Where to buy the cheapest Vax vacuum cleaners and Vax carpet cleaners
I was looking on Facebook the other day, when a
friend posted that they were a bit 'upset' (for want of a better word!) because
their Vax cleaner had just blown up and they needed to fork out for a new
one. Just before the Easter holidays, this is not what they needed!
sheer coincidence, I'd just received my latest email from the Argos Clearance shop on eBay and
remembered seeing a cheap Vax machine mentioned on there, so I dug it out and
took a closer look.
Turns out that Argos, and quite a few trusted
sellers on eBay, sell what are classed as 'refurbished' Vax cleaners.
These are machines that have been returned, checked, serviced and given a brand
new guarantee. I'd hazard a guess that many of them have only been used once, if
at all, and will be like new. Many shops, such as Argos, offer the customer the
chance to take an item home and then decide if they want to keep it. The brand
new guarantee that comes with most of these machines certainly takes away any
worry, that's for sure!
The thing about the refurbished Vax machines is
that they are a FRACTION of the price of a new one. I spotted one for
£40, which would have been
A vacuum cleaner is a tool. It does a job and then
you sling it in a cupboard. If I was looking for a cheap Vax, I'd buy a
refurbished one and spend the money I'd saved on having fun!

Another great way of finding cheap eBay bargains is to look for items that haven't had many bids. Just because they haven't received bids, it doesn't mean they aren't any good! Quite often, the item will be poorly described, have a bad photo or just finish at an unsociable time. Use the drop down box below to find items in each category that finish soon and have had 3 bids or less:
And here's a favourite for many....the good old 99p auctions! A lot of people start their auctions at 99p or less, partly because they believe that they'll attract more attention if they do and partly because there are often promotional incentives to do so. The result is a LOT of items sell for a pound or less! Select a section below to see what I mean:
And here's one more trick to use. Type your search term into the box below. Select your postcode and distance you'll travel and get the results. If any of them take your fancy, check the descriptions and if it doesn't say that they'll accept collection in person, ASK THEM.
Not everybody does accept collection, but there is no harm in asking. I've bought plenty of stuff like this and you'll often find you can save a lot by cutting out the postage.

A few buying tips:
Only fools rush in - don't grab the first bargain you see...however tempting!
Don't avoid Ebay - if a seller asks you to buy direct, avoid them. You lose all your protection from Ebay.
Pay with PayPal - again, you get extra protection this way.
Read the small print - be SURE that you know what you're buying!
Make sure you can pick the item up - bulky items often need a van and some muscle!
Make sure you can store it - bulk deals sound great, but ever tried fitting a million widgets in your hallway?
Have fun - buying a cheap bargain can be great fun. Enjoy it!
