This one's for people like me and got excited by the Dyson V8 Animal vacuum cleaner deals a few weeks' ago, but then got buyer's remorse when the Black Friday deals came out.
I really wanted the Soft Roller (Fluffy) head that comes with the Absolute but didn't come with my Animal (that's the only difference between the two models). I figured it'd be a simple case of ordering the part from Dyson over the phone. I called a few times, explaining myself differently each time, but they flat-out refused to sell it to me. Apparently it's "not fair" (their words) to the people who paid for the Absolute!
Then today I simply explained that I bought my machine only 2 weeks' ago and I really wished I could upgrade it. Simple! By indicating that I'd just bought it and it was within the 30-day returns window, they were more willing to help. I selected to buy the head for $129. I could have returned the whole unit and got an Absolute. It would have saved me about $10 given the current Black Friday pricing (which expires today) but it would have been an extra hassle.
Edit: it is possible that this is only available to people who bought directly from Dyson. This was almost mandatory to get the OzBargain deal above (price match).
