Sainsbury's is currently selling the Dyson V8 Animal for £200 in-store while stock lasts. Comes with 90 day Money Back Guarantee (''Try any Dyson cord-free at home for 90 days, and if you are not satisfied, return it for a full refund of the purchase price'')


Product details as per the Dyson website:

Designed specifically for homes with pets, the Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is a powerful and versatile option for keeping your house clean.

Featuring a direct-drive cleaner head and powered by the Dyson digital motor V8, this model generates impressive suction and picks up pet hair and ground in-dirt across both carpets and hard floors with ease.

A highly efficient post-motor filter captures pet allergens inside the machine and expels cleaner air than the air you breathe, ensuring a more hospitable environment for you and your family.

Thanks to a revolutionary, lightweight cord-free format, the V8 also transforms for easy cleaning up high, while the handheld mode is ideal for cleaning the sofa, stairs, or in the car – with an extra tool for removing pet hair from smaller spaces.

New battery chemistry delivers up to 40 minutes* of fade-free suction to clean even more of your home on a single charge, while a new hygienic bin ejector drives out trapped dust and debris in single action, so there’s no need to touch the dirt.

Other features:

  • The mini motorised tool removes ground-in dirt and pet hair from upholstery and confined spaces such as car footwells
  • The powerful max mode offers higher suction for more difficult tasks.
  • Key components like the motor and battery are positioned near the hand to shift the centre of gravity making the cleaning end of the vacuum much lighter
  • Many rival products have a charger you have to unravel and plug in, but the V8 has a charging station instead
  • The air flow paths through the machine have been reworked, the post-motor filter has been redesigned and acoustic felt and closed cell foam has been inserted inside the machine to reduce noise


*25 minutes with motorised head attached.

Here is my verdict:Miele C3 Ecoline (Grey):• Power: There is also a boost setting which boosts the power for around 30 seconds before reducing to the next stage down. I’ve probably used that feature twice. It’s just not necessary as it is already very powerful. Trailing a cable round the house is a bit annoying, however, it does have a long cable so unplugging and re-plugging is minimised. 4/5• Bagged: Yes, you have to buy bags to put in the vac. We have a 3-bedroom house and two dogs. We are on our third bag since January 2018 and we vac most days. It is cleaner and the vacuum internals are pristine. We also use a scented air freshener so it smells clean whilst you are vacuuming. It’s just a cleaner way to vac which will make your vacuum last longer. 5/5• Value: It was £160 at the time of purchase and we bought a cylinder brush head as an extra for the dogs (the Miele Cat & Dog has one included - I know because my brother bought the C&D which made me buy our Miele). I think it was about £30. German engineering at good value. 5/5If it breaks I will buy the same vac again no questions asked.Dyson V8 Animal:• Power: You have to pull and hold the power trigger which, after vacuuming the first room in the house, will become strenuous on your finger. This may have been changed on newer models but I’m not sure. Battery power cannot come close to direct mains power. You will also have to charge the battery and eventually swap it when the battery goes beyond it’s useful life. 2/5• Bagless: Not having to buy bags has it’s advantages. It also fills the filters etc. up with dirt and debris which will speed up the death of your vacuum. My mum has always had Dysons because they are bagless. She has also had A LOT of Dysons because they fail due to overheating or just generally being filled with crap off the floor. Bagged vacuum cleaners tend to last longer as the bag acts as the filter too. 2/5• Value: All Dysons are WAY overpriced. I mean, their hairdryer costs £300. I rest my case. 1/5


I really don't get why people say Dyson's are over priced. Here's an example. Take a Golf TSI R, £34k 0 to 60 4.9 seconds. Nissan GTR over £100k 0-60 3.2 seconds. One is 3 times the price of the other. Both get you from A to B, Both function as a car. So why the price difference. Nissan is pushing engineering forward and using everything regardless of hardware cost, the other making the most out of what they have but keeping to a cost.

Dyson, is pushing engineering forward. Hardware costs to Dyson are also very high, this results in a higher consumer price point. Have you ever seen a tear down of the Dyson Hairdryer, the thing is incredible. They spent millions reducing the audible frequencies the motor makes, then they introduced a de-ironiser for the air.

I get it though, most people don't care about how you get your hair dry or any of the features the Dyson has and that's fine but that doesn't mean that its over priced at £300. It does mean its expensive!
I would suspect Dyson actually has a lower mark up then other manufacturers. I'd guess around the 150% to 200% mark, but you can sure bet that cheaper brands that are using cheaper parts are operating with the same mark up if not more.

Battery lasts for about 2-3 years before you need to replace - ~£50-60 for third party brands.
We have had the AirRam V3 (main and handheld) and few VAX etc before and they do not compare.

If you're only on your 3rd bag after 18 months of vacuuming most days with dogs in the house, I'd question how much the vacuum is actually picking up.

Really? I tried the new Dyson cordless in store because I've got both the 32v Pro and 40v vax cordless machines and I really thought the suction was rubbish in comparison. Granted, vax corded machines are cheaply made and I found you had to clean the silly filters every 5 mins but honestly, I much prefer the vax cordless.

This is a great vaccum. I have stopped using corded one completely. It does the job and does it well
I own a Miele, Dyson V6 and a Shark upright. The Dyson was my best friend until I bought a Roborock. Oh my goodness he is just amazing. The Shark is Used once a week upstairs and the Miele downstairs. The V6 has been abandoned!
Bargain!, great kit, paid a hella lot more , best vacuum i've owned.
Great price..shame they're all gone...and even more of a shame that I'm skint anyway

I have the Vax blade 2 (40v), both Dysons the V6 & V8 don’t come anywhere near it
V6 worked fine for 6 months then battery developed a fault which Dyson sent another free of charge. 3 weeks later, no suction so buy new filter and still nothing. Keep your money and buy a shark, my friends swear by theirs
The Dyson cordless vacuums suck!
Better ones out there
Any in Milton Keynes?

I've not tried the cordless 32v 40v vax versions my experience was with corded ones, but bear in mind alot of vacuum companies engineer sounds into the machines now to make it sound like it's doing its job. I don't think Dyson does that (because it's so quiet).

I was tempted by the new generations of shark etc but since its also for the Mrs it would be harder to convince that cheaper = better for cleaning chores

You should try them. With the 40v you can feel it pulling on the carpet, it's very good. Prior to the vax blades, I was Dyson Dyson Dyson. I've even still got the dc75 cinetic big ball and that hardly comes out now ( I have a bit of an issue with collecting vacuums )
Is it new trend, buying ice cream with Dyson?
Great bit of kit this, and dyson customer service has been great for me.

Unless I'm wrong the Miele is corded, in which case your review is comparing chalk with cheese.

We have the v6 and I saw this post
and tempted to upgrade to the v8. We've had the v6 coming on 3 years and use it every day. We have a corded vacuum but that rarely comes out. Yes corded are far more powerful and better for those few times a year you want to have a crazy deep clean but for your day to day cleaning cordless wins hands down and gives a very good clean.

Did you get them to scan it on the till and proceed to payment screen to get the final price?
From the receipt given by the OP it shows the item will go through at £470 initially but a £270 discount comes off afterwards.

It happens a lot when I'm buying non food items that are on offer using their smartshop. The promotional price appears only at the payment point.

See I had the Vax 32v and hated it I swapped to a V8 and then changed the battery to a larger capacity one.
I did find the Vax was better on carpet but I have mostly all hard floors where I found it useless.

I really don't get why people say Dyson's are over priced. Here's an example. Take a Golf TSI R, £34k 0 to 60 4.9 seconds. Nissan GTR over £100k 0-60 3.2 seconds. One is 3 times the price of the other. Both get you from A to B, Both function as a car. So why the price difference.

Compared to the competition though, a Nissan GTR is overpriced these days. Its truly sad because when it was first introduced around 50/60k it was absolutely phenomenal value for money.
Popped into a few local stores. Even though they dont stock this the staff at those stores couldn't believe the reduced price. It was not until they called one of the other larger stores that they confirmed the price was correct. Unfortunately stock has flown out of the door due to the price. If you get one, fair play. Great price.
Great deal, I’ve had mine for well over a year and battery still works well. It’s daily, at least twice and manages to cope with hair from two labs and a cat plus all the other dust and crap kids are dragging in
no longer use my upright Dyson anymore. That lives in the teenagers room!

I'd guess around the 150% to 200% mark, but you can sure bet that cheaper brands that are using cheaper parts are operating with the same mark up if not more.


Good point. I suppose there’s no other brand even trying to replicate Dyson’s hairdryer. There are, however, other bagless vacuums which are more effective than the Dyson at a fraction of the price, therefore making Dyson vacuums overpriced.
Going back to the hairdryer, I genuinely do not believe their hairdryer improves the quality of your hair once dry compared to other hairdryers. I think it’s a false conclusion though, as most people will dry their hair on the hottest and most powerful setting for speed, whereas the Dyson intentionally does not reach the power and heat of it’s competitors, therefore leaving your hair more conditioned once dry.

Got it in Bangor store for 200 - discount at checkout


I'm going to go up to the West Belfast store this evening and try. They have stock so hopefully there will be one left.

Compared to the competition though, a Nissan GTR is overpriced these days. …Compared to the competition though, a Nissan GTR is overpriced these days. Its truly sad because when it was first introduced around 50/60k it was absolutely phenomenal value for money.


I get the point you're trying to make with the GTR realsed at 50-60k . However The Golf R32, IE the equivalent to the new Golf R range, was £22,485. So its swings and round abouts.

Anyway my analogy might be rubbish but the point is yes Dyson products are expensive but they are not overpriced. You are basically paying 100% more for that new 15% that has never been explored in consumer devices. IE the motor Tech, the cylinder set up, the De-Ironiser (That one had been used once or twice before), Best in class Hepa filtering (Shark are also pretty good at this too), Highest on paper suction of any cordless (translating that into real world suction is another test/issue), torque drive motor head, Not to mention the genius of no heat styling using "Coanda" effect to control the hair.

Yes £449 for a styling product is ludicrous to some and I wouldn't be paying it, but its game changing. This tech in 3 years time will start making its way into cheaper products; someone has to be first.

This all costs money. Simple rules if you don't care about the final 15% stay out the game for it and leave it alone. When you get to the greatest, newest engineering Prices are always inflated to recoup the RnD costs.
Amazing price, would any one price match this?
