?
I've got one of these. Not massively impressed tbh. Suction is good, battery life is pretty poor, it's massively annoying when it goes flat in the middle of using it.
Just ordered it from Dyson they give you extra parts if you have a product already registered with them. I got a free tool kit plus you can pay over 24 months interest free.
Been waiting for this to drop under £200 and had some John Lewis vouchers so thanks for posting.
The battery stops me buying one of these, i wonder when the time will come where they have a decent battery worthy of cleaning a house
UTV!

I am also wondering this. Appears to be the additional head.....for £100!!! Or 33% of the total cost. Unsure whether to just get the V6. Only an English Bulldog I have so not hairs everywhere.
I've been looking closely for some time and I'm sure the animal just has the added mini motorised tool which you could probably buy for around £40. It's only the total clean/absolute which have the increased drive on the rotating bush bar but then looking, that reduces battery life from 20 to 14 minutes. This does seem the best value overall.

Cheers Dave. I'm gonna get a V6 today. The old Dyson has had it!!
animal has the extra brush head and a wider standard head.

I've just bought the V6 from currys. Asked about the extras & yes wider head ~2cm? & the additional animal head. Very impressed so far compared to an old Dyson DC14
This is now showing as £299 on tesco
Had some vouchers for John Lewis for Christmas so just bought one of these for £199.95 from there. Thanks OP! :-) Maybe worth changing the thread title and link from Tesco to John Lewis though?

johnlewis.com/dys…573
Done !
Is there still a cashback thing going on if you exchange an old dyson?
can we not change the link to john lewis why does it go to tesco and a totally different price?
I have DC59 Animal and the battery is not an issue. We just tend to clean downstairs in one day and then upstairs the next day. Absolutely brilliant bit of kit and if it broke I'd buy another straight away.

Also got one of these, think its been well over a year now and we love it. I should preface this by saying we predominantly have hard flooring.

I think the tradeoff between portability/size/weight will only suit you if you adjust your cleaning habits. As an ad-hoc regular use device its great and thats how we prefer to operate our cleaning regime. Quick clean of the passage every day, quick clean of the lounge every day or two, spills/etc cleaned as and when they happen as is the rest of that room, clean of other rooms when you have a bit of time spare.

If on the other hand you stick to a scheduled whole house clean (depending on the size of the house) it may not be suitable. It's not just because of the battery, there's also the refuse compartment which is relatively small. The problem is to address those issues will add weight/bulk/impact ergonomics and so detract from what its currently perfect for (the ad hoc approach we use). Having said that my wife still uses it for the whole house clean as coupled with the ad-hoc approach the house is relatively clean to begin with so the battery lasts long enough.

NB: The only issue we really have is the rotating head needs cleaning more often then our conventional hoover (which we don't use anymore). It seems more prone to hair/fibres getting tangled up and has a few nooks where things can get stuck.

How do you go about getting the 3 free tools?
* Edit * Doh! spotted the "phoned Dyson" and did the same, turns out I had registered my DC07 back in 2003, one V6 and free tools on the way

The usable time from full charge would certainly put me off spending £200.
Mr Dyson, if you're reading these comments perhaps design a battery which can be removed and charged independently, like cordless drill batteries, at least you'd have a fully charged backup if you go flat halfway through a clean.

You get used to the battery use/charger times. I bought the total clean last year and would NOT be without it. I have 3 cats which it copes fantastically with. I also have a horrendously bad back... This device lets me clean everyday. Well worth the money.

​No but the prices are the same or better than trade in
Heat from me thanks OP!

Just to let others know I managed to get the free toolkit (worth £65 apparently) without owning a Dyson before. Hope this helps.
is there a comparison chart anywhere showing the difference between the models? I'm trying to work out the difference between the v6 standard and the v6 total clean - for £130 extra I can't seem to work out what the difference is?

a comparison matrix would be good!

For those looking at one, but are a little unsure, I can provide a little insight into them.

I've had mine for the last 6 months, and personally it was the best thing I bought for my new house. I find I don't mind using it often, since it's so light and easy to use - especially once it's been wall-mounted.

I use mine every day. Since on 'max' it'll last only about 8 minutes, it means I'm not vacuuming for ages each day. I do the following:
- Top floor & kitchen/hallway
- Middle floor & kitchen/hallway
- Stairs & kitchen/hallway

Keeps my house very clean and taking just a few minutes I do it when I get up in the morning. Also, you will need to empty it after each use - it gets full quick (and my house is not particularly dirty, it's pretty much new-build, no pets and no kids - although a messy lodger).

I've been impressed with it, with my only gripe really being that it doesn't seem to circulate very well in the cylinder - keeping the dust/dirt on one side... Very odd, but hasn't affected performance.

Hope that helps.

Edit: I have the 'Absolute', which comes with a larger standard head, better performance, and some useful stuff, so that's worth noting. Personally I couldn't be without the stairs attachment (called the 'mini tool' I think), but don't use the hard floor attachment - doesn't seem to be required. I'm pretty sure you could live without the larger head and better performance as well.

You have to remember that this cordless only runs while pressing the trigger so the short battery time goes a long way considering you can easily switch on and off when moving furniture and objects. We manage to do pretty much all of our 3 bed semi on one charge as its easier to manoeuvre especially without the cord and therefore quicker. However we often do downstairs one day and upstairs another day. Great but of kit
Just got mine from dyson direct with free tool kit for £199. Very straight forward transaction, getting delivered tomorrow.
Drumbo how? Did you call customer services?
Yeah just ring them direct, the number is on the website and say you have got an old dyson and could you have the free tool kit.
Just noticed that these are £199 in Argos as well plus you get the £10 off voucher back, so £189 total. But you don't get the toolkit.

Hope this helps someone, Madcow
Sorry just noticed the Argos reference in the op

Madcow
Just paid £163 from Very with their new 20% off promo code CPXM7.
I Went for the take 3 interest free option, is there any catch behind this?
