Dyson V10 Absolute+ $799.99 @ Costco (Membership Required)

690

Long time lurker, first time poster! Thought I'd give back to the community.

Now I know this isn't the cheapest and it doesn't come with the Dyson Dok and not everyone has a Costco membership but… This is a pretty good deal if you missed the boat, not sure if price may drop further as the V11 is out.

    Costco dont accept Amex as well, only visa so lower points earning if compared to buying from eBay or Amazon.

    Not a bad price, but I would say the Dok is great as it makes the attachments easily assessible, otherwise it all sits in a jumble pile probably never to be used. At least that's what happened with my original v3 years ago, never bothered changing the attachments…

      The V10 comes with a bag that has pockets for the attachments. You can carry it on you while vaccuuming, or hang it up on a 3M hook near where you keep the vac.

      You're right though. That is a problem with stick vacs. With a barrel vac there is usually compartments on the vac itself where you can store the tools.

        Yeah I didn’t bother opening the bag! I think it’s still a bit of a black hole in terms of not being able to see it all….

      What a gimmick, next the v12 with even more bells and whistles. They are sucking us in literally just like every new version of the iPhone or pc.

      I just purchased a V11 Absolute Pro. Great product but DO NOT pay full price as there is lots of fat in their RRP. For example, I paid less than $940 for the V11 Absolute Pro and you know they are still banking good coin at that price.

      •  

        Whereabouts did you get it at that price? Sounds like a great deal!

        •  

          Purchased on dyson.com.au

          I have not posted it as a deal as it's not available to the general public. It was via an employee benefits program (25% off deal) offered by my employer.

      •  

        Yeh where did you get it for so low? Can you attach a receipt?

      •  

        Very suspicious of this claim, the V11 Absolute Pro is the only model that is exclusive to Dyson's website, so you can't have bought it anywhere else within Australia. Dyson have yet to run any discount to regular consumers for V11's. They do price match third party sales, but since nobody else sells the Pro model there's nobody to match to. It costs $1249 so you're saying you got a 25% discount on an exclusive model when Dyson have no deals at all running currently? Are you a Dyson employee?

        For the V11 Absolute, which is sold third party, the best I've seen is 10% off on eBay via Good Guys or Bing Lee, although again Dyson will price match those deals. So 25% on the exclusive Absolute Pro seems flat out impossible this early on.

        EDIT: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/450830 - Based on this I'd guess OzDJ also has a Dyson Corporate account. So not exactly a valid comparison for the average buyer who will not be able to access that deal.

          Be as suspicious as you like, new user of 12 hours. You can guess/speculate as much as you like. Ignorance does not make you right.

          My V11 Absolute Pro was purchased from Dyson Australia through their public website with a promotional discount code provided by my employer. No - I don't work for Dyson, either. Do you, by chance?

          I stand everything I wrote in my post. People should NOT pay RRP as there is lots of margin in the asking price. Wait for the inevitable discounts and, even then, be prepared to haggle.

          And please take the time to re-read my post. At not time did I suggest that price point should be used for comparison purposes.

          •  

            @OzDJ_: If he got it via Corporate Program with the code, they are doing 25% off. so the price paid would be: $936.75

          •  

            @OzDJ_: Ignorance wouldn't make me right, but educated deduction sure did, since you were in fact a Dyson Corporate member as I guessed correctly. Suggesting that the 25% off RRP you got through that program is realistic for others is disingenuous at best. You should have just been up front about that instead of needing to be called out on it.

            And yes I am a new member, what of it? Doesn't make what I said any less accurate.

    I was the lucky to get this for $599 way back when the V10 was released with the eBay plus promo… Only good thing Ebay plus has done for me.

    •  

      Me too… Those were the good days…

      Welcome OP to the Dyson V10 :=)

    •  

      It cost them practically nothing to make, seems they were the lucky ones.

      •  

        Research and development, engineering, manufacturing, distribution and the rest of it. I’d say they would’ve made a significant capital investment.

  •  

    I bought v10 couple months ago from an eBay MYER 20% deal and received the Dok as bonus.
    With the bonus, $799 is a good deal.

    Anyone having issues with their Dyson V8?

    Almost 2 years in, battery doesn't even last 10 minutes on normal suction and less than a few minutes on max.

    Tried emailing dyson.. been a month and still no reply as I am still under warranty.

    Also have a friend who's V8 doesn't take charge anymore and can't get any support from Dyson!

      I'd give 'em a call. I had an issue with mine, called them and they walked me through it very quickly. My mum has had to return hers 3 times, and they have been very quick once she called them. Can't speak for their email support, but their phone support is very good.

      That's how long those batteries normally last, this is why they make then unreplacable. Don't be upset however, the v11 is available for sale.

      •  

        You can most definitely buy a new battery, and it's pretty easy to replace, so no need to fork out 1k on the latest thing.

        If you want, you can also build a replacement - I think they're only 18650 batteries anyway.

        But, I'm pretty sure Dyson will sell you one.

        If not, there's always Amazon with replacement parts.

        •  

          Yep you can definitely buy a new batt for about 100 dollars so not sure what the other person means

    •  

      I had a V6, took it in way after warranty expired, they replaced it for free no questions asked. The amazing service resulted in me buying the V10 from them.

    •  

      Definitely call. Back in the days before cordless dysons I had a part break after it got jammed in a door. Their service couldn't have been better. Instead of offering to sell me a replacement part like I hoped, they express couriered it to me for free.

    Get the v11 instead.

  •  

    Maybe it's just me but that's a lot of money of pay for a handheld vacuum cleaner - nearly a grand for a V11!

    Wow!

    •  

      I paid 800ish dollars for Dyson DC25 in 2008 and it is still working perfectly. The only time I had to change one part which cost me 35$. It is cheap considering how much and how long you can get the use of it I guess. I am planning for the next upgrade and wont mind spending that kind of money on a good product. Atleast back then the alternatives were pretty shitty too. So I don't know what else is in the market now that does as good a job as dyson.

        2007 here…

      •  

        We've got a 5yo Dyson handheld (not sure of model number) with we paid, I think, about $300. It works well although has needed a new battery. We have a large house, so a handheld is only useful for small cleaning jobs and we still use a corded Sebo (delux Miele) and a corded Dyson (one upstairs and one downstairs).

      •  

        Seriously when you start to use v10, you will realise you need to dump your DC25.

    • +2 votes

      Especially when a corded vacuum has about double the suction for over 50% less.

      •  

        Not to mention it doesn’t have batteries that will definitely need replacing at far more than $35 in less time.

        That’s fine if people are willing to pay extra and more frequently for the convenience. So long as they are aware that this is the compromise they are making.

    Waiting here for Costco to get the v11…

    I'm a V10 owner, but thought I should post this.

    The Dyson Cyclone V10 Is Not the Only Vacuum You’ll Need

    The thing I hate most about bagless vacs is how messy it is to empty. Watch this video and jump to 16:50 and see how much dust gets kicked up and onto you when you try and empty it.

    •  

      You empty it in your big bin outside and away from your face

      •  

        That's exactly where he did it in the video.

        Still kicks up.

        Believe me, I do it everywhere. It's the nature of fine dust being agitated by shaking.

        And because I don't have Dhalsim arms, I'm going to be near it no matter where I empty it.

        I usually enclose it in a bag, which seems to be the least messy. Emptying it at a bin, you're going to get it on your clothes. It kicks up then spreads out.

        And btw, it's difficult to get all the dust out. The more you shake it, the more it kicks up. You need to open it up and give it a good clean regularly, which is another messy procedure.

        I wish they never gave the free Dok. Then I wouldn't have been tempted to splurge $800 on it.

          That's why some councils ask you to do that so there is less dust for the truck and compactors

      Thats why I got a Miele, has way better build quality than a dyson, bagged with better dust filtering, as someone who suffers from major dust allergies, I can say that the miele has been way better for me.

    •  

      Our Dyson handheld is even harder to empty than that, a real PITA.

    Let me just say this
